CSC Student Wins the Challenge
Former Midland student Tyler McKinney, now a senior at Pine Forge Academy, was recently awarded $11,000 in scholarships by the Better School, Better World Challenge. BSEA challenged students at Pine Forge to create a 90-second video to explain how they are going to build a better world.
The community was asked to vote for their favorite videos, and the student with the most votes would win the challenge, up to one year of paid tuition and expenses at PSA.
Tyler, a member of Central State’s Linwood Church in Kansas City, MO, won the contest with several thousand votes. (thanks to Outlook magazine and Brittany Winkfield for the information in this story; you can read the full article here on page 18, or watch Tyler's video.) Congrats for a job well done!
A Visit From the Doctor
Our third and fourth graders recently enjoyed a presentation from Dr. Rejane Aragon on our immune system. She shared with the students how our immune systems is always in a "battle" to fight various pathogens that enter our bodies, and how we can keep our immune system strong for future “battles”.
She also told us to follow N.E.W. S.T.A.R.T. to stay healthy and to keep our immune system healthy. In case you're wondering what NEW START stands for, here's a quick rundown:

Parent Satisfaction Highest in Private Schools
Private school parents are significantly more satisfied with the schools their children attend than are parents from other sectors, including public charter schools and public district schools. That finding comes from two new studies released by Education Next, a scholarly journal on school reform published by the Hoover Institution at Stanford University and the Harvard Program on Education Policy and Governance at the Harvard Kennedy School.
The first study looked at results from a survey, commissioned by Education Next in May and June of 2016, of a nationally representative sample of 1,571 parents with children in school. The second study analyzed results from a survey of over 17,000 families conducted in 2012 by the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES). The second study’s larger sample size allowed for a deeper dive into population subgroups.
