Lead, Learn, Love -- Mifflin!
Welcome to Mifflin Elementary, one of three Madison elementary schools where leaders abound! At Mifflin Elementary, we seek to empower our students with leadership opportunities so that each one may discover his or her inner genius. Students are also enjoying our 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. Mifflin is proud to be named a Project Lead the Way Distinguished School through our Launch program.
Mifflin Elementary has been awarded the Purple Star distinction from the Ohio Department of Education! As one of 37 Ohio schools to represent the 7th round of recipients, State Superintendent DeMaria informed us that through our efforts to support our military youth, their families, and other military stakeholders in the area, we have been given this honor.
In order to be considered for Purple Star status, a school must minimally have a staff point of contact for military families, offer professional development for this contact, and have a dedicated portion of a webpage to providing resources to our military stakeholders. Furthermore, we must show evidence of military connections within our community; this achievement was earned through a community project with the 179th Airlift Wing, a Veterans Day musical, a building-themed month honoring our servicemen and servicewomen, and more. Congratulations to the students, staff, and families of the Mifflin community! We are Purple Star proud!
Please make sure that you have signed up to be a part of your child's Bloomz classroom to receive important information from your child's teacher as well as from the office. Also, please subscribe to our Instagram and Twitter accounts @MifflinPride as well as our PTO Facebook page "Mifflin Elementary PTO". Our goal is to provide you with multiple opportunities to participate in your child's education, so be on the look out for exciting opportunities as we welcome families into the building.
I look forward to a year of health and learning with each of you!
