pep fest slimeMilaca Elementary Principal Steve Voshell (right) and Assistant Principal Jeff Meyer (left) made good on their promise to allow students to slime them with space goo (in keeping with this year’s reading theme “Reading is Out of This World!”) if students met their goal of reading 6,000 hours in the month of March during a wrap-up pep fest Friday, March 15.


Elementary food driveDuring the March Food Drive, Milaca fourth grade ALP students and their instructor Valerie Anderson separated and organized the 1,191 pounds of food and $443.10 monetary donations collected from students and staff, which the Milaca Area Pantry can use to purchase another 1,350 pounds. Kindergarten teacher Missy Tellinghuisen organized the drive.
