Busy times ahead at MISD
On Friday, Milano Elementary hosted our annual Fall Festival. It was great to see so many parents, students and community members out supporting our children. There was a wide array of activities available for everyone to participate in and everyone appeared to have a great time. I’m sure the proceeds raised by each class will be put to good use.
The volleyball team is doing very well this season. Currently, our Lady Eagles are in a tie for first place in district and are marching towards the playoffs. The Lady Eagles varsity and junior varsity teams play at Holland on Saturday and will host Thrall on Tuesday.
Our younger volleyball squads are having great success as well. The seventh and eighth grade squads have had outstanding performances and the future for Lady Eagle volleyball looks bright.
The junior high squads will travel to Thrall on Thursday and will host Georgetown Gateway on Monday.
Our varsity football team kicks off district competition on Friday by hosting the highly regarded Burton Panthers. While kickoff is set for 7:30, come early and enjoy good food and fellowship. The senior class Project Graduation group will host a barbecue meal before the game, with serving to start at 5 p.m. Come out and support the senior class and enjoy some good barbecue and company.
Our younger football teams have been doing well this season. The JV plays at College Station this Thursday while our junior high team travels to Burton.
Our cross country teams will have their district competition on Monday, Oct. 22. This group of student athletes gets up early and begins practicing at dark-thirty several mornings each week. It takes a tremendous amount of dedication and devotion, not to mention a love for running, to get to school early and work out before the sun comes up.
Senior portraits will be taken on Tuesday, Oct. 16. Parents, when you get the proofs, the realization starts to hit home that your son or daughter is really growing up and this is their last year in high school. Encourage them to do their very best and enjoy the time you have with them before they graduate and venture off onto the next phase on their life. If you have any questions regarding senior portraits, please feel free to contact Bridget Barfield at MHS.
On Wednesday, Oct. 18 we will administer the PSAT to our junior class. It’s not too early for our juniors to start thinking about college entrance exams and planning the next phase of their educational journey.
