GRINCHy ways!

KGrinch2He’s a mean one, that Mr. Grinch!  Our Kinder and first grade teams studied the clever writings of Dr. Suess by celebrating GRINCH 1stGrinch3Day in their classrooms.  From Cindy-Lou-Who to Mr. Grinch himself, learners and classroom leaders read, wrote, computed, and explored the imaginary world of the extraordinary Dr. Suess and his The Grinch Who Stole Christmas.  What a fun, clever way to celebrate story-telling, silly rhymes, and the spirit of the holiday season!  So here’s your question today:  What’s your favorite holiday story and why is it important to you?

Ollie3In other news, Ollie the Jolly OWL continues to fly about sharing wit and wisdom along the way.  She appeared in the Kinder hall where they were measuring Ollie7objects with creative units; she became one of the special objects to measure width and length during the lesson.  Later, Ollie was found by a student under the bench in the clinic, reading up on how to keep herself healthy for the holidays.  She especially loved the Wellness song this week and wanted to get more ollienurseinformation on how to prevent the flu, so she asked to point out the important steps to follow during this busy season.  Thanks, Ollie; here’s to keeping us all well, healthy, and wise!  Where do you think she’ll turn up next?

May you have a wonderful weekend of holiday fun!

Note:  Our Penguin Patch Holiday Shop, sponsored by the PTO, opens on Monday morning! 

Miller Style!

Yes, we have a definite Miller Style at LME and today was certainly no exception…what an exciting week (with a full moon and everything!).  🙂

Our Bluebonnet Book Bowl Team came in second in the district IMG_0007competition this morning and we enJOYed lunch out as a special treat.  BBB requires learners to read all the books on the Texas Bluebonnet Book List for 2013 (they also participate in voting to choose the TX Winner too).  MISD then holds a competition where each campus sends a BBB Team to compete and share their vast knowledge (like a Jeopardy Game in format).  Big BRAVOS go out to these outstanding reader leaders from LME:  Natalia, Bailey, Ella, Skyler (team captain), Hannah, Bryce, and staff sponDSC_1352sor, Mrs. Bolgiano (Library Media Specialist extraordinaire!).

Our second graders presented their fabulous program Miller Style to a packed house last night and again during Miller Rally this morning.  Our students especially enJOYed the song/dance number, “Miller Style,” with marvelous Miller moves, words, and actions.  The entire show, written by the exceptional Fine Arts Team @ IMG_0916LME, was truly a hit!

We also had several Kinder friends celebrating the work of Dr. Suess throughout the day–what a delightful way to learn about the wonderful Suessical genius of Theodore Geisel!

IMG_0906No, there is never a dull moment and this wonderful week is certainly no exception at LME!  EnJOY your weekend…only five days to go until everyone receives a much-needed spring break!  🙂

Note:  We hope to see you out at the Rowdy Runner 5K tomorrow morning!  Go, Rowdy Runners!
