Time to Register for the ACT
As a senior, one of the most important things you can do to prepare for college is completing the ACT. But what if you already took it as a junior? You may indeed wonder, "Why on earth would I want to take it AGAIN?!" Well, it's simple.
Studies have shown that more than 55% of students taking a second ACT exam improve their composite score. With more and more colleges using ACT numbers to determine student scholarships (including Union), an investment of $30-40 now can reap big benefits in the future. If you're a Junior, you may want to test-drive the ACT this year to highlight areas for additional study between now and next year's testing.
Midland will offer the ACT three times this school year; the registration deadline for the first test is September 19. Consider a worthwhile investment in your college days to come, and "take two!"
Let's Move Day 5K
Sunday, September 21 is the 4th annual Let's Move Day, a day set aside by the North American Division to get as many people possible involved in some type of physical activity on that day. In response, Midland will be celebrating with a Let's Move Day 5K run. It is free of charge and everyone is invited... church, school, family, neighbors, and friends. The run will start from Midland at 8:30am. So go ahead, get a move on and improve your health!
Fundraisers. LOTS of Fundraisers!
Never let it be said that Midland didn't provide enough fundraisers so that at least one of them should attract your interest! Plastic bags, car washes, Chieftan apples, boxtops for Education, you name it. To make it easier on your eyes, here's a link to our fundraiser page. Take a look, and give to our heart's content.
God In Shoes
Friday morning 47 Midland Adventist Academy high school students and teachers joined Sue Carlson, and Pastors Chanda Nunez and Rayshaun Williams at the Central States Conference Center to prepare for God in Shoes--Kansas City.
Principal Randy Bovee says, “the students assembled 500 Family Fun Day Tote Bags and 500 Ladies' Spa Day Tote Bags, organized 500 pairs of shoes into large black garbage bags according to size, and placed tags in the books and Bibles that will be handed out throughout the God in Shoes events. While working quickly and efficiently, the students added prayers for God's blessing on the items that they were preparing to go out into the community."
Midland believes in community service. Yes, yes we do. (thanks to The Cutting Edge for the story and pics)
New Staff at Midland
The Midland Operating Board Executive Committee re-visited the situation in our K-2 classrooms. Since making the plans for a K-1 and a 1-2 classroom approach, we have added more kindergarten and first grade students. As a result, we have hired Mrs. Keely Rincon to take second grade for 2.5 hours each afternoon. This will give Mrs. Murphy a block of alone time with the kindergarten students and Mrs. Prosser a block of alone time with the large first grade class.
Mrs. Rincon, a certificated teacher and former Midland student, began working with the second graders this week. Her addition to our team will make a positive impact on the education of our K-2 students. Please make Keely feel welcome!
Sport Fees and Volunteering
If you are a parent of an athlete at Midland, please remember to sign the MAA Athletic Department contract, pay the sport fees, and register for volunteering. For those parents choosing to volunteer, the fees are $25 for high school and $15 for middle school per athlete. If you would rather not sign up to volunteer, you will be asked to pay the full amount of $200 per high school athlete and $150 per middle school athlete.
Mrs. Fairchild keeps the volunteer sign up book at her desk in the main office. See you at the games!
Women's Bible Study
Join other moms at a weekly Bible study at MAA. We study, talk, and share with each other. All moms are welcome (even if you don’t have a student at MAA). We meet Wednesdays at 2:00 p.m. in the MAA chapel, and our first meeting will be September 24. Workbooks for this Beth Moore study on James are $20. Tracy Kreiter happily provides child care.
This is an MAA Home & School event--call Christina Svoboda at (913) 909-3606 with questions and to reserve a workbook. Open to everyone, so bring your friends!
