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.
Mrs. Prosser says that all of her 1st graders are turning into readers - here's some proof!
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.
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!
April 2018 - It has been a crazy month for the 7th and 8th graders. We have enjoyed many informative, fun field trips.
One of the field trips was to the Kauffman Center. There, we learned about protecting the Earth’s oceans. The class was taught by a National Geographic photographer. He shared many beautiful pictures about them, accompanied by stories about his personal experiences with sharks, seals, and coral reefs. We learned about protecting the environment by picking up litter, saving water, and only buying responsibly harvested fish products.
In history, we have been learning about World War I. We enjoyed watching history come alive when we visited the famous World War I Museum.
December 2017 - Each year, the Dictionary Project aims to assist young students in becoming good writers and active readers by providing them with their own personal dictionary. The dictionaries are a gift to each student to use at school and at home for years to come. So far, more than 28 million dictionaries have been provided!
We would like to send a big thanks to the Rotary Club of Lenexa for sponsoring dictionaries for our third graders this year, and for recently delivering them to Midland. We think you are real heroes!
