Parent Meeting: In preparation for the 21-22 school year Miller Middle School is hosting two parent meetings. The meetings are geared toward providing as much information as we can on what we are thinking next year will look like.
Join 9-R Board of Education members Wednesday, June 16, 2021, from 12-1pm, to have an informal conversation about how everything is going for you and your student. The meeting will be on Zoom, and a live interpreter will be available.
We are committed to sharing our student achievement data with transparency. We recognize the incredible effort put forth by our staff this year and are grateful for their perseverance and flexibility. Yet, our end-of-year assessment data tells us that our students need intentional and unified support to ensure that the impacts of the pandemic are not long-lasting and far-reaching in our students' literacy and math skills. We are working with great urgency to turn around our historical trend of under-serving portions of our community and to minimize the impact of disrupted learning COVID-19 has had on all of our learners.
Congratulations 9-R families, students and staff… we made it! This was a year for the books and certainly created many new memories. While it wasn’t a typical school year for any of us, learning to live with masks, quarantines, and ever-changing school schedules it was still an amazing school year and we have so much to celebrate and be grateful for.
Manna bags with nonperishable foods will be available outside of Needham Elementary, Animas Valley Elementary, Florida Mesa Elementary and at the front doors of the Administration building starting 6/10 and 6/11. Bags will be available Thursday and Friday of each week.
Durango School District 9-R recognizes the opportunity gaps that COVID has created for our learners. This summer, we are creating a summer learning program for students in Kindergarten-5th grade who have experienced a loss of access to instruction that has resulted in below grade-level math and reading achievement.
Miller Middle School is a community of well-rounded learners who achieve academic excellence for college and career readiness, as well as social emotional awareness, in a safe, supportive learning environment.
