Thank you! Thank you for sharing your wonderful children with us! This is the time of year that appreciations should be shared. Your children give meaning, purpose, focus, and JOY to our work as educators. Our Midway family is truly a most awesome family filled with love and kindness. Again, thank you for sharing your children and for being a part of the Mustang family!!
Today's Faculty Appreciation Luncheon was AWESOME! Thank you for our wonderful brunch today. You so made our day!! Many thanks to those who were able to prepare or provide items for this delicious meal! Thank you to our PTO for organizing this Appreciation Luncheon!
Holidays bring excitement so I ask that you remain mindful of safety. Please bring your drivers license and ask any adult guest joining you to do the same if coming into the school. Watch carefully as you drop off or pick up students, and remember that this is not the time to be on the cell phone. Any changes in transportation should be made by a written note to your child's teacher. I know these are redundant reminders but one little accident would be disastrous.
As we approach the Thanksgiving Holidays, please take time to enjoy your family and build traditions. I have so many warm memories of my childhood Thanksgiving Holidays. Create memories with your children!
Have a wonderful weekend! Enjoy your children!

Mustang Shout Out!!
Wyatt Padowicz, Abby and Emma Hewitt decided to take donations to help children with cancer. All three were dancing to entertain the neighbors that donated to the cause. They wanted the donations to go towards the children fighting cancer.
