Hello, Mustangs!

Woohoo!! What an exciting week as Midway Elementary was recognized as one of America’s Healthiest Schools! We received the Bronze Level and joined 461 schools across the United States in this recognition. Many thanks to PE Teacher Laura Gates and our Health and Wellness Committee for leading this challenge! Thank you to our classroom teachers for adding movement to the instructional day and to our student leaders for creating our school Tabata workouts! TRUE teamwork!! Go, Mustangs!

What a wonderful night we had at Salsarita’s! You need to know that the whole crew at Salsarita’s asked me to tell you thank you for your wonderful support!! We truly “took them by storm” for a good three hours!! What fun we had! The food was great!! Thank you all for sharing your dinner time with us!

While this has been an exciting week, next week is going to “rock n’ roll” with action! Yes! We have three BIG events this week!

  1. We have our wonderful week for the Book Fair with three mornings for Grits for Grands and one evening for Family Night at the Book Fair. Love this opportunity to get new books!
  2. It is Bring Your Parent to PE Week! Parents, you get to put on those tennis shoes and get sweaty with your child! Truly a fun time!
  3. This is our Fall Box Tops for Education Week. It is a win-win. You have already purchased the product so just clip the BoxTop Coupon and send to school. PTO will package and collect the free money!!!

Again, thank you for support! Our Midway family is awesome because of YOU!! We make a shining team of Mustangs!!

Yours truly,

Jan Fickling

Principal of Midway Elementary School
