Effective Parent-School Communication
Teacher of the Month
Hello, my name is Meggan Fowler. I was born and raised in Palm Springs, California. I moved from Palm Springs to Los Angles were I lived for 10 years before moving to Las Vegas. I have been married for a year and half and have been teaching for 13 years. In those 13 years I have taught preschool, transitional kindergarten, 4th grade, and 5th grade. This is my second year teaching 4th grade here at McMillan ES. I love to be spontaneous and try new things. I have been skydiving, jumped off of a waterfall, hiked up a muddy mountain in Samoa, and eventually would like to bungee jump. I have traveled numerous countries, Paris, France is my favorite. My favorite sport is volleyball. While I was living in California I played in an adult volleyball league, and ran the LA Marathon. My one piece of advice to you is, you only get one life, try new things, and live life to the fullest.

The McMillan Elementary School learning community seeks to create a challenging learning environment that encourages high expectations and college and career readiness through standards-based, data driven instruction. We strive to ensure that all students become independent and cooperative learners demonstrating respect, responsibility, and cultural diversity through rigorous content while increasing technology as 21st century learners.
The following are district-approved celebrations: Halloween, Christmas, and Valentine’s Day. No other celebrations are allowed during the instructional day. Students who bring in treats (cookies only) for their birthday may pass them out at dismissal to prevent bugs, maintain the cleanliness of the classrooms, and not to interrupt instruction. Parents are to deliver the treats to the front office only in the morning, and the student will pick them up from the front office. Please send only packaged single serving items. Please do not bring in balloons or flowers. These items cannot be delivered to the classrooms, as they are a distraction to the learning environment. Please note that all food must be purchased from a store. Homemade items cannot be served.
NO EXCEPTIONS WILL BE MADE

Homework enhances and reinforces skills learned during class, provides students an opportunity to practice skills independently, and helps students build personal responsibility. Homework is assigned Monday through Thursday. Homework is an extension of activities that students engage in at school. Students can expect to have 10 minutes per grade level of homework in addition to at least 20 minutes of reading each evening. Homework should be able to be completed independently, although parental support of home academic activities is encouraged. If children are spending exceptional amounts of time completing homework assignments, please contact the teacher.
