The 8th grade class is gearing up for the second annual Christmas sale fundraiser. The Christmas store will be open after school on Dec. 5th, 6th, 12th, and 13th. The Christmas store creates an opportunity for students to “secretly” purchase gifts for their family.
To help make this fundraiser a success, the 8th grade class is in need of donations. They are in need of new and gently used items such as picture frames, knickknacks, devotionals, Christmas décor, stuffed animals, lotions, candles, etc. The following additional items are also needed: wrapping paper, tissue paper, gift bags, candy canes, hot chocolate and Christmas candy.
This is a perfect opportunity to clear out that extra clutter and help the 8th grade class. Donations can be dropped off in Mr. Hallock’s classroom before or after school. If you have any questions, please contact Mrs. Courtad at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks in advance for your support.
Midland's Student Association team has announced plans for this year's Christmas Banquet, scheduled for December 7. Plans include a trip to Johnny Cascone's for supper, then down to Union Station to watch the presentation of Solstice. For times and locations, check the entry on our school calendar.
Union Station describes Solstice as a chance to watch "live acapella choir, dancers, and aerialists come together to perform a holiday show the whole family will love!" (As tickets and reservations have been purchased, SA will be unable to accept additional guests)
At its November 25, 2013 meeting, Midland’s operating board voted a change to our financial policy as described in the 2013-2014 version of our School Handbook.
The current policy on p. 53 under Ten-Month Payment Plan reads in part:
Midland uses a ten-month payment plan. The first of the ten billings is due at registration in August. A monthly statement outlining tuition charges, credits, miscellaneous charges, and payments will be sent to each family by the 1st of each month. It is imperative that all student accounts be paid by the 10th of the month. The school depends upon receiving prompt payment of its tuition accounts to meet its monthly financial obligations. Since the school cannot give extended credit, it may be necessary for some to obtain financial assistance elsewhere.
The operating board voted to apply a $20 late fee to student accounts not paid by the 10th of the month; effective 2nd semester of the 2013-2014 school year.
Here is a chance to support a worthy student at Midland AND give to Midland’s Home & School project of renovating the bathrooms—BOTH without spending any more money than you already are!
What do you do? Go to www.shopwithscrip.com and create an account using Midland’s unique code, “4CF31AB936798”. If you prefer not to order online, you can pick up an order form in the office (listing the most common retailers), fill it out, and return it to the office.
Scrip fundraising is a no-selling program that allows families to raise money for their non-profit organization—Midland Adventist Academy. Scrip is just another way to pay for everyday purchases using gift cards in place of cash, checks, and credit cards. You purchase gift cards from Midland at face value, and our coordinator, Christina Svoboda, orders those cards from Great Lakes Scrip Center at a reduced price. The difference is an instant rebate for Midland.
We will credit ½ of the rebate to a student of your choice and apply the other ½ of the rebate to the Home & School project. It is that simple. Will you help us? The next order deadline is December 8, with a card pickup date of December 13.
Pastor Roberto Correa shares, “Last Sabbath at my New Haven Hispanic Church, the children conducted the whole worship service. It was very special moment for us because our oldest son, Gabriel, preached for the very first time. The church was packed and happy to see the children involved,” says Pastor Roberto.
This is Gabe's fifth year at Midland, and his current teacher, Dan Perry, was able to be at the service. Certainly another example of training hands for Jesus. (thanks to the Cutting Edge for the story)
