Dear Mustangs,


What a busy time of year this is!! Thank you all for your patience with signing in when entering the building and for being very watchful during arrival and dismissal! Together we will keep all of children safe so that we have a joyful holiday. Please remember that next week will be filled with even more excitement for our students so even greater awareness to safety must be given. It takes the village to raise a child! Midway is the BEST village ever!


Please mark you calendars to join us for the Sing-a-Long on Thursday, December 14, at 6:30 p.m. Mustangs of all ages enjoy this event! Our Chorus, Strings, and Band students shine with talent and growth in musical skills.


Please continue to ask your child to check lost and found for jackets, lunch boxes, etc. If you will please put your child's name on these items we do check to get them returned to owners. Thank you for your help with this!


Have a wonderful weekend! Please stay dry and safe as the weather is to be a bit testy which means its a great time to snuggle up and read great books with our sweet children.


Yours truly,


Jan Fickling, Principal of Midway Elementary

Park and Peksenar Lex. Museum Field Trip

Learning was brought to life at the Lexington County Museum when the classes of Mrs. Park and Madame Peksenar experienced the life of the Eastern Woodland Native Americans firsthand. They played games, made music with traditional instruments, felt real furs, and made pinch pots to help them experience the culture.
