Running the Mile
Coach Michael Tomas got the elementary students off to an early start this year with the much-loved "mile run". Well ok, maybe we exaggerate slightly, but this particular PE event HAS been part of the Midland scene for many years.Here are a couple of pic from the 7th & 8th graders on the move. Note that effort levels may vary from runner to runner - apparently our students are not all that different from the rest of us!
Get Your Chieftains Here!
Do you love fresh apples, apple cider, apple pie, apple dumplings, apple strudel, and all-things-apple? If so, the Senior class of 2016 is selling apples this fall. These apples are orchard fresh and will be picked and delivered to us within days of picking. They are coming from an orchard in Iowa, and have a sweet flavor with a crisp crunch. The Chieftain variety is a cross between Red Delicious and Jonathan varieties.
Apples can be ordered by the bushel or half bushel, and a Firsts or Seconds. (note that a bushel is 42-48 pounds). Order now to get your apples for applesauce, pie making and eating for this fall. So why Chieftans?
- Chieftains store well without getting mushy quickly
- Great for making applesauce because they are sweet
- Great eating apples as well as for pie
For more information and pricing, check out our Apples page (which also includes an order form - hint, hint!)
Tour de Shawnee
The 26th Tour de Shawnee bike tour took place last Sunday (August 30) and for the fourth consecutive year, Midland hosted the first rest stop on the route. Thanks to the Martins, Johnsons, Fairchilds, and Mr. Bovee for serving as volunteers to help staff the rest stop; set up snack tables, fill water cups, and cheer on the riders (and gaining community service hours in the bargain).
This year's ride was a benefit for the JDRF (formerly the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation), and 250-300 of the more than 500 riders stopped at Midland during their ride.
If you'd like to check out some pictures from the ride, here's a gallery for your review.
Music director Steven Hutchison is pleased to present this year's edition of Diversity, Midland's select choir. The team will consist of 10 high school students, who will have the priviledge of an extensive concert schedule during the year, not to mention meeting for rehearsal at 7:30am three mornings a week! (Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday)
He says, "I am thrilled to have the group we do this year and I'm looking forward to lots of great music making and ministry. I believe their motivation for giving 100% will not be the grade they receive, but the hearts they will touch through music. "
