Don’t forget that the Milano ISD PATCH Club is still collecting “Box Tops For Education.” There are containers at the school offices or just send them to school with your students. The box tops are sent in and the school earns free money. The club’s goal is 10,000 box tops this school year and they are less than 1,900 box tops away from it.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the family of Marjorie Bailey, as she passed away last week. She was such a wonderful person, teacher and historian for our little town. Her presence will be greatly missed by all.
