Mead Superintendent Dr. Tom Rockefeller, Midway Principal Josh Westermann and other key players in the upcoming Midway Reconstruction on Friday morning declared the official beginning of our 14-month project that will create a whole new school!
With a sea of plastic construction-clad students sitting patiently, Dr. Rockfeller, Mr. Westermann, and our beloved retiring PE teacher Mr. Mortlock shared thoughts and inspiration about the history and upcoming changes in the future.
Shortly after the official "groundbreaking" ceremony, families joined their students for a family picnic! It was a great goodbye to our north lawn, which along with most of our green spaces, will be disappearing soon in the first phase of construction!
Below is a copy of the wonderful poem written and delivered by Mr. Mortlock.
