School News and Info  

Incoming 8th grade summer reading connect ed message sent on July 14, 2016:

Dear Parents and Guardians of Incoming 8th Grade Students:

This is Tara Bennett, Principal of the Jr./Sr. High School calling about this summer's 8th grade required reading book, The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian, which is a powerful and provocative story about poverty and discrimination in our society.

I want to bring to your attention that the novel contains some sexual content and language, most noticeably on pages 26 and 64, and I want to share with you the reasons why this book was selected for our students to read.  The novel's themes about identity and self esteem, poverty, family relations, racism and discrimination, bullying and hopes and aspirations will be used to engage students in conversations about issues of social justice and cultural awareness through class discussion and activities when we return to school in August. 

However, I also respect that you may not feel that the references to sexual subject matter in this book are appropriate for your child at this time.  If this is the case, I would like to offer you the following options: 1) have your child read the book, but skip pages 26 and 64; or, 2) your child may read the alternative novel, titled Does My Head Look Big in This? by Randa Abdel-Fattah.  This novel also addresses many timely and important issues, including themes of racism and discrimination, family relations, self-esteem and self-identity.

More information about summer reading, including a copy of this message, can be found on the Jr./Sr. High School website.  Thank you for your ongoing partnership in your child's education.  Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.

Enjoy the rest of your summer.

This Connec Ed voice message was sent to parents/guardians on Friday afternoon, October 9, 2015:

Dear Millbury Parents and Guardians, I am excited to announce the opening of our Aspen X2 Parent Portal for grades 7-12. The parent portal is an opportunity for you to take an active role in your child's education. You do this by registering for an account which will provide access to your child's grades and attendance. Portal registration is available on our website at www.millburyschools.org. You will click on the Aspen icon found on the left sidebar. You will then find a SIGN UP tab allowing you to register. A confirmation email will be sent once your registration has been accepted. This will take 2-3 school days to complete. If you have questions about the Parent Portal, please submit them through the Contact Us tab under the Aspen icon. We look forward to developing with you this new partnership! Enjoy the long weekend.
