Weekly Update - October 22
Message from Mrs. Wilson
Our Fall Field Day was a huge success! Thank you to the PTO for putting this together. Thank you also to the parents and staff members for being flexible and making this an awesome day!
A special thank you goes to Starr Farms/Top Choice Produce for donating the 150+ pumpkins! Thank you to RCHS FFA for the perfect "Rainy Rodeo" opportunity you provided for the students! What a great group of role models for our kids!
Thanks to Tammy Jackman for the Soil and Water activity! There are just so many other volunteers and people that donated their time and talents to our Field Day. Even though the rain tried to spoil our fun...it didn't!
Have a great Fall Break!
Mrs. Lisa Wilson, Principal
Milroy Elementary School

Instead of a Fall Festival this year, we will plan on having a “Spring Fling” for our Milroy Family. More information will be available at a later date.
We have an excellent group of PTO Officers! If you would like information on how to volunteer, you can contact one of them. There are always ways to help our school even if you're not available during the day.

Scholastic Classroom Campaign
Mrs. Debbie Banks, Media Specialist Assistant at Milroy Elementary, is starting a program to provide books for our students throughout the year. Each child will receive a book each month through this program. If you would like to donate to this awesome project, please click on the link above. We appreciate your donations! Our goal is to raise at least $1,500.
Update to Opening of School Plan
The RCS Board of Trustees has voted to extend the face covering/mask requirement through October 22nd. The decision was based on a recommendation from the Rush County Health Department and Rush County’s current status of high community spread. It is believed that progress is being made and this will get us through the current surge. Hopefully after Fall Break we can make an adjustment. The primary goal remains to keep students and staff healthy, in school on a daily basis, and minimize absenteeism due to contact tracing.
I appreciate the cooperation from our students, families, and staff.
Dr. Matt Vance
Superintendent, Rush County Schools
