Ashland Play: The Grunch
Unfortunately, the play has now been cancelled. Ashland should have let families know about ticket refunds. But we did get this amazing medley from some of the Grunch cast!
Check it out here:
Middleton, along with the rest of the District 833 elementary schools, will be participating in field week starting Monday, May 18 - Friday May 22. Here’s a sneak peek of what’s to come:
Middleton Day with the Minnesota Twins!
The Middleton Twins game outing that was to take place on April 19 will not be rescheduled this year. Emails went out to families regarding refunds. If you ordered tickets but have not received your refund instructions, please reach out to Marea Anderson.
Reading Rivalry is an optional, PTO-sponsored event. Teams form a reading club, read a variety of books, and participate in a competition about those books. The intent is to foster a love of reading, introduce the students to books they may not otherwise choose, provide opportunities to work as a team, and to have fun! The competition unfortunately was cancelled this year, but we encourage our readers to finish the books they had planned to read for the event.
For study guides and more information on the books, check out the Reading Rivalry page.
VIRTUAL Art Fair - ***Going Online Friday, March 20***
At this time, our event is canceled. BUT! We will be displaying an online gallery to display all of the artwork that Middleton students created. Students K - 5 can enter with any artwork they’ve created in the past year, including projects they’ve worked on at school or at home. Art can come in any shape or form - drawing, painting, sculpture, or mixed media. Please take a photo of their creation and send it to Marea Anderson - we will continue adding art as it comes in.
