Annual Week of Health

Week of Health (Spring 2015)

Midland's annual Week of Health finished in fine fashion. We'd like to send a big THANK YOU to Janet O’Rear for coordinating another amazing week! Activities during the week included a poster contest, JUMP Rope for Heart, a Dodgeball tournament, and the chance to win a pizza party or be principal for a day! Those participating in the poster contest receive a discount on admission for a February 16 swimming party.

We hope your child enjoyed learning about good health habits, and many thanks to our Home and School for sponsoring the event. For a schedule of events, check the calendar entry, or for more details, click here.
