Mr. Brian Murphy’s Social Science Classes at Exeter-Milligan have been covering a wide variety of topics this semester. Currently, the Post World War II History class is just getting started with a unit covering the 1980s. The class spends a great deal of time discussing current events and how earlier events have influenced our world today. Post World War II History looks at events from both world and American perspectives. The American History class recently completed a chapter on the early Cold War. We are now starting a unit on 1950s culture. World History is just completing World War I. During class discussions, an emphasis is placed on perspectives of other nations and how these influence major events that follow.
The Exeter-Milligan gymnasium was host to this year’s jump rope for heart event. Physical Education teacher Mrs. Darcy White holds the event every other year to get the elementary students moving. This year she brought her jock jam music to keep the ropes and the students moving. The elementary students at the Exeter site, (kindergarten, first and second graders) were mentored by Exeter-Milligan high school students who spent their period teaching the kids how to jump rope and use the ropes for different exercises. The students are still accepting donations for the American Heart Association event, ”It takes a Heart to be a Hero.”
Celebrating their own birthday inspired twins Ashley and Meghan Miller to donated blood on their 17th birthday.
The Exeter-Milligan juniors donated blood for the first time at the Exeter Bloodmobile on February 24th
According to Doris Hall, the Exeter Bloodmobile coordinator, “We did have a very good turnout. Everything worked out good that day.”
“We beat our quota by five pints.” With 37 pints of blood the Exeter Red Cross Bloodmobile was deemed a success. The ladies from the United Church of Christ served the lunch and manned the kitchen.
Greeting donors were Erma Adamson, Evelyn Michl and Elva McBride. Escorting donors were Ginny Adams, Carol Shaffer and Kathleen Wilbeck. Those who assisted in the loading and unloading of equipment were Alva Smith, Sterling Dyer, Dan Manwarren, and Adam Erdkamp.
