It is always hard for me to believe that we are coming to the close of another school year at Milford Middle School.  The year really flew by.  It is always sad when we come to the end of the year.  This year we had such a wonderful group of students who made the year special in so many ways.  I would like to thank the community, the faculty, staff and students for making this another outstanding year.  Our dedicated staff has worked with our students all year long, preparing them for advancement to the next grade level and assisting them in becoming independent learners and thinkers.  Students continue to do their best to achieve the high standards that are expected by the staff and community.  Students, teachers, parents and the community deserve a round of applause for their effort and dedication to the educational process.  Working together we continue to make a difference.

I would like to take this time to congratulate Mrs. Freeman, Mrs. Vaupel and the cast and crew of Mystery at Shady Acres.  The play was an overwhelming success.  The students did a wonderful job in their performance, coming together to create an excellent entertaining play.  Both nights of the performance were very well attended.  A very special thank you to Mrs. Freeman, Mrs. Vaupel and all the students and parent and staff volunteers that worked hard together to produce the play and make it such a success.   There is a lot of time and effort that is put into the production behind the scenes to make the play successful.  Thank you all for doing such a wonderful job.

This year the 8th Grade Completion Ceremony will be held on Thursday, June 19th at 6:30PM in the MMS Gymnasium with the 8th Grade Farewell Social immediately following in the cafeteria.  All 8th grade students are invited to attend the Social.  Only MMS 8th grade students may attend the Social as it is meant as a time to celebrate your child’s time at MMS, to share memories and help prepare for the next step in their school careers.  I wish to thank the MMS PTO for sponsoring the Social and all the 8th grade activities that take place at the end of the year.  Our 8th Grade Celebration and PTO sponsored BBQ will also be held on June 19th.  Students need to return their slips to their homeroom teachers by Wednesday, June 4th.

The last day of school will be June 20th.  It is a half day of school for students.  Students at the middle school will be dismissed at 11:00AM.  We will be offering breakfast to those students who wish to purchase it.  Report cards will be mailed home before the end of June once all grades have been calculated and assigned along with the Summer Reading lists for each grade level.  Students returning to the middle school next year will receive their team and homeroom placement letters in mid-August.  It is important that students reconcile any accounts that they may have with the school and find lost books.  Students that have books that have been damaged and are unusable will be expected to reimburse the school for the cost of the book.  All equipment must also be turned into the school prior to June 20th.

On behalf of the middle school faculty and staff, I wish all of our school community a peaceful, restful and safe summer.  Enjoy your summer vacation and we look forward to working with you and your children again next year.
