Lead, Learn, Love -- Mifflin!
Welcome to Mifflin Elementary, one of three Madison elementary schools where leaders abound! As we now turn to the second quarter, we are excited about our partnership with both The Leader in Me and Project Lead the Way. Through The Leader in Me, students are learning about the 7 Habits of Happy Kids and modeling them throughout the day in various leadership opportunities. From house meetings to student action teams, students are embracing principles of leadership on a daily basis. Students are also enjoying our new STEM program Project Lead the Way where we tap into students’ exploratory nature to engage in hands-on activities in the areas of computer science, engineering, and biomedical science to become better critical thinkers and collaborators.
With a goal of 20,000 combined house points from the first quarter, I am proud to announce that Mifflin students once again surpassed all expectations with a combined total of nearly 38,000 points! Together, the students earned a Fall Harvest party sponsored by our Mifflin PTO and Leadership Events committee where they could toss yarn spiders, run a spooky obstacle course, eat carmel apples, and even ring toss a pumpkin patch! Good luck to all four houses in this shorter second quarter as they try to earn 35,000 points for a winter leadership celebration.
If there is anything that you need, please do not hesitate to reach out to me. We are honored to teach your child!
