Host a Foreign Student!

A+ Education Leaving one's family to fly around the world and study in a foreign land and a second language is an intense and life-changing experience for a young person.  Families that open their homes and hearts to host one of these adventurers have a unique opportunity to make an impact on a young life.

  Midland looks forward to benefiting by its new relationship with an organization called A+ Global Education, Inc..Led by a team of dedicated, Christian leaders, A+ has agreed to recruit foreign students for Midland. Students will arrive the end of December 2016.

 Midland needs your help! In addition to arranging academic placement, A+ also recruits local families to host these students and provides full-time, local support to the host family and the foreign student along with a monthly stipend to cover expenses associated with hosting. Hosting can be an incredibly rewarding experience for a family.  If your family has an interest in hosting a foreign student on a full-time or part-time basis, please contact Mary Frishman, our A+ representative:

 ==> Mary Frishman @ 913-620-1946 or email her here

  Note:  Host families contract directly with A+ Global Education, Inc. and not with Midland Adventist Academy.

Are Writers Born or Made?

Writing papersMrs. Prosser's 2nd grade class has recently been working on a Writer's Workshop where they practice good handwriting and good thinking while coming ujp with ideas about our Heavenly Father. Mrs. Prosser asked them to write down a variety of ideas on how "God shows His love to me."

Here are some of the great ideas her students came up (you can see more of them in her class photo gallery):

  • Giving me a big sister
  • you made a world just for us
  • you made schools all over the world
  • by giving me dogs
  • you let me be in a Jesus School
  • making me a good speller
  • letting me have parents

And probably our favorite answers is this one: Giving me Mrs. Prosser!

Parent/Teacher Conferences

PT ConferenceHave you signed up for Parent/Teacher conference yet? Midland is dedicating the entire day on Thursday, October 27 to spend time with parents and students to discuss just how school is going for you this year. We would love to have you sign up for a slot, then stop by and say hi!

Numerous studies have shown that when a parent is actively involved with their child's education, it benefits all involved; parents, students, and teachers alike.  When parents and teachers communicate effectively, student learning increases. So be sure and take this opportunity to get to know your Midland teachers better. We'll be glad you did!

The Principal Says...

LawnmowerThe elegant engagement of physical activity on the soccer "pitch", volleyball court, or the runner's pace reminds me of the beauty that God designed into the human form. And in these brief moments, it is as if we have shed the burden of expectations of gender, race, and creed and are sore-free if just for an instant.

We call it sports, competition, or just a game. And yet, it seems to be a place of unique growth and transformation where girls learn lessons of womanhood and boys of manhood. This week I witnessed the Senior nights of our Woman's Varsity Volleyball team and of our Men's Varsity Soccer team. I am proud of the sportsmanship, leadership, and discipleship that I see in each of our players. - Principal Dan Kittle
