Midway Middle School celebrated its first nine weeks accelerated reading party Oct. 17 in the gym and outside.
More than 130 students were invited as a reward for making their individual point goals and maintaining at least an 85 percent average. The party featured a giant slide and included field-day activities such as capture the flag, tug-of-war, three-legged races and relays.
The school’s sponsor unit, the 3rd Squadron, 7th Cavalary, sent 12 soldiers to help and interact with students. McDonalds on Highway 84 provided tea, water and cups.
