PAC FUNDRAISING - Did you know, you can support the fundraising efforts of your PAC, just by buying groceries at Overwaitea? There is no extra out-of-pocket cost to you! Simply buy an Overwaitea gift card (mention that it is to support Greenwood/Midway Elementary PAC), then use your gift card to pay for your groceries! 5% of all gift card sales goes directly back to the students (field trips, special guests, and more). What a great way to help your school!
Fundraising 6/7 Field Trip - THANK YOU to everyone for your continued and ongoing support of our fundraising efforts for the 2018 field trip.
Contact Information - We must have up-to-date information in order to contact families in an emergency. Please call or email the school office if there is a change in address, phone number, email address, or your child's health or home situation.
Please check your child’s hair for head lice on a weekly basis and, if necessary, on a daily basis. Public Health has provided us with an excellent "tip sheet" for "How to Deal with Head Lice."
