Millbrook Blazers Defeat Woodlands Falcons

Congratulations to the Millbrook Blazers on their dominant football victory on Saturday, November 15th at Mahopac HS in the unseasonable cold. The Blazers defeated Section I champ Woodlands Falcons by the score of 42-23. This team played as a family after losing a key cog, Delvin Wood, to injury last week. Coach Keenan's philosophy of "next man up" was borne out by the entire team as they limited their opponent to 1 TD while the game was still competitive.

Next up - the Hoosick Falls Panthers, currently ranked #3 in the state - at Dietz Stadium (Kingston) next Saturday, November 22nd, at 11:00AM. For those of you who have yet to see a game this season, it's a wonderful time to jump on board the Blazer Express to support the football team that has advanced farther than any Millbrook football team in history!

The Annual Veterans' Celebration Was Held On November 10th

Millbrook Middle School celebrated Veterans' Day a day early on Monday, November 10th as the entire student body welcomed 23 of our local heroes with thunderous applause. This year all of the 8th graders got a special chance to connect with both veterans and active servicemen over a breakfast of bagels and pastries. The group then moved on to a question and answer session in the auditorium. Many 6th, 7th & 8th graders stood to pose questions to the vets in order to better understand their varied experiences. The event concluded with a Face Time chat with Millbrook alumnus, Stavros Theohary, now a marine stationed in Hawaii. Thank you yet again, Mr. Carbone for leading this very special experience!

6th Grade Artists Create Mandala Drawings

6th Grade Art6th Grade Art













The sixth graders in Miss Holmberg’s first quarter art class recently learned about the ancient Mandala symbol. The word Mandala means “circle" or “completion." Mandalas are circular, radial designs used predominantly in the Chinese and Indian cultures. Mandalas are believed to represent unity and oneness with nature.

The students created their own Mandala inspired drawings using the letters of their name to make the symmetrical shapes and designs. See if you can find their “hidden” names!
