MVP status…

In sports, the MVP Award (Most Valuable Player) is an honor typically bestowed upon the best performing player on a team.  At LaRue Miller Elementary, our MVPs qualify for the honor by going well above and beyond the academic standard.  MVPs show outstanding character traits and clearly role model the Miller Essential 5 each and every day.  A student selected as an MVP by a team of teachers and peers is honored during Friday Miller Rallies in front of the entire campus for everything from performing random acts of kindness to consistently sharing compassion with others as a way of life.

Mrs. Bass and I thoroughly enJOYed a special event this morning following Miller Rally.  The 1st Quarter MVPs spent social time with us where we noshed on snacks and visited about everything from our campus field trip to what everyone likes to do for fun.  The common thread noted during our many discussions was obvious:  each student sets personal goals and is always striving to get better in all areas of his or her life…they do what it takes to make others around them even better.  At their young age, these learners exhibit the traits of leaving powerful legacies one day!

“Climb high; climb far…your goal the sky and your aim the star.”  Congratulations and huge thanks today go to our MVPs so far this year:  Ethan, Charlie, Aiden, Sawyer, Seth, Maddie, Connor, McKenna, Miranda, Madelynn, and Darren!  🙂
