Lead, Learn, Love -- Mifflin!
Welcome to Mifflin Elementary, one of three Madison elementary schools where leaders abound! 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.
Students have been sorted into one of four houses: Sabedoria (blue), Fidélité (yellow), Tharros (red), and Tamaa (green). Students have a schoolwide WIG (wildly important goal) of collectively earning 22,000 points for their positive behavior choices for the thrid quarter. If students are successful, then they will earn a leadership celebration! Also, the house that earns the most points for the quarter will earn a pizza party, and Mr. Stump will dye his hair the house color for the party! It looks like Mr. Stump will be dying his hair yellow for our quarter two winners, House Fidélité!
If you would like to attend one of our PTO meetings, please note that they are on the first Tuesday of every month at 5:30 pm. Come see what some of our amazing parents have come up with for the 2019-2020 school year.
If you need any assistance, please do not hesitate to reach out to the office or to your child's teacher. I can't wait to see what the third quarter has in store for Mifflin!
