Greetings Dear Friend,

Welcome to MileStone Academy's December 2021 Newsletter!

Undoubtedly, the winter season would not be so popular without endless celebrations. From Christmas to Hannukah to Kwanzaa and then the new year. Many of our favorite traditions and gatherings happen during winter months.

So, what is winter? What does this season mean to you? For MileStone, winter is more than cold, ice, and snow. There is something very special about this time of year.

December’s newsletter will share the most recent MileStone Happenings and provide you with important educational tips and resources.

Join us in congratulating Jose Torres on his acceptance to McDaniel College!!!

McDaniel College is a private liberal arts college in Westminster, Maryland. Established in 1867, it was known as Western Maryland College until 2002 when it was renamed McDaniel College in honor of an alumnus who gave a lifetime of service to the college. 

We are so proud and congrats again!
Saying Goodbye to Ms. Carol Wolf...
We are going to miss your dearly!
It is with mixed feelings that we announce the retirement of our beloved and much appreciated, Carol Wolf. It is difficult, to sum up, Carol’s achievements over the last seven years of dedicated service at MileStone Academy.

As a founding member of MileStone, Carol helped shape the vision and mission of our school because she knew as a parent of children that had learning differences how important it is to find the right school for your child. 

Carol will always be remembered as a warm caring professional who was dedicated to helping children succeed. As the initial point of contact for parents looking for a placement for their children, she was committed to helping parents find the right school for their child even if it was not MileStone.

We are creating a tribute video for Carol and would like you to participate by recording a video message to her. Please follow this link to create a special message for her via Tribute.

Even though she will no longer be working here she has agreed to continue her work on our Board of Directors. 

Please join in our special tribute to celebrate Carol’s commitment and dedication and wish her all the best by participating in the tribute video. 

If you have any questions, please email Mrs. Michele Hewitt-Webster for more information
Classroom News
As part of MileStone Academy’s Thanksgiving Feast, Ms. Appel decided to have a little pre-game with a challenging, yet fun science project!

Our hypothesis was:

Cranberries can float in water while holding a penny…or as many pennies you can stack without falling or sinking. 

Did it work? Watch our video to find out...and then you can try at home!
We are so grateful for each and every student, faculty, staff, and volunteer of MileStone Academy. Enjoy this loving video recap of our 2021 Thanksgiving celebration.

A Message From Mrs. Brown...
Mindset is everything and it is quite important for making your life better. You can use this power to think positively and bring wonders to your life.

Having a positive and healthy mindset is especially important, as it will help a person achieve their goals in a useful and meaningful direction. It is important to have a certain mindset focused in a positive direction, as this will help achieve the significant goals of life and maintain a healthy mindset that ultimately takes us to the path of very healthy living.
