What are you doing Monday night? Join us for Dr. Cutaia’s next ‘Listen and Learn’ Tour @ ESMS, 7:00 – 8:00 p.m.; she wants to hear from YOU!  

Please join us as Dr. Cutaia continues her ‘Listen and Learn’ Tour on Monday night (Nov. 19th), starting at 7:00 p.m. at East Shore Middle School.  All are welcome, no matter what school/s your student/s attend.  As our new superintendent, Dr. Cutaia is very interested in receiving your input on the following 3 questions:

1. What are you proud of?

2. Where can Milford Public Schools continue to grow?

3. What do you want her to understand about our district’s work and traditions?

Dr. Cutaia will also hold one final ‘Listen’ session on Wednesday, Nov. 28th @ WSMS, 7:00 – 8:00 p.m.

We hope you can attend one of these very important conversations.  Thanks, in advance, for your willingness to help us continue to improve the Milford Public Schools!
