Pumping Up!

As we wrapped another glorious spring week, our first graders presented an DSCF3979energetic and creative program called SQUIRM!  Dressed as critters that make us squirm in life (bats, worms, snakes, and spiders), they taught us how squirmy creatures are good for our environment.  Each song explained how the DSCF3971particular critter’s existence plays an important role in the overall cycle of life on planet Earth.  Special thanks to our clever Fine Arts Team and the First Grade Teachers who spent numerous hours teaching and sharing important facts and trivia to bring the show to fruition…outstanding work!

Our learners also enJOYed an enthusiastic, motivational presentation presented by Mr. Keith Davis and Mr. Clarence Lee.  Both are former NFL players devoting their lives to encouraging and inspiring others to achieve their personal best everyday.  IMG_0031Mr. Davis previously spent time with our LME staff back in August when we partnered with T.E. Baxter staff while sharing our staff book study Training Camp with each other.  Mr. Davis has a magical way when he speaks by engaging each child in a meaningful way while literally “pumping up” the energy of the entire space.  Thanks, Mr. Davis and Mr. Lee, for sharing your time and talents with our learning community again this year!  Here’s hoping you get pumped up too!

Game Day (Opening) for LME Staff!

It was an exciting opening day all around for our staff at LME today!  Our campus Design Team created memorable experiences all morning as we worked our way through daily campus expectations, our book study (Training Camp), planning and sharing ideas, fun drawings and prizes, the Miller Essential 5, and so much more.  Everything from rolling chair dodgeball (to illustrate honesty) to engagement measuring tools were covered in an extensive, meaningful, and fun way.  We hosted our friends from Baxter Elementary in the afternoon for a combined presentation from Mr. Keith Davis and Mr. Randall Harris.  These professional athletes and motivational speakers inspired us with a new game plan, the 2nd Half, Optica (vision), and their all-important, winning “can-d0” attitudes.  As Mr. Davis powerfully notes, “With great effort, education, and excellence, each learner and leader CAN win…you have the power to change lives…you have the gift to give to others through your work everyday!”  Special thanks to Mr. Davis and Mr. Harris for sharing their enthusiasm and dedication today!  Needless to say, we are truly pumped (just see Mrs. Bly and Mrs. Story lifted to new heights) to be our personal BEST today and everyday.  EnJOY these pics and join us on the journey to be the BEST this year because…Every Day Is Game Day at LME!
