Take us out to the Ballpark!

Today was our all-campus field trip.  In keeping with our “All Stars and MVPs…Miller is the best place to be” sports theme this year (and being the die-hard Rangers fans most of us are anyway), we embarked on special tours of the Ballpark in Arlington.  Thanks to the generosity of the Rangers Organization, Ms. Billie Ball (her real name and our coordinator), our parents who supported our campus fundraiser in September, and some very kind campus/community angels, every student and staff member (along with 300+ parents) enjoyed a real behind-the-scenes peek into the entire Rangers Organization!  Not to sound biased, but I heard “this is the BEST field trip ever” at least 73 times . . .  🙂  I was equally told (probably more times) how well behaved, polite, and attentive all our groups were too!  🙂

As promised, our students will receive their special commemorative surprise to bring home in their backpacks on Thursday, so please be watching for it!  Again, thanks to the many special folks who made certain every child at LME enjoyed a fun and engaging campus field trip experience, especially our teachers and the bus drivers.  These all-campus journeys are quite the undertaking, but the reward of a real “Miller Family Trip” (just like your own family vacation) is a common learning experience our students will take with them for a lifetime.  Bravo, LME, for a simply extraordinary day!
Note:  There are soooo many pictures from today…I couldn’t choose just a few to share.  Several teachers are sending out montages on their blogs, so please check with your homeroom teacher for copies of pics from this special day!
