Midway's Fall Festival & Chili Supper

For my first post I thought I would promote our Fall Festival and Chili Supper coming up this Saturday, October 20, 2012 from 4:00-8:00pm. Midway Heights Elementary School's PTA funds many things at our school through the Fall Festival, our major fund raiser. With the funds from Fall Fest, we are able to purchase items for individual classrooms that teachers would like to use to enhance their lessons and we purchase technology equipment such as iPads and netbooks for classrooms.
