The February edition of Miller Matters is now available!
The January edition of Miller Matters is now available. I've also included my weekly message to students below. Stay warm and safe, and have a great week!
It’s important that we take a few moments to recognize the important national holiday that was celebrated yesterday. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was a Baptist minister and a champion of civil rights, whose tireless work during the 1950’s and 60’s was instrumental in helping our nation combat long standing and divisive inequality, racism, and segregation.
Tragically, Dr. King’s life was cut short at just 39 years old. But Dr. King’s work continues. Each January, our country honors his memory, his leadership, and the ongoing struggle for justice and equality for all people.
During his famous “I have a dream speech,” Dr. King spoke powerfully when he said, “one day, this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: we hold these truths to be self evident: that all men are created equal.”
It’s been 54 years since Dr. King gave this famous speech, but his words remain incredibly powerful. If you are looking for inspiration, or words of hope for our country, especially during what seem to be such trying and difficult times, I encourage you to take a few moments to watch this powerful moment in American history.
As we go about our week, let’s not forget to treat each other well and take a little extra time to understand each other a bit better. Let’s honor Dr. King’s memory, and more importantly, the work that he did to fight for justice, equality, and understanding.

Here is my weekly message to students this morning:
Today I want to talk to you about R-E-S-P-E-C-T. That’s right. Respect. It’s an important behavior in life and an important part of our Miller Way here at East. We expect all students and staff to demonstrate respect towards others. Respect, in its simplest form, means treating others the same way you want to be treated. It means showing kindness and consideration for others. It means accepting others for who they are. Respect is not a new idea. It’s one that I know you’ve been taught since your youngest years, and it’s one you’ll continue to hear about as you grow older and move forward in school and in life. We hear so much about respect and its importance because it is so important to helping we humans get along and work together, especially when we may not be alike, understand each other, or agree.
So start the new year off right by re-committing to RESPECT here at school and at home. Make a pledge, or New Year's resolution, to use RESPECT in your everyday life. You, your school, your friends and peers, and your family will better off as a result!
