Mustangs, we must stop and celebrate our medical professionals and staff!!! They are our frontline in this crisis and we can't thank them enough!!! They are giving hours of service. They are serving our community even when tired and weary. They are the people embracing the sick who are going through this alone. Thank you to our doctors, nurses, medical staff, and all of those involved in taking care of the COVID-19 patients. A HUGE THANK YOU!!


With this said, I say no more as in no way can I minimize or compete with this appreciation which genuinely comes from my heart and the heart of Midway. #mesHEART


Midway continues to be strong as we support each other and our medical families!!!


Have a blessed weekend! Unplug!!


Jan Fickling, Principal of Midway Elementary


Congratulations, Mrs. Aldridge!!!


It is with great sadness but joy that we extend congratulations to Mrs. LaQuana Aldridge! Mrs. Aldridge will be leaving us to join the Saxe Gotha Elementary School family. Earlier in the spring she was accepted into the District's Aspiring Principals Academy. This learning opportunity will be extended and enhanced by experiencing a different school family.


Mrs. Aldridge is a life-long learner so this is exciting for her!!! Yes, she will miss us and likewise we will miss her! This is truly bittersweet as it is our loss but a true adventure in learning for Mrs. Aldridge! However...once a Mustang, always a Mustang! We will be watching her grow and progress in LexOne!! Congratulations!!!

We will miss you Mrs Aldridge!!

MUSIC


1) One of our musical mustangs in Mrs. Locklair's homeroom created his own acapella video! Using his technological skills, he sang multiple parts and layered them into one video. Miss Trent is so proud of this student, and would like to challenge you to create your own acapella video!

For Earth Day this week, Miss Trent created her own musical rainbow! Watch the following video to see how she created her rainbow, and then go on your own scavenger hunt to find the right colors to sing along with her.

Guidance:

Dear Mustang Parents, if ever there may be the need of support from School Counselors it may be now. Please do reach out to us!


We do hope this newsletter finds you and your family doing well! Click on the button tab below for our April newsletter.
