MIDWAY ELEMENTARY SCHOOL MISSION
The mission of Midway Elementary School is to create a safe and nurturing learning environment, in collaboration with our community, which fosters the total development of every child.
December 1, 2017
The excitement of the holidays is in the air! Please support our children for quality learning by maintaining bed, reading, and homework times. We want the best learning opportunities for all students!
Please note that Wednesday, December 6, is Collaborative Planning. School will be dismissed at 11:40 a.m. and both breakfast and lunch will be served. If your child is going home in a different way or needs MES care until regular dismissal time, please write your child's teacher a note.
School Report Cards were released by the SC Department of Education. Here is the link to Midway's report card. I am so very proud of our students', teachers', and parents' hard work! It takes a village to raise a child! Thank you all!
Enjoy the weekend and, yes, read, read, read!!
