Book Fair and Red Fever continues!

This just in . . . A raging case of Red Fever continues to sweep the Miller hallways throughout each instructional day this week!  Red Fever symptoms include spontaneous Texas Rangers’ pledges, songs, cheers, chants, and strange hand motions–a group even took over our morning announcements today!  Math, language, writing, reading, and science lessons include unusual baseball statistics, averages, stories, and problems to solve.  Learners and their classroom leaders continue to spread the Fever excitement as they send a positive, energetic vibe to the home team during the World Series.  Let’s go, Rangers, let’s go! (Clap, Clap!)  Thanks, first grade friends, for sharing your work, your excitement, and your passion for baseball with us!

As if Red Ribbon Week and Red Fever were not enough excitement (with Party Day coming on Friday too!), we add our fall Book Fair and the fourth grade program to the mix this week.  Learners are enJOYing the opportunity to browse and shop while our parent volunteers and Mrs. Bolgiano, library media specialist, assist everyone.  While shopping myself this afternoon, I happened upon four staff members (see, they’ve caught the fever too) taking time out to peruse the hundreds of options available.  Everyone is invited to stop by on Thursday to make those final selections; the Book Fair will be open 7:45 a.m. – 8:00 p.m. tomorrow evening.  Our Fourth Graders will also present their show, “Welcome To The Jungle” at 7:00 p.m. in the cafe.  Here’s hoping you join us for all these events at Miller this week!

Note:  The Student Honor Council announced just now we collected 819 cans today for our one-day food drive.  Way to go, Miller, way to go (clap, clap, clap)!
