EDUCATION MATTERS #56

By Dr. Ben Yocom – Milan C-2 School District Superintendent

“STRIVING FOR EXCELLENCE IN EVERYTHING”

                Greetings from the MC2 Family!  The month of “May” in the school business is always hectic and busy; this year’s “May” is no different.  The school has a plethora of activities.  The 2nd annual 6th Grade Promotion-Celebration ceremony is scheduled for Thursday, May 9th at 5:30 p.m. at Cal Hubbard Field – Mrs. Pauley and her staff, plus the students – have done a tremendous job preparing for this awesome event! 

                The Milan High School Class of 2019 Commencement is scheduled for Saturday, May 11th at 7 p.m. in the Milan C-2 Gymnasium.  Mr. Harry Doak is the guest speaker; the Valedictorian, Salutatorian and Class President will provide speeches.  Everyone is certainly encouraged to attend this monumental event!  Prior to this activity, the Milan High School Awards Ceremony will take place on Wednesday, May 8th at 9:00 a.m. in the Milan C-2 Gymnasium.  Students will be honored for their great work throughout the school year and seniors will receive some Scholarship information.  Parents and guardians are encouraged to attend this as well.

                The 2019 Summer School Session will begin on Tuesday, May 28th, 2019 – the session will run for twenty (20) school days and end on Monday, June 24th, 2019.  Students entering Kindergarten through 9th grade will participate in various enrichment activities; plus, multiple trips to various areas (Chilli Bay, Milan City Pool, Conservation areas, etc.).  For the 4th straight year, students from the Green City R-I School District have been invited to participate in the session.  Credit recovery options will be available for High School students and students that require “Mandatory” summer school will also have that opportunity.  If anyone has questions about the 2019 Summer school session, please contact Mrs. Sawyer – Summer School Director at 660-265-1419.

                Over the past few weeks, Allstate engineers were on campus completing Geo-Technical tests over the New Construction area.  The firm drilled ten (10) holes and the primary purpose is to evaluate the condition of the soil.  This will then allow the architects and engineers to properly plan for appropriate footings and foundation for the new construction.  The preliminary construction documents/plans are under review and feedback/evaluation will take place in the next few weeks regarding the kitchen equipment, electrical demands, fiber/cabling infrastructure, etc.  The official “Request for Proposals” will be disbursed in late July or early August.  The proposals/bids will be reviewed by the Board of Education in mid-August and the construction process will begin shortly thereafter.  The new construction portion can take place throughout the school year and the major renovations will take place during the summer of 2020.  The goal is still to have the new structures completed by the start of the 2020-2021 School Year.  While everyone is extremely excited and somewhat anxious about this project starting; please remember that patience will be greatly needed.  It is absolutely vital that all the planning details are completed prior to beginning the process and personally, I would much rather everything be completed properly prior to construction beginning; rather than having to fix/repair areas after the actual construction has started.  This project will have a tremendous impact on the school for many generations! 

                The annual TEACHER APPRECIATION WEEK is Monday, 5/6 through Friday, 5/10 and the school has a host of activities scheduled to show appreciation for the DYNAMITE teachers we have in the MC2 Family!  The administrators will be serving lunch to all staff on Wednesday, 5/8 – and Smithfield has donated meat for this endeavor.  Each staff member will be receiving a gift and the local Parent-Teacher Organization (PTO) is sponsoring breakfast for the staff all week.  Mrs. Jessica Webb, HS Administrative Assistant, does a tremendous job planning for this event and there are daily activities for the staff all week.  If/when you can, please contact the teachers you know and share your appreciation.  Personally, I am so honored and proud to work with our teachers – they are the true heroes of our school!

                Friday, May 3rd, the Milan Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) chapter sponsored the 2nd Annual Most Valuable Person (MVP) Breakfast.  This was an opportunity for our staff to honor students that go ‘above and beyond’ in the classroom and represent the “Striving for Excellence in Everything” mission of our district.  The impact our staff has on students AND the impact our students have on our staff is unbelievable! 

                Thank you for your support and please do not hesitate to contact me with questions, comments or concerns.  My number is 660-265-4414 Ext. 1 or my email is byocom@milan.k12.mo.us.  Remember, it is truly a GREAT DAY to be a MILAN WILDCAT!
