Dear Milford Families, Colleagues, and Community Members,
On Monday, May 31st, we celebrate Memorial Day. As we enjoy time with family and friends, let us also take an opportunity to remember and express our gratitude to all the men and women who have served and sacrificed for our great nation.
May their commitment continue to inspire us all to serve in positive ways, and to always appreciate those who selflessly protect and care for others.
I wish you a happy and safe Memorial Day holiday weekend.
Ms. Christi Michaud

Dear Families, Colleagues, and Community Partners,
This week is Teacher and Staff Appreciation Week. On behalf of our entire school community at the Milford School District, I would like to share my deep gratitude for our teachers and staff for the work they do every day. Each of our educators is unique, passionate, and aim to match their teaching style to ensure the success of our students.
Our teachers and staff provide “the inspiring community where deep learning and strong relationships empower all students to become the designers of their own story” (Milford's Mission Statement). They deliver the teaching and learning designed to keep our students engaged and on target to graduate from the Milford School District prepared for whatever they choose to do next.
But we all know teachers and staff members do so much more. In collaboration with administrators, teachers and staff guide every generation of learners, they mentor, and they play a vital role in meeting the needs of each child. They partner with parents and caregivers to keep families informed and to contribute to a school community that makes our students feel safe, valued, and respected.
Over the last 15 months of the pandemic, our teachers have also gone above and beyond to quickly learn and adapt to remote and hybrid learning. Many of them have found creative and thoughtful ways to stay connected to students, extending a culture of kindness and respect beyond our school buildings and into our students’ homes.
We can all look back and remember a great teacher who touched our lives, and for that reason, please be sure to thank our teachers and celebrate them this week and into the future.
With gratitude and respect,
Ms. Christi Michaud
Assistant Superintendent
