Midland 4th Grade Enrichment Students Spread Message of Hope
Fourth grade students during the Zoom meeting

Midland School 4th grade enrichment students banded together to create a video message of hope and encouragement for the Midland School community. Meeting via Zoom, students prepared a video presentation for their classmates and their families in which they sent the message that most people are very good people and that students can make a difference. The students practiced voices and worked with added sound effects to create a presentation that, along with a soundtrack of inspirational school songs, was placed in every child’s Google Classroom.

Midland School Weather Award

Midland School student Nicholas Tavano was recognized for his service to the students of the school. In June he gave his final weather forecast to the students via a Zoom report. Midland’s principal awarded him with the certificate during his weather report and thanked him for all the years he has been reporting the weather and keeping Midland students prepared for the weather conditions. We look forward to getting future weather updates as Nicholas moves on to middle school. Nicholas has inspired younger students via his Zoom reports. Younger students have been expressing interest in continuing the work that Nicholas started.

The students at Midland will be so excited to read these new offerings in the school library while fondly remembering the years of service given by these dedicated members of the Midland family.

The Midland School faculty and staff got together virtually to create a sing along version of This Land is Your Land that was featured in the weekly video announcements. Teachers collaborated under the direction of school media specialist, Robert Marion, to create the virtual choir from their homes. Students and their families were excited to see the culmination of these efforts during the virtual morning announcements throughout the month of June.

Celebrating the 4th Graders

Midland School 4th graders were recently celebrated as they move on to middle school. In addition to a honk-out parade, students also received a slideshow that virtually continued many of the end-of-year 4th grade traditions. Set to the soundtrack of their own voices from their four prior spring concerts, students were met with a barrage of wonderful photo memories of their years. Teachers recorded video messages on Flipgrid wishing students well. The traditional “M” photo was recreated remotely to conclude the slideshow. We cannot wait for this class of 4th graders to come back and visit us in the future.

Thank You, Principal Hulse!

Midland School faculty and staff participated in a drive-by celebration of Principal Cynthia Hulse's retirement. While they plan to celebrate the event in person in the future, the drive-by was an outpouring of support celebrating years of dedication to the students and staff at Midland School. Mrs. Hulse was caught by surprise as the school Sunshine Committee secretly decorated her lawn before the multitudes of cars honking horns and shouting well wishes began pouring down her street.
