It’s the week before Thanksgiving; things are moving and shaking around Miller today! During my walk-about this morning, I was stopped by a learner who shared this poem from poet, Jack Prelutsky:
It’s the middle of November and our weather’s crisp and cool;
Thanksgiving’s getting closer so there’s lots to do at school.
Our teacher gives us projects that we work on every day;
We make Indians and Pilgrims out of paper, glue, and clay.
Our bright Thanksgiving murals are displayed on all the wall;
And our cut-out paper pumpkins gaily decorate the halls.
Today I drew a turkey with a fat and funny face;
In the middle of November, school’s a very busy place!
Yes, we have so many activities going on throughout the coming week! Our second graders present tonight at the MISD Board Meeting. We have a Thanksgiving Feast (prior reservations required) tomorrow in our cafe during all lunch times. The annual Science Fair is going on upstairs all week where our Miller scientists are thankful for extraordinary equipment, supplies, and the opportunity to share some exciting experiments throughout the week (special thanks to our PTO Volunteers who serve each day assisting our learners!). Speaking of PTO, they will meet this week on Thurs; Nov. 17 @ 6:30 p.m. in our cafe. To top off the week, our annual SOS (Super Outrageous Science) Day will be a full day on Friday where we also have the world-champion “Science of SPIN ” group presenting some fun lessons with spinning tops and yo-yos to all learners.
Miller is indeed a very busy place this week; here’s hoping you join us at some point in the celebrations! 🙂
