Exeter-Milligan boys can't find a win at Holiday Tournament

 Exeter-Milligan boys just needed one more basket to win their first tournament game in Roseland on Wednesday but the last shot (and a lot of other shots) just didn't fall for them.  They lost 40-42 against Silver Lake on Wednesday and lost to Shelton on Thursday.

 On Wednesday, the girls team played Silver Lake and easily defeated them 40-17.  Thursday's contest, against Shelton, was a different story.  The lead went back and forth between the two teams with Shelton leading by one point in the last minutes.  After several timeouts the Exeter-Milligan girls went out on the court, nailed a three and then stole the ball from Shelton and went straight to the hoop to win the game 44-41.

Exeter-Milligan Update: Industrial Arts Classes


Students in Mr. Dean Filipi’s Industrial Arts classes at Exeter-Milligan have been busy with their projects this semester.  It was a group effort especially when trying to glue the pieces together for Jaiden’s project. Some of these projects may also end up being Christmas presents!

Exeter-Milligan Update: Life Skills


Life skills are very important in becoming a successful member of our society.  I have been teaching these types of skills to one of my special education students to make her more knowledgeable about events that will occur after high school. The student has recently had to look through the employment ads, fill out an application, and ask people to be a reference for her. Proper interview techniques/questions were reviewed, and an interview was completed.  After being hired, the student had to complete a W-4 form and learn about all the deductions on her paycheck. Next, looking through the ads for an apartment, one was selected, a lease was signed, and deposits and rent were paid. Weekly menus are planned out, grocery lists are made, and "virtual" groceries are purchased and put away in either the refrigerator, freezer, or cupboard and marked off as they are used. There will also be unplanned expenses and/or raises that will affect the budget that had been created. The picture shows the student completing a W-4 form.
