Annual Outdoor Ed day was held on this week. Each year Marla Weber shares idea packets with Lorie Sliefert's class of juniors and they choose a subject from the ideas offered they would like to teach to the second graders. The packet guides the juniors to create hands-on fun activities that are easy for the juniors to teach and interest everyone. One of the favorites for the juniors in this year's event was a senses station where students listened, tasted, touched and smelled different objects.
Exeter-Milligan students enjoyed a week of "Kicking It Old School" for their 2011 Homecoming celebration.
Each day was a different dress-up theme with Pajama Day starting off on Monday. On Tuesday, each class, along with the faculty was assigned a different decated starting with the 40's. Wednesday each class was assigned a different color to wear and Thursday was Sports Throw Back Day that sported plenty of Milligan Rooster purple and Exeter Eagle outfit's.
Exeter Milligan 2011 Homecoming Court was crowned after the Timberwolves defeated Meridian on Friday night.
