Graduation week (and weekend) at Midland Adventist Academy is now over, and we've finished up yet another school year. Thanks for helping us celebrate the achievements of our wonderful and talented students! We had 11 kindergarten graduates, 12 from eighth grade, and eight members of the HS senior class. Much laughter, much cheering, and yes, the occasional tear. Congratulations to you all!
And just so you know, we're already looking forward to NEXT year, Midland Adventist Academy is accepting applications for the 2016-2017 school year.

Summer Enrichment - JCCC
JCCC has spent the last two years revamping their summer enrichment camps to focus on middle and high school students exclusively.
The goal has been to expand career and technical education exploration opportunities, and whenever possible, allow the students to access academic resources of the college. This includes a healthcare operating room simulator, brand new culinary kitchens, the Carlsen Center performing arts space, computer/CAD labs, campus farm, music studio, etc.
This summer, courses will be offered during June, July, and August for both half and full days with more than 100 camp options. Subjects will include archeology - art - biotechnology - business skills - computer programming - culinary arts - debate - engineering - horticulture - music - STEM - and much more.
The college is also excited about the many offerings they have put together just for middle school students. Enrollment has already begun and classes are filling up! For more information, here's a link to their catalog of youth classes.
Summer Reading Program
Midland would like to pass along friendly greetings from the Shawnee branch of the Johnson County Library! As the school year winds to a close, JCL is gearing up their annual summer reading program. The theme this year is On Your Mark, Get Set, READ! and it will run May 22 through August 6.
As in years past, there will be an online Summer Reading Club as well as a paper log. Kids can also enjoy fun activities like Read to a Dog, craft sessions, and several hands-on educational programs all summer long. Additionally, the Kansas City Zoomobile will be paying a visit as a well as Music with Mar. And for those of you who may be, um, older than our students, JCL also has an adult Summer Reading Club – be sure and check it out. You might even challenge your student to see who can read the most pages!
The library will be delivering Summer Reading Club posters and bookmarks to Midland in the near future - make sure and pick up some information. Remember - reading a good book is like having a good friend that's always there.
