Upcoming News & Events, 5/10 and Beyond
Happy Friday, Friends!
It was a great week here at the Milford Public Schools. Many beautiful activities – and many more to come as we count down to June 10th (the last day of school). During the coming week, there will be SEVEN spring concerts, the high school art show opening, a Board of Ed meeting … the list goes on and on! We hope to see you at one or more of these great events.
And as always, we’ve uploaded lots of flyers on the Electronic Bulletin Board. Check ‘em out.

In addition to the Run, however, the folks at Foran High School have added a new element to the day – a Wiffle Ball Bash. Registered teams will have some fun and raise money for a great cause – the Danni Kemp Cancer Support Fund. Danni, a former star athlete at Foran High, lost her battle with cancer a few years ago and the Foran High School community conducts many fundraising events in her honor every year. Please join us next Saturday and help support this well-deserved fundraiser.
In closing, we wish all the Moms and ‘Special Someones’ out there a restful, happy Mother’s Day! The work you do is terrific.
Have a great weekend, folks.
