Exeter-Milligan Update: 8th Grade Computer Science Class


Exeter-Milligan 8th Grade Computer Science Class

By Lisa Soukup, E-M Media Specialist

The 8th grade has been busy programming micro:bits. They programmed the micro:bit to sense the amount of light in a room and their favorite was programming the micro:bit to play music. They created a guitar and added the micro:bit to it and were able to create music on their guitar. Next, we are moving on to Splat Pads. Follow us on Facebook @ Exeter-Milligan Public Schools.

Exeter-Milligan Update: Fifth Grade News


Fifth Grade News

By Madalynn Fousek, Exeter-Milligan Fifth Grade Instructor


The fifth graders have been busy this 1st quarter. We have started dividing whole numbers and decimals in math. Some of us have a love-hate relationship with long division, but they are continuing to work hard and improve this skill. They are also working hard to have their multiplication facts mastered! Along with that, we have done many science experiments and STEM projects. Our latest STEM project was a wind sock. Students were to design their own wind sock out of cardstock paper, string and tape. They were able to be creative and there were many different types of wind socks that were created. It was great to see their creativity come out during this project!

Throwback Thursday

 October 20, 2010

The #2 seeded Fillmore Central/Exeter-Milligan lost their 10 to Friend 3 - 0 (their only two losses during the regular season were to Friend) and went on to play Ashland Greenwood who defeated #1 seed Wayne yesterday.

Rhonda Stokebrand has campaigned for the last years for the new Exeter Aquatic Center to have some extra equipment.

The original plan for the aquatic center included both a large slide and a toddler slide, but due to increased construction costs those items were put on hold.

Last year the large slide was added and Stokebrand has continued her campaign for both an aquatic wheelchair and a toddler slide.  She has attended village board meetings, researched toddler slides and wheelchairs presenting options to the village board. Stokebrand served on the pool committee and was the pool manager and swimming lesson instructor for a number of years.

Recently Stokebrand applied for several grants for the two items.  The Mary Tous Foundation donated $1500 to the toddler slide and wheelchair fund and the Fillmore County Foundation donated $400 to the pool committee. Ninety-five dollars in donations for the aquatic wheelchair came from the Fillmore County Hospital Denim Days fund.  Shari Michl, of Exeter is a nurse at the hospital, and applied for the use of some of those funds toward the wheelchair.

Together both projects will require around $8000.00.  Stokebrand hopes to continue to apply for grants along with private donations so that the items can be ordered in time to be placed at the aquatic center for the 2011 pool season.

Fillmore Central/Exeter-Milligan will meet Friend in the quarterfinals at 10 a.m.

Yesterday, the combined team defeated Twin Rivers 7 -6 with a rally in the seventh inning.  Go T-Wolves
