Lead, Learn, Love -- Mifflin!
Welcome to Mifflin Elementary, one of three Madison elementary schools where leaders abound! As we now turn to the fourth 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 third quarter was a huge success for our students as they once again surpassed their school-wide behavior goal earning more than 42,000 house points! Students were able to participate in COSI on Wheels where they were able to explore the different systems of the body, our incredible machine. Congratuations once again to our red house Tharros for winning the third quarter and earning a pizza and ice cream party! For the final quarter, we used student voice where some of the students selected the goal of 50,000 points. While rigorous, we are confident that Mifflin students can make it. Good luck to all four houses!
Thank you to our wonderful community for supporting our annual Carnival led by the Mifflin PTO. We are honored to have served you and hope that your family was able to have fun! In the 4th quarter, we will be hosting a read-a-thon where students can collect pledges in order to fundraise for school field trips as well as host our 2nd annual Muffins with Mom!
State testing is here! 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!
