Our 2015-2016 Kindergarten Parent Orientation will be held on April 8, 2015. See attached flyer for details.
You might have heard that 3rd and 4th Grade Students have been busy in the Art Room working with clay creating bowls. These bowls are going to become part of our “Milton Community Empty Bowl Project.” February 19th. This event is part of a grass-root program which began in 1990, by a group of Art Teachers out West to bring awareness to children who either go to bed hungry or head to school without breakfast. We will be supporting the MFCC with donations of can/box goods for their food shelf.
With the help and support of Steve Marinelli (Food Service), we will have three types of soups (Bisque, Chicken, Vegetable), artisan breads, and students helping to server water.
Empty Bowl Night will take place in our middle school dinning room, from 5:30 – 7:00 pm.
The bowls the children made will be given away at the M.C.E.B.P. As of today, 301 Bowls have been created. These bowls will be placed on tables for community members to take with them.
Any questions, please stop by or call me.
Looking forward to sharing a wonderful Event for Our Milton Community!

Good Morning. This is an Alert Now Message from the Milton Town School District. Due to Winter Storm Warning that is posted for the entire day and with the heavy snow fall that is predicted, all schools in the Milton Town School District are closed for today.

Milton Town School District
The Milton Early Education Program is our publicly funded preschool located at the Milton Elementary School. Our program provides preschool education services for over 100 children ages 3-5. We are accredited by the National Association For The Education of Young Children and we have achieved 5 Stars from the Department of Children and Families. The teachers and speech therapists who work within the program are all master level teachers and the support staff is highly trained.
One primary purpose of our program is to provide special education services for young children who are on Individual Education Plans. These services happen within the integrated classrooms. In order to provide an integrated environment for our youngest learners, there are community slots available to children ages 3-5 who reside in the town of Milton. There is no cost for these slots and all children can access busing. The 3 year old program is two 1/2 days and the four year old program is three 1/2 days per week. There are both morning and afternoon preschool sessions. Enrollment in the program for community slots occur through a state mandated lottery draw each April. Once a child is enrolled, they are eligible to attend preschool until Kindergarten age.
If you are interested in entering your child in to the lottery for the 2015-16 school year, please use the following link and fill out the brief survey. Children must be 3 years old by 9/1/15. All information is kept confidential. If you have any questions about community slots or the lottery draw please call Jennifer Knowles at 893-5613 or 316-6181 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
If your child was on the waiting list for the 2014-15 school year you will need to re-enter them in the lottery for the 2015-16 school year. If your child currently attends our program there is no need to re-enter the lottery. If you have any questions or concerns about your child’s development please call 893-5613 and one of our special education teachers or speech therapists will get back to you to schedule a screening.
Please note that slots are VERY limited especially in the 4 year old class. Do not hesitate into looking for other preschool options for your child. There are also slots available in community preschool settings through the Early Education Collaborative (not in the school). If you are interested in more information about those slots, please contact Wendy Cunningham at 802-324-1211 or email@example.com

Stop and jot the way to better book reports
By the time your child has finished the last chapter of a book, has she forgotten the details of the beginning? Your child will have an easier time writing book reports if she stops and jots down a short summary (one or two paragraphs) every time she reads a chapter or two. When she finishes the book she can review her notes and edit them into a final report.

Unwrap holiday meanings for your child
You know there is much more to holidays than getting gifts. But does your child? Set aside some quiet moments to talk with your child about the meanings of the holidays your family celebrates. Read books together about the December holidays: Christmas, Hanukkah and Kwanzaa. Try to plan at least one event this month that stresses giving, not getting. Can your child donate toys to a charity drive?

What makes a book better for young readers? These six things
Children just learning to read need books that help them along. When you visit the library with your child, look for books with: 1. Rhythm and rhyme. 2. Repeated words and sentences. 3. Predictable plots. 4. Events that follow a natural time sequence. 5. Pictures that provide clues to what is happening. 6. A plot or character your child can relate to. Let your child check out several to read with you at home.
