Parent/Teacher Conferences September 30 and October 2

Milan Elementary School will be holding Parent/Teacher Conferences on Tuesday and Thursday, September 30 and October 2.

Students have a regular day of school on both days. Then, during the afternoon and evening, from 3:15-7:00 p.m., parents will meet with their child’s teacher to discuss progress being made and any problems or concerns either the parent or the teacher may have.

Classroom teachers have already contacted most of you and have a conference time arranged. If you do not have an appointment set up with your child’s teacher, please contact the school office or send an email or note to your child’s teacher as soon as possible to get one made. Our goal is to meet with 100% of our parents.

If, for some reason, you are unable to keep your appointment, please call the school office at 654-2922 to reschedule and so that someone else may be able to conference in your place. Thanks for your help! See you next week!

Ambassadors Chosen to Welcome New Students

Each year the classroom teacher chooses a boy and a girl to assume the role of student “ambassador” and serve as the official “meeters and greeters” for the class. Their job is to welcome visitors and escort them to and from the classroom or show them around our school. They also welcome new students to the classroom and help them get acquainted with our school and introduce them to their new classmates.

Chosen as student ambassadors for the 2014-2015 school year were: Rylee Mitchell, Gabriel Caseltine, Elly Potts, Cameron Goslin, Kayla Roell, Braesyn Livingston, Ava Burton, Evan Johnson, Kyra Holtgrewe, Landon Stanley, Emma McCrosky, Corbin Deaton, Taytum Barker, Dakota Seale, Olivia Meadows, Dylan Pindell, Grace Bruce, Aiden McFarland, Kaitlyn Carpenter, Alex Eckstein, Kirsten Pindell, Joaquim Allen, Makalee Rivera, Ayden Potts, Madison Cavins, Jonathon Scholle, Rachel Henson, Nolan Ryan, Maddison Smith, Luke Blackburn, Lucy Lillis, Deric Porter, Riley Clark, Max Hartman, Karley Bushhorn, and Caiden Yorn. Congratulations to all!

Margaret Mary Health to Offer Flu Vaccine to Students and Staff

Staff members from Margaret Mary Health will visit our school on Wednesday, October 8 to administer the influenza vaccine, with parent permission, to students at our school. They will offer the FluMist vaccine, a gentle nasal spray, to students who are eligible. They will also offer the influenza injection for those not eligible to receive the nasal spray due to health concerns.

To be eligible for either form of the vaccine, students must return a signed consent form no later than September 26, 2014.

Forms are available at the school office or on our school website.
