Exeter-Milligan School Update

Mrs. Audrey Betka-Mager's Sig. 1 reading group is learning
that reading is fun!  These eager to learn students complete
one to two lessons per day in Reading and Spelling in
Exeter-Milligan's Reading Mastery program.  Each day, they
learn some new vocabulary words and review words learned
earlier in the week.  Then they read a variety of stories at
their level and complete comprehension worksheets following
each reading.  Every 5 lessons, they have a check-out to
determine the speed and accuracy of their reading.  They are
working hard and enjoying learning to read! Those students
are: Alivia Hartmann, Cameran Jansky, Emma Olsen, Briana
Capek and Braden Capek.

Exeter-Milligan School Update

Exeter - Milligan High School Art by Jill Shipley

The art classes have recently completed an art project that
involved recycling milk jugs into art.  This is a project
that the cohort team came up with, so several schools will
be doing this project.  Schools involved include
Exeter-Milligan, Friend, McCool Junction, Dorchester and
It is a fun project because the students get to choose their
own creative idea as to what they will do with their milk
jug and we recycle at the same time.

Exeter Police Department Update

The Exeter Police Department is announcing the results of the Click It or Ticket campaign that was held from November 22nd to 28th.  Thirty-five traffic stops were conducted for violations ranging from child restraints and seat belts to speeding to various vehicle defects.  In addition, officers responded to several other calls for service including a gas drive off and recovered property.

With the completion of the “Click It or Ticket” enforcement, the Exeter Police Department will be starting the “You Drink & Drive. You Lose.” selective enforcement which will run from December 3rd to January 1st.  Like the previous program, this enforcement will also be funded by a grant from the Nebraska Office of Highway Safety and will focus on deterring people from driving while intoxicated.  For more information please visit the national highway traffic safety administration at http://www.nhtsa.gov/people/outreach/safesobr/ydydyl/.
