Spanish News 

By Lisa Ricenbaw, Exeter-Milligan Spanish Instructor


Spanish 2 students Jackson Beethe, Clint Oldehoeft, Cammie Harrison and Natalie Staskal (in picture) worked together to re-enact the legend "Los Novios" which is the story of a princess and a warrior who were transformed into volcanoes. The students read the legend, wrote their own script and then performed their play.  These activities helped students to gain knowledge and understanding of the Mexican culture and learn about the geography of Mexico City.

Throwback Thursday: March 25, 2011




The Exeter G.F.W.C. hosted a Prom Fashion Show at the Exeter Care Center.

While the high school models brought some of their own dresses to the show, they first modeled the fashions of their mothers and grandmothers.
Audience members also shared special memories of the dresses as the models took their turns on the care center runway. Models were Claire White, Brooke Manning, Jordyn Brandt, Meredith Emshoff, Caroline Harre, Cassie Harre, and Madison Horne.

After the dresses were shown and the photos were taken, the Woman’s Club members shared dessert with the care center residents and the models.


A benefit for Lori Ruhl-Walford of Exeter who had bile duct cancer  was held in the Exeter-Milligan gym due to the weather. In addition to vendors, outdoor inflatables, and a free will donation lunch there was  a Silent Auction featuring items like brand new kids bicycles with helmets, Husker Memorabilia, and Gift Baskets.


Recently some Exeter-Milligan students participated in the Hoops-For-Heart fundraiser.  They raised a total of $ 1,678. Students participating were Patrick Murphy, Derek Axline, Kelsey Bigelow, Tara Mueller, Bailey Steuben, Johnny Babula, Eric Olsen, Blake Steuben, Trever Zelenka, Josie Kresak, Kate Jansky, Max Zeleny, Caitlin Murphy, Kayla Geiger, Brooke Poppert, Anna Sluka, Caleb Horne and Mitchell Manning.

Fifth Grade Update

By Madalynn Fousek, Exeter-Milligan Fifth Grade Instructor


The end of the 3rd quarter has provided a lot of new, fun challenges and has been keeping the 5th graders busy! We have been working hard and are continuing to learn new material and skills that have kept us on our toes. In math we have been working with equivalent fractions, reducing fractions, and the difference between prime and composite numbers. This has led us to creating arrays! Students found out that if numbers are prime there is only one possible array, but if numbers are composite there could be two or more different arrays. We were able to do a fun activity where I stated a number and they created as many arrays as possible and declared if it was prime or composite. They enjoyed being able to use manipulatives and get out of their desks for a while!
