Yes, it’s the week before Thanksgiving; things are moving and shaking around Miller right now! During my walk-about this morning, I was entertained by a class of learners who shared this wonderful Jack Prelutsky poem:
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 every day;
We make Pilgrims and Indians out of paper, glue, and clay.
Our bright Thanksgiving murals are displayed on all the walls;
And our cut-out paper pumpkins gaily decorate our halls.
Today I drew a turkey with long feathers and a face;
In the middle of November, our school’s a very busy place!
If this class project is any indication, there are many things to be thankful for around Miller (they are making “blessing” hats to wear later this week)! Our Kinder friends shared a wonderful lesson on nocturnal animals with our MISD Board of Trustees last night; they did an outstanding job of WOWing the audience and we are truly thankful to the learners and their classroom leaders for representing our school so well! The annual Field of Readers is tonight @ 6:00 p.m.–what a great family event for all; please join us! Our traditional family feast in the Miller Cafe is Thursday during all six lunches; we hope to see you here! Finally, our annual Super Outrageous Science (SOS) Day will be Friday morning all over the building. Miller scientists are so thankful for the extraordinary equipment and materials as well as the amazing opportunity to share some exciting experiments throughout the day with others!
Miller is indeed a very busy place in the middle of November! Here’s hoping you can join us at some point in the celebrations!
