Miller's Point Sees A Coyote On Campus!

It's not unheard of to see some wildlife around the Judson ISD area, but Miller's Point Elementary School spotted a coyote on the campus recently...that's the Spurs' Coyote.  He and his spirit squad paid a visit to the school in connection with the team's "What'cha Reading Program."  It's an effort to inspire elementary school-age children to grow their interest in reading from a passing necessity to a love.  The Coyote and his helpers came by to read as a reward for students accomplishments in literacy.  

 

The Spurs and Whataburger have teamed up for this effort that will reward more than 25,000 Bexar County students for their hard work. Every student who earns the "What'cha Reading" achievement certificate has the chance to win big prizes through a drawing later on. Thank you to those sponsors, as well as the Coyote and his reading team.  In the meantime, watch out at your campus too...you could see some similar wildlife around your students with a love for reading. 

Thank you also to Miller's Point Librarian Andrea Colwell for putting the campus on the Coyote's reading list.

Miller's Point Visits The Biggest Science Classroom

Studying adaptations in Birds of a Feather

The Miller's Point Jets airmailed themselves to the biggest science classroom...nature. At Twin Lakes Science Camp in Cedar Park students recently got their hands dirty with some exciting science classes. The curriculum included Life at Camp, Web of Life, Birds of a Feather, and Cycles and Water Ecology.  Along with those engrossing concepts to explore, students also studied the impact of math on science when they stepped into kayaks or hit the center of an archery target.  To wrap up the event, students practiced their communication and team-building with a debate and taking on the high and low ropes course. What a day!
