Safety first! Once you have entered the building, please do not open the outside doors for anyone--period. If someone knocks on the door or looks like they are trying to get in, please let an adult know that there is someone wanting to get in the building and let them handle it.

The Milan Middle School Girls Track and Field team meet with a dramatically improved Flat Rock team at Flat Rock last Wednesday. Our girls were pushed to better performances in a few areas, but injuries, anxieties about our first away meet, and cool weather coupled with a lack of warming up properly contributed to our first loss of the season at 82 to 46.

Highlights of Milan's performances were the shot putters and long jumpers scoring all available points (Griffin, Stanley, Meads, L Miller, M Miller, and Herdt), fantastic 3200m and 1600m runs (Schmidt and Holmes), and the 4 x 100 and 4 x 200 relays (Heldt, Herdt, L Miller, Sielaff, M Miller, and Empson).

The Chess Club Tournament will continue Wednesday, after school, in Ms. Kuenzel’s room. Chess Club members who are no longer in the tournament are encouraged to attend!

Please remember that no bikes may be brought into the building. They need to stay outside and should be locked up for safe-keeping. Also, be careful riding your bikes around the school, especially shortly before and after school. These are very busy times with so many buses and cars dropping off and picking up students. Please be extra careful!

With Spring and warmer weather upon us, please remember the dress code when deciding what to wear to school. In the planner is clearly lists tank tops, muscle shirts, and overly-short skirts and shorts as unacceptable clothing. If you choose to wear any of these, or other unacceptable items, to school, you will be sent to the Guidance Office to call someone to bring you other clothing.

Thank you to everyone who participated in the Chess Club this year! It was a lot of fun! The Chess Tournament was completed yesterday. Congratulations to William Austin, 3rd place, Zayden Murphy, 2nd place, and to our Tournament Champion, Sam McChesney!
