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.
The second quarter was a huge success for our students as they once again surpassed their school-wide behavior goal earning more than 35,000 house points! Students were able to participate in a directed paint to make a special gift for parents, grandparents, or other special loved ones during the holiday season. Congratuations to our red house Tharros for pulling off a last-minute victory earning a pizza and ice cream party! For the third quarter, we have again raised the bar again to 40,000 points. Good luck to all four houses!
Our Mifflin Carnival date has also been set! This is our biggest event of the year spearheaded by our wonderful Mifflin PTO. Please mark March 15th on your calendars and be ready for for a family night of fun and food!
As we approach state testing at the conclusion of this quarter, remember to read nightly with your child. Reading for a few minutes each night and asking questions about what was read can make a dynamic, positive impact with him or her. We are very grateful for all that you do and the community support that we feel. Thank you!
