Coins for Carmelo

Midland School students, families, and staff are busy with our annual “Coins for Carmelo” drive. School nurse, Catherine Alvarez, spearheads this initiative each year in honor of our beloved student Carmelo Marrabello III. All monies raised go Carmelo’s Chapter, a non-profit named for Carmelo. Carmelo’s Chapter provides scholarships for former Midland Students, donates to organizations fighting childhood cancers, and donates to Midland School so we can purchase books and other literacy materials. Carmelo was an avid reader and talented writer!

Midland School Has Heart

Fourth-grade students at Midland showed off their caring spirit and newfound comradery after participating in the month-long Kid’s Heart Challenge. Mrs. Quimby challenged students to participate in a program promoting healthy activity for the heart, while raising money for the American Heart Association. Students participated in jump rope activities among other heart-healthy exercises in the gym as they do year round, but in February, they focused on how this benefits their heart. Students received bookmarks in the library that showcased young children whose heart conditions got treated with money raised in past challenges. Seeing how their efforts helped other children was also a great benefit to the kind hearts of the Midland students.
