Principal's Welcome

 


Greetings Milford Mill families,

I hope you enjoyed the summer months and will continue with our partnership in “Moving Milford to New Heights!” We celebrated a successful 2017-2018 school year in which our seniors earned over $9,000,000 in scholarships. Through the hard work of our teachers and staff, we graduated 92% of our seniors. This is another consecutive year of surpassing the BCPS graduation rate goal. I am so proud of our various improvements, recognitions, and awards earned by our students and staff.

During the 2018-2019 school year, our priority will be to graduate globally competitive students.  We will focus on increasing literacy across the curriculum and continuing our work to optimize our school climate.  At Milford Mill Academy (MMA) this year, we will work on providing more internship opportunities to expand career options for our students. We will provide more information on scholarships, financial aid assistance, and college payment plans. Together we will continue to reshape the MMA culture to help our children grow into respectful and responsible adults as we promote a safe school environment.

Many Improvements have been made to our school facilities, including a new turf field and lights at our stadium. These improvements will allow us to begin hosting Friday night football games. I am asking that all stakeholders respect our fields by keeping them clean, and that they respect our community by following the Maryland Code for parking near driveways (https://law.justia.com/codes/maryland/2010/transportation/title-21/subtitle-10/21-1004/) to avoid blocking any driveways in our area. We must work together to ensure safe and orderly events for our students, parents, and community. Please visit our website for a listing of all Friday night football games.

I will continue to hold myself accountable for keeping our children at the center of every decision I make. I expect the same accountability from our staff, parents, and community. The work of moving Milford to new heights has not been done in isolation or solely within the schoolhouse. This work has now extended to the community. My staff and I will need your continued support as we work together to further the best interests of our young scholars.

I am so proud to serve as your Principal, and I look forward to another successful school year. Please feel free to contact me at 443-809-0660 or via email kjoseph@bcps.org.

 

Respectfully,

Kyria L. Joseph

Dear Parent or Guardian,

In support of our students entering grade 9, we invite all incoming students to participate in an Early Entry program. Baltimore County Public Schools is excited to announce that it will again host a half-day “Orientation Day" on Thursday, August 30, 2018, for students entering grade 9 for the 2018–2019 school year. Students will participate in a variety of activities to become familiar with their new school setting, prior to the start of school. Students will review their class schedules, take a school tour and meet their counselor, teachers and administration.

Transportation will be provided for those students who are scheduled to take a bus to school. They will be picked up at their assigned bus stops during their regularly scheduled times. Students will also be transported home at the end of the half-day schedule. A complimentary lunch will be served to all participating students.

The Orientation Day is for students only and will not replace other school-based student-parent orientation activities. Additional information regarding the Orientation Day, specific bus stops and student schedules will be included in our “Welcome Back" correspondence in August.

Helpful videos have been prepared for viewing by students and families at home and over the summer.  These videos share experiences and helpful information about the transition to high school.  The videos are available on the main BCPS website under the “Students Page,” “Welcome Students,” and then the “Making the Transition” box.

We are looking forward to welcoming our new grade 9 students on Thursday, August 30, 2018 at 7:30am. Although the program is not required, we hope your child will take advantage of this opportunity.  Should you have any questions regarding Orientation Day, please contact us at 443 809-0660. The first regular day of school for all students is Tuesday, September 4, 2018.

 

Respectfully,

Kyria Joseph

Principal
