General Info, Schedule and Practices

Schedule & Practices

Cafeteria

Hot lunch is served daily for students in grades K-5.  Lunch is $2.75 each day.  Each student has a lunch account, and money can be placed in the child's lunch account at any time.  Students who bring lunch may buy milk for $.75 each.  Free or reduced priced lunches are available to qualified families.  Application forms for free or reduced price lunch are online HERE.

Child Care

SCUSD Millikin Extended Day maintains a fee-based child care center at Millikin for students in grades K-5.  The center is open before and after school.  For information call 423-1806.

Disaster Preparedness

A copy of Millikin's "Disaster Preparedness Handbook" is in each classroom and in the school office.  The manual includes information on fire drills, earthquakes, and building evacuation and is available for review at any time.  In the event of a disaster, local radio stations will have emergency information.  Parents complete a Disaster Preparedness Form and provide an emergency snack pack for each child at the beginning of the year.  The form and snack are kept in the child's classroom.

Music

All students participate in regular sing-along activities and may perform in a holiday program and other programs during the year.  Students in grades 3-5 may participate in Choir.  The Choir participates in evening programs in December and May and other programs during the year.  Students in grades 4 - 5 may participate in instrumental music.  Students will miss a portion of class for one instructional session each week.  With some exceptions, students must provide their own instrument.  Information and permission slips for Choir and instrumental music go home in September.

Parent Rights and Obligations

Parents receive annual written notification of their rights and obligations as prescribed by law.

Physical Education and Sports

Students in grades K-5 participate in physical education with their teacher or a PE instructor (3-5).  During lunch recess students in grade K-5 may participate in organized activities.  Students in grades 4 - 5 may participate on after school sports teams such as flag football and volleyball.  Practice is during the lunch recess and after school.  Games are played after school against other SCUSD schools.  Students must maintain satisfactory playground behavior and academic effort in class to participate.  Information and permission slips for after school sports teams go home prior to each season.

PTA

The Millikin Basics+ PTA plays a vital role in the success of our school.  Members encourage and model active parent participation in the child's education.  They do extensive volunteer work at school, and they provide significant financial support through fundraising.  PTA is an important communication link between home and school.  We encourage all parents and other family members to join.  General PTA meetings are held several times during the year.  If you would like to participate on the Millikin PTA Executive Board, contact our PTA President.  The Board meets at 5:00 p.m. the second Tuesday of each month.

Report Cards and Conferencing

A Conferencing Schedule is sent home in September.  Report cards are issued each trimester K-5 to reflect academic growth, standards proficiency, citizenship and effort.  Progress in basic subjects and behavior is graded A - F.  Progress in other areas is marked Satisfactory (S) or Unsatisfactory (U).

A parent/teacher conference is scheduled for all students (K-5) during the first trimester and during subsequent trimesters for children performing below grade level.  Other conferences may be scheduled at parent or teacher request.  Parents are urged to attend all scheduled conferences.

School Events

The monthly calendar detailing all school events and activities is sent home at the beginning of each school year in the Parent and Student Handbook.  Information on upcoming and changed dates are published in the Millikin Weekly eNewsletter Update each Wednesday.  For additional information on school events, please call 423-1800.
