1. The Woodland School project, which would replace the existing elementary school with a new school, will require a zoning change that will allow the building to exceed the current height restrictions. Town Meeting in February will be asked to approve that. The article will have a public hearing tonight at the Planning Board, beginning at 7 p.m.

2. The entire Woodland School will be opened for public viewing on Wednesday. The idea is to allow residents a first-hand look at crowded conditions in the school, which is part of the argument for the new building. The open house begins at 6 p.m. and will include members of the Woodland School Building Committee.

3. Shelly Leclaire, a candidate for Highway Surveyor, returned the required number of signatures on paperwork on Monday. She will face incumbent Scott Crisafulli on the ballot for the April 1 town election.

4. The Milford High School National Art Honor Society on Saturday will host its 6th annual Kid's Valentine Art Workshop from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in Room E2 at the high school. Under the direction of Carolann Tebbetts, Visual Arts Instructor, children ages 6-10 will make three creative valentines which will be mailed, so bring along three addresses! Techniques will include kiragami, collage and creative lettering. A pizza lunch and materials are provided for $40 per child. See the announcement for more information.

5. In Case You Missed It: Sen. Richard Moore has co-signed legislation that would establish a mandatory minimum sentence for juveniles convicted of first degree murder.
