Good morning! I hope you all had a great holiday weekend. :) I wanted to remind everyone that students have until this Thursday, May 28th at 3:00 pm to submit any missing assignments. Students need to contact the teacher through Teams or email to let them know which assignment they completed. Grades will be finalized this Friday, May 29th. We will mail report cards late next week. Those students who have been working on the enrichment menu are not required to complete activities to turn in this week, however I encourage all of you to continue these over the summer to keep your minds and bodies active and healthy! :)

Good afternoon! Tomorrow, Monday, May 4th, we will begin a new model of learning for the remainder of the school year. Please note, school is NOT over for the year! Students who have done a good job of keeping up with their work and all/most of their grades are good will begin completing a weekly 'menu' of activities tomorrow. If you are in this group, you have been added to a Team called 'MUMS May 2020'. Students should log into Teams and read the information about the weekly activities, and how they will complete the 'Assignment' using Teams. I am also attaching the menu here for all parents and students to look at. :) Students who have not kept up with their work during this distance learning time should expect to hear from the teacher(s) whose class(es) you're not doing well in. Teachers will be contacting you multiple times per week until you are in good standing. If you have any questions about our plans moving forward, please reach out! Thanks, and enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Good morning, Bulldogs! I want to congratulate and thank all of the teachers, students and parents who have worked so hard over the last month to keep our students learning! This hasn't been easy. :) Parents, if you haven't checked your child's grades on Power School recently, please do that soon. We are seeing that students who have completed all or most of their work are earning great grades! Those who are missing work are not. Please use Power School as a means of checking work completion. Teachers are accepting late work, so it's not too late to get caught up. To those students who are all caught up on their work, have an awesome break! For students who are behind on getting work done and submitted, now is the perfect time to get caught up! If students or parents have any questions about specific grades or assignments, please reach out to the teachers. They are anxious to help all students succeed! As a reminder, teachers are also on Spring Break tomorrow and next week and may not be available to communicate. Happy Easter!

YWCA Offers “Safe Sitter” Class Students ages 11-13 can sign up to become a “Safe Sitter” with 3 classes held on Tuesdays, March 19 & 26 and April 2 at the Piqua YWCA. Class sessions are from 4-6 pm. This program is more than babysitting, but a youth developmental program focusing on safety and life skills. Students will participate in small group interactive learning, role-play games and practice rescue skills with manikins. Upon completion of this 6 hour course, students will be a registered safe sitter. Students must attend all classes in order to be certified. YWCA membership is not required. Class size is very limited so sign up early. A waiting list will be taken and more classes will be scheduled if needed. For more information on class fees or to register, stop at the YWCA at 418 N. Wayne Street Piqua or call 773-6626.

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!

Oh, no! :( There was a computer glitch we just found out about, and the MS fees were not correct. We're so sorry about the confusion. We're working hard to get this corrected. For those parents who already paid fees, we will mail you an updated invoice. Again, we apologize for the confusion!
