Junior Benefit - Through the Ages

Our Junior Benefit on April 6 was a performance that took you through the pop culture of the 50s-2000s. The audience enjoyed a delicious dinner of meatball subs or grilled cheese, along with chips and a rootbeer float or purple cow while they experienced history in a unique way.

With iconic tv shows, your favorite songs, hilarious comedy, and so much more, everyone was entertained!

Junior Class Has Apples for Sale

Our class is selling apples this fall. The apples come from an orchard in Iowa, so they are picked when ripe and will be here within days of picking. They are of the Chieftain variety (a cross between Red Delicious and Jonathan apples). This makes them sweet and firm without getting “mushy” quickly. They make good applesauce without added sugar, good in pies, and for eating plain.

Make sure and order yours before the October 9, 2013 deadline. When ordering, please include your name, phone number and email address, as well as how many bushels/half-bushels you would like. Email your order to fruit@midlandacademy.org, or call your order in to the school at 913-268-7400 ext. 1 and leave a message.

  • First grade apples (pretty apples with no blemishes on the skin) - $30 per bushel or $15 per half bushel.
  • Second grade apples (may have some blemishes, but taste fine) - $25 per bushel or $12.50 per half bushel.
  • Pick up dates are at the school on October 24 from 3-6pm and October 25 from 8am-1:30pm.
  • Enclose your payment with mail order or with a drop-off order, or you can use check/cash at time of pick-up
Note: A bushel is roughly 42-48 pounds, and there are usually 80-100 apples per bushel
