PAC Fundraiser 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 our school raise money!
Traditional Parenting and Personal Healing Group for Parents/Caregivers - This group begins on Wednesday, September 28, 2016, at Midway Elementary School, and will run for 6 weeks ending November 2, 2016. Click here for more information.
Moved? New phone number or address? Allergies or medical conditions? We must have up-to-date information in order to contact parents in an emergency. Please call or email the school office if you have changed addresses, phone numbers, email addresses, etc. If you prefer, you may also print off our change form, fill it out, and return to the school.
Please also let us know if there has been a change to your child's health or home situation that the school needs to be aware of.
