The Midway Market has not allowed a pandemic to slow it down. Even with about a fourth of the students in remote learning and not being able to have a physical market in the lobby, our 4th-grade entrepreneurs were able to raise $5447.66 in three weeks!
After developing a rigorous rubric using a five-star rating system for grades, community service, extra/co-curricular, and an essay about "Why or how has Midway influenced you?" Mr. Cong's students chose three alumni to award the Midway Alumni Scholarship. Each senior will receive a scholarship of $1812.55.
This 9th year of the Midway Market is a special year because the class of 2021 is the class that started the original Midway Market, coming back full circle.
The project has raised a total of $31,608.86 in these past nine years; all for various charities.
