Home of the Simbas

Welcome! My name is Dan Kirchhevel and I am honored to be the principal of Miller Park Elementary School, home of the Simbas. It is a privilege to be part of a highly experienced and skilled staff of teachers and support staff. I am eager to carry on the tradition of academic and community success at Miller Park Elementary School.

Miller Park is a place where everyone is respected, hard work is valued and high expectations are realized and celebrated! Respect, responsibility and discipline are consistently modeled each day to ensure our school is a positive, proactive, respectful and productive learning environment.

I believe that every student that walks through our school doors can learn and deserves the very best we can offer.

We look forward to working as a team to maintain the high rigor of academic excellence at Miller Park! I wish all of you the best as we start out the school year. Thank you for giving us such great kids to teach.

Numeracy can be expressed in many different ways. Here at Miller Park we implement several numeracy strategies that allow for student engagement as well as differentiated instruction towards student success.

  • Math Work Walls in the classrooms and the commons area
  • Use of manipulatives for whole group and small group instruction
  • Use of the 2-4-2 strategy implemented in bell work as well as homework
  • Weekly school wide estimation challenge
  • Student math journals
  • Think-Pair-Shares
  • Math Talks

End Of Year Letter

Dear Miller Park Families,

As we enter the final week of this academic year, thank you for your support during such a uniquely challenging time. Your partnership in student learning is more important than ever.

We are writing with important information to support learning over the summer and how to pick up those materials next week.

Summer Learning Materials

We are excited to provide your elementary student with a package of books, reading response journal, sight word flashcards for grades K-3 and a Scholastic reading and math workbook over the summer.

Students should take at least 30 minutes every day to read. Our Summer Reading Challenge is back, so make sure to log that time here: https://district.ops.org/ABOUTOPS/SummerReading.aspx#103181328-current-progress.

To keep students engaged through the summer, learning resources will continue to be available online. You can find that information here: https://libguides.ops.org/athome.

Other Materials:

We have some promotional items for our fifth graders to recognize their incredible accomplishments as they move up to Middle School. Be sure to pick these up!

If your student has not picked up their Scholastic Pictures yet, we will also be distributing them at this time.

Technology and Equipment Return

To limit traffic and prioritize health and safety, we only ask our fifth graders or students who will not return to the Omaha Public School district in the fall to return items checked out from school.

· Library Books

· Music Instruments

For the Health and Safety of All

The distribution and return will follow a drive-through format. Please drive to the parking lot on the East side of the building and pull your car up to the back-cafeteria doors. Students and families will remain in their cars. Staff and volunteers will be wearing masks and come to your vehicle with your student’s material. If you or someone in your home is ill, do not visit school. Please contact me by email to find another option. Dan.Kirchhevel@ops.org
