Wow, what a fun day our Mighty Miner Bears had on Tuesday, October 31 - Halloween! The day kicked off with "Book-O-Ween" for the ECE classes, where students dressed as their favorite literary characters and then were able to paint their own pumpkins! The entire school then participated in a costume parade around the block, showing off their awesome costumes and Miner Bear pride to our neighbors. The day's festivities ended with our annual tradition: Oktoberfest! All Miner students were able to enjoy a petting zoo, bounce house, face painting, hay jump, pumpkin roll, and other fun games and activities.
The day was made possible by the amazing teamwork between the school administration and staff, Parent Teacher Organization, and PreK Parent Committee. Special shout outs and appreciation go to Miner's Director of Strategy & Logistics Dr. King, PTO Vice President Julie Muir, Family Services Coordinator Dante Daniel, and PreK Parent Committee Chair Matt Renaud for coordinating the day's various efforts. But of course none of this would have been possible without the help of a small army of parents, teachers, and staff who volunteered to set up, oversee the various activities all day long, and then clean up afterwards. We are so grateful for this incredible family we have at Miner, and we appreciate all the hard work everyone put in to make the whole day so much fun for all of our Mighty Miner Bear scholars!
