Open House Schedules

Our schools host events leading up to the first day of school. You won’t want to miss Open Houses! You can find the full list of schedules on the website.

Community Pep-Rally & Teacher Convocation

New this year: We’re inviting our community to the teacher convocation on August 9 from 8-9 AM in the Wade E. Miller Arena on the MHS campus! Attendance is FREE and you’ll hear inspiring messages from staff and students. The spirit shop will be open as well! This is a great way to get excited about the start of the school year. See great performances by our high school orchestra and more! Last year’s convocation was a packed house with teachers, staff, and city officials and this year will be even better! 

First Day Photos!

We want to see those smiling faces of your Pre-K through 12th grade students as you document another memory of your child’s journey through school! Just a little Googling and you can get some great ideas for those photos. We’d love for you to share your children’s best First Day photos with us on our Facebook page, on Instagram (@middletowncityschooldistrict), or Twitter (@MiddletownOH) with the hashtag #MiddiesFirstDay and/or #MiddieRising. 

Power tip: holding your phone sideways (horizontally) usually results in much better photos than shooting vertically and (hint-hint) are more likely to make it to Middie stardom on our homepage (wink-wink!). 

Health & Wellness Center
