On Thursday, November 18, K-5 students with perfect attendance were rewarded with an afternoon of roller skating fun during recess. The DPR Roving Leaders brought their skatemobile to Miner for our Miner Bears to enjoy, and as you can see from these pictures, they had a blast! Thanks so much to our Community School Coordinator, Ms. Woodson, and our Miner Administration for organizing this fun event!
On Wednesday, November 17, Ms. Stoyle's Fifth Grade homeroom buddied up with Mr. Gillam's First Grade class to work on a Social-Emotional Learning (SEL) activity together. Together they shared what brings them joy and makes their hearts warm, and used their creativity to demonstrate this with an art project.
