The Miller Times
Oct. 9 - 13
Monday - PJ Day - I would allow a pillow or stuffed animal as well. If they can have it and not be distracted they can use it during independent work.
Tuesday – Jersey Day - I would include any club shirt (dance, race t-shirts, whatever)
Wednesday – Wacky Day - Interpret this however you want, just make sure it is not so distracting that we can't accomplish anything in class :)
Thursday – Inside-out Day - Or could be backward instead of inside out.
Friday – Blue and Gold Day
Bulldog Jog was a hit
