Winter Coats Barrel

storytime logoThanks to coat drives in schools last spring, thousands of children from low-income Johnson County families had coats to protect them in this year’s brutal winter. At the Johnson County Christmas Bureau (JCCB), "we’ve started preparing for our next winter when many in those families will need replacement coats and jackets. We need all sizes, infants through adults. Our goal is that anyone who needs a winter coat gets one."

Midland has a brightly decorated JCCB collection barrel at the school, and has already collected a variety of coats this month. Bring your extra coats, and help the JCCB get off to an early start.

Summer Math Program

Research shows that summer learning loss in Math is an issue that impacts all students, with students losing an average of 2-3 months of their math comprehension every summer. TenMarks, an Amazon company, is on a mission to reverse summer learning loss in math, and prove that a personalized online program helps improve math outcomes. For Summer 2014, TenMarks is offering its powerful 3-month summer program for $0 cost to Midland families (previously $39.95 per student).

Starting now, parents can register online for the summer program in minutes, with no support needed from Midland. It’s super easy! Phone and online support is available to families throughout the program.


Nursing Home Sunshine

“Judy Prosser and Midland's 1st & 2nd graders were a shining light for Jesus at Heartland Assisted Living Thursday morning,” shares Principal Randy Bovee. “They sang for about 20 minutes and then gave each grandma and grandpa a special handwritten memory verse sheet. It is never too early to teach minds, touch hearts, and train hands for Jesus,” says Randy. (more pictures here and thanks to the Cutting Edge for the story)
