As we get closer to Spring we are still dealing with some of the leftovers from the winter weather. Although we have missed several days we will still be keeping our schedule of parent/teacher conference on March 14th from 2:00 until 7:00 and the Graduation ceremony will still be on May 11th.
Our APR (annual performance report) from DESE was released late this year, however our results were quite good. There were no building scores this year, but only one score as a district. As a whole, Milan C-2 scored over a 91% which is as high as our score has been in since I have been here in 8 years. I am VERY proud of our students and staff!!! With that, we are planning for our spring testing to be the first week of May. As we get closer to that time I will communicate and remind parents and students of, the importance of getting plenty of rest and good meals during our testing time.
We had 47 students take the ACT on 2-9-19. This is a great number of students for a school our size and I am excited to see the scores our students were able to achieve.
We are already making plans for student scheduling for the 2019-2020 school year. Each year my goal is to improve our offerings and availability to our students to give them the best opportunity we can. This last year we left the EPN and joined directly with NCMC to offer our upper class students more dual credit options and a schedule that works better with our students’ schedules. Along with that, we have used a program called “launch” this also gives our students an opportunity to take high school classes that we may not be able to offer them. I feel both have been a GREAT addition to our school.
Our FBLA and FFA teams are preparing for multiple competitions and events coming up shortly. Our Jr. high and High school Science Olympiad teams went this last Saturday to Truman and competed against MULTIPLE other schools in NE Missouri and did a great job! Both boys’ and girls’ basketball teams have been playing up a storm and headed into district play at Schuyler this week. The boy’s team will advance to play on Thursday, 2-21-19. The girls lost a hard fought game to South Shelby on 2-19-19 that brought an end to their season.
Hopefully spring will move in quickly and bring some sunshine to warm us up. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the high school office.
Have a great day,
