A volunteer stopped me in the hallway today to compliment the blog, the topics, and the “funnies” of everyday campus life. She also challenged me to send out more information about upcoming events (ahead of time) as well as to continue writing about them after-the-fact…consider it done!
Here’s a glance at some important February events in our campus life at LME:
Tutus and Ties: Our enthusiastically active PTO group is sponsoring the annual event THIS Saturday, Feb. 9th in our Miller Cafe from 7:00-9:00 p.m. The theme is Tutus and Ties: A Night in Paris! A live DJ, door prizes, pictures, flowers, food, and fun are the main events for this Sunday-Dress attired evening. Tickets are still available for $25.00/couple ($35.00/couple at the door).
Valentine’s Day Parties: Our final class parties will take place on Thursday, February 14th. HS/KG/1st/2nd grades will party from 9:00-10:00 a.m. and 3rd/4th/5th grades will party from 1:30-2:30 p.m. You can still make a reservation to attend by letting the front office know so your visitor badge is ready. We always appreciate the extraordinary work our room parents and volunteers provide our homeroom classes during these highly anticipated and special events!
Thoughtful Writing Thursdays: To support our 4th grade friends who spend intense time each Thursday during February and March in writing preparation and practice, we wear our school-appropriate warm-ups. Help up Warm-Up to Writing in the next few weeks!
Our Destination Imagination group will compete in the regional tournament in Mineral Wells ISD on Saturday, February 23rd. We’re so excited to have two creative elementary teams representing LME this year!
LME Yearbooks are on sale now and you don’t want to miss your opportunity to purchase this colorful book of 2012-2013 school memories! Your last change to order is February 28th and the cost this year is $20.00. Last year was a sell-out, so please order now.
Our Math Pentathletes are meeting weekly now in preparation for their annual tournaments. Division I and II will compete on Saturday, April 6th in Mansfield ISD. Division III will compete this year on Saturday, April 27th in Glen Rose ISD. Go Math Pentathletes!
The Miller CATCH Committee is sponsoring their annual Chili-Cookoff and Family Night on Thursday, February 21st from 6:00-8:00 p.m. in the Miller Cafe. The entry fee is $5.00 and the fees go into the winner’s pot. Chili entries should arrive by 5:45 with judging starting at 6:15 p.m. After judging is completed, all chili will be served for $1.00 a bowl. No reservations are needed; come and enJOY some great chili and family fun!
Rowdy Run 5K Event: Come out and show us you believe in a healthy lifestyle. The enormously popular Rowdy Runners Club is sponsoring their first annual 5K on Saturday, March 2nd @ 8:00 a.m. The start/finish is at Kimmel Park in Midlothian. You can register at any elementary campus by picking up the application or online using http://www.active.com/running/midlothian-tx/rowdy-run-2013 (additional fees apply). The real question is…will you beat Mrs. Van across the finish line?! 🙂
As you can see, there are multiple opportunities to be involved with our campus; we sure hope you choose to spend time with us soon!
