First Day Fabulousness!


First day…cheers with little tears…smiles and with a few trials…overall, an extraordinary first day success!  As we started unloading big yellows in the early morning sunrise, a young friend bounded down the steps onto the sidewalk and threw herself at me with a big laugh:  “I just LOVE all this first day fabulousness!”  🙂  “What do you think of my fabulous first day outfit and new haircut?”  Eager to the get the year going, she volunteered to assist at the door to greet friends, share smiles, and help our Kinder friends find their way.  Later at lunch, she hugged me again, “By the way, Mrs. Van…everyone looks so fabulous in their new Miller staff shirts; teachers should wear uniform school shirts everyday.”  🙂  (We actually have several who would agree too.)  She even ended the day loading the bus again while telling me about her favorite part–“fabulous math games!”  🙂  I think it’s safe to say her day was “fabulous.”


Our PTO Board was on hand early to share yummy treats and eats with our new parents during the annual BooHoo/YaHoo Back-to-School Breakfast following the morning announcements.  Several LME volunteers, including our own school namesake, Mrs. LaRue Miller, were on hand to welcome and greet learners and their families, share a hug, listen to summer stories, or give a high-five.  The Chadwell Family provided a scrumptious lunch for our staff-on-the-go and then Mr. Van brought by icy treats to cool down the staff after the 104+ car line (we did finish by 3:20 today—truly a first-day record for LME!).  Yes, it was first day of overall fabulousness with fun to spare.  Welcome back to LME and to the 2014-2015 school year!  🙂
