Mr. Schellenberg’s Advanced Woods class made a Free Library Reading Nook for the Library Learning Commons at Mid City High School. The books on the top two shelves are for the high school students and the preschool books on the bottom shelf are for teen parents to take for their children. All books on the nook are free for the taking and do not need to be checked out or returned. Various teachers, community members and students have donated books for the free library.
The talented students that built the Free Library Reading Nook are Jacob Leutkenhaus, Seth Pineo, Kirk Gray and Trevon Johnson. Congrats on a job well done!
The Art Department held their first “Night of Installation” on Friday, May 5 from 5:00pm -7:00pm. Art teacher Mrs. Lewis has a number of talented student artists this year and wanted to display their art work throughout the school for all to see.
Mid City’s Teen Moms graduated today from United Way’s Born Learning class. The class was delivered over six Wednesday’s and taught attendees how important school readiness is for their children and steps to take to ensure their child’s success. Educational materials and children’s books were provided each session for parents, grandparents, and caregivers in order to better understand child development and how every day holds numerous teachable moments for their child.
Mid City wants to thank United Way for partnering with the school to provide a thoughtful and well-planned learning opportunity for our amazing teen moms. Congratulations ladies – you should be proud of yourselves!
