Important Dates & Times for August: The following information was included in a letter mailed to all students this week. :) The week of August 6th – 10th will be new student registration for the middle school. If you know of any new students who have moved to the area over the summer, please let them know to stop in the office between 8:00 and 2:00 any day that week to complete enrollment paperwork. Students and parents will be able to stop in any time between 8:00 and 2:00 the week of August 13th – 17th to pay school fees, pick up their schedule for the year, and can access the building to find their classrooms and practice opening their lockers. We will have student volunteers here all week that week from our National Junior Honor Society who will be able to help any new students finding rooms or answer questions about the middle school.  In addition to these days, the middle school office will also be open Thursday, August 16th from 5:00 to 7:00 pm to accommodate parents who are unable to make it in during the day. As we are a One-To-One school district, all middle school students will be issued a school-owned laptop for their use during the school year. There are two opportunities for students and parents to learn about and receive the devices before school starts. We are having meetings from 7 – 8 pm on Tuesday, August 14th and Thursday, August 16th in the cafeteria. You don’t need to attend both, as they are the same meeting being held twice for families’ convenience. At these meetings, we will introduce some of the R-Factor skills we will be working on this year across the district, as well as discuss the laptops students will be using. Parents do need to be present and sign the consent form for students to receive their laptop. Lastly, we will have our district Open House on Monday, August 20th from 5 – 7 pm. This is a great opportunity to meet the teachers, view completed classrooms, and have any questions you have answered. Students often like to bring some or all of their supplies that evening to avoid having to carry so many items with them on the first day. If you wish to do this, simply put your name on your supplies and items, and leave them in your first period teacher’s classroom.

On Wednesday, March 14th, students at Milton-Union Middle School will explore positive and proactive ways to make their world a better place. There have been movements and suggestions across the country for a student walk-out based on the recent school shooting in Florida. The teachers and I feel that this is not safe and may not send the right message to our students and community. Instead, we are going to offer them suggestions for ways that they can act to help make their voices heard, and their world a better place. Some of the suggested activities for students are: Develop an invention or an idea to improve school safety ; Honor the victims of the Florida school shooting with 17 positive acts ; and Write letters to elected officials about your ideas for positive change. If you would like more information, have ideas for our students, or would like to help in any way, please contact your child's Academic Assist teacher or the office. Thank you!

Last Saturday, at Edison Community College, Evan Beard and Madison Stasiak presented their science fair projects to multiple judges. Congratulations to these two students on all of their hard work. Special congrats to Maddie, whose project was scored as superior, meaning she is eligible for the State Science Fair held at The Ohio State University in May! :) Thanks to Mr. Kinninger for guiding them through this process.

Flu and cold season is here. We'd like to remind parents and students that the absence hotline number is 884-7933. Also, if the student is able to complete work at home, that significantly helps when they return to school. Please remember to request and pick up work when you call the absence hotline number. Thanks!
