Get Your Chieftains Here!
The Senior class of 2017 is selling apples this fall. These apples are orchard fresh and will be picked and delivered to us within days of picking. They are coming from an orchard in Iowa, and have a sweet flavor with a crisp crunch. The Chieftain variety is a cross between Red Delicious and Jonathan varieties.
Apples can be ordered by the bushel or half bushel, and in First or Second grade. (note that a bushel is 42-48 pounds). Order now to get your apples for applesauce, pie making and eating for this fall!
- Chieftains store well without getting mushy quickly
- Great for making applesauce because they are sweet
- Great eating apples as well as for pie
For more information and pricing, check out our dedicated page (which also includes an order form - hint, hint!) Due to a late freeze there are fewer apples this year. Order early while supplies last!
College Preview Days
Ten members of the Senior Class of 2017 headed off to Union College last week for College Preview Days. This gave our students the chance to experience being a Union student for a full weekend, and it was FREE besides! They had opportunities to meet other possible freshmen, sit in a college class or two, tour the bustling town of Lincoln, NE, and take part in typical weekend activities.
After an initial event on Thursday afternoon, the students received a college tour, a presentation on financial aid (always a good thing when figuring out how to pay for college), and then a check-in at the dorms with their college hosts.
Thanks to Union for giving our seniors a taste of what higher education is all about!
5th Grade Field Trip
While our sixth grade students enjoyed Environmental Camp, the "other half" of Mr. Perry's classroom took the opportunity to have a field trip to the Darrell's farm. The kids had a fantastic afternoon, eating lunch, playing games and enjoying fishing and row boating.
Mr. Darrell said afterward, "I think the kids had a great time. Thank you for sending them out. I forgot all about taking pictures until later so we only have a few. No one wanted to really leave the boats!"
Thanks to our parents for providing the opportunity for such a great afternoon enjoying nature, God's other book.
6th Grade Environmental Camp
Midland's sixth graders recently enjoyed several days at Broken Arrow Ranch for Environmental Camp. This annual event allows our students to spend time outdoors with other sixth grade students and teachers from across the Kansas/Nebraska Conference.
Their days were spent in classes with teachers from the various conference schools learning about the world outdoors, swimming, playing basketball, and much more. In past years, the students have also learned about orienteering, knot tying, and first aid.
Thank you to the Pastor Tim Floyd and the staff from Broken Arrow for making this event possible!
(Note: the picture is from when the current Class of 2018 attended Environmental Camp five years ago!)
