Student early out, parent-teacher conferences set for Friday

By ROBERT WESTBROOK
Superintendent, Milano ISD

A s the leaves turn color and the chill returns to the air, we are reminded of the wonders of Mother Nature and her seasonal transitions. We began the school year under the scorching summer sun and are now preparing for winter weather.

Just as Mother Nature transitions us from one season to another, so to0 do our student athletes transition from one sport to another. Our fall sports seasons, consisting of football, volleyball and cross country, have come to a close and we now begin our basketball seasons.

Our football team wound up the season with a 6-4 record and narrowly missed making the playoffs in a very tough district, falling to No. 2 ranked Burton in double overtime. Our other two district losses were by a combined total of three points. Our boys played hard and we look forward to seeing them compete in other sports throughout the remainder of the school year.

Our girls’ volleyball team finished the season as district, bi-district and area champions, falling to Cayuga in the regional quarterfinals. Cayuga has advanced to the state tournament to be played this weekend in Garland and we wish them the best of luck.

In cross country, our boys and girls teams both advanced to regionals, which I believe is the first time in school history both teams have advanced in the same year.

Our varsity girls basketball team actually started the season last week, playing Buckholts. Our varsity boys will begin the season this coming Friday by traveling to Rosebud–Lott. We are looking forward to seeing what the season holds for our hoopsters this season.

We will have an early out Friday, Nov. 16. The purpose of this early out is to conduct parent–teacher conferences. The conference is a time to talk about how that student is doing in school. It’s a chance for parents to ask questions about the class or their child’s progress. It is also a time for parents and the teacher to work together as a team to discuss ways to help our children.

Whether your child is in elementary, middle, or secondary school, parent-teacher conferences are important.
