Hug the Earth Festival
All Miami East Elementary School Students will be participating in the Hug the Earth Festival on May 12th. The first part of the festival is during the school day and students will need to pack a lunch. It will be held at Stillwater Prairie.
On the evening of May 12th, students with their families will be invited back to campus to participate in a concert featuring songs they have been working on throughout the year. The concert starts at 6 p.m. and will be held in the High School Gymnasium. We hope to see all of our Miami East families in attendance.
Reflex Math Recognition
When entering our building, if you look outside our office, you have probably noticed pictures of students on the wall. These are students who are 100% fluent in Reflex Math. Reflex Math is an online computer program that we utilize to help students with math fact fluency. Students play games where they need to know addition, subtraction, multiplication and division facts to be successful. Once they show they are fluent their picture goes on the wall.
The 2016-2017 Districtwide Calendar is now posted on the front page of the District's website.
