Midland Messenger

June 17-20, 2019

Dear Parents and Families,

Congratulations on the completion of an excellent school year for your student! This year we have worked hard, given our best, and everyone moved a step or two closer to their goals and dreams.


I hope you and your family have a safe and enjoyable summer. If your student and your family are moving on, we will certainly miss you. If you are coming back to Midland next year, I look forward to seeing you on Tuesday, August 20th from 5:00-6:30 pm for our Back to School Ice Cream Social!


Thank you for the honor of educating your children!


Mrs. Dawson
