Throwback Thursday, December 25, 2011



The entrance signs are evidence that progress continues at the new Fillmore County Hospital in Geneva.  Outside the helicopter pad is ready, landscaping is complete and the new exterior signs are being completed.  The glass for the doorways is being installed and finish work continues inside.  The hospital expects to open its doors on March first, three months ahead of schedule.

The Exeter-Milligan special education department received five ipods this year.  One of the apps that we use with the 8th grade and 10th grade special education students is the Flashcard app.  This is used to study their English vocabulary words.  The ipod makes it more interesting than using the traditional paper flashcards.  We also downloaded an app called Drivers Education that will assist students who will be getting their license or studying for Drivers Education class.  Other apps we have students use to help review skills include Algebra, Coin Math, Bills and Coins, Freddy Fraction, Count Coins, Apples in Hour Hands, Little Matchups Count Money, Pizza Fractions, States N Capitals, Capitals, Math Stripes, and Grammar Up.

Exeter-Milligan Kindergarten through sixth graders entertained their family members and friends with a Christmas concert on Tuesday, December 14th in Exeter.

Under the direction of Mr. Mark Perez the Kindergarten class opened the evening with “Christmas is Here,” and then they took turns adding lights and ornaments to a little Christmas tree as they sang “Rock Around the Christmas Tree.”

The first and second graders performed together starting with “Up on the Housetop,” before embracing the spiritual “Mary Had a Baby.” They finished their portion of the program with “Ring Ring Ring the Bells,” accompanying themselves with bells and drums.

The third and fourth graders also combined to sing “Pack the Sleigh,” and “Makin’ Christmas Cookies” before they performed “Jingle Bells” on Boomwhackers.

The fifth and sixth graders just performed the vocal “Snowflakes” before using the boomwhackers to perform “Joy to the World.”  They asked the audience to sing along as they performed “Silent Night” on the Ukuleles.

The fifth grade band had their first band performance which featured “Jingle, Jolly Christmas.” They were then joined by the sixth grade members of the band to play “First Rockin’ Christmas,” and “Christmas Fun.”  There were seventeen members in the fifth and sixth grade band.

All of the audience was invited to share in a Christmas tea sponsored by the Exeter-Milligan Booster Club Fine Arts Committee after the performances.
