Exeter-Milligan Updatees: Fifth Grade News


5th Grade News

By Madalynn Fousek, Exeter-Milligan 5th grade Instructor


The 5th graders finished up our unit on ecosystems. They each created a biome that included species and vegetation specific to their environment. Each student chose an animal and plant to research more about and included that in their final research report. They all created some awesome biomes and reports and were able to share their findings with the class!

Exeter-Milligan Update: Third Grade


Laura Steuben’s Exeter-Milligan third graders were celebrating their winter MAP accomplishments. Prior to winter and spring MAP testing, each student sets a goal that they want to achieve to prove that they are making progress. Not only did all of the third graders show growth but several reached or exceeded their goals.

Throwback Thursday: 1/29/2012




The Exeter-Milligan fifth graders, with the tutelage of their teacher Mr. Brent Zoubek, have been hard at work learning about and exploring different minerals.  They have learned about what a mineral is, how they form, and how to identify them by using the different properties.  We have discussed the minerals that we use in our everyday lives and the importance of recycling so we have these things for years to come.   

  Members of the Exeter-Milligan FCCLA (Family, Career and Community Leaders of America) Chapter competed at the District #4 STAR (Students Taking Action for Recognition) Conference.  This competitive even allows members to be recognized for proficiency and achievement in chapter and individual projects, leadership skills and career preparation.  The projects that competed at District #4 STAR were:  Applied Technology- Sr. Division-"Through the Eyes of a Soldier" Becca Vossler and Toni Bossaller- Gold medal and advancing to State, Focus on Children- Sr. Division-"Nowhere to Hide"- Erica Yound and Megan Waldron- Gold medal and advancing to State, Focus on Children- Jr. Division- "Prostitots"-Janey Due, Madison Horne, Maitlyn Thomsen- Silver medal and advancing to State, Health & Wellness- Sr. Division-"Think Pink"-Meredith Emshoff and Brooke Manning- Silver medal and advancing to State, Illustrated Talk- Jr. Division-"Friendship- The Best Gift of All"- Haylee Sheffield and Ashley Benorden- Silver medal and Illustrated Talk- Sr. Division-"Outside Looking In"- Deidre Stevens and Kylie Briske- Silver medal.


What makes a meal balanced? Mrs. Marla Weber's Second graders at Exeter-Milligan learned the answer to this and other nutritional information in their recent health unit. These students studied the food pyramid and other components to a healthy diet.  They created menus that not only used knowledge of the food pyramid, but made certain their menus had listed food with varying color, texture, temperature and taste. These menus were submitted to the cooking staff for evaluation. After being accepted for all necessary criteria, the second grade menus will be prepared by the school cooking staff for use in the school lunch program.


Fillmore County Hospital Dedication and Open House was scheduled for Feb 26, 2012

Jill Shipley’s Art I classes at Exeter – Milligan have just completed their “Where’s Waldo” project where they drew images of things they liked.  The students worked on overlapping images, creating unity using different media, and balancing their picture with images and color.
