As the teacher asked the question, I knew this answer was coming: “What is one important thing we have now we didn’t have 10 years ago?” The child responded, “ME!” 🙂 “We also didn’t have a LaRue Miller Elementary School, but I’m certainly glad we do now!” 🙂 Where would we be without both?
In the past few days, we’ve studied our past to open the doors of possibilities for our future; in other words, we’ve celebrated some extraordinary milestones. Family events like our annual PTO Sock Hop brought out an enormous crowd on a gloomy Friday evening where energy, dance moves, and the laughter were high. The Photo Booth alone provided two solid hours of entertainment and the results are simply amazing! Thanks to our many PTO moms and dads, our LME staff members, and our learning community for creating a festive evening of family fun!
Hanz and Franz made their appearance on last week to remind us of the POWER of Miller this year. With an updated carpenter wardrobe and tool belts stocked with tools, they arrived on scene to “pump us up!” We look forward to the big event on Thursday, September 25th throughout the day; we hope you join us.
Today, we celebrated the return of our beloved Mrs. Bly in fifth grade by “pinking out” our campus. Students, parents, and staff members showed their support by “Standing UP to Cancer,” wearing pink, and cheering her return to class.! As one wise young friend reminded me, “Because we never know what it’s really like to walk in someone’s shoes, we need to be kind anyway; it’s hard being a person…” Yep, little one; from sock hops to the POWER of pink, we’re all in this together
