Carson Scholarship Winner Announced

The Midtown Academy is excited to announce their newest inductee into the ranks of Midtown Carson Scholarship Awardees. Jonathan Veale, 8th grader at The Midtown Academy, was honored this April for his outstanding academic performance, commitment to community and his caring personality and heart. Midtown is proud to stand behind Jonathan and his family as he enters Baltimore School for the Arts next year.

The Carson Scholars Fund awards $1,000 college scholarships to students in grades 4–11 who excel academically and are dedicated to serving their communities. The minimum requirements are a 3.75 GPA and involvement in community service. Schools are generally allowed to nominate only one student per year.

BIKEMORE Bike Installation at The Midtown Academy

You may notice something new outside our doors here at The Midtown Academy. BIKEMORE, the organization which works to expand, protect and promote bicycle infrastructure between neighborhoods, installed their 100th bike rack right in front of our school.

Students, teachers and staff will now have a safe space to lock up their bikes during the day. “Our goal was to encourage our students to ride their bikes to schools, promoting healthy lifestyles and a quick way to get to and from,” says Midtown Executive Director, Jennifer Devon.

Bingo!

Annual Bingo Raises Over $4,500!

Thank you to all of our community friends and families who came to support The Midtown Academy at this year’s BINGO! Well over 50 players attended, and they helped us raise $4,665 to support critical programs here at The Midtown Academy. Not only did we raise money for our school, but we had an awesome time winning bingo baskets full of prizes and auctioning off great experiences with our Midtown teachers and staff. The Midtown Academy wants to especially thank 1st-grade teacher Mrs. Engel, who took this on along with some of our dedicated parents. Thanks to all those families who makes Midtown such a special place.

Midtown Students on the Run

If you think you’ve seen a flash of lightning coming down Lafayette, don’t be alarmed. It’s just the 5th through 8th grade students in The Midtown Academy Running Club. Students meet every Monday in their “pace groups” and head out for an hour of running and fun games. Thanks to community volunteers and new friends from Morgan State University for helping Midtown’s students get in shape and have fun doing it.

Congratulations to the Class of 2017 

We are excited to announce the 2017 graduating class of The Midtown Academy, who will be attending schools including City College High School, Baltimore Polytechnic Institute, the Institute of Notre Dame, Western High School, Baltimore School for the Arts, Milford Mill Academy, Greene Street Academy, Bluford Jemison School, and Digital Harbor High School.
