Student Activities

The students at Millingport are involved in many school activities. Some of the various activities are described below:

Adult Volunteer Program: Millingport is proud to have a very special group of adults that have given of themselves to come and spend time with individual students or various teachers, helping them in many areas. These people are a vital part of our school. Thank you for all you do!

Battle of the Books: Students in grades 4-5 have a list of books for this competition. They will read as many of the books as they want to read and then take a test that covers all the books. The students that score the highest on this test will be selected for the Millingport Team. The competition is in April, and it is open to all qualifying students at our school.

Character Education Program:At Millingport Elementary School, we observe the ten Character Education themes identified by the Stanly County School System:
September-Responsibility (including school safety), October-Good Judgment, November-Self-Discipline, December-Kindness, January-Perseverance, February-Respect, March-Citizenship, April-Integrity, May-Courage

Honor Roll: The honor roll recognizes students for their academic achievement and good conduct. To be named to the honor roll a student must not have any grades lower than an 85 in any subject and must not have a "U" in conduct or any subject. The names of these students will be listed in the local newspaper after each report card period.

Red Ribbon Week: The Red Ribbon Campaign originated when Federal DEA Agent Enrique Camerana was murdered by drug traffickers in 1985. The Red Ribbon became the symbol to eliminate the demand for drugs and to enforce a commitment to a healthy, drug-free lifestyle with no use of illegal drugs and no illegal use of legal drugs. Millingport School observes Red Ribbon Week each year in October with a variety of contests, games, and activities based on living the drug-free lifestyle.

Science Fair: The upper grade students are involved with science fair projects during January.  They are on display for judging and viewing in the media center. 

SLC Student of the Year: Each homeroom teacher chooses a student who has shown great improvement, has a good attendance record, and worked hard during the school year. These students are honored at the end of the year during the awards ceremony with a placque from the principal.Students in 4th through 5th grades participate in the school science fair. The projects are displayed for all students and parents to view after they have been judged. The winners will compete at the county level on at the Agri-Civic Center.

Spelling Bee: The students in grades 3-5 compete in a school wide spelling bee. Each homeroom determines a classroom winner to participate in the spelling bee. The school winner will compete at the county level.

Student Council: The Millingport School Student Council is made up of representatives from 3rd through 5th grades. There are three elected officers and 12 homeroom representatives and/or alternates. The Student Council is active in community service, making donations to local and national charities and with the day to day activities of the school. Fund raisers and donation campaigns are planned throughout the year. The Millingport Student Council works hard for the students and faculty of our school.
