8th Annual Thanksgiving Hot Lunch

The Senior class of 2015 presided over a Midland Thanksgiving Hot Lunch on Monday. Parents, grandparents, and friends joined the students for the special event prepared by Mrs. Fairchild. The plated dinner included vegetarian turkey & dressing casserole, mashed potatoes & gravy, green beans, corn, dinner roll, pumpkin pie, and a drink.

Over 200 folks attended the festivities and enjoyed both the food and the program presented by the elementary students. So how much food does it take to feed that many people? Well... glad you asked. How about 105 pounds of potatoes, 15-20 pounds of stuffing breadcrumbs, 120 pounds of corn and green beans, dozens and dozens of eggs, 40 stalks of celery (all hand-chopped!), 10-15 pounds of vegetarian turkey, 24 dozen dinner rolls, and 21 pumpkin pies?


KC Youth Rally

Midland hosted the annual KC Youth Rally this past weekend, with guest speaker Jonathan Leonardo. “Our Kansas City Youth Rally this past weekend was a tremendous blessing to me,” says Pastor Tim Floyd. “The music by No Trace of Earth set the worship atmosphere for our speaker Jonathan Leonardo to present some deep theological concepts in such a way that our young people were able to learn and grow. I came away from the weekend blessed, refreshed and challenged to build Christ's kingdom in the areas I have an influence.” (thanks to the Cutting Edge for the story and pics).

Honor Recognition

Three Midland students were recognized this month as Kansas Honors Students. Sara Pope, Megan Schlinsog and Garret Whitson received academic awards from the alumni association of The University of Kansas, along with students from 11 other Johnson County schools. Recognized for being the top 10% of students in their schools, they were part of a group of less than 250 Johnson County students to receive this honor. Earlier this year, Megan was also named as a Commended Scholar by the National Merit organization, based on her test scores from the PSAT.


Community Service Day

Midland students, grades 7-12, and their teachers will be engaged in reaching out to impact the school facility and the community Tuesday morning, November 24. Midland projects will include shoveling gravel back into the elementary playground and spreading it out, completing the outdoor worship area behind the school, sanitizing areas doorknobs, desks, and washing walls. Other projects will include raking leaves for the elderly, helping out at a local child care center, and working in a food pantry.

Iowa Assessment Results

The Iowa Assessment results are here and will be available to pick up in the front office beginning Tuesday morning, November 25. Please let us know if you would prefer to have us send the test results home with your son/daughter.

Do not hesitate to make an appointment with a teacher to go over the results if you have any questions.

Basketball Season on the Horizon

The Midland Mustangs are getting ready to play basketball once again, with the start of the 2014-2015 season only two weeks away. This year Midland will be fielding four teams: Boys Varsity, Boys JV, Boys MS, and Girls MS.

Boys Varsity will start the festivities with a road game against Alta Vista on December 2nd, and will end the season at the annual Union College Tournament. Check out our Athletics tab for links to all of the team home pages, schedules and results. It's hoops time!


Website Update

No phones

As you can tell, our website has gone through an upgrade this weekend. We hope you like the new design, and that you can still find what you're looking for! As with any update, there are still several items not working correctly, but we'll get those fixed pronto.

One of the major issues is the loss of the dropdowns under the menu items. For example, you can no longer find Home & School under the community tab. Until we get this fixed, here are several links for commonly used items from the menu flyouts. If you have any suggestions for the website, please let us know. (10/6)
