Get Your Chieftains By October 9!
Do you love fresh apples, apple cider, apple pie, apple dumplings, apple strudel, and all-things-apple? If so, the Senior class of 2016 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 a Firsts or Seconds. (note that a bushel is 42-48 pounds). Order now to get your apples for applesauce, pie making and eating for this fall. So why Chieftans?
- 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 Apples page (which also includes an order form - hint, hint!) The final day to order is Friday, October 9. The apples will be at the school for pick up on Thursday and Friday, October 22 and 23.
Parents Night Out
Would you enjoy a relaxing evening for yourself while your kids are happy playing games, making crafts, and enjoying time friends? On Saturday, Oct. 24, the senior class will cheerfully provide childcare for ages 2 thru 12 years from 6:30 to 9:00 at the MAA gym. Toys, snacks, crafts, and face-painting are all part of the evening’s fun.
This is a fund-raiser for the senior class, as they have a class trip coming up in fewer months than their parents want to think about! (so donations are happily accepted). Please register by Oct. 23 with the school office at 913-268-7400, ext. 1 or send us an email.

We Have a New Hot Lunch Program Chef!
Midland would like to welcome Ms. Rena Saggia as our new chef for the hot lunch program. She will begin her new duties this week on Tuesday, October 6.
She will be replacing Melissa Martin, who is leaving with her family for a new pastoral position in the Minnesota Conference. We thank her for three years of great service in the kitchen!
International Students Coming Our Way
After a thorough review, the Student and Exchange Visitor Program (SEVP) has approved Midland’s petition to accept non-immigrant students into our school program. We can now move forward with our plan to enroll some international students into grades 7-12 in the near future. Area families will have the opportunity to host students for the school year.
In a related area, A+ Global Education is looking for a part-time "home stay" liaison to serve in the Midland community. The successful candidate loves working with young people, is well organized and detail-oriented, and possesses excellent people skills. This person will work with Midland to help place new international students in local homes so that these students can attend our school. In addition to initial placement, this person will serve as a liaison between the home, school, and the student’s home. If you are interest in being considered or would like more information, please contact Mrs. Darlene Fairchild by email or by calling (913) 268-7400.
