23 Millard South students competed at UNL Math Day on Thursday, November 20th. Over 1,500 students from 105 high schools competed. The event consisted of an individual and math bowl competition. Congratulations to Zach W who tied for 1st place in the Probe I individual competition and finished in 4th place after Probe 2 which earned him a $4,000 scholarship to UNL. Eddy Y finished in 20th place on the Probe 1 individual competition and also qualified for Probe 2. The math bowl team of Zach W, Eddy Y, Jasmine P, and Katie S finished in 4th place out of 14 Class I teams with 4 wins and 2 losses. All should be congratulated for their efforts in a very competitive day and for proudly representing Millard South.
night at the Millard South Softball end-of-season banquet, the team was able to make a $797 donation to the Team Jack Foundation. This donation was a direct result of our "Swing for the Cure" Tournament. Former MS Patriot and University of Nebraska pitcher and current Minnesota Twin, Brian Duensing, was there to receive the donation on behalf of the Team Jack Foundation and the Jack Hoffman family. Thanks to everyone who supports the fight! This is the Patriot way: Love, Serve, Care!

All freshmen attended a Respect Retreat November 6th & 7th. Students spent the day learning about respecting themselves, respecting others, and standing up (not being a bystander)
Youth Frontiers makes sure the students know that the retreat is just one day in time.
The challenge is to use what they learned going forward. We now have had 75% of our MSHS population attend a retreat.
In the rich tradition of excellence and community at Millard South High School,
we guarantee each student develops and demonstrates personal, social,
and academic excellence through world-class opportunities and expectations.
