Earlier this year, Mr. Hutchison has his poetry club write some poems based on a specific painting. He says, "Poetry club has been meeting every Friday after school since the beginning of the school year. I figured it would be good timing to publish these poems with it being National Poetry Writing Month (NaPoWriMo)."
"These are all ekphrastic poems, which means they are inspired by or in reaction to another form of art. For these poems, the poets all used the same painting from Google Cultural Institute online. The painting is by Japanese artist and illustrator Chihiro Iwasaki, and is titled 'The Girl Writing a Letter by the Sea at Sunset.'"

Midland's 7th & 8th graders drove to Independence, MO on Tuesday to see the Harry Truman Museum. This is also the site where Truman, his wife, and daughter are buried.
Teacher Greg Hallock says, "We got to see a replica of the Oval Office that was set up the way Truman had it while he has in office. We saw numerous artifacts and displays in the museum, including the sign from his presidental desk with his famous quote "The Buck Stops Here", newspapers from his election, an old car of his, love letters he'd written his to his wife, and many other items from his life as a soldier, senator, businessman, Vice President, and President of The United States."
The students also got to see his office at the presidential library, where many famous people such as presidents and movie stars would come to visit Truman.
Mr. Hutchison and Diversity, Midland's select choir, took a tour of Iowa and Nebraska this past weekend. They presented concerts at a nursing home in Iowa as well as several churches in both Iowa and Nebraska before heading home on Sunday afternoon. They also enjoyed the Omaha Zoo and a youth night at Omaha Memorial Church.
