Exeter-Miligan Update: Code Books


Code Books – Activated!

By Laura Steuben, K-5 SPED Instructor and Interventionist


The first graders at Exeter-Milligan have been learning a lot of new sounds in reading. EM has a new reading curriculum this year and it has been a beneficial addition to the Language Arts program. Students in first grade used mirrors to visualize their mouth formation when saying the new sound they learned and then they “activated” the sound in their code books. The code books are a reference for them to review each vowel and consonant sound they have learned.

Greg's Market Receives Grant


Alan Emshoff, left, President/CEO of Generations Bank, presents a grant check from JOBS, to Mitch Schlegelmilch, Chairman of Exeter Investors, Inc. who own Greg’s Market.



Community development is a joint effort in Exeter, Neb.


Greg’s Market and Generations Bank worked together to receive a grant from JOBS – Joint Opportunities for Building Success, which is funded by the Federal Home Loan Bank of Topeka.


Rural communities like Exeter are continually looking for ways to increase employment and maintain local businesses. Thanks to this fund that was established in 2011 Greg’s Market was able to purchase a scanner system that is scheduled for installation in early 2023.

Throwback Thursday 1/13/2013




Over the winter holiday break a radiator leak in the Exeter-Milligan Preschool room at the Exeter campus went undetected leaving a wet, moldy mess behind.


The Preschool rents a classroom from the school district and so much of the physical costs will be covered by the district, however, many of the damaged items include books and toys along with other classroom items which were not covered by the school.


Construction was recently completed on the new Verizon cell tower on the east edge of Exeter.  Although the majority of the construction is finished, the tower is not online yet.  No dates have been published as to when it will be active.  The old temporary tower remains in place inside the Exeter-Milligan high school track fence and until the area dries out or freezes, removing the tower and transporting it to Milligan may be difficult.


The GFWC Exeter Woman's Club welcomed four new members this club year.  They are pictured from the left, Cheryl Luzum, Josie Vela, Julie Behrens, and Jessica Votipka.
