On Friday, September 27, the fifth grade class participated in a Mystery Skype. A Mystery Skype is a program used with the video messaging system, Skype, where students use questioning and deduction skills to figure out where the other class is "Skyping" from. After asking a series of yes or no questions, we were able to pinpoint the location of the other fifth grade class. They were from Council Bluffs, Iowa.
The fifth grade had a great time as this was their first Mystery Skype. They can't wait to do this again throughout the year.
This year, the Exeter-Milligan Elementary have been very fortunate to go 1:1 with iPads. This means that each child in the elementary has their own iPad to use in the classroom. Pictured are the 3rd graders busy on their Ipads. We have been using many apps on them to study our math facts, take quizzes, and review for tests. We have loved getting to use them everyday and try new things in our classroom!

The Fillmore County Development Corporation (FCDC) in cooperation with the Fillmore County schools, the Young Leaders of Fillmore County (YLFC) and local businesses held a Career Day for the juniors in the county on September 25th. The format for the day involved having the students go to the business locations, rather than the business people coming to the school.
Three tracks were developed so students had a choice and could decide what area interested them the most. The tracks were Agriculture and Industrial Systems, Education, Health and Human Services, and Business, Marketing and Finance.
