Midland Messenger

May 28-31, 2019

Dear Parents and Families,

As we are winding down the year, we still have important work to do until the last day on June 20th. This is a time for fun and special activities, such as field trips and special school events. Please help our teachers by completing permission slips and being background cleared if you are planning to volunteer.

I want to thank you for attending your child’s conference this past week. We had about 90% of our families in attendance. It was great to see you in the building and hearing about the great work that your child has done this year. I continue to be so proud of our Mustang students and staff for the excellent work that happens at Midland every day!


Mrs. Dawson

5th Grade Testing

Please note that 5th Graders will be testing on Wednesday, May 29th.

It is very important that your child attends school on his or her testing days and gets a good night of sleep the night before!

State testing is required by law, so if your child is absent, they will miss additional classroom instruction time to make-up the assessment.

Multi-Cultural Night is coming soon!
