Exeter-Milligan Update: Reading Group

Pictured are a couple of Mr. Jackson Krejci's Reading Mastery students Tyler Due and Josh Meyer working hard on their independent reading.  The group's focus this semester has been two finger tracking while following along as they take turns reading.  After the group reads together they then read independently. The last thing they do to check for understanding is complete their independent work which includes answering questions from their story.

Exeter-Milligan Update: Advanced Math

Mary Kay Pribyl's Advanced Math Class at Exeter-Milligan is studying the nature of graphs.  They are starting out with learning the parent graphs and transformations of the parent graphs.  The class members are showing the graphs of y = x3 and y = x.  As they continue this unit they will study continuity and end behavior of the graphs and locate critical points and extrema of graphs.  This unit will help prepare them for calculus.  Pictured (L-R) are Jordyn Brandt, Brooke Manning, Kylie Briske, Madison Horne, Amber Pribyl, and Dillan Jindra.

Exeter-Milligan Senior Logan Zeleny signed with Central Community College on Wednesday, March 26th.  Zeleny will play catcher this fall as the Columbus catcher.

On hand to see her sign were her parents Jim and Liz Zeleny, Assistant Fillmore Central/Exeter-Milligan softball coach Lorie Sliefert and Central Community College Athletic Director and Softball Coach Jack Gutierrez.

Gutierrez quipped that "Signing Logan was a win win.  We recruit only Nebraska kids and Logan comes out of a good program."

Zeleny is looking forward to heading to Columbus, "I know people there and I couldn't give softall up yet.  They have a really nice program."

Zeleny plans to major in Elementary Education at Columbus and then transfer to a state college.
"CCC is close enough to home but not too close.  I'm really excited about the experience," said Zeleny.

This season as the catcher for the Fillmore Central/Exeter-Milligan Panther Softball Team Zeleny was selected for the Southern Nebraska Conference first team. Zeleny was also selected on the York News-Times All-Area Softball Team and was given an honorable mention on the Class C Super State Team.

Exeter-Milligan Update: Applied Science Class

Exeter-Milligan Science Update by Lorie Sliefert

The Applied Science class has been studying Siege Machines and each student has built model catapults.   By varying the projectile size and tension used to power the catapult, they investigated how far the projectile traveled.   They also made trebuchets, shown in the picture.   They calculated how much mass they need in order for the projectile to hit a wall that was placed a set distance away. Pictured are Devin Sheffield (sitting) and Broc Mueller testing their trebuchets.
