Miller Elementary Parent Engagement Information
Greetings and welcome to Miller Elementary's Parent Engagement Page!
My name is Natarsha Williams and I am your Parent Involvement Coordinator. Research shows that students with parents or guardians that are involved in their education are more successful academically. One of our school's goals this year is to increase the percentage of students reading on grade level in conjunction with the district's goal of a focus on literacy. Please be sure to take advantage of every opportunity we offer to help increase your child's reading level!
Now ask yourself...do you know your child's reading level?
I encourage all parents/guardians, grandparents, aunts, uncles, etc. to participate in all of the wonderful academic events and activities we offer. Your child will thank you! I look forward to working with each of you as we Rocket to Success!
I am located in room 404 and can be reached at 478-929-7814 ext. 55282 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
PARENT ACTION TEAM!
Parent input is a vital component of the Title I Program. We invite parents to join the Parent Action Team (PAT) which meets twice per year.
The purpose of the PAT is to develop and revise Title I documents such as the Parent Involvement plan and the school-parent compact. Parent suggestions are always welcomed and encouraged throughout the school year and from the parent satisfaction survey in the spring.
Your input also guides the planning of the workshops and activities for the next school year which we include in our school's Parent Involvement Plan. We gladly welcome your input and ideas!
Join us in the cafeteria on:
December 8, 2016 @ 5:30pm
February 16, 2017 @ 5:30pm
Contact Natarsha Williams if you are interested in more information about the PAT at 478-929-7814 ext. 55282 or at email@example.com.

Title I Information
Title I is the nation's largest assistance program for schools. It provides funding for increasing student achievement in schools selected on the basis of the economic level of families in a school's attendance zone. The purpose of Title I is to 1) Help every child receive a high quality education
2) Build capacity for parent engagement
3) Provide professional development
4) Meet the requirement of Part A of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 (ESEA)
Miller Elementary is a Title I School. We are eligible for Title I based on our percentage of students eligible for free and reduced lunch. All students in our school benefit from these funds. All Title I schools must include parent input in the development of a written Parent Involvement policy.
