Reading:  a pillar for life - March 23, 2017

by David Johnson, Milton Times

The more that you read, the more things you will know.  The more that you learn, the more places you'll go - Dr. Seuss, "I Can Read With My Eyes Shut!"

Would you build a house without a foundation?  Drive a car with no wheels? Or cut some plywood without a saw?

Maybe some of the characters in a Dr. Seuss book might try to do those things, but it sure wouldn't be easy.  We all know projects work best when we have the basics in place to undertake them.

In preparing children for life, it is impossible for parents and teachers to consider every possible curve ball that might come their way.

The best way they can hope for is to provide enough basic preparation so the kids will be able to make their own good decisions and navigate the complex board game of life without too many serious mistakes.

Obviously, a good education is a big step in preparing children for life. And the foundation of a good education is reading.

Two Milton groups, the Foundation for Education, or MFE, and the Early Childhood Alliance, or MECA, have been focused on reading recently.  The MFE, which has raised an impressive $5 million for various school projects since 1996, recently gave a $20,000 grant to school librarian Lori Henry, who had submitted a proposal called For the Love of Libraries.  Read more

MHS Wildcat Health & Wellness Center Running - October 18, 2016

by Mary Gormley Superintendent's Blog

Staff:  I would like to thank and recognize MHS Vice Principal Brian Mackinaw, Athletic Trainer Patty Pauris, and MHS English Teacher Steve Collyer, all of whom worked very hard to get our new Wildcat Wellness Center up and running.  This new, state-of-the-art cardio and weight training facility could not have happened without the knowledge, expertise and enthusiasm of these three staff members.  We are also grateful to the Milton Foundation for Education, who funded this important Health & Wellness initiative.  The weight training room has been in use since mid-September, but the cardio room just opened today.  This will be an invaluable resource for all our students!
