    E-learning Packets  

     

    Due to the tremendous impact of Coronavirus on our community, Richland One schools are closed through April 30, 2020. E-learning lessons are posted on the Mill Creek website under the e-learning button near the top of the page. Some lessons may require a separate sheet/s of paper to answer from the slides. Please make certain your child turns these in when we return to school with day, name and homeroom teacher.  In addition, printed copies of learning packets have been mailed home that were not picked up by last Friday. The faculty, staff and principal look forward to the return of students so that the journey toward excellence in learning can continue.  

    Thank you-

    Charles Delaughter, Principal

  • RICHLAND ONE TO PROVIDE WEEK’S WORTH OF MEALS

    FOR STUDENTS ON MONDAYS STARTING MARCH 30; 

    PARENTS ASKED TO COMPLETE ONLINE FORM

     

    While schools are closed, Richland One is providing “grab-and-go” breakfasts and lunches for students on weekdays at designated locations. Starting March 30, families will receive a week’s worth of meals on Mondays.

     

    “The change will reduce the number of trips families have to make to the pick-up locations for meals. The meals will be picked up once a week for the entire week,” said Richland One Nutrition Services Director Tracy Dixon. 

     

    Along with offering curbside meal pick-ups, the district also has been making bus deliveries to a limited number of sites. With the new meal distribution process, bus deliveries will end after Friday, March 27, Dixon said. Richland One is working with community partners to provide home deliveries to parents who are unable to pick up meals for their children from one of the 10 sites.

     

    To help the Nutrition Services staff know how many meals to prepare, Richland One parents are asked to complete an online form. Parents can access the form directly at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/R1Meals or via the district’s website (www.richlandone.org). Parents will receive a follow-up email after they complete the form.

     

    All children 18 and under are eligible to receive the free meals. Parents can drive to any of the locations, remain in their vehicles and staff will distribute the meals curbside. The pick-up hours will be 9:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. on Mondays. Children must be present to receive the meals.

     

    Meal Pick-up Sites Starting March 30 (MONDAYS ONLY – 9:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.)

  • Your encouraging words for kids can help them thrive in school and life! How do your words matter? 

    Positive words from parents, teachers, and mentors are a rich source of internal motivation and guidance to children and teens. Often, kids recall your words of encouragement for years to come.

    Encouraging Words Vs. Praise

    1. Be Honest. Children are the first to recognize when your words are not sincere. ...
    2. Focus on Effort, Not Ability. ...
    3. Be Specific. ...
    4. Avoid the Need to Compare. ...                                                                      
    5. Don't Over-Encourage.
    6. Don't Use Encouragement to Control

    LEAP Success Chart:  A Classroom Behavior System

     

    “Leaping to Success!”

     

    Here at Mill Creek, our students are challenged each year to LEAP toward success.  This system will allow students to gain positive and negative consequences for their choices and behaviors.  Classroom behaviors will be monitored with a color chart, in which students will move personal clothes pins when making exceptionally good choices (move up) or when needing redirection from the teacher (move down).  Every student begins each day on green.  The value of each color is described below:

     

     

    Purple

    Blue

    Green

    Yellow

    Red

     

    Outstanding Day

     

    Student exceeds expectation and demonstrates all LEAP traits.

    (small incentive- daily or weekly).

    Good Day

     

    Student represented at least 3 LEAP traits (small incentive- daily or weekly).

     

    Ready to Learn

     

    Normal expectation; no behavior problems (verbal praise)

    Think About It

     

    Warning (Verbal or written)

     

    Parent Contact

     

    Parents are contacted and this communication is documented in the Parent teacher Communication Log Book. (A discipline referral might also be completed)

     

    The LEAP Success Chart system is designed to teach students to make positive choices and redirect negative behaviors.  Parents will be notified daily of student behaviors through classroom notes, agenda books, behavior folders, etc.  Please discuss with your child daily the LEAP expectations for student behaviors.  We believe all students can raise their LEAP to success every day!
