EDUCATION MATTERS #36

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

            September is upon us and school is progressing at a RAPID RATE!  The weather has been absolutely outstanding and our MC2 FAMILY continues to work together to provide a GREAT educational environment for ALL involved!

            This week (9/11---9/15) is the annual HOMECOMING week!  Each day, the students will participate in various SPIRIT ACTIVITIES!  The Lady Cats have a home softball game on Thursday, 9/14 at 5:30 p.m., after the softball game; come out to the annual Community Pep Rally and Coronation.  The rally and coronation begin at 7 p.m. at Cal Hubbard Stadium; school will release at 12:45 p.m. on Friday, 9/15 – with the annual parade beginning at 2 p.m.  The entire week will culminate with the game on Friday night at 7 p.m. against fellow Grand River Conference foe Trenton!  If you have time, please join us for the Softball Game and Pep Rally/Coronation on Thursday, then the parade and game on Friday!  It is GREAT time to be a MILAN WILDCAT! 

            Last Saturday, nearly thirty-five (35) students were treated to a St. Louis Cardinals’ game in St. Louis.  These students scored “Advanced” on last year’s Missouri Assessment Program exams.  Each year, the district tries reward these students for this outstanding accomplishment and for the first time, these students attended a game in St. Louis!  We are very proud of these kids and next year; we hope the number of students scoring “Advanced” continues to grow!

            On Saturday, September 23rd – during the Milan Multicultural Festival – various student organizations will be present to assist in various tasks.  Please make plans to come out to the festival to see our students! 

            Last Friday, 9/8/17 – the students in preschool through the fourth grade celebrated Grandparents Day.  This was the 2nd year the school held this event and the overall attendance doubled from 2016 to 2017.  It was a GREAT experience and the kids really LOVED showing off their work and classrooms to their grandparents!  I personally want to pass along my sincere appreciation to each of the grandparents for attending last Friday!

            As the year progresses, parents – please remember to continually ‘check in’ with your son/daughter every day on their experiences at school.  Many studies show that when students discuss their scholastic experiences after school, their ability to retain the information improves greatly!  If/when a question arises, do NOT hesitate to contact the appropriate person at school.  As you know, I firmly believe that the school and the parents/guardians are ‘partners’ in educating the students.  We are in this together!

            Have a great month!  Remember, we believe every day is a GREAT DAY to be a MILAN WILDCAT and we always STRIVE FOR EXCELLENCE in EVERYTHING!
