December 1, 2014 ‘When-Then’ lets you remind without nagging
You’ve assigned your child a chore to boost responsibility, but sometimes she needs reminding. To avoid nagging, try phrasing the reminder using a when-then construction. For example, “When your homework is finished, then you may play with a friend.” You can also send a silent message. If she should feed the dog before dinner, turn her plate over to indicate “When you feed Fido, then you can eat.”
Please plan on picking up your orders at the Grade 6-8 Middle School Office office ONLY on the on the following days and at the following times:
Tuesday, November 18, 5pm-8pm
Wednesday, November 19, 5-pm-8pm
Thursday, November 20, 6pm-8pm
Please be aware that the orders can only be picked up during these dates and times. There will be a PTA representative checking off each order as it is picked up. The school office will not have any paperwork to be able to release any orders.
No students will be allowed to pick up any orders during the school day.
If parents/guardians are not able to pick up orders during these days and times, please make arrangements with the PTA.
A message can be sent on the Facebook page “miltonvtpta”.
Thank you for your cooperation and involvement as the PTA finalizes this fundraiser.

Milton High School is an inclusive and supportive educational community for students, educators, parents, and the community. Our educational community believes students must take ownership of their learning – thinking critically, creatively, and globally across disciplines, and adapting to a rapidly-changing world. We foster a collaborative partnership among teachers, parents, students and community. In addition to learning in the classroom, co-curricular educational opportunities take place so that Milton students value wellness, cultural literacy and global awareness. All students have challenging 21st Century learning opportunities. Instruction is personalized, research-based, and data-driven. Curriculum, assessments, and instruction, aided by technology, involve students in authentic learning opportunities that require curiosity, imagination, and healthy risk-taking while embracing their personal learning styles. Students, educators and school leaders engage in active and purposeful learning within an organizational structure that promotes collaborative learning partnerships and instills school pride. Assessments provide variety and choice that inform on both the formative and summative level. The Milton learning community values technology as a way of leveraging learning beyond the traditional boundaries of the school. We actively encourage and support student education beyond the secondary level.
