It is with GREAT joy and excitement that I share with you that Midway has scored Excellent on our State School Report Card!!! This is wonderful news as it is very difficult with the new system to achieve this level. The design and data collection for the report card has changed so you cannot compare with validity this report with prior reports. You will find our report card at the following link:
I congratulate our students, teachers, and families as it takes the hard work and commitment of all!! Way to go, Mustangs!!! Together, we empower each child to design the future!!!
Please remember that we have Collaborative Planning on Wednesday, December 5, with dismissal at 11:40 a.m. Both breakfast and lunch will be served. If your child will be going home in a different manner, please send a note to your child's teacher. If you need MES Care until 2:25, please send a note for this as well.
Enjoy the weekend by reading a great book with your child and getting a workout with your child!
