Principal's Corner

Principal's Corner:  A message from the principal:
Dear Milan Family, 

Greetings and welcome to the school website for Milan Elementary School! 

I am excited to return for my third year as principal at Milan.  I am very honored to be a part the Wildcat family! This is my fifth year as a school administrator and I am so glad for the 2017-2018 school year!  We're off to a great start with new initiatives beginning at Milan. First, we have a Makerspace room where students can go and explore areas of STEAM which is Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math. Teachers are building STEAM activities around the curriculum. Students are excited and are ready to explore. The process involves a complete hands-on experience and problem solving. 

Second, our Hoop House is up and doing very well. School gardens are an integral part of farm to school programs and offer a multitude of educational opportunities. They are wonderful instructional tools and engaging spaces in which to explore the entire curriculum. 

Our school will be celebrating the “PAWS” motto as we build our school community.  We will again be implementing the Positive School Behavior System which promotes good behavior, positive choices along with recognition. Please help enforce this motto at home as well. We should all strive to be:  Prompt and Prepared, Always Show Good Character, Work Hard and Stay Safe and Healthy. 

Milan will join the remainder of the district in focusing on our district-wide goals. 
  • Goal #1 – Foster student excellence and academic with a curriculum that recognizes cultural diversity that engages the community's cultures
  • Goal #2 – Instill excellence in teaching and leadership
  • Goal #3 –Create a school climate and environment that is sate, supporting, inclusive and respectful, 
  • Goal #4 – Engage the district's diverse families and communities in student success.

Finally, it is the staff and students who make Milan Elementary an outstanding school. 
The staff’s commitment to excellence is one of the reasons why Milan Elementary is a great place to learn. My door is always open to you. Please call, or stop by whenever the need arises. Let's work together for the success of our students. 

Thanks for all you do!
