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! Teams and coaches have been assigned, and will begin meeting soon! The competition will be on April 3rd this year.
The Reading Rivalry books are those selected annually for the Maud Hart Lovelace Book Award. This year there are 10 books; 9 are appropriate levels for grades 3-5. After reading the books, the participants vote to select the Maud Hart Lovelace Book Award Winner!
Reading Rivalry is open to students in grades 3-5. There are separate competitions for each grade.
For study guides and more information on the books, check out the Reading Rivalry page.
Planning is underway for the 2020 Art Fair! This year’s art fair will be held on Friday, March 20th at 6:30 pm. 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.
Along with viewing the work of Middleton artists, there will be refreshments and activities to enjoy. We will have awards for many different categories, including the ‘People’s Choice’ award. This year’s People’s Choice award winner will win a pizza lunch with Mr. McNamee.
Middleton PTO Needs You! The majority of our PTO board positions will be vacating at the end of the school year. Are you interested in helping to lead, co-lead or organize any PTO events?
Current board positions:
Vice President (2)
Community Engagement (2)
These positions do not require a “full time” commitment, we truly want as many voices on the board (and at the PTO meetings) as possible, to ensure that we are serving parents, students and teachers in the best way.
Please reach out to chat, if you have any interest in learning more – we are happy to find a way for you to contribute in a meaningful way. Thanks for helping to make the Middleton community thrive. Don’t want to be on the board but still want to help? We have plenty of opportunities for parents to volunteer throughout the school year.
Events that need chairs, co-chairs, or parent volunteers include:
