Milan C-2

EDUCATION MATTERS #34

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

            Happy July!  I trust-hope each of you is experiencing a special summer!  The Milan Elks Lodge sponsored a WONDERFUL Fireworks display for our community!  The Sullivan Country Club also provided a GREAT venue for the event.  Great job to ALL involved!  The food was great and again, the Fireworks were even better!

                If you have been by the campus lately – you will notice that there are a lot of tasks taking place.  When the summer ends, the district will have replaced 100% of the windows in the High School building…  That’s over eighty (80) windows being replaced in two (2) summers!  Last summer, along with the first half of the windows – the entire ‘Building Envelope’ was reviewed (tuck-pointing, roof repair, etc.).  This summer, along with the other half of the windows, the entire Heating-Ventilation-Air Conditioning (HVAC) system is being removed and replaced.  The district is constructing a STORAGE BUILDING that will also serve as a field-house for the football teams on the north end of the campus.

In the spring of 2016, the district implemented a Long Range Master Facility Plan.  The plan is designed to have three (3) phases and each phase will have two (2) over-arching areas:  Renovation and New Construction.  The entire plan is designed to last approximately fifteen (15) years.   The tasks listed above are part of the 1st Phase-Renovation portion and is expected to last five (5) years.  After this summer, the next step within the plan is to begin renovating the interior of the High School building:  specifically, the floors, doors, walls, etc. 

The New Construction portion of the plan will be to address the biggest needs within the district, while adhering to the realistic funding opportunities.  Tentative plans are to review options to construct a gymnasium, commons area/cafeteria and a kitchen.  This would allow the current cafeteria/small gym area to be transformed into a Library-Media Center.  The size and scope of the facility is yet to be determined and the school board will be reviewing options for this in the coming months.  Either way, it is an exciting time at Milan C-2!  We are collectively providing a MUCH-BETTER opportunity for our kids!

You may have seen the announcements, but if not – instead of the traditional OPEN HOUSE, we will be hosting a BACK-TO-SCHOOL BASH on Wednesday, August 16th from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.  This will include a ‘meet and greet’ with the staff, games for the students and a host of other activities to ‘kick-off’ the 2017-2018 School year.  Please make a point to come out!  The entire activity will be held in the north parking lot area on the Milan C-2 Campus.  If weather deters the activities, the event will be moved inside.

The FALL PRACTICES for HIGH SCHOOL students will begin on MONDAY, July 31st, 2017.  Please continue to check various platforms for updated practice and scheduling information.  The district sponsors three (3) FALL SPORTS in the High School – Football, Softball and Cheerleading.  All students must have a current and completed physical form on file before being allowed to practice.  The other activities/organizations will likely resume activity when school starts on August 17th, 2017.  Believe me…  August will be here before you know it!

Personally, I am VERY EXCITED to begin the next year!  WE would not have been able to make the GREAT STRIDES without the presence and support of the community!  Remember that no matter what – EVERY DAY IS A GREAT DAY TO BE A MILAN WILDCAT!  Please feel free to contact me at school (660-265-4414 Ext. 1) or via email – byocom@milan.k12.mo.us.  We will continue to STRIVE FOR EXCELLENCE in EVERYTHING!  Our kids deserve NOTHING LESS!  Have a great July!
