Elementary

There is also something of interest going on in our Elementary wing, where we have five separate classrooms ranging from Kindergarten to 8th grade. Lots of fun, lots of learning...keep updated right here.


We the People

Two teams from Midland's 7th and 8th class competed in the We the People state competition at Kansas State University on Friday, April 8. The teams presented a four minute essay based on questions about the U.S. Constitution to a panel of judges. The judges then had ten minutes to ask follow-up questions that the teams had not heard until the day of the competition. Six other schools from Kansas also competed in the competition.

Julia Rockufeler, Camron Miranda, Kayleigh Elsey, Owen Cowan, and Kiki Kilanko presented their essay and answered questions about free speech rights in the first amendment. Melanie Wilde, Kaitlyn Skinner, Addie Rincon, and Maecy Keller presented their essay and answered questions about the role of political parties in the U.S. Kiki, Addie, and Maecy were unable to attend the state competition, but did compete in an earlier competition held at Midland.

The competitions are the culmination of a sixteen week process of study, research, writing, editing, and presenting. Congratulations to both teams!


Turning Into Readers

Mrs. Prosser says that all of her 1st graders are turning into readers - here's some proof!


Eww, Mealworms in 1st and 2nd!

September 2018 - Our 1st and 2nd graders are so excited about their “baby” meal worms that some of our students have even given names to their particular "pet"! Mrs. Prosser says that "We are studying about the life cycle which includes metamorphosis." Stay tuned...more to follow and they grow and transform.   


6th Grade Environmental Camp

September 2018 - Midland's sixth graders recently enjoyed several days at Broken Arrow Ranch for Environmental Camp. This annual event allows our students to spend time outdoors with other sixth grade students and teachers from across the Kansas/Nebraska Conference.

Their days were spent in classes with teachers from the various conference schools learning about the world outdoors, swimming, playing basketball, and much more. In past years, the students have also learned about orienteering, knot tying, and first aid.

Thank you to the Pastor Tim Floyd and the staff from Broken Arrow for making this event possible!
