Miller's Annual Field Day
Miller's Field Day is presented in a "partner challenge" format which fosters cooperation, skill development, decision making, sportsmanship and responsibility. Students are paired with a partner for the day and will participate in more than twenty partner events and several group activities. Field Day at Miller is always a highlight for students and staff. Our Physical Education department creates this fun-filled day by planning and providing a variety of interactive games. Volunteers are always needed and appreciated If you would like to volunteer for Field Day please contact Miller's Volunteer Coordinator.
Our jogging club, an after school program for 3rd-5th graders, is organized around the activity of running, but the focus of the club is to promote the well-being of the child. The club will promote fitness and encourage sportsmanship and a positive mental attitude. We love the way this program helps children develop a healthy and active lifestyle.
