FINISHING TOUCHES

A very noticeable final touch was put in on May 14th when sod was laid down in front of the Wyoming center. Voluteers had also planted some shrubs in front of the school the weekend before. Now things are looking finished in Wyoming. We love the new look!

DECISION DAY, GRAD WALK AND STATE TRACK SEND OFF

May 15th all students K-12 were at the Wyoming Center for some celebrations! We had Decision Day, which is an assembly to celebrate the senior class and their decisions for the next phase of their life. Seniors were asked to wear shirts from the colleges or tech schools or armed forces or businesses they plan to go to next year. Staff were asked to wear shirts from the colleges they attended. There was an assembly and then a grad walk where all of the underclassmen lined the hallways and gave the seniors high fives as they walked through. Everyone greatly enjoyed this! You can see a video on facebook (sorry we cannot attach a video directly to our website):

Following the Decision Day fun the elementary students stuck around and helped us see off the state track kids in their fire truck send off. Good luck at state boys/girls!

HELPING THE BECKER FAMILY

On March 10th our 5th grade teacher and girls basketball coach Nathan Becker was injured while tree cutting and was airlifted to St. Luke's where he underwent surgery. Mr. Becker is currently in the hospital with brain injuries.

Thanks to all who volunteered, donated, played and attended our Becker Basketball Fun Day on March 31st. A great time was had by all. We had an unbelieveable amount of baked items that all sold! We had a lot of basketball played and are guessing there were a lot of sore older muscles the next couple of days. What a great show of support by our community. A member of another community had this to say "Wow, this is incredible but not surprised, this is what your community does." ABSOLUTELY!!! We are MIDLAND and we are BECKER STRONG! Thanks Eagles!

There will be a few different fundraisers coming up for the Becker family to help with his medical expenses. Keep caring Midland....

The Believe in Becker group will be raffling off 1 market pig processed at Lindley Locker in Center Junction during July or August 2019 through Midland Schools. Tickets are $5 each or 5/$20 and are available at Midland High School, Citizens State Bank or Franzen Tractors. Thanks to Brock and Michelle Hansen for donating the pig and to Lindley Locker for donating 1/2 of the processing fees. Drawing will be held at the June 29th benefit.

On Saturday, June 29th a community group will also be holding a dinner along with live and silent auctions and a bags tournament. Donations of auction items or baskets would be greatly appreciated, contact Shelby Denniston, Christine Kreel or Sheri Dosland to arrange those or drop off at Midland Schools, Citizens State Bank or Franzen Tractors.

Becker Benefit Flier

You can also donate directly to a benefit account set up at Citizens State Bank in Oxford Junction, Wyoming, or Olin. Cards with walmart or Casey's gift cards mailed directly to Becker Family, 1917 Bear Creek Road, Monmouth, IA 52309 are very helpful also.

Please keep the Becker family in your thoughts. We hope Nathan is right back with his kids where he belongs very soon!

STUDENTS PARTICIPATE IN JUNIOR ACHIEVEMENT TITAN CHALLENGE

On April 10th Midland sent two junior boys to participate in the Junior Achievement Titan Challenge. This is the first time Midland has sent a team and they learned a lot about the competition. There were 24 teams there and Midland was the smallest school represented. The teams played against each other in groups of 8 and placed 1st through 8th. Only the first and second placed teams in each of the three groups played for the two scholarships in the last round all the others played for a consolation prize. Our teamtied for second in the group they played against but somehow got bumped down to third and they are not sure how or why so their second round was just for consolation.

Both boys had fun and learned a lot and complained of being tired on the way home. It was a mentally exhausting experience for them, but one that will be beneficial in their future.

Beating out 17 other teams in the first round was a great achievement for their first time participating! WTG GUYS!

WHOLE GRADE SHARING UPDATE WITH OLIN

We had several students and parents come check out the Wyoming Center at a recent open house held on March 27th. This open house was held due to a new Whole Grade Sharing Agreement we have with Olin Schools. Olin students in grades 7-12 can choose to attend at Anamosa or Midland now.

If anyone missed the open house but is interested in Midland please give us a call to schedule a tour or to obtain a preregistration form.

Students interested in attending Midland should fill out the pre-registration form that was available at the open house or call the Wyoming office to obtain one. This way we can get you scheduled into classes with our current students before they fill up.

We look forward to a great partnership with the Olin District.

TOOLS OF THE TRADE

On March 20th we had some guest speakers come in to talk to our 6th and 8th graders about different careers. A big thank you to each of these speakers for sharing their knowledge about their career field: Jones County Sherriff's Deputy Jason Feldmann, Jones County USDA Resource Conservationists Michelle German and Addie Manternach; River Valley Coop Director of Talent Management Daniele Mineck; Nutrien Ag Chris Shinker; Unity Point Health Jones Regional Medical Center Registered Nurse Angie Lambert; and Madeline Studios owner/photographer Megan Fish.

Thanks for coming and showing us some new career fields that we might not have thought of.

THREE ADVANCE TO STATE INDIVIDUAL SPEECH WITH PERFECT SCORES

Congratulations to Kilee, Kaedynce and Lillian who received perfect scores at Individual Speech contests and advance to state competition.

They will compete on Saturday, March 9th at North Scott in Eldridge.

Good luck ladies!

MIDLAND LARGE GROUP SPEECH RECEIVES PERFECT SCORE AT STATE CONTEST!

Midland's Large Group Speech team, under the direction of first year coach Heather Kidder, qualified for state competition which was held on February 2nd. At state they performed 10 Ways to Survive the End of the World by Don Zolidis and received a PERFECT SCORE!

Ms. Kidder explained the selection process to us for All State Speech because it is confusing. "The stages are districts, state, and All State. We scored the highest score in Districts - ranked by one judge. We earned a perfect score at State-ranked by three judges. All State is just a showcase of the top performers in Iowa. Out of every group who earned a perfect score at state, they choose a few to represent each district in All State."

"A handful of the groups are chosen to perform and a handful to attend and receive medals, though they don't perform. We are going as non-performing."

All State is on February 16th at the Iowa State Center in Ames. Congrats to all!

Congratulations to the team: Ryan Gailbreath, Kilee Stropes, Lauryn Eganhouse, Emily Hainstock, Bryce Rushford, Lillian Strait, Rashelle Cole, Kaydence Stevens, Chiara Dusanek, and Jenna Eldred.

SPANISH LEARNING

Marcella Rickels has a group of students who have been reading a book about Costa Rican traditions and traditional food from Costa Rica. Today they learned and practiced food words. They then enjoyed an authentic Costa Rican dish called Gallo pinto which is discussed in the book and is also one of their vocabulary words.

Marcella enjoys sharing her customs and traditions with our students and is a real asset to our Spanish classes.

During our school day all exterior doors are locked for student safety so you cannot come in any door but the front MAIN ENTRANCE.

If I am not right at my desk it may take a minute or two to get someone to unlock it. If no one comes in a minute or two please push the button again. When the office unlocks it you will hear a click and then you have 20 seconds to pull the door open. Then you will need to enter the door to the right that goes through the main office. All visitors must check in.

Parking for visitors is in the lot closest to the science wing of the building. You can short term park in the curved area along the sidewalk. Please do not park along the straight sidewalk south of the building during AM or PM around bus times.

REMINDER - STUDENTS ENTERING GRADES 7 AND 12 NEED VACCINATION

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j-kQDtufbO4&feature=youtu.be

Beginning last 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 23, 2018. Thanks for your help with this state mandate!

NEW BUILDING OFFERS POSITIVE LEARNING ENVIRONMENT AT MMHS

Now that our construction days are finally nearly behind us, and the Midland students and staff are at home in their new school environment, we thought we would take a look back.

This process began back in April 2015 when the $12.83 million bond issue was passed by district voters by a mere 1.8 votes. School Business Official Megan Frankfurt said "The project actually came in slightly less at $12.343 million." Construction began the following April and is just now finally wrapping up, Principal Carol Reilly said "All that remains is a punch list of small items to complete, which we have to wait until the weather warms up."

Maybe the most noticable part of the project was tearing down our beautiful three-story Bronson building which was over 100 years old. Though this was a tough one for long standing community members to swallow, this keeps our students inside one building all day, no more walking between buildings in sleet, rain, snow and wind. Reilly said "It also eliminates an environment which was not conducive for 21st Century education. There was no sound barrier. It was very noisy, especially when students transitioned through the building. It was not handicapped accessible. It had poor heating and cooling." There is an area just inside the Events Entry that commemorates the Bronson building with a bench made from some of the old oak floorboards and brick being used on one wall.

Another advantage is now all of our students are safely in one structure. All visitors have to buzz in through the main office and all other doors are locked during school hours. We also have enhanced our security cameras both inside and out during the project.

The athletic facilities were greatly enhanced with the addition of a new bigger Gold Gym and a new wrestling room which doubles as a safe room for weather emergencies. The Athletic Booster Club gained their own concession stand, no more carting items to the kitchen from a closet and back each night.

One unplanned part was that by changing the school physically we also changed the school's address when Green Street was vacated for the project. The Middle High School now has a 106 W Webster Street address, this has confused many of our delivery truck drivers which has been a challenge!

Principal Reilly said academically the new facility is "world's above what we had. It is a cleaner, brighter learing environment. We all feel better being here." The school no longer needs to dismiss early for heat due to the air-conditioned facility. We also have an elevator making the two-story academic wing handicap accessible for all. Reilly praised the students and staff for their resiliency during the entire project saying "They were phenomenal through the process" as all had to deal with moving classes, changing bus drop-offs and living in a construction zone and some of the older students never even got to make use of the facility before graduating.

Midland NHS members gave guided tours to anyone who came on December 18th before the basketball games. When asked about the Open House, Brett Schoenherr, senior, said "I don't know how many people were there for sure but I did have plenty of good comments about the new school. Many people that I talked to couldn't even believe how nice the new facilities were. They enjoyed the Bronson bricks and benches by the food stand and they definitely think that Midland is heading in the right direction."

Midland students and staff are very grateful to the Midland Community for supporting the bond. This building gives you a real sense of how much the Midland community as a whole cares for the stuents and values rural education. "They believe in the future of the community here."

If you've not seen the new building yet, we encourage you! This is your facility. Thanks again Eagle Community!

Thanks to Kim Brooks, Monticello Express Editor for contributions to this article.

MMHS SHOWING WE CARE

FFA WE CARE BOXES

Thanks to generous donations from our community of boxes, toys, candy and wrapping paper the FFA was able to create 125 We Care boxes to be distributed to our local food pantries to be given to kids. Thanks to all who donated or worked on this wonderful project!

FOOD DRIVE

A food drive was held during November and December at MMHS. We collected more items than usual as Mrs. Reilly challenged the kids and offered a movie outing for the seminar with the most items collected.

The winning middle school class was Ms.Yousse with 879 items which totals out to 41 items per student. The winning high school class was Ms. Kaftans with 265 items, approximately 22 items per student. All of the items will be split between the three food pantries within our district: Lost Nation, Oxford Junction and Wyoming. Thank you to everyone who participated!

GIRLS BASKETBALL TEAM DOES FUNDRAISER FOR RONALD MCDONALD HOUSE

Coach Nathan Becker and his girls basketball team held a ice cream sundae fundraiser at their home game on December 18th to raise funds for the Ronald McDonald House in Iowa City. They will deliver the items donated and cash to the Ronald McDonald House on December 22nd. If anyone else wants to contribute contact Coach Becker at 563-212-5214 or nbecker@midland.k12.ia.us.

Thank you all for participating and eating some ice cream supporting the girls fundraiser. We raised a little over $500 and had a box of children's gifts and personal items to pass on to them. We will be taking these donations Saturday as well as staying and baking some Holiday treats for the residents.

Thank you all for the support and a thank you to all of the Cal-Wheat fans for participating as well, and a extra thanks to the Cal-Wheat boys basketball team for bringing a huge basket of stuff to donate!

ISASP TESTING REPLACES IOWA ASSESSMENT TESTS THIS YEAR

This year, our students will begin taking a new statewide assessment. It will replace the Iowa Assessments. The new test ISASP (Iowa Statewide Assessment of Student Progress) were developed by Iowa Testing Programs and the University of Iowa. The assessment is designed to measure student learning outcomes as outlined in the Iowa Core Standards. All districts in the State of Iowa are required to give the ISASP in a window during the final quarter of the school year.

The new test has some significant changes from the Iowa Assessments. First, the test can be taken online or on paper. Midland has decided that for the initial year, we will remain with a paper and pencil format for the test. Second, the ISASP has fewer tests. Students in grades 3 through 11 will be tested on Reading, Writing and Language, and Math. Students in grades 5, 8, and 10 will be tested on Science. Third, students will be required to write a passage from a prompt on the ISASP. Finally, the test will be untimed. Students will have as long as they need to complete each section.

After the first of the year, the state is going to release some practice tests. Students throughout the district will be given the opportunity to work through the practice test questions so that they can become familiar with the new question types and the new format of the test.

As in the past, families will receive student scores. However, we have been notified by Iowa Testing Programs, that the scores will not be released to districts until sometime next fall. Student growth, proficiency and readiness indicators will be reported to district at that time as well.

The MS/HS will be testing from March 20 through March 29. All students should plan to be in attendance at this time. HS students that attend Kirkwood should plan to be in the building in the building for testing all day on March 21 and 22.

HOW TO BE A GOOD SPORT

If you have not heard, one of our JH wrestlers did something that showed very high character and selflessness. Logan Bicknese was able to give a win (Logan let him win) to an athlete from Lisbon that is less fortunate than him. Although Logan himself doesn't have a lot of wins yet this season, he saw the need to give this one away as it would mean more to the other athlete.

Here is a link to the tweet with a video: https://twitter.com/MrNboots/status/1062505983962988545

Coach Gravel's wife Theresa said "It was awesome to watch. Logan really made Midland proud. And he was simply asked to give the kid some mat time and not pin him right away. Logan made the decision to give the kid the win on his own and told coach as he was taking the mat. It really was a proud Midland moment." WTG Logan! Keep up the great work!

BUSINESS INDUSTRY EXAMS

Mrs. Koch is our business teacher that we share with North Cedar again this year. She is proud to announce that Alex G, Callie P and Jordan T have all passed the Microsoft Office 2016 Word Specialist Exam and the Microsoft Office 2016 PowerPoint Specialist Exam.

This gives them the right to include this certification on their resumes as it is a business industry exam (not a high school exam). Congratulations to all on a job well done and laying a good foundation for your future careers!
