Your Milan Middle School FUNDRAISER STARTS SOON! Please consider helping when our fundraiser starts on Wednesday, August 24th . We are looking for ALL students and parents to participate in our yearly fall fundraiser. Even if you only sell or purchase 1 item, it REALLY helps our school! What this fundraiser helps cover are OTHER expenses such as technology/computer equipment and upgrades, teacher supplies, gym equipment, and so much more. We receive very little or no funding for those items. If EVERYONE would TRY to just hit a “6 item goal” or make a DONATION, we could take care of our fundraising needs! Once again, we still will offer ONLINE ordering this year. It is super easy to do! As always, we have a very exciting Prize Program that the students LOVE plus a TON of giveaways while our sale is going on! Our goal is 100% participation. It is critical that all parents and students try to help so it is a team effort and we are not relying on a small percent of the students supporting the entire school. Thank you for your support and for investing in our students.

When you train and teach someone for their next steps at #MilanCTE, they become yours. When you have multiple “yours”, sometimes you are kneecapped with the time to help them all. But wanting the best for them doesn’t stop with the diploma. Christina McKnight is an MHS 2022 graduate that reached out this month with a request for a better job with a company that would help support her goals and dreams. Say no more. Props to our industry partner, Patrick McHale and the staff of NHC Healthcare. He saw the dynamic potential in this kid and said YES. Christina had some government type paperwork that needed to be handled so that she could take the next steps towards self sufficiency. This teacher had 4 nursing shifts scheduled and was panicked. I was helpless as I was budgeted out in my time. Enter Kimberly Hudgins and the Innovative High School Grant-GCSSD, TSSD and MSSD. We gained her through our Work Coach position created by this grant and she has proven irreplaceable. Kim has taken Christina all over this side of the state to gather paperwork and help her gain needed documents to start work, and get this permit. Kim didn’t flinch-she just dug in and made phone calls, and set appointments. She went above and beyond. THIS is what a CTE education can do for you. THIS is the behind the scenes and the science of our success. THIS is a team that is built to do whatever it takes. #PathAndAPlanFORALL
