Sophomore Mission Project

SCRIP cardsThe Sophomore class is finishing up a mission project in which they are raising money for ADRA Thailand Keep Girls Safe program. This is an outstanding charity which aims to combat human trafficking in Southeast Asia.

The class's goal is to raise $300. They are attempting this by marketing t-shirts designed by Christopher Hayward. Since we are tight on time, order forms are due this Friday. Please consider giving to this worthy cause. If you are not interested in a t-shirt, then there is an option for giving a donation.

Field Trips Are All the Rage!

SCRIP cardsMr. Hallock's 7th & 8th graders have been having a series of regular field trips over the last month as school draws to an end for the year. Trips included the Kansas capitol in Topeka, the Truman Library in Independence, and a trip to the Kauffman Center for a National Geographic presentation on space.

EducationNext says that schools see field trips "as experiences that are central to their educational mission: schools exist not only to provide economically useful skills in numeracy and literacy, but also to produce civilized young men and women who appreciate the arts and culture."

Daily Prayer for Our Students

Thank you for remembering our school in your daily prayer as well.

Summer Enrichment - JCCC

JCCCJCCC 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

AccreditationMidland 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.

Kansas History

April 1935: A massive front darkened the entire Midwest in clouds of dust on Black Sunday. The Dust Bowl devastated farmers across the plains and they finally changed their farming practices.
