Term 1 Vision Award: Elaine Moore

Elaine Moore, Milton High School's Kitchen Manager won the Milton High School Staff Vision Award!

Elaine Moore is more than deserving of this recognition. Many of the students have a connection with her, and she is always there for them when a student comes to talk to her even while managing a kitchen. We could not be more proud to have her at Milton!

1. Applies critical thinking

2. Utilizes technology to engage, explore, evaluate the community, nation, and world

3. Be original and innovative individually and collaboratively

4. Good citizenship, personal responsibility, and character individually and collaboratively

Hot Chocolate Bar

STARTING THIS MONTH AT MHS...

Come have a cup of hot chocolate to warm you up during the cold winter months of January through March with a FREE breakfast to energize you before classes. We use REAL skim chocolate milk.
Low fat chocolate milk is a great source of carbohydrates and protein making it a perfect post workout drink and improves muscle mass and endurance.

Harvest of the Month

Farm To School encourages schools on bringing more locally sourced food. This month is featuring Apples. Click here to try a delicious way to prepare grilled cheese with apples!

Harvest of the Month Continued...

We are receiving our apples from the Department of Defense Program, which allows schools across the country to use their entitlement food dollars on fresh local produce for our students. All of our produce form the Department of Defense is harvested in the United States of America. Apples coming in this month are all locally grown apples.
