Summer is in full swing, and while many of our Milton Public School families are enjoying some much-deserved time off, there is also work to be done here in the district. Our summer programs are having another successful year, with nearly 700 students attending some type of MPS program, including Milton Summer Enrichment, Camp Cunningham and the SPED Department’s ESY programming. Our Central Office staff works year-round, closing out the books for 2015-16 and preparing for the upcoming 2016-17 school year. The custodial staff members are deep cleaning classrooms, lockers, hallways and offices. We are also busy hiring teachers and staff for the fall and of course, all of us plan to take at least a little time to spend with friends and family this summer. Please enjoy the beautiful summer weather, help your child stay on top of their summer assignments, and relax!
