The Miller Minute
We #cando & #willdo our personal best to inspire excellence!
Week 6 ~ September 22
Please be cognizant of children exiting out the driver side door. While we discourage this practice, sometimes, it is unavoidable. Occasionally, parents whose cars have already been unloaded get out of the car line and pass other parked cars who are unloading children. Please avoid doing this as there may be children who are getting out on the driver's side. Safety is always a priority!
This Week at LME
Here's the scoop: Doors will open at 6:00. You may park in the staff parking lot, the back drive, or the overflow lot (attached to the staff parking lot). PTO sponsors this event, and there will be ice cream floats and concession stand sales. We will have a photo booth (for a charge) and a DJ for dancing fun!
Parents and Families—this year’s main fundraiser is the return of the Miller Glow Run in partnership with Boosterthon! It’s a two-week program that kicks off with a Pep Rally on Monday, September 30. Families will then gather pledges for every lap your student runs (30-35 laps) at the Miller Glow Run, which will happen on Thursday, October 10 . This year our goal is to raise $25,000, and we need your help! We’ve asked the experts at Booster to power our fundraiser to make it easier, more profitable, and more fun.
Students will also experience an amazing character theme, MINDSPARK: WILD WEST! Booster’s most exciting theme yet combines S.T.E.A.M. skills (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) with character-building. While they're teaming up with the MindSpark Kids to save Dr. Shock, our students will learn five character traits that will help strengthen themselves and our world.
Donations will go toward painting for the gym, adding graphic art work to our hallways, resources for the classroom, our end of year student Luau, and student shirts. Last year, we were able to paint the cafeteria, purchase shirts for our learners, provide additional resources for teachers and students, and in partnership with our awesome PTO, add a new playground set with shade structure.
Please help our school by getting pledges from family and friends and entering them on FUNRUN.COM. Also, all families are invited to come out and cheer on our students at the Miller Glow Run during your child's specials class. Thanks so much for your support!
