Eagle Pride: New Madrid Elementary Style!!!

Every morning the students and staff at New Madrid Elementary gather in the gym before going to class at 7:55 am. The purpose of gathering all of the students in the gym prior to the start of our school day is to celebrate the positives from either the day before or total for the week as well as motivate the students to do their best in the classroom. Mrs. Beth Murphy leads everyone in celebrating student and staff birthdays daily by singing “Happy Birthday” many different ways. Mrs. Beth is the author of the New Madrid Elementary academic and school spirit chants. After the birthday celebrations, Mrs. Beth leads the students in reciting the chants:

We are helpers,

We are kind,

We are here to learn,

And blow your mind!

Tick, Tick, Tick, Tick, Tick, Tick,

BOOM! Blow your mind!

BOOM! Blow your mind!



Clear eyes,

Full heart,

Can’t lose,

EAGLES forever!




On Fridays, the students are allowed ten minutes to dance with Mrs. Beth before beginning the celebration time. Fridays have become a favorite for the students because they have the opportunity to let loose and have a little fun before the school day begins. We have noticed that students arrive at school earlier and are absent less on Fridays than any other day of the week.

To conclude the morning time in the gym, students learn civility and patriotism by reciting the Pledge of Allegiance and the Peace Builder Pledge.
