The Exeter-Milligan FCCLA Chapter has successfully completed two huge community service projects.
FCCLA Chapter members and Mr.
Marr's government students conducted a roadside clean-up project 2 miles east
and 2 miles west of Exeter. Many trash bags were filled with trash and
members became aware of the importance of litter control and recycling from
this project. Those that participated were Amber Pribyl, Tara
Mueller, Ashley Benorden, Kimberlin Ruhl, Hunter Stride, Megan Zwickl, Erica
Yound, Megan Waldron Kiley Briske, Jennifer Pribyl and Samantha Horne, Hannah
Horne, Janey Erdkamp, Vicki Androyna, Taylor Erdkamp, Janey Due, Maitlyn Thomsen,
Toni Bossaller, Mr. Marr, Mr. Sheffield and Mrs. Vossler.
The Exeter-Milligan FCCLA Chapter also conducted their annual "Trick or Treat so That Others May Eat" food drive in the Exeter and Milligan. Through the generosity of both communities, we were able to collect approximately 598.5 lbs of non-perishable food items. These items will be shared with the Fillmore County Blue Valley Food Pantry and Mike Smith-Skate for Change.
The United Methodist Women held their annual cookie walk and nut sale to help area residents prepare for the upcoming holidays.
Something parents never think they will hear is, “Can we go back to school tonight for Family Math? Family Math rocks!”
But parents in the Exeter-Milligan school district hear that at least several times each year since Exeter-Milligan faculty members Anita Mueller and Marla Weber started the program.
This year they held four sessions, two at the Exeter site and two at the Milligan site. Each session was an hour long and “is a program to help parents and students become more aware of the need for mathematics and the options it opens for young people,” explained Weber. “It focuses entirely on parents and children learning mathematics together.”
Each session was comprised of selected activities for children ranging from kindergarten to sixth grade. Strategies used to complete these activities varied by ability and age. Along with the group games and activities, math centers were made available for those wishing to explore other math activities.
It was a hard fought battle with the Timberwolves leading at half-time but in the end Elgin Public/Pope John took the win 40-14. Congratulations to the Timberwolves on an amazing season and silver medals. Word in the E-M halls is that a new hardware trophy case is being ordered.
