We are so proud of all ourEagles and Lady Eagles competing this year and they are doing so with much success. The Eagle football team is headed to the playoffs after going 9-1 during the regular season. They will play Burkeville at 7 p.m. Friday, Nov. 11 in Willis. The Lady Eagles volleyball squad lost in bi-district playoffs last week, but were district champions.

Our boys cross country team competed at the regional meet on Saturday and did well. Most of those boys are underclassmen and should do good things in the years to come. The town of Milano is proud of each and every one of you.

Milano’s Parent-Teacher-Child ( PATCH) Club will meet on Thursday, Nov. 10 at 6 p. m. in the elementary library. All parents and teachers are invited to attend. The group would also like to thank everyone who donated to the “ kiss the pig” fund-raiser held recently. The “ winners” having to give the cute piggy a smooch was Neva Caffey (elementary), Julie Graham ( junior high) and Catrina Steinbecker (high school).

The Milano Elementary PATCH Club is also collecting “Box Tops for Education” as part of their fund-raising activities this year. You can find them on several food items. Just cut them out and send them to school with your child. It’s free money for our school.

Report cards will go out next week as the end of the second si x week s grading per iod is Friday.
