Boosterthon is up and running strong at Midway! Our team, the McLaniacs, is in the lead for first grade! The kids are having a great time learning about character skills and being active. Today we learned that every skill takes practice! Our weekend challenge is to get 2 new donations to earn the Boosterthon Drop & Pop. Log on to and pledge or just register online!

Year-End Celebration

Our end-of-the-year celebration and last day of school is quickly approaching. We will be having outdoor games which classes will rotate through. Afterward we will be enjoying hotdogs on the grill for a picnic lunch (a bit early!) We are still in need of a few volunteers to make our day complete! If you are able to donate your time, please sign up using our Volunteer Spot link below. Even if you can't volunteer, we'd love to have you with us. It's sure to be a blast!
