Greg's Market Collects Our Family Labels

Exeter-Milligan supporters have a new opportunity to help their school.  The Our Family brand has introduced Labels for Learning and Greg’s Market in Exeter has a box to accept them inside their store.  The program is valid through July 2014.  Labels can also be taken to either school office or also will be accepted in classrooms at both campuses.  Greg Yound is pictured next to the box at the downtown store.

Exeter-Milligan Preschool Room Floods

Over the winter holiday break a radiator leak in the Exeter-Milligan Preschool room at the Exeter campus went undetected leaving a wet, moldy mess behind.

The Preschool rents a classroom from the school district and so much of the physical costs will be covered by the district, however, many of the damaged items include books and toys along with other classroom items which were not covered by the school.

Preschool teacher Jodi Pribyl was discouraged by the damage, “Hopefully this week  the Preschool board and I will be able to get in the classroom to see the extent of the damage and begin to clean up.  I have been in the classroom briefly and am confident that we will begin classes as scheduled on January 29th.  After the board and I are able to start cleaning up we will know what we will need.”

The Exeter-Milligan Preschool rents space from the Exeter-Milligan school and is not part of the school district.  The program covers it’s costs on the tuition the students pay.  They have a very limited budget and so Preschool Board President Kendra Oldehoeft hopes “ the community might help with donations to replace some things that were damaged.”

Pribyl and Oldehoeft hope to have a list soon of items that will need to be replaced to help the program this semester, financial donations are also welcome.  The Exeter-Milligan Preschool meets two days a week, offering a morning program for younger children, ages three and up, and an afternoon program for children who will start school soon.

Exeter Cell Tower Project Nearing Completion

Construction was recently completed on the new Verizon cell tower on the east edge of Exeter.  Although the majority of the construction is finished, the tower is not online yet.  No dates have been published as to when it will be active.  The old temporary tower remains in place inside the Exeter-Milligan high school track fence and until the area dries out or freezes, removing the tower and transporting it to Milligan may be difficult.
