    Partnership:  D&H and Midway Electric: Wild About Literacy - P.I.E. Week

    Kick-off dates:  2009 and 2008

    Meet Tanya Alberty (D&H Drugstore) and Michele Spry (Midway Electric, Inc.)

    "During the annual Partners in Education Week, we celebrated with the Midway Heights Elementary students at their school assembly. This marks our 14th year as a Partner in Education and Tanya’s 13th year. I am lucky to have an amazing PIE to work alongside, but more importantly, the opportunity to work with our youth. From my early years at Midway Heights (Kindergarten through 6th grade) I have always felt the need to give back to a school that gave me so much.  

    We truly appreciate the many gifts from each of the classes and the 5th grade class might have made me a little emotional...when my nephew Jaxon came forward to give me his classes gifts and all the students stood up holding signs saying, “Thank You for Everything, Partners in Ed!”

    Thank you to the entire staff and teachers at Midway Heights for all you do and continue to do for the kiddos that walk through your doors. Our partnership is easy when we get to work with people like you all!"

    Forever a Midway Eagle!

    "Our "Wild About Reading" literacy week at our Partner in Education school, Midway Heights Elementary, was a great success! The Partners in Education committee helped coordinate crafts, story time, Zumba and even a slithering good Zoom presentation by the Runge Conservation Nature Center!

    The Midway Eagles blew our 50,000-minute challenge out of the water with a total of 61,422 minutes read! We celebrated with Kona Ice COMO!

    Our top-class readers read over a combined 14,334 minutes and were rewarded with BOOKS!"

    What an exciting week to be a part of!
