NGC Weekly Update
Sept. 23, 2022
Soaring through the week!
Student Progress Reports
We only have a few weeks left in the quarter. Grades in Powerschool are "live". You can also check for any missing assignments in Powerschool. Keep in mind, if an assignment is missing, it factors into the grade as a ZERO. If you have 1-3 missing assignments, this can lower their grade significantly! Students should always contact their teacher if they need to submit or turn in late or missing assignments so the teacher can go back in to grade these items. Students have the ability to sign up to see teachers during Flex Time if they need help with assignments.
Homecoming spirit week is next week (September 26th - 30th). Our MHS Student Council has planned spirit days for the week. We would like to remind students that the dress code should be followed even during spirit week.

Superintendent Spieser covers:
- The State of Ohio released School Report Cards last week. Milford Schools received an estimated 4.5 stars. You can read more here: https://bit.ly/21-22MilfordReportCard
- The Milford Schools board of education approved new Fieldhouse plans which will include upgraded athletic facilities, new restrooms, and three additional gyms. These improvements are necessary as current buildings will need to be demolished to make way for the new Middle School. The improvements will also allow Milford to host large athletic and band competitions, as well as provide much needed space for student athletes to practice and hold games.
- Homecoming is next week! We can't wait for Spirit Week to launch and to celebrate with next Friday's parade and game and Saturday's dance.
- Join us this weekend as our drama students present "The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee" - tickets can be purchased here: https://www.milfordschools.org/milford-high-school-news/entry/mhs-drama-presents-69/
Hearing and Vision Screening
Vision and Hearing screenings will be administered to all ninth grade students as required by state law. If you do not want your child screened please sign a required waiver. (See link below)
Why is it important to have your child’s vision screened? Young children with vision problems do not know the way that they see the world is not the way they should be seeing it! Without early detection and treatment, children’s vision problems can lead to permanent vision loss and learning difficulties.
Vision screening will consist of the following: Distance visual acuity - ability to see objects far away
Why is it important to have your child’s hearing screened? Hearing is important for speech, language development, reading and learning. A hearing screening can detect if your child needs further hearing testing. Even if your child has passed a hearing screening previously, their hearing can change. Hearing problems can be related to medical problems. Hearing loss is invisible and child may appear to be not paying attention.
Hearing screening will consist of the following test: Audiometry - Screening of hearing acuity.
A hearing screening only provides a snapshot of how your child performs on the day the test was administered and is not a substitute for a complete hearing evaluation by an audiologist.
You are welcome to contact the nurse to learn the screening findings. If your child does not pass the vision or hearing screening, the school nurse will send a letter to share the results and may make a recommendation for further evaluation by an eye care specialist or hearing specialist. If you have any questions about the school vision/hearing screening program please call the school nurse.
If your child fails either part of the screening, a rescreen and/or a written referral will be made.
9th grade screening will take place the week of October 24th 2022.
