Due to snow and icy road conditions across the District that would prohibit the safe transportation of students to school, all schools will be closed. This is not a remote learning day. All after school and evening activities are canceled.
Due to snow and ice in some parts of the district, all schools will be on a 2-hour delay today, March 17th, 2023, to provide additional time for buses to safely transport students to schools. This means that buses will run 2 hours later than during normal times. If you drop your child off at school, please remember that staff will also be on a two-hour delay. Full day Pre-K programs are also on a two hour delay. Morning Pre-K programs have been canceled. Afternoon Pre-K programs will operate on a regular schedule.
Ms. Dakota Goldberg, Milagro's math and AVID teacher, loves Pie and especially loves having her PI and eating it too on International PI Day! Milagro had a day long event filled with Pi, Pie Walks, Pie Throwing and, of course, pie eating! Fun Fact from Ms. Goldberg~ At an event outside Tokyo in 2006, Akira Haraguchi set an unofficial world record for reciting the most digits of pi: 100,000 over more than 16 hours. So, how’d he do it? In his mind, he linked each digit with a syllable and created a collection of epic stories from the words those syllables formed. For Haraguchi, pi is more than just a number—it’s a spiritual calling. He told The Guardian: “All things in this world, including ourselves, are aggregate sums of atoms, which are made up of rotating electrons. The ultimate history of mankind is moving toward a happy ending for people of all races. The Earth, the galaxy, and the universe all rotate. In other words, I think rotation is the absolute truth. So as long as I’m thinking about pi, I think I can live a life according to truth.” And a BIG thank you from our Community Schools Coordinator, Diana Padilla to Ms. Goldberg for the wonderful idea to celebrate 3.14. Ms. Pope, Ms. Mayer, Ms. Goldberg and Smiths for donation of pies and whipped cream. You guys are awesome. Also thank you to the wonderful Admin, Staff and Teachers who were willing to be targets and such great sports; Ms. Baca, Ms. Trujillo, Ms. Greig, Mr. Gutiérrez, Ms. Montoya, Ms. Goldberg, Ms. Riggins, Ms. Douthit, Mr. Pacheco, Mr. Lucero, and Adan.
