Throwback Thursday 3/9/2014




It was an intense competition at the Cornhusker Council Prairie Winds District Pinewood Derby on Saturday, March 9th at the Seward High School Gym as just .40 of a second separated the car speeds from first place to sixteenth place.


Cub Scouts from the nine counties that make up the district gathered to see who took top honors in both speed and show.  In order to be eligible to attend the district event, scouts had to place in the top three in their pack pinewood derby for race or show.


For the show portion of the events scouts were interviewed individually on the techniques and tools they used to make their cars. 

Tyler Due, Pack 218 in Exeter, took the top honors in the wolf competition. For show Ben Bartu out of Pack 218 in Exeter was at the top of the Webelo category and Mikey Bartu was at the top of the Wolf category.


Exeter-Milligan Boys Basketball team head to the state Tournament.  The Timberwolves, ranked #5 (22-3) will face High Plains #4 (25-1) tonight at Lincoln East High School at 7 p.m.  The one loss of the High Plains came from Exeter-Milligan during CRC tournament.

Science Stuff by Matt Nicholas, E-M Science Instructor


This week in 8th grade Earth Science, we are studying the theory of plate tectonics. Plate Tectonics is a combination of the ideas of continental drift and seafloor spreading. Together these ideas help us understand the processes inside the earth that shape what we see on the map. We will be demonstrating how tectonic plates interact with each other by using graham crackers as crustal plates and frosting as magma. We will be investigating how mountains and volcanoes are formed as well as other geologic features.


Each of Mr. Brian Murphy's classes at Exeter-Milligan watches and discusses the news daily.  The eight grade American History class is learning about events leading up to the Civil War.  In high school American History class, we are finishing the unit covering World War II.  Currently, students in World Geography are learning about Central America.  In Post World War II History, students are learning about the 1980s and the fall of the Soviet Union.
