At last our big event is here! Yes, the best fun in town is right here at our Wild West Mustang Fest!!! Gates open at 5:00 p.m. and close at 8:00 p.m. Even the cold can't stop this fun. Do bring family and friends!!
Good luck to our runners in the Run Hard 5K on Saturday! These young people always make us so proud. Many thanks to our PE Teacher, Anna Owens, and the volunteers for sponsoring this opportunity for our students.
Monday, November 11, is a very special day as we celebrate Veterans Day in our parade and program. The parade will start at 8:00 a.m. We invite all veterans, active duty military people, and first responders as want to show our appreciation for keeping us safe and protecting our many freedoms. Thank you, Veterans, Military People and First Responders!!!
Just a quick safety reminder that the far left drive when facing the school is a two-lane exit. We have recently experienced cars coming in the exit and this is not safe. Please help us by following the traffic patterns and enter either the bus loop entrance or the center main entrance drive. Thank you so much for your help with this.
Again, hope to see you this evening at Mustang Fest!!

MES School Counseling
The Midway School Counselors are seeking mentors to serve some of our students. A Midway Mentor serves as a special friend to one student throughout the year. They meet with this student once to twice a week for about 30 minutes. Midway Mentors serve as a special friend or support person to help some of our students who need additional love and encouragement. If you are interested in obtaining additional information please get in touch with Chan Gray or one of our other school counselors.
Our Midway Winter Merchandise Sale will be closing on Friday November 8th!! The long sleeve shirts and hoodies will make great holiday gifts!
