We are enjoying a wonderful start to the school year, with beautiful weather and all of our students and teachers working hard.
We had some exciting news at the beginning of the year, with our district receiving a grant from the Nord Family Foundation for the fourth consecutive year. This grant will allow us to continue to expand our Project Lead the Way (PLTW) program, which offers students hands-on, project based science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) learning.
The $46,000 grant will allow Midview High School to provide a teacher with training and equip an additional classroom with the technology and material resources necessary to teach two PLTW Biomedical Science courses and help us accommodate the growing number of students interested in the program.
Our district has also released the 2017 Midview District Profile. The profile highlights Midview’s accomplishments in academics, athletics and the arts and includes additional statistics and measures of quality not included in the State Report Card.
The District Profile showcases Midview’s commitment to (STEM) education while providing students the opportunity to earn college credit for free while still in high school. The arts and athletics are also highlighted, as well as Midview’s goal to focus on the whole child through social, emotional and physical education.
We have incredibly talented students, teachers and staff who are accomplishing great things in and outside of the classroom. I encourage you to view our District Profile to see everything that Midview has to offer.
As the weather turns colder, don’t let it discourage your hard work, Middies. We will be halfway through the school year before we know it.
Let’s continue to have a great year together!
