MES Terrific Kids !

                                                                                                                                           MES Terrific Kids !

    Ms. Carey – This week I have selected a sweet little girl to be our terrific kid. She always is following those bobcat rules and doing everything that is expected from her. She tries her best at everything she does and is a fantastic friend to all of her classmates. She is often the one I see lending a helping hand or trying to cheer up a sad friend. I am so proud to have Isabella be our terrific kid this week!

    Mrs. Walker – We are pleased to announce that we have one dear, sweet little girl who we have chosen to honor this time as our second T.K. She has great manners and is polite at all times in and out of the classroom. She comes right in each morning and takes her folder out and orders lunch quick and quietly. This TK could be TK everyday from our room. We love her smile too. Congratulations Abigail.

    Mrs. Nott – I have two terrific kids this week. This young man is really coming into his own. He is gaining confidence in his reading. He is also a very good friend to others and helps out in the classroom. I am very lucky to have Jareth in my classroom this year.
This young lady is also a very good friend to others. She comes in ready to work every day. She is working hard to improve her writing and she also sings a mean rendition of "Let It Go" from frozen! Congratulations Emily.

    Mrs. Allen – As we approach fall, I like to marvel at the changing colors around me. Sometimes there is a big change and sometimes the change is subtle. I want to recognize my TK student for the big changes I've seen in her since last year. I am lucky enough to have Kierstyn with me for a second year in my classroom. What wonderful changes I've seen in this young lady! I can count on Kierstyn to help in the classroom and to help her classmates. She is much more willing to participate in class discussions and is an avid reader and writer! I've noticed many Bobcat features shining through with this young lady! Kierstyn has come a long way and I'm so proud of her. Kierstyn is really a TK!!

    Mrs. Mower – Our TK this week in 2M is Niama. This girl has been a pleasure to have in class. She has been working really hard at learning our second grade routines. Niama is a wonderful role model to everyone in our classroom. She’s always ready to learn, and doing what is asked of her. Mom says that she spends an hour doing homework, and that is apparent. Her work is neat, and completed on time. Congratulations Niama. Keep up the good work!

    Mrs. Mills – Our terrific kid is a wonderful, polite young man. He has his work done on time and homework handed in each day. He is helpful to others in the class. I am pleased with how patient he was when he was...

RT 11 Project/Milo Main Street Project

Submitted by Izzy Warren on September 22, 2014 - 6:13pm

RT 11 Project:    With the exception of a small amount of paving out at the Business Park, the street paving is completed, as of Friday, September 19, 2014. However, there is still a great deal more to be completed. Throughout the entire project, from the Milo Main Street Bridge, to the first railroad tracks in Brownville, the driveway, street and parking lot entrances have yet to be completed. There is also a considerable amount of sidewalk repair and ditching to be done. Interspersed with all of this work is the final striping and street painting for center lines, parking spaces, cross walks, etc. In Milo, we will also finally get the stamped, textured, colored pavement on Main Street that was promised well before I got her (yes, as of this afternoon, it has been confirmed that it will be completed as part of the RT 11 project). All of this is scheduled to be done over the next three and one half weeks. The MDOT contract finish date is October 18th. There will continue to be men, equipment and flaggers in the road for this entire period.

Please continue to use care and caution, especially in the Milo Main and Park Streets areas. This is the time when so many of you who have griped and complained about the condition of the sidewalks, curbs and driveway in this area should anticipate that a great deal of those items will be repaired during this phase of the project. Please work with the crews in good faith and show them the same levels of respect and courtesy that you would have them show you. The better you treat them, the better they will treat you, and more importantly, the better the job they will do for everybody.
Milo Main Street Project:    In Milo, we have had to wait a very long time for our new street lights to be shipped, delivered and installed. For those of you who don't remember, or perhaps never knew, our new street lights are very similar to those along the river in our Veterans Memorial Park. The arms and light fixtures over the sidewalk will be at one height, and the arms and fixtures over the street will be a good deal higher. Our contractor received confirmation of actual shipment this morning with an expected delivery late this week. I have asked him to schedule installation as soon as practical after their arrival. The RT 11 Project picked up most of the portions of our Main Street (Safe Streets) Project that we didn't receive money enough to do ourselves, and it has been carefully coordinated to assure that all of that work will be done and matched into our project.
