EDUCATION MATTERS #54

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

“STRIVING FOR EXCELLENCE IN EVERYTHING”

 

                MC2 Nation – I trust and hope this correspondence finds you having an outstanding DAY!  The below table represents our current Inclement Weather and Make Day schedule.  The requirement is that school districts make up the first seven (7) days canceled for inclement weather.  After day number seven (7), schools are required to makeup – every other day – until there are a maximum of ten (10) makeup days – in order to get to the maximum amount of makeup days, schools would need to have missed fourteen (14) days for inclement weather.  Currently, our LAST DAY of student attendance is on Friday-May 24th, 2019.  In the event we were to miss additional days for INCLEMENT weather – we would use Monday, 3/18 and Monday, 4/22 as makeup days.  It has been a CRAZY winter and our school district has actually missed considerably less than other schools in the region due to inclement weather.  No matter what, if anyone has any questions – please do not hesitate to contact me.

Forgiven

                Parent-teacher conferences will take place on Thursday, 3/14/19 from 2 p.m. to 7 p.m.  Parents-guardians of students in the elementary are asked to schedule the conferences with the teachers individually – during the allotted times.  If/when necessary, teachers can make arrangements to hold a conference at another time, but those are scheduled on an individual basis.  The 7th grade through 12th grade teachers will be located in the Milan C-2 Gymnasium in tables, as has been done in the past.  Parents-guardians are encouraged to come in during the specific times.  If you have any questions about any of the conferences, please contact either the elementary (grades PK-6) or the high school (grades 7-12) as soon as possible!

                On Wednesday, 3/6/19 – the staff held its sixth (6th) District Meeting of the year.  The topics included, but were not limited to – school culture, instructional assessments, attitude development and the importance of relationships.  One of the key parts of the meeting was the Encouragement Challenge – each staff member was asked to specifically encourage two (2) people every day.  Typically, this part of the school year is somewhat challenging for all involved and instead of focusing on the potential difficulties – we are trying to focus on encouraging others!  I am certainly excited to see the impact this will have on our school and perhaps even our community.

                The 4th quarter will begin on Monday, 3/11/19 and the annual standardized testing session will begin in April – be on the lookout for more information as time draws nearer.  Students in grades 3 through 8 will be taking grade level exams in Communication Arts, Math, Science and some in Social Studies – students in grades 9-12 will take End-of-Course exams in various courses.  I am continually amazed by the greatness of our staff and students!

                Again, don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions about anything – we have a GREAT school and a GREAT community!  It is truly a GREAT DAY to be a MILAN WILDCAT!  My email is byocom@milan.k12.mo.us and my office number is 660-265-4414 Ext. 1.
