Keeping Informed: Recent Milford Educational News
- Middle Schoolers Learn About STEM Careers - EMC, an international information and technology company located near Milford, recently hosted a STEM career day at Milford Middle School. The goal was to show students that there is a wide range of job opportunities within science and technology companies, including marketing, human resources, sales, finance, etc. EMC targeted middle school students rather than high schoolers because the younger students are less likely to have their minds set on a career yet.
- 266 Milford Students Graduate - The Class of 2014 valedictorian was the first to speak to his graduating peers during the ceremony, reminding them to always love, care, and empathize with others. The class salutatorian built on this, stating that, although she learned many valuable academic skills at Milford, she just as importantly learned how to make friends and set goals that she accomplished as well. The class president told her classmates to always carry all of the lessons they learned with them through their lives.
- Students Receive Lessons on Pedestrian Safety - Before the school year came to an end, students in grades K-5 participated in five 25-minute lessons on pedestrian safety, including tips for bicyclists, which were conducted by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and a local firefighter. Milford’s superintendent decided on adding pedestrian safety to the curriculum following incidents of children being hit by vehicles in the community. He also pointed out that the timing of the lessons was ideal, as the students would be spending more time outside during the upcoming summer break.

Chalk Talk: Educational Jargon: Anecdotal Records
Anecdotal records are simply descriptions and observations of student behaviors and performances. Every teacher should keep a notebook of anecdotal records. With there being so much that occurs in a school day, any teacher is bound to forget an important observation that he/she witnessed. Therefore, this is essential in teachers getting to know each student as an individual and differentiating instruction to meet the needs of each child. With the teacher instructing, helping students, and managing the class, it can be difficult to find the time or even remember to record these notes; however, it is critical that it be done—even if the notes are very brief (although, they should be detailed enough that they are meaningful to the teacher). In a classroom that is more student-centered, teachers will have more time to observe students and jot down notes; they should not rely on memory even if they think they have one the size of an elephant! Additionally, if educators co-teach with one another, the teacher who is not instructing has the opportunity to take notes.
