A Note From the Teacher
It has been a great week. The children had a lot of fun learning all about plants and animals at the pond. We have really enjoyed acting out the book Jump, Frog, Jump by Robert Kalan. We will continue this unit next week in preparation for our upcoming field trip to Sesqui!
We have also enjoyed our Boosterthon Team Huddles each week. We have learned that TEAMWORK, CURIOSITY, and PRACTICE are all important skills in life! We will continue with this next week as we prepare for the Fun Run on Friday. Check out our class' dashboard to learn more about our goal and team incentives. We have already reached $28 a lap! Thank you for all your support! All of the children will participate in the Fun Run on Friday regardless of whether they are registered or received a pledge. Please let me know if you have any further questions.
Thank you as always for all your help and support, especially as our year starts coming to a close. Please continue to check your child's yellow folder each day for important information. Have a great weekend!

We are SO excited about our upcoming
Boosterthon Fundraiser Fun Run!!! This will be a PTO fundraiser for the next school year!
Please join us next Friday morning at 8:00 as our children participate in this fun run!
The children will receive a special T-shirt on Friday that we will wear at the Fun Run. (We will have the children change into them on Friday morning to ensure everyone has the shirt for the run.)
Ask your friends, relatives, neighbors (who don’t attend Midway), coworkers, etc. to make a pledge per lap that your child walks/runs …OR…they may wish to give Midway a flat donation if they prefer.
**The students will walk/run between 25-35 laps. Each lap is 1/16 of a mile.

And if you’re looking for an easy way to ask for a pledge, upload a photo of your student to funrun.com to personalize their own Student Star video. It’s a fun movie trailer starring your child! You can share it on email or social media to ask for a pledge.
