March 20th, 6:30 p.m. @ Roy H.S.
Throughout the school year, our students have been receiving Character Education presentations in their classes. Some of these lessons come from a program called "Prevention Dimensions," which teaches students to make good choices throughout their lives.
All Midland students have been learning songs from "Prevention Dimensions" and will be singing with their grade at our Life Skills Musical Program. We are excited to also have Steve James, author of the Prevention Dimensions songs, perform for us. He will be offering his CDs at a discounted rate for our students and families. They will be available to purchase that night.
February was an amazing month for Box Tops. The final total was 10,039 Box Tops!!! This earned $1,003.90 for our school. This is a new record. It normally takes 3 or 4 months to collect this many Box Tops. Well done Panthers! Also, a big thanks to Mrs. Reader who counted all of those Box Tops.
March is McDonalds month. The class that brings in the most Box Tops in the month of March will receive a free lunch from McDonalds.
We are super excited about yearbooks this year. For the first time ever, they will be completely in color! This cost of the yearbook this year will be $10.50. In the past, the school has purchased some extra yearbooks, but due to the decreased budgets we will not be able to do that this year. We will only order yearbooks for those that have pre-ordered and paid for them. We are accepting orders until the 3rd of March.
Sponsored by Miss Blamires's Class
Miss Blamires's 6th grade class is sponsoring a community blood drive. The blood drive will be held on Wednesday, March 5th from 12:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. Their goal is to receive donations totalling at least 30 pints.
We are going to start a contest amongst the grades. The classes that give their home reading the most 'heave ho' will get a trophy in their rooms for the month. For those mateys in the winning class that helped win the prize (students that recorded their reading days), there will be additional loot! They will get a fun school supply to help them with their studies. We will have three shipshape classes each month! Remember to read every day and report your reading to the Road to Success website. (Ask your teacher for a registration code.)

Providing a safe learning environment for students is our number one priority. A critical ingredient in the safe school recipe is the classroom response to an incident at school. Weather events, fire, accidents, intruders and other threats to student safety are scenarios that are planned and trained for by students, teachers, staff, and administration.
You can earn cash for our school by clipping Box Tops coupons from hundreds of participating products.
This is an easy fundraiser that can do a lot for our school. Please send your Box Tops to school with your student. Please make sure the Box Tops are in an envelope with the student's name, their grade, and their teacher's name. Keep clipping and know that your efforts are appreciated.
If you haven't done so, sign up here!
