Twenty-six Exeter-Milligan students' participated in the 14th/64th Annual American Mathematics Competitions (AMC 10/12). This is a national test, and Exeter-Milligan has participated for many years. The top three students scores are used for the school team score. In the AMC 12 division the top three finishers were Jennifer Pribyl, Blake Papik, and Kylie Briske. This is Jennifer's fourth year in a row that she has a first place finish. In the AMC 10 division the top three finishers were Janey Due, Madison Horne, and Amber Pribyl. I would like to thank all of the students who took this test.

Judy Kassik's Exeter-Milligan Kindergarten students made their goal of each student counting to 100.
After each student has counted to 100, their name was put on a scoop of ice cream and
placed upon a cone. This past week the students finished counting to 100. Now that all
the scoops are on the wall, they get to celebrate their goal with an ice cream party.
Class members are Jayden Capek, Mikey Bartu, Aidan Vavra and Carter Milton, Emma Rose, Kierra Papik, Ayla Kahler, Liberty Johnson, Joleen Vossler, Emma Meyer and Madison Rankin.
