Our District Vision Statement
Midland Public Schools provides a dynamic world class education that develops the unique talents
of all students in a safe, secure and healthy environment.
The deadline for nominations is Tuesday, July 1
In an effort to recognize members of the district’s support staff, the Board of Education established the Distinguished Service Award in 2002. Nominations for the 2013 Distinguished Service Award are being accepted from June 1 through July 1, 2013.
Mr. Michael Sharrow
It is my honor to let you know that at last night’s Special Board Meeting, MPS Board of Education members voted unanimously to select Mr. Michael Sharrow to be our finalist for the position of Superintendent of Midland Public Schools.
Going into the evening, we had two very capable, professional candidates, Dr. Wayne Anderson from Mt. Horeb, Wisconsin, and Mr. Sharrow, from Algonac, Michigan. After two extensive interviews with these very accomplished educators, Board members felt we had two very qualified candidates from which to choose.
Following last night’s deliberation where Board members discussed both candidates’ interview responses as well as their professional qualifications, accomplishments and references the Board felt Mr. Sharrow would be the right person to lead Midland Public Schools into the future.
As in years past, DVD copies of the 2013 graduation ceremonies can be purchased for $30 plus tax. If you want to reserve a copy, please fill out our reservation form below. You will be contacted after June 10 with additional ordering information.
Four Midland Public Schools teachers were honored on Thursday, May 9, with the 58th Annual Gerstacker Teacher Proficiency Awards held at the Griswold Lecture Hall at Northwood University.
The awards “recognize contributions by exemplary teachers beyond the ordinary level of professional performance,” and are made possible by the support of the Carl and Esther Gerstacker Donor-Advised Community Foundation. The winners receive a cash award to be used for travel, continuing education, research in education or other appropriate purposes, along with an engraved permanent testimonial.
We would like to congratulate this year’s recipients: Wendy LaCourt, Ellen Flegenheimer-Riggle, Linda Murray, and Kathy Romain.
