midtwon-academyBy Jennifer Devon, Executive Director of The Midtown Academy

Fall’s a busy time for all of us here at The Midtown Academy. Here’s what we’re up to:

Our Fall Open House will be held Friday, November 4 from 1:00-3:00 pm. Parents and families of prospective students are invited to come and tour The Midtown Academy and meet with teachers and staff. Light refreshments will be served. RSVP jhackett [at] if you’d like to attend.

The Midtown Fund Annual Appeal: Thanks to everyone who has donated! Your generosity makes a big difference to each of our students.

Mock Presidential Election: Students are ready to exercise their civic duty by voting in their own mock election on Monday, November 7, 2016. Students throughout the school have been studying the various elements of our government and look forward to exercising their right to vote. A mock voting booth, ballots and election judges will be present to give our students a real voting experience. If you are interested in volunteering for the election or for other events, please contact jhackett [at]

Art Auction and Exhibit: We are excited to announce our third annual Uniting Diverse Artists art auction and exhibit on January 20, 2017 at the Riggs Gallery at MICA. This year’s art auction will celebrate who we are as a unique, thriving, and diverse K-8 school.

A VIP cocktail hour beginning at 5:00 pm will feature local celebrity bartender Joseph Edwardsen from Joe Squared Pizza and some amazing Midtown themed cocktails. We look forward to seeing you at this event! Tickets and sponsorships are available at
