From Assistant Principal, Chris Bussell

Friday, November 26

As the Thanksgiving holiday approaches, I want to take this opportunity to express how grateful I feel to be a part of this amazing community of teachers and learners. I had always heard that Midway Elementary School was a special place, and now I know that to be true. It is my privilege to work alongside such wonderful faculty, staff and students each day. And a big Thank You to the supportive families and wonderful community that help to make Midway what it is. I hope you all have a very Happy Thanksgiving.
