Three Midland students were recognized Monday evening as Kansas Honors Students. Sara Pope, Megan Schlinsog and Garret Whitson received academic awards from the alumni association of The University of Kansas, along with students from 11 other Johnson County schools. Recognized for being the top 10% of students in their schools, they were part of a group of less than 250 Johnson County students to receive this honor. Earlier this year, Megan was also named as a Commended Scholar by the National Merit organization, based on her test scores from the PSAT.

Basketball Season on the Horizon
The Midland Mustangs are getting ready to play basketball once again, with the start of the 2014-2015 season only two weeks away. This year Midland will be fielding four teams: Boys Varsity, Boys JV, Boys MS, and Girls MS.
Boys Varsity will start the festivities with a road game against Alta Vista on December 2nd, and will end the season at the annual Union College Tournament. Check out our Athletics tab for links to all of the team home pages, schedules and results. It's hoops time!
8th Annual Thanksgiving Hot Lunch
The Senior class of 2015 will be serving a special Thanksgiving lunch on Monday, November 24. Parents, grandparents, and friends are invited to join the students for this special event prepared by Mrs. Fairchild. The plated dinner will include vegetarian turkey & dressing casserole, mashed potatoes & gravy, green beans, corn, dinner roll, pumpkin pie, and a drink.
More than 240 guests attended last year, the largest total so far. So how much food does it take to feed that many people? Well... glad you asked. How about 100 pounds of potatoes, 15 pounds of stuffing breadcrumbs, 155 pounds of corn and green beans, five dozen eggs, 40 stalks of celery, 12 pounds of vegetarian turkey, 36 dozen dinner rolls, and 21 pumpkin pies?
All reservations must be made by Friday, November 14. Remember: $6.00 per person (including students)—cash or check only.
One of the major issues is the loss of the dropdowns under the menu items. For example, you can no longer find Home & School under the community tab. Until we get this fixed, here are several links for commonly used items from the menu flyouts. If you have any suggestions for the website, please let us know. (10/6)

Fundraisers. LOTS of Fundraisers!
Never let it be said that Midland didn't provide enough fundraisers so that at least one of them should attract your interest! Plastic bags, car washes, Chieftan apples, boxtops for Education, you name it. To make it easier on your eyes, here's a link to our fundraiser page.
Take a look, and give to our heart's content. (10/1)
