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
