Hello, Mustangs!

Many thanks to Ms. Sandy Perkins for her wonderful time with us! We so enjoyed getting to know her and appreciate her commitment to our children. Our door will always be open to her! One of our students did not know her name so he called her the “sweet administrator”! So true! Her smile and voice is always kind and sweet!! Thank you, Ms. Perkins!!

Welcome back to our charming and talented Assistant Principal, Ms. LaQuana Aldridge!! We are thrilled to have her return to our Midway family. While we know she will miss her new little family member, she is eager to greet and get back into her work and fun with our young Mustangs. We will see her on Monday morning!!

Our young Mustangs continue to make us proud! Both of our Kindergarten and First Grade students have held their Student Led Conferences this week. It truly amazes me to see our youngest lead discussions about their learning with adults!! I know our parents are just as proud as I am. Congratulations to these Mustangs! Our Second and Fourth Graders will host conferences next week.

Please do add to your calendars two big Midway events. We will have our Spring Music Festival on Tuesday, April 2, at 6:30 p.m., and Field Day on Friday, April 12. Field Day is a day in which we will need many volunteers so I wanted to get this on your calendars as quickly as possible. It takes a village for this day to be successful.

Have a wonderful weekend! Read a great book with your child and ask him/her to lead you in a physical workout like they do in our Tabatas!

Yours truly,

Jan Fickling

Principal of Midway Elementary School
