American Education Week - November 16 - 20, 2015

Parents are invited in for lunch all week. They need to sign in by the office and purchase their lunch from Mrs. Walker - no background checks for this event. Great time for teachers to walk through the cafe and just chat with parents informally.


PTO Sponsored SMACK Down - Students vs. Staff Dodge Ball Monday, Nov. 16 at 3:30 pm. $1 or 1 nonperishable food item is the entry into the event. All monetary proceeds & canned goods will benefit the Milford Food Pantry.


Goodies & Snacks - We have a few special items for all staff through-out the week. We are inviting the bus drivers in on Friday for breakfast. This is a good time for students to write an real note to a staff member that they would like to thank. Our culminating activity is lunch sponsored by the PTO on Friday (soup/bread/crackers/desserts).
