We are looking forward to another great year at Midway Elementary! We are a richly diverse learning community that celebrates the many backgrounds our students bring to our school.
 
Midway proudly partners with our families and community in a variety of events that take place throughout the year. This includes the Back to School Rally, PTA events, Midway Mustang Mornings and Parent Academies. 
 
Enrichment opportunities are also an important component of our students’ learning experience. We are entering into another year of partnership with Seattle Art Museum (SAM). This year’s focus will be on migration and will help us to kick off our Midway International Celebration. We are also lucky to have our friends from Des Moines Police Department and Welsely Homes who provide weekly reading buddy time to our students. Our partnerships are valuable to our learning community as they provide our families with extension opportunities. 
 
At Midway, we believe in serving the whole child. This includes the physical, social and emotional well being of our students. This year we will continue to partner with Sound Discipline to support our students social, emotional and behavioral needs. We will also implement Second Step in all classrooms. This program provides students with research based social skills. 
 
Our unique school model integrates technology into core content throughout the instructional day using a blended learning model. Adaptive technology programs are used to personalize learning for our students by meeting their learning needs at their individual levels. Midway Elementary’s 3rd-6th grade students are 1:1, meaning each student has their own assigned Google Chromebook. Our K-2 students use a 2:1 model using ipads and Chromebooks. Some of our programs include Lexia, MyOn Reflex Math and Think Through Math. 
 
Our blended learning model has continued to be recognized as a site visit for neighboring districts. We have hosted district teams to share the ongoing work that our staff implements and works to find success using a station rotation model. 
 
We look forward to another successful and great year of learning. We are thankful for our partnerships and collaborators who help to serve our Midway families. Please feel free to email or contact us directly with any inquiries. 
 
Sincerely,
Rebekah Kim
