EDUCATION MATTERS #37

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

The month of October is FULLY UPON US!  As usual, the MC2 Family is busy with a multitude of activities! 

On Thursday, 10/5/17 – the district held its annual MUFFINS FOR MOMS.  This year, due to the district’s reorganization – the event was for all students and “Moms” in grades PK-6.  I am pleased to announce that there was over two hundred and thirty (230) mothers present!  According to Mrs. Pauley, this is the LARGEST turnout she has had in four (4) years!  Thanks to ALL who participated! 

The MC2 District is partnering with the Milan Chamber of Commerce to bring “The Flight Basketball” Presentation on October 19th, 2017 for an assembly at school and then for a community presentation on Monday, 10/23/17 at 6:00 p.m.  This group provides a ‘skills’ showcase that provides a ‘unique and innovative event’ that provides ‘high character’ lessons for the attendees! 

The 1st Quarter of the 2017-2018 School Year will end on Friday, October 13th, 2017 and the annual Parent-Teacher conferences from the 1st Quarter will be on Thursday, October 19th, 2017 from 2:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.  School will release at 12:45 p.m. on 10/19/17 as well.  School will not be in session on Friday, 10/20/17 and Monday, 10/23/17.  Parents of students in preschool through 6th grade will need to schedule an appointment with the teachers and parents of students in 7th through 12th grade will be able to visit the teachers in the MC2 gymnasium.  Please make plans to attend and participant in the Parent-Teacher Conferences – it’s a GREAT WAY for parents/guardians to assist in their child’s educational journey.

I am VERY PROUD to present that the Milan C-2 Elementary School has been recognized as a NATIONAL PROFESSIONAL LEARNING COMMUNITIES’ (PLCs) SCHOOL!  In Missouri, there are only eight (8) other schools that have obtained the prestigious status!  The PLC process centers everything around four (4) primary questions – 1. What is being shared/taught to the students (Curriculum and Instruction)?  2.  How is the school ensuring that the students are learning (Assessment)?  3.  What does the school do if/when a student is not learning the material (Intervention)?  4.  How does the school respond when the students display mastery (Enrichment)?  Mrs. Pauley, Mrs. Tipton and the entire PK-6 Team is continuing to DO great things for the kids in this school!  It’s a tremendous accomplishment! 

As you know the school is in the midst of a LONG-RANGE MASTER FACILITY PLAN and concluded the 2nd year of the 1st phase this past summer (replaced the rest of the windows and replaced the entire HVAC system within the HS building).  The next step within the plan is to address the floors, doors and walls within the High School building.  Ideally, this work will be completed during the Summer of 2018.  The new construction options will be shared in the coming months as the Board of Education will be holding a special meeting in early November to discuss the scope.

We continue to serve each kid EVERY DAY to the best of our ability and WE need YOUR (as community members) HELP to provide an OUTSTANDING EDUCATIONAL environment!  If you need anything or have any questions – do NOT hesitate to contact me at 660-265-4414 Ext. 1 or at byocom@milan.k12.mo.us.  Remember, EVERY DAY IS A GREAT DAY TO BE A MILAN WILDCAT!
