The 8th grade class is halfway through their second annual Christmas sale fundraiser. The Christmas store opened for business after school on Dec. 5 and 6, and will be open again on the 12th and 13th. The Christmas store creates an opportunity for students to “secretly” purchase gifts for their family.
To help make this fundraiser a success, the 8th grade class is in need of donations. They are in need of new and gently used items such as picture frames, knickknacks, devotionals, Christmas décor, stuffed animals, lotions, candles, etc. The following additional items are also needed: wrapping paper, tissue paper, gift bags, candy canes, hot chocolate and Christmas candy.
This is a perfect opportunity to clear out that extra clutter and help the 8th grade class. Donations can be dropped off in Mr. Hallock’s classroom before or after school. If you have any questions, please contact Mrs. Courtad via email.Thanks in advance for your support.
Mr. Steven Hutchison has made arrangements for grades 9-12 and our high school teachers to attend a production of the Nutcracker performed by the Kansas City Ballet at the Kauffman Center for Performing Arts this Friday, December 13, 2013. The performance will take place from 10:30 am to approximately 12:30 pm.
Dress code is business casual. Guys should wear dress slacks and a button shirt or turtleneck. Girls should wear dress slacks and a nice blouse or sweater. We plan to leave Midland by 9:15 am and return to the school by 1:15 pm. Transportation will be provided by bus. The sponsors for this outing include our high school teaching staff. The price of admission is covered by the school.
Please sign this permission slip and return with your son/daughter by Wednesday, December 11.
Midland's fearless leader (Principal Randy Bovee) turned 50 last Thursday. His wife, Carol, surprised him with a cake during staff meeting and teased him about being half a century old. "We're thrilled that Randy is part of the team here at Midland and we wish him many more happy birthdays,” says Judy Prosser. (thanks to the Cutting Edge for the story)
Midland's Student Association team took place on the evening of December 7. Plans included a trip to Johnny Cascone's for supper, then down to Union Station to watch the presentation of Solstice. For times and locations, check the entry on our school calendar.
Union Station describes Solstice as a chance to watch "live acapella choir, dancers, and aerialists come together to perform a holiday show the whole family will love!" The program ended in a surprise proposal for one of the performers (and yes, she accepted <g>) For pictures, check our photo page.
At its November 25, 2013 meeting, Midland’s operating board voted a change to our financial policy as described in the 2013-2014 version of our School Handbook.
The current policy on p. 53 under Ten-Month Payment Plan reads in part:
Midland uses a ten-month payment plan. The first of the ten billings is due at registration in August. A monthly statement outlining tuition charges, credits, miscellaneous charges, and payments will be sent to each family by the 1st of each month. It is imperative that all student accounts be paid by the 10th of the month. The school depends upon receiving prompt payment of its tuition accounts to meet its monthly financial obligations. Since the school cannot give extended credit, it may be necessary for some to obtain financial assistance elsewhere.
The operating board voted to apply a $20 late fee to student accounts not paid by the 10th of the month; effective 2nd semester of the 2013-2014 school year.
