Dear Mustangs,

It is with a truly grateful heart and pride in our school and country that I share my appreciation to all for your presence and participation in our Veterans Day Parade and Program on Monday. Many thanks to Captain Hudson for sharing his thoughts and inspirations with us! I am truly blessed and thankful to be a member of our Midway Family!! Many thanks to our Veterans, Active Duty Military Personnel, and First Responders! Through your service and the support of your families we have many freedoms and rights unknown by other countries and cultures. Thank YOU!

Mustang Fest was a huge success filled with fun, food, and great fellowship! I had a large time with our children!! Thank you to our River Bluff High School student volunteers, parents, faculty and staff, and PTO for making this an awesome event! Together, we shine in what we do!!

Thank you all for your wonderful support of our students and school! You are the BEST!

Yours truly,

Jan Fickling

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.


Thank You RBHS French 5 Honor Students....
