Home and School (H & S) provides an opportunity for parents to become involved with Midland. The goal is to strengthen the relationship between home and school by organizing and supporting social activities for our families.
H & S is made up of 9 individuals, representing the constituent churches who are familiar with the school and want to get involved. The members of the committee meet the 2nd Monday of every month at 6:30 pm.
To be successful, H & S relies heavily on the involvement of parents. We need every parent to help us make the year a success. Please see this link for opportunities to volunteer.
As Fall is approaching, your Home and School team is busy getting ready for the Fall Festival coming up on Saturday, November 17 and we need your help! We’d like to ask your help in obtaining donations for this year’s Silent Auction. If you or someone you know would be willing to donate an item(s), please contact Heidi Renfro at 913-945-0420 or via email.
Donation ideas include gift cards, volunteering your time to be a onetime handyman or housekeeper, donate your trade (i.e. photography, massage, yoga class, car detail, etc.) or just donate your time to help our Home and School contact local businesses to ask for donations. Lots of ways to help and it will be much appreciated!
Once again, we are offering the familiar blue, yellow, and white trash bags for sale this year. Sales packets were sent home with students on Friday, September 14 and money/orders need to be turned in by Monday, September 24. Bag orders will be ready for pick-up on Wednesday, October 3 at school dismissal time.
A pizza party will be given for the class who sells the most most bags per student!. For more information contact Rhonda Mazlumian via email.
H & S will continue to organize and support a number of school-related events as follows:
Two prayer walks were held at Midland during August 2018 - the first was for Midland's staff, while the second was sponsored by Home & School with an attendance of over 100 parents, students, staff, and friends of Midland.
Kids whose parents are active in school have higher grades and better attendance. How to get involved?
One of the items in the article below suggests "Pick up something extra while at the store". The teachers at Midland were recently polled as to what supplies would be most useful, and here's the Official List. So help a teacher, help the students!
Dry Erase markers
Large Sharpie markers
Good sharp scissors
Playground rubber balls
Bibles (other than NIV)
Empty plastic bottles
(2 liter, 1 liter, 20-oz)
Sport-top water bottles
Ziploc Freezer bags
White Board wipes
Have you ever wondered how you can help at Midland when your free time is limited? Here are a couple of suggestions that our students and faculty would really appreciate:
