THE CHANGING OF THE BOARD

Thanks to the many Midland District patrons who took time out of their schedule to go to the polls and cast their vote! We had 380 voters or 15.4 percent of registered voters go to the polls. The great turnout for a school board only election shows that everyone is concerned about our school! Thanks to all eight candidates who ran for school board this year. We hope you will all continue your interest in our district.

At their meeting on September 18th the outgoing board members were honored for their years of service. Keith Larson, Dawn Rupp and Roberta Rupp each served one term or four years. Board President Clay Pestka presented them with a certificate in honor of their service.

Thank you for your fine service and dedication to our district!

School Business Official Megan Frankfurt administers the Oath of Office to returning board member Nikki Rushford and new board members Derek Denniston and Travis Hansen. Absent was new board member Sarah Fishwild.

PARALELL PROGRESS - STUDENTS AND CONSTRUCTION

A walking tour found these things going on at the secondary building in Wyoming on September 19th. Construction continues alongside of classroom learning. Everyone was busy!

The second floor of the academic wing has been getting painted, windows installed on East side, insulation installed. They are coming together and starting to look like inhabitable classroom spaces!

This will be the main stairway from level 1 to level 2. You will start near the entry doors and media center at the bottom.

On the first floor of the academic wing dry wall has started to go up to form classrooms and the media center. It is exciting to walk in and see visible progress.

On the back side of the science wing the siding is being installed to finish this area.

The new band room has a large practice area and a nice storage room for instruments. We also have a middle school English class held in the band room, thus the reason for tables.

PE classes were busy playing mat ball in the old - new gym. It was called the NEW gym for over 50 years, what do we call it now? Maybe we should have a gym naming competition for best creative word use?

The industrial tech students were hard at work at the far northwest corner of the school today. They were learning about power saws, drilling holes, gluing wood, even some guitar playing was going on today. The shop has many new modern conveniences and is very spacious compared to what they were used to!

The gym entry area looks very Midlandesque and has some funky lighting in an industrial look hallway. We are however still waiting on Cedar Rapids Glass to bring the glass for the entry doors and windows. Once that is installed we can use it to travel to the Bronson building and parking out that direction for both school and activities.

The gym floor has been sanded and stained. The lines for the different courts were being masked off today in preparation for painting. It is getting closer to being a useable area.

The kitchen moved to a new space and has many new appliances and gadgets. Here is the serving area where the kids get their meals. Rita is in the kitchen, behind the green wall, cooking hamburgers today.

Rita is busy figuring out all of her new gadgets in the kitchen. Quite a step up from the old kitchen! The only bad part was they forgot to install a phone and internet access in their office, so Lorie is in the cafetorium looking something up on the internet.

Work on the theatrical stage in the cafetorium continues. Miss Messenger's students were hard at work in her new classroom space just outside of the cafetorium.

Miss Christiansen's students were learning about soil water today. There was a lot of experimenting going on in the ag science room.

The sewer and water trenching continues. Hopefully they have completed the area in the bus drive, but the area south of the Bronson building is still torn up, so please be careful if in this area!

Meanwhile the current office starts to take shape behind the purple board...

...until it is finished, the District and High School offices are currently located in the East side of the portable building. You can find Mr. Tuetken, Mrs. Reilly, Mrs. Frankfurt, Mrs. Hansen, Mrs. Buchholtz and Mrs. Weers there to help with your school needs.

We are however excited to share with you a drawing of what the front office should look like. This is what should greet you when you arrive at school starting in 2018! The end is in sight! What an awesome productive learning environment it will be for all!

MIDLAND ATHLETES AND COACHES COMMENDED

Midland received a letter from the Iowa High School Athletic Association dated August 25, 2017 commending our student athletes and coaches for not having any ejections during the 2016-17 school year. We were one of 165 schools to meet this criteria, which is 45 percent of the IHSAA membership.

Iowa High School Athletic Association Letter

Congratulations Eagles! Keep up the good work as we roll into the 2017-18 seasons!

CONSTRUCTION UPDATE FROM SUPERINTENDENT TUETKEN - August 31, 2017

Parents, Students and Patrons:

I just wanted to give everyone a quick update regarding our building project.

The new men and women's locker rooms passed inspection on Tuesday morning and were available for our students to use later that day. Siding on the west side of the facility is almost complete and the safety lighting for the west side of the facility has been installed.

Installation of the new gym floor began on Wednesday. This will be a 4 to 5 week process. The flooring contractors will install the vapor barrier, adhere a foam cushion to the barrier, run slats across the foam cushion and then begin the process of nailing the floor to the slats. Once that is complete the floor will need sanding, painting, staining, sealing and then waxing. One week after the contractors finish the floor, bleacher installation will begin. This will also include the installation of bleachers in the cafeteria.

We were hoping that our new south entrance to the gymnasium would be available for use in the next week or two. At this time the window sub-contractor has not been able to confirm a delivery date. Our architects are working to determine how to expedite this process. Once the glass is delivered we are hoping it can be installed immediately and a walkway can be built to the Bronson Center from these south doors. The Civil Engineer is scheduled to be on site this Friday to review some of the site work. The excavator is scheduled to return next week to continue work to the south of the facility.

Work does continue on the north side of the facility. The newly remodeled PE locker rooms are scheduled to be finished in 3 to 4 weeks as well as the new restrooms and new official's locker room and shower area. This should complete the north side of the facility except for final cleaning and waxing of our floors. We are hoping to do this as soon as the interior construction is complete on the north side of the facility. That way the dust will be significantly reduced.

The kitchen is almost complete. The oven will be fully operational on Thursday and the dishwasher is now fully operational. The second story of the new addition is approximately 70 to 75 percent complete. We are trying to push the general contractor to focus their efforts on our new classrooms so our students have access to these as soon as possible.

Overall progress is being made. It is still messy at times but in the end, this will be a facility that our students and parents will be extremely proud of.

Again, if you have any questions about the project, please do not hesitate to give me a call.

Doug Tuetken, Superintendent

NOTIFICATION - NEW VACCINATION REQUIRED OF STUDENTS ENTERING GRADES 7 THROUGH 12 BY START OF 2017-18 SCHOOL YEAR

Beginning with the 2017/18 school year students entering grade 7 and grade 12 must be vaccinated against meningococcal disease in order to attend school in the state of Iowa.

The change requires a one-time dose of meningococcal (A, C, W, Y) vaccine received on or after 10 years of age for applicants in grades 7 and above, if born after September 15, 2004; and 2 doses of meningococcal (A, C, W, Y) vaccines for applicants in grade 12, if born after September 15, 1999; or 1 dose if received when applicants are 16 years of age or older. This aligns with the recommendations by the national Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices.

One dose of meningococcal vaccine before seventh grade. If a student had the first dose as a sixth grader, then another dose is not required until grade 12.

A total of two doses are required before grade 12. Most students entering grade 12 received their first dose when they were younger and will be due for their second dose, or booster. This booster is needed because protection from the vaccine decreases over time.

The only teens that will NOT need a second dose before grade 12 are those who received their first dose on or after their 16th birthday. Parents are encouraged to check with their children's physicians prior to the start of the new school year to determine when or if they need to be vaccinated. A valid Certificate of Immunization with the new meningococcal vaccine will need to be submitted to the school the child is enrolling or attempting to enroll. If you do not have insurance or your insurance does not pay for vaccines, contact Dallas County Public Health at 515-993-3750 or 515-465-2483.

Meningococcal disease is a severe bacterial infection that can lead to meningitis (inflammation of the lining covering the brain and spinal cord) and bloodstream infections such as septicemia. Symptoms of the disease include a high fever, headache, vomiting, a stiff neck and a rash. Those who contract the disease may experience permanent brain damage, hearing loss, kidney failure, loss of arms or legs, or chronic nervous system problems.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has found the highest rates of meningococcal disease to be among preteens, teens, and young adults, as well as among infants with certain medical conditions. The new law targets many in this age group and aligns with the CDC's recommendation to vaccinate 11- to 18-year-olds against meningococcal disease.

To learn more about meningitis and how to prevent it visit www.dallascountyiowa.gov/publichealth

PLEASE SEND PROOF OF VACCINATION TO THE HIGH SCHOOL OFFICE BY AUGUST 24, 2017. Thanks for your help with this state mandate!

PARENTAL NOTIFICATION

A Jones County Deputy informed the school district today that they are seeing an increased number of issues with students and the improper use of electronic devices and/or websites to pass along pornographic photos. Students are sending pictures of themselves or other students nude via the use of email, snapchat, facebook, etc.

The deputy wanted us to be sure to notify parents to have a discussion with their students so they know this is illegal and could lead to legal charges involving child pornography or sex offender classification.

He said there is a case in Western Iowa where a 16 year old and 14 year old were dating, they broke up and one sent nude photos of the other to everyone on their contact list. That individual is currently being charged and may end up on the sex offender list for the rest of their life.

That is something that would tragically affect the rest of the student's life - future jobs, etc.

PLEASE discuss these issues with your son/daughter to make them aware of the big responsibilities of having social media accounts. Even possessing or passing along that type of information can be illegal, you don't have to be the one taking the photo or originally sharing it to be in trouble.

We would HATE to see any of our families dealing with that type of situation!!!

Thank you for all of your efforts Betty, you have positively effected the lives of students for a couple of generations already!

NHS BLOOD DRIVE A HUGE SUCCESS, FOOD BANKS REAP THE BENEFITS

Thanks to all who took time out of their busy schedules to donate blood at the drive sponsored by NHS on March 23rd! The drive was a huge success with 74 total donations which included 14 first time donors! These donations will provide as many as 296 blood products for patients in need.

The NHS members have decided to donate the grant money their group receives from the Mississippi Valley Regional Blood Center to the three food pantries within our district. So the Lost Nation, Oxford Junction and Wyoming food pantries will each receive $108.00.

These are the NHS members, photo is missing Callie Feuss who was at her Kirkwood class when taken.

Thanks to all who participated! Not only did you help those in need of blood in our area, but you helped those in need of food in our district!

A big thank you to NHS sponsor Kim Buchholtz who helped the kids organize this outstanding event!

A VISIT WITH SENATOR GRASSLEY

On Thursday, January 26th Senator Grassley took time out of his busy schedule to make a stop at Midland Middle High School to talk to the students.

Ms. Kaftan, government teacher, lined up the visit and is introducing the Senator to the student body and visitors. Students in grades 5-12 attended this assembly.

Senator Grassley answers questions that Leah and others had for about 30 minutes.

Everett and Brett asked more questions.

Ms. Kaftan, Mr. Rodenberg and board members Tom, Nikki, Keith, Terry and Clay met with Senator Grassley and gave him a tour of the school, giving him information on the renovation project.

Full album of photos can be found online at https://goo.gl/photos/5NEVLpuAzV3Zjpsw8

POSITIVE FEEDBACK

Some good news to share with our district patrons, the Midland basketball fans were discussed during a recent TriRivers Conference Choral Directors meeting, in a very positive way!

Miss Ralson reports back: "At a basketball game last week against Cedar Valley Christian the National Anthem was sung by a group of choir students prior to the game. It was reported to me that after the general applause that normally follows the National Anthem, there were many Midland parents/fans who remained standing for a little while longer who continued to clap and say "Good job!" and "That was great!" comments to the group. It was noticed by the director and the school was surprised at how supportive and positive the Midland parents/fans were! The director stated that it was such a blessing to have such a positive group of visitors."

WAY TO GO EAGLE FANS! We know we have the best fans anywhere, good to see others are seeing it too! Keep up the great work!

ONLINE PAYMENTS NO LONGER ACCEPTED AT MIDLAND VIA REVTRAK

WYOMING CENTER PARKING FOR EVENTS

The gym is back in use, we hope you will come out to support the Eagles. Unfortunately due to construction most will have a hike to get to the gym, keep in mind this is temporary and next year our facilities will be much more accommodating to all. Until then thanks for your patience. Please be careful walking as not all is on smooth terrain, you may want a small flashlight to navigate your way.

Here is our parking scenario for now: Midland Middle/High School Map

Entrance doors are the doors on EAST end of school in front of portable classroom or NE corner by bus barn, marked with yellow triangles. Parking is marked in blue and is available along Washington Street, Green Street one block East, the bus driveway, the drive by the Bronson building, behind and West of PPF and West of gym. It will be tight so please park responsibly.

It would be great if we could leave the spots by the portable for handicapped or elderly guests.

The bus driveway is a one way street going from Washington to Jones Street - you can park on both sides diagonally.

Thanks for bearing with us during construction. The inconveniences this year will lead to wonderful improvements for future years!

GO EAGLES!

FOOD DRIVE SUCESSFUL

Thanks to all who donated to the 2016 Holiday Food Drive held by Midland Schools. The Wyoming center collected over 800 items to be evenly distributed to the food banks at Wyoming, Lost Nation and Oxford Junction. The Oxford Junction center collected many too - no count available at this time. The real winners are the people in our district who utilize the food pantries. You helped make their holiday just a little brighter. Thanks for showing you care Midland District!

The FFA collected enough items for their We Care Packages to create 70 Christmas gifts for youth in our communities. Those will be passed out at each of the food pantries. Thanks to all who donated!

REMEMBERING B, FOREVER AN EAGLE

John Lyle Byers 1/30/37-11/21/16

It is with a heavy heart that we inform you that long time former shop/drivers ed teacher and wrestling/football coach John Byers passed away on November 21, 2016. His visitation and funeral were Nov 26 and 27 through Lahey's Funeral Home. Our home wrestling tournament was named after Mr. Byers dearly known as B by a great many Midland students over many years. Probably every MHS graduate from the age of 30-55 has a story they remember about Mr. B.

His obituary is at http://www.laheys.com/notices/JohnMrB-Byers

Please keep his family in your thoughts. To borrow a fitting phrase from his daughter Mimi, Goodnight John, you played a heck of a game.

FOOTBALL TEAM FINISHES HISTORIC SEASON

Special thank you to Daryl Schepanski from the Anamosa Journal-Eureka for the photo!

Congratulations to the Midland football team. 333 teams entered this season and Midland was one of the top 4 teams in the state in the 8 man division! They met up with a very talented Don Bosco team in the state playoffs at the UNI Dome on Nov 10 and lost, but they had an outstanding season! They represented themselves, their families, their school and their community very well.

This team of young men has set the bar high for future Midland teams. This year's JV team was undefeated so we are looking for big things from them in the future as well. Thanks for all of the memories seniors, you will be greatly missed.

A HUGE THANK YOU to all who supported all of the extra efforts on behalf of the team throughout the community. The support from parents, grandparents, businesses, family and friends was outstanding! Together we can do great things!
