It is with great pleasure that we take this opportunity to welcome you to Miami-Yoder School.

We are extremely proud of the programs we offer our students. Students can assure their success by accepting academic challenges in a responsible way. Remember that your child’s success in school will be directly proportional to their efforts and your support. Students CAN be successful if they think they can!!!

Any school is the reflection of the students, staff, and community. The Miami-Yoder School is no exception. Our school is a reflection of the Rush-Yoder area. Our school belongs to the public…it’s your school. The educational programs, activities, and employment opportunities offered by the district are offered without regard to race, color, sex, religion, national origin,
age, marital status or handicaps. The faculty and administration are willing to discuss student educational progress or any portion of the school’s educational program with its patrons.

This handbook has been developed by our staff and administrators to help students and parents learn as much as possible about school policies and procedures and the services we offer. It is a quick reference that you will find useful when questions arise throughout the school year. Interpretation of items in the handbook, and issues that are not included in the handbook shall be the responsibility of the principal.

Whether you are joining us for the first time or have been with us for a number of years, we encourage you to become an active member of Miami-Yoder School. Our “Commitment to Excellence” is our promise to you, and our expectation of every student.

Please take time to read through the handbook with your student. Among the forms students will receive is one stating a parent/guardian has read the handbook with their students, and both understand its content. As with all the forms students will receive, it is to be returned during the first week of attendance.

Thank you for your support in making the 2014-2015 school year successful and enjoyable.

Once again, welcome!

Sheila Hartley

Elementary Principal
