At Midway Elementary, we believe that all students succeed! Midway is a small school nestled in the northern suburbs of Atlanta. We are considered a Title 1 school. 50% of our students receive free and reduced lunch and close to 40% of our students are second language learners. We currently have 653 students enrolled.
We are so blessed with wonderful, caring families at Midway. Many families cannot afford school supplies or books to read at home with their children. Our community is so generous to assist with many of their needs. Students at Midway love visiting our media center to check out a new book to not only read themselves, but also share with their parents at home. We love that our students can many times help their parents learn to read and speak English.
We ask our students to read 20-30 minutes per day and that students move at least two reading levels during the year! We believe Midway Elementary School’s mission is for all children to develop a love of learning and to achieve to the fullest extent possible in a safe environment that recognizes and supports their individuality as learners and as people.
By considering Midway Elementary School for a book donation, you are not only supporting the students of our school, but many families in our community. Your thoughtfulness and generosity will certainly be greatly appreciated. The kids will be so excited to receive new books!
