Don’t forget: our school is participating in the SchoolStore program this year. This online program helps our school earn cash without students selling door-to-door, collecting money or delivering products. Over 400 merchants, including Sears, Target and WalMart.com, have joined together to offer up to 50% of sales to our school for shopping through SchoolStore.com.
Remember when you are doing your holiday shopping to use the site! You will get the same deals, discounts, and prices that you normally do, and all Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales will be there as well!
To shop and support our school, simply go to www.schoolstore.com and select our school, then click the tab that says “Merchants” and shop!
Congratulations to Mrs. Denee Hayes on being named Midway's new Reading Teacher of the Year!
We are going to have a beautiful, warm spring day for our multicultural festival (tomorrow from 2-4). Remember, it is a completely free event, including food, games, music, prizes, and more. All activities will be held outdoors behind the school. Lawn chairs, umbrellas, and blankets are recommended. Please spread the word!
Please remember that next week is teacher appreciation week. I am very blessed to be working with a school full of awesome teachers at Magnificent Midway!
We do have a limited number of school yearbooks that are still available for purchase, first come, first served.
Also, Friday, May 5th is the last day to pay for the school pictures that were recently sent out. If you do not pay for them, you have to return them to the school.
Lastly, our school will be a voting site this coming Tuesday for the special congressional election. If you are eligible, I encourage you all to exercise your civic right to vote. Voting precincts will be open county-wide for this important election. YOUR VOTE COUNTS!
With Bobcat Pride,
We’ve made it to Spring Break! I sure hope all of you have a restful and enjoyable time off. Personally, I love what Easter represents along with the new life and growth that occurs this time of year.
After we return from our break, things are really going to get hopping. State testing will be occurring, we have lots of field studies and activities planned for various grade levels, and of course, our teachers will still be teaching and our students will still be learning.
One big event we are excited about is the Multi-Cultural Festival, which will be held on Saturday, April 29th, from 2:00pm-4:00pm. We are honored that Midway was selected by The Alpha Center to be the host site for this great county-wide event. We will have food, music, games, and more - - all free of charge and everyone is welcome to attend.
Lastly, thanks for what you all mean to our school, and we’re looking forward to a strong finish during the last six weeks of the school year.
