Updates from Mrs. Breeding

We are off to a successful start to our second quarter of school. Thank you for attending our parent teacher conferences! It is important for us all to work together in order for all of our students to grow. Please continue to stay in touch with your child's teacher about your concerns or any changes going on at home.

There are many online sites that you can access to help your student with math or literacy at home. You can find these sites on the Midland website. Go to the Library Media page and search for the resources under the student resources tab. If your child is having trouble logging in, please do not hesitate to contact their teacher.

If you haven't already, please 'like' us on Facebook (Midland International Elementary) and follow us on Twitter (@midlimustangs).

International Baccalaureate Primary Years Program

The aim of all IB programs is to develop internationally minded people who, recognizing their common humanity and shared guardianship of the planet, help to create a better and more peaceful world. We work to accomplish this by striving to embody the IB Learner Profile. The attributes of the Learner Profile are Inquirers, Knowledgeable, Thinkers, Communicators, Principled, Open-Minded, Caring, Risk-Takers, Balanced, and Reflective.

Staff Spotlight-Chad Hartinger, PE Teacher

My name is Chad Hartinger and this is my second year as the PE Teacher at Midland. I met my wife, Katie in college, while attending Colorado State University. GO RAMS! We have a 4 month old daughter, Myra. When I am not at Midland or coaching football at Manitou High School, you can find me watching football, playing golf or staring at my fancy baby. I am happy to be here at Midland because of the students and our awesome principal, Jenny!

Attendance Matters!

Good attendance contributes to students doing well in school and eventually in the workplace. The early school years are essential for laying a foundation for strong attendance and academic success in future years. By middle and high school, poor attendance is even more predictive of dropout. Each absence represents a preventable lost opportunity to learn in the classroom. We can’t afford to think of absenteeism as merely a lack of compliance with school rules.

Please remember to have your child to school no later than 7:55 each day! Please attempt to schedule appointments outside of school hours. Thank you for your help!
