Thank YOU Milliken Families for getting involved with STAFF Appreciation Week

Thank you for signing up using Volunteer Spot for the weeks' activities - almost every spot is full! 

 We still are looking for two-three volunteers to make a breakfast potluck for Tuesday AM.  Please contact ethelmillikenscc@sasktel.net

ALSO we are still looking for a few more gift cards for the teachers’ “Secret Missions” so we are still accepting gift cards at the office until Wednesday.   

Please show your appreciation in any way that works for you – one good idea would be to provide some k-cup coffee/teas to the staff room as they have a Keurig machine to use.

See the link below to sign up to volunteer this week: 


When you link to the website, confirm your email address and you can search the jobs or items that the committee needs help with.

Ethel Milliken Teachers and Staff - SHOW YOUR APPRECIATION!



February 9-13, 2015  Staff Appreciation Week at Ethel Milliken.

The EMSCC is looking for your help to make this week “SUPER” for our local Super Heroes.

We have events planned all week to recognize our great staff and we are asking for help with the following:

We are looking for donations of any denomination of gift cards to be included in a “secret mission envelope”. Each staff member will receive a “secret mission envelope throughout the week, and these gift cards will help them in the completion of their mission. Ideally we would like to ensure that we have enough for each staff member to complete their mission.

We are also serving a Hot “Kaboom” Breakfast to staff on Tuesday Feb 10 in the staff room. We are looking for volunteers to help cook, and some others to donate food items, such as muffins, fruit, Orange juice, etc.

We will be having a “SOUP”er Lunch on Thursday Feb 12 in the staff room. We are looking for some donations of a few homemade soups, salads and a few sandwich platters, along with fruit, veggies, and dessert items for the lunch.

If you are able to donate a dish, time, or would like to help out please contact Kathleen Eisler @ kathleen.eisler@gmail.com on or before Friday Feb 6th.

We have also sent home coloring sheets with each SuperKid to color and write a note about how their teacher is SUPER. Please return these by Friday Feb 6th to the classroom (please fold in half so the teacher doesn’t see the note) there is a special file folder in each room for the coloring sheets. Extra sheets can be found in the office for any other staff member your SuperKid would like to color one for.

We have many surprises for the staff throughout the week but we also encourage each student and family to show their appreciation any way they see fit.

Below you will see a few staff “favourites” that may give you ideas of how you can show your appreciation.

Once again, Ethel Milliken volunteers are assembling gift bags for the less fortunate seniors in our communtiy.  Ethel Milliken has participated in this effort for many years and they are hoping to gather up enough gift items to make 100 or more gift bags.   If you have time to help out, they would like to assemble the bags on Wednesday, December 17th.  Please contact the school (Mrs. Kuntz) for more details.

If you have any small gift items to donate, please drop them off at the school or bring them to the HOLIDAY concert on Monday night.  THANK YOU!


On another note, Ms Weiss is organizing a BOOK SWAP for kids to donate their gently used books and exchange them for some new holiday reading material.  If you have any unwanted KIDS books at home, please bring them to the school.  If you can VOLUNTEER to help with the BOOK SWAP, please contact Ms Weiss.  It is scheduled for Thursday December 18th.


Enjoy this fun filled, festive (sometimes hectic!!) season!
