Fridays are preschool pledge days!
Mrs. Gough, Mrs. Herrin, and Mrs Frank attended a training on Executive Functioning last week and learned a lot! The teachers have already implemented some of the new strategies into their teachings. A new strategy was used in gearing up for March Madness when the classes made basketball themed Oreo pops. Students learned how to visualize the finished product first, then work backwards to create a plan and develop steps for making the tasty treats. The next step is the writing process and we are excited to see how this initial strategy helps the kids get their ideas down on paper to create more detailed writing! "Get Ready, Do, Done!" Message from Mrs. Gough: Parents/Guardians, we learned a great deal on tips and tricks that can benefit you at home if your kiddos struggle with organization and time management. They are very quick and simple strategies. Reach out to Mrs. Gough at the primary school if you're interested in learning more about how this could help at home.

We know our Raiders are trying to make plans for the summer and have had some questions lately about the last day of school for the 2023-24 school year. It is CURRENTLY May 30th. Please keep in mind that even though we have been blessed with wonderful weather lately, we may still need to use another emergency day before the end of the year and the last day could change.

Today we presented the family of the young student in our District fighting cancer with the proceeds generated from our HS boys' basketball Coaches for Cancer Benefit. The total amount collected from all sources of the benefit totalled $2025.00. Midwest Central would like to thank all those who donated and purchased items for this cause.
We have openings for bus drivers and monitors. There are regular and substitute positions open. Come join the Raider family!
Kindergarteners are always having fun! Monday, we celebrated our 101st day of school.
Our Administrative Assistant team of Mrs. Miller, Mrs. Wilbur, and Mrs. Gregory are the glue to this whole building. Our grade level and student support teams keep the students flowing throughout the day but the secretarial team keep the adults working at maximum potential. They are the face and voice of the building, Ms. Timm, Mr. Mooney, and Mrs. Jackson's right (and sometimes left!) hands, and the logistical masters. They assist the adults with technology for the multiple programs we utilize, plan schedules, identify barriers and successes we could encounter, order all materials for our staff, and keep students and parents calm when uncertainty is faced. They are the life and breath into our adults who then breathe that life into children. We are one team here at MCPS and we need each other in so many ways to create forward motion, with purpose.
"We Are Raiders!" Now for the Raiders who really keep Midwest Central Primary School functioning each day. Our paraprofessional team are the masters of all trades. They help students off and on buses, coordinate lunch and recess, assist with all levels of academic learning, help students make friends and demonstrate respect, tie shoes, assist with personal care, play games, and the list goes on and on and on. Our daily student functioning could not occur without the supports of these paraprofessionals: Front Row: Mrs. Schafer, Mrs. Moore, Mrs. Williams, Mrs. Trettin, Mrs. Oertle, Mrs. McIntyre; Back Row: Mrs. Meeker, Mrs. Piro, Mrs. Neulinger, Mrs. Byrd, Mrs. Neulinger, Ms. Mangold, Ms. Sloter (not pictured: Mrs. Garman, library paraprofessional).
