Exeter-Milligan Update: Fourth Grade Learns about Soybeans

In November, Alice Holtz visited Mrs. Shelli Mueller’s 4th grade classroom at Exeter-Milligan to teach them about the many different uses of soybeans. The class learned from A to Z about all the products made from soybeans. Alice brought the class chocolate covered soybeans, soybean crayons and a soybean placemat printed with soy ink. They all had a great time learning about the many different uses of soybeans.

Exeter-Milligan Junior Senior High Christmas Program

The Exeter-Milligan Junior High Choir performed two Christmas songs during the Exeter-Milligan Junior-Senior High Christmas Program.

Exeter-Milligan Junior-Senior High presented their Christmas Program on Thursday, December 18th in Exeter.

Under the direction of Mrs. Murphy, the evening began with the Junior High Choir performing “Angels We Have Heard On High,” and “In December.”

Next was a new group, the Jazz Band.  This is a group that Mrs. Murphy began just this year.  She informed the crowd that the students don’t have a regularly scheduled class period yet but practice together whenever possible.  Part of the band performed “Silent Night” which featured Maitlyn Thomsen as a trombone soloist and the another part of the jazz band played “Somewhere in My Memory” which featured a trumpet solo by Amber Pribyl.  All of the jazz band performed an excellent rendition of “Feliz Navidad.”

The Senior High Choir performed “That First Nowell,” which featured a beautiful flute solo by Jordyn Brandt.  They also performed “Born ‘Neath A Star” before their were joined by the Friends of Vocal to sing “Do You Hear What I Hear.”

The evening was capped off by a performed of the Junior-Senior High Band.  They played the fanfare prelude on “Joy to the World,” before performing a rousing rendition of “The Nutcracker Suite.”
Continuing with the holiday theme they played “Hark! The Herald Angels Sing,” and finished inviting the crowd to join them on a “Christmas Sing Along.”

Exeter-Milligan Jazz Band Sax line included (l-r) Kate Jansky, Kayla Geiger, Anna Sluka and Vicki Androyna.
