DISTRICT NEWS: Next Listening Session to be held in February

During the 2011-2012 school year, the district has planned a series of listening sessions open to all community members and attended by Dr. Farrell, Superintendent, Board Members, and other Milford administrative staff. The listening sessions have been a valuable tool for the district to learn from our parents and community members about how we are serving our students and how we can continue to improve. These insights are important as we plan future programs and services.

Upcoming listening sessions... Tuesday, February 7, 7-8:30 p.m. at Pattison Elementary Cafeteria Wednesday, March 28, 7- 8:30 p.m. at Milford High School Cafeteria All parents and community members are welcome to the listening sessions. Feel free to drop in any time during the session and stay for five minutes or the whole time. A parent meeting for those students interested in taking Chinese next year. If there is an interest, Milford may be offering Chinese for grades 8-12 next year. Dr. Huang from the Confucius Institute at Miami University will give a guest presentation at Milford High School’s cafeteria beginning at 7 pm on Wednesday, January 18 regarding the importance of taking Chinese in our global economy.
