Welcome to Mills Lawn School
Robert Grahamjones Visits MLS!
We were very honored to host Robert Grahamjones this morning who is a Mills Lawn alumnus and a very big deal in the film industry. Mr. Grahamjones is an award winning film editor who works for Pixar and has done work on movies such as Up, The Incredibles, Inside Out, Brave, and many more. 
We Are Gaga Over Our Gaga Pit!
Through PE class discussions, our 6th grade students identified a need for more exercise options on the 4th-6th grade playground. Mr. West empowered our students to undertake a PBL project to organize, design, and build a "Gaga Pit" for the playground. The students requested funding from Mr. Housh and then ordered materials to begin construction. 
2nd Graders Focus on Monarchs
Our second grade classes are gearing up to help support and save the Monarch butterfly population. Students discovered that Monarchs are facing tough times due to environmental conditions that are reducing their numbers. Second graders chose this topic for a year long study... 
4th Graders Teach About Genres
Our 4th graders have been exploring various genres in reading and wanted to find engaging ways to teach others about them. The students used "voice and choice" to decide on various methods to teach about genres which included stop motion animation, puppet shows, and board games. 
Camp Kern is Amazing!
Our 5th and 6th graders experienced a Mills Lawn "rite of passage" with their recent school camp adventure to Camp Kern. We traveled to Morrow, Ohio on April 20th for three days of outdoor education and fun. Our students focused on team work and collaboration as they explored natural history, science, and environmental education in a beautiful setting. 
Support Peace Week!
Our 2nd annual "Peace Week" event is the week of March 16th. We have themes each day that will help our students understand the meaning of peace and the importance of resolving conflict in positive ways. This will be a fun week filled with school spirit as well as important discussions about the meaning of being "Bulldog BRAVE" and acting like a peacemaker. 
Folk Dancing is a Hit!
Our 2nd grade students showed off their folk dancing skills recently by hosting a community shindig. Our students performed several folk dances and encouraged guests to learn the dances and join in, The students have been studying cultures around the world as they explore "Why dancing is important?" to all people. 
Students Focus on Black History Month
Students at Mills Lawn School have been studying about the important contributions of African Americans during the month of February. We were lucky to have some amazing guest speakers and student contributions during our morning news program. Make sure to check out this link for some video highlights.
