We celebrated the end of this week with our annual PTO Sock Hop, Classic Car Show, and the first Family Night Event of our school year. We certainly hopped into it tonight with our best moves, some sweet treats, cute photos, and lots of laughing conversations. Every type of music from those 50’s classics to present-day group dances were cleverly spun for fun in the gym with laser lights and twinkling brights. Students shared new dance moves, taught the adults some interesting steps, and shared some laughs (sometimes at our expense). I was specifically told, “you’ve got some interesting moves there, but you might want to adjust them at your age…or at least take an Advil tonight!” Good advice . . . 🙂
We also enjoyed touring outside and talking with owners of several classic vehicles. Several of our dads tested each other’s knowledge of each one (and that of the owners as well). One little friend asked, “Will you show us how to burn rubber again?!” 🙂
Of course, none of this is possible without the many PTO volunteers and parents who spent countless hours organizing, planning, decorating, checking everyone in, serving soda floats and other treats, dancing, laughing, and welcoming new friends to our LME Family. Our highly active PTO Board members this year are: Angela Shaver, Gayle Turner, Nicole Blackmon, Kirsten Wilson, Wendy Hein, Khristi Hullett, Amy Byers, Tracy Brown, Keisha Buchanan, Stacy Moore-Helms, Lori Walk, Christie Clenney, Julie Bates, Cara Roberson, and Heather Cooper. Please watch the PTO website @ http://www.millerpto.com and “like” them on Facebook (LaRue Miller PTO) for the latest updates and information throughout the school year. PTO is the lifeline of our campus everyday and we can’t imagine having school without them! Ladies, you always ROCK IT here at Miller and tonight was no exception!
Family events such as tonight bring our entire learning community together to relax, enjoy, and celebrate. Our thanks to everyone involved–those who assisted, who attended, and who chose to spend a glorious autumn evening here with us at LME!
