The Music Department is launching it’s newest and most exciting fundraiser yet - Spirit apparel! The Music for Midland apparel line includes hoodies, 3/4 sleeve baseball T’s and t-shirts all in both youth and adult sizes. The school song was the inspiration for this year's design. Our hoodie option can even be personalized with a name, athletic number, class year and more.
Purchased items will be available for pickup at MAA or we can ship anywhere in the U.S. These make great gifts and all purchases will arrive in time for Christmas. It’s a great way to support the Music Department Renovation Project and show off your school pride. Check us out and order yours today right here. All orders are due November 30.
Midland at Acrofest
Our AcroClub has been visiting Washington Adventist University outside of Washington DC," reports Pastor Anthony Whitlow. "Joining about 25 other gymnastic teams totaling over 800 participants and clinicians, Midland's AcroClub has been learning all sorts of team and individual moves to learn and put in our own routines. If you would like to learn more about this year’s AcroFest program, you can view that by clicking here. Be sure to cheer for both our Midland and Union College teams!" says Pastor Anthony. In addition, Heidi Burke received the Heather Boulais Courage Award! (t"hanks to the Cutting Edge for this information and pics)
What’s Happening In 7th and 8th Grade
This year our 7th and 8th graders are contributing regular writeups for the website about what's going on in their classroom. Here's one for starters by Kassidy Hinds:
On November 8-13, the Midland AcroClub is going to Washington, D.C. for Acrofest! The team is very excited! Our routine is amazing and super fun. It is extra special for me because it is my first time going to Washington, D.C.! This is also my first year in gymnastics. I’m eager to go, but also quite nervous. The first move in our routine I am being tossed in the air onto Lily’s back with the help of Callie and Courtney on the sides doing elevators! While I’m up there I have to be very tight and try not to move so I don’t fall. Then, when it is time, I fall off the back and trust that Mr. Borne and Pastor Anthony will catch me.
We will be doing Acrofest routines, workouts and other fun activities Thursday and Friday. On Saturday night we will do what we all been waiting for, performing! And since Washington is a long way to travel, they will be live streaming it on TV so anyone can watch it! So don’t miss it! Then on Sunday we are going to tour all of Washington, D.C. and see some amazing monuments and museums. Finally, on Monday morning we are going to have a U.S. Capitol tour! And then when we are done with our tour we are going to head back home. I already know that I am going to have a great time! And it is a great way to get to know my team better.

Trash Bag Sales
High quality trash bags are available now! These trash bags are such high quality, they sell themselves. Buyers become repeat customers! Please order from your favorite Midland student (or the Home & School at 913-909-3606) before the November 13 deadline. Checks can be made payable to Midland Adventist Academy, and money should be collected when your order is taken.
Bags are $11 a roll, and come in three different sizes:
- Blue 55 gallon (super size, 16 bags/roll)
- Yellow 39 gallon (25 bags/roll)
- White 15 gallon (tall kitchen, 65 bags/roll)
Please note that one case of bags (10 rolls) weighs approximately 50 lbs. Your order will need to be picked up at school, as the rolls of bags are too heavy to send home with your child. Let’s all get behind this effort! Buy your bag supply from us and offer them to relatives, friends, and neighbors. All profits go to the Midland Home & School, which works to make a positive difference for our students.
Music Department Challenge Grant
Weʼre excited to announce a new project that we plant to raise funds for and complete before the 2018-2019 school year. The music department is in need of itʻs own designated space for music education that will not compete with after-school sports activites. Our planned renovation will turn the existing library room into just that dream. The space will include practice rooms, a creative lab, and storage.
The cost is roughly $100K, and we have received a generous $50K matching grant from Adventist Health System. Weʼll soon begin raising the remaining funds. To find out how you can help support the fundraising drive or if you have a creative idea to lend, please contact Mr. Hutchison via email or by phone at 913-268-7400.
