Upcoming News & Events, 7/20 and Beyond

 

Happy Friday, Milford Public Schools family!

For those who may be new to our Friday afternoon messaging, welcome to UPCOMING NEWS & EVENTS, brought to you by the Milford Public School district.  Each Friday, we will send a short, fun message highlighting upcoming events and other items that are important for parents, staff, and students in Milford to know.  Welcome aboard! 

Each week, we will also include a link to our fabulous UPCOMING EVENTS electronic bulletin board, located on our district website.  Browse around and see what’s happening in our community. (And, of course, being summer – we may not have a lot on there now – but once school resumes, it will be packed; so we suggest you get in the habit of reading your message now – and taking a peek at the webpage).

So … here goes!  Info for the next week or so ahead…..
