Welcome to Appleton-Milan Elementary School, home of the Eagles!  Students at Appleton-Milan (A-M) are surrounded by teachers and staff who are dedicated to providing a safe and welcoming environment in which students are motivated to feel responsible for their own academic and personal achievements. As always, all staff continually put students first in everything we do and in the decisions and connections we make.  Our goal is success for today, success for tomorrow, success for life!

At A-M, educational experiences are designed to challenge and meet the academic, physical, social, and emotional needs of each student.  Character education is a key component where we “Promote the Positive”.  Our SOAR Initiative this school year has enabled us to promote and ensure an environment where students and staff are Safe, On Task, demonstrate a positive Attitude, and Respect each other, ourselves, and our building.  Academic, athletic, technological, and fine art opportunities are a part of our curriculum.  Each student is recognized as a unique individual and is taught to work with, and appreciate, the uniqueness and diversity of others.  A-M students are also made to feel they are integral members of our school family.  

The students and staff will work hard this year, but have fun while doing so.  Our classrooms are engaging, hands-on, and full of an excitement for learning.  Parents/guardians are an integral piece to our students’ successes and are invited into our building.  A strong partnership between home and school can only enhance all of the learning happening in our building.  Research shows that children of parents/guardians who are involved in their child’s school community do better in school.  

Throughout the year, our teachers and staff will make every effort to keep you informed of your child’s progress.  Communication is a key to success.  Please contact me if you ever have questions, comments, or concerns.

Always learning,


Mrs. Maureen Heinecke                

 A~M Principal
