Madison Westside Kiwanis Club.

Midvale School has been adopted by the Madison Westside Kiwanis Club.  As with most Kiwanis clubs, the Madison West Kiwanis Club is a snapshot of the community, with members (men and women) from all walks of life and at every step of the career ladder. They are unified in the belief that children and the community benefit from the efforts of caring and involved volunteers. As a new partner, Kiwanis members have already been hard at work supporting students at Midvale!

They are:

  • Volunteering at our Family Potlucks, proviing clean-up help, sharing food, helping out with childcare and getting to know families.
  • Supportig our students by leading "Lunch Bunch Clubs" at Midvale- sharing lunch and playing games with students during the lunch hour
  • Working in classrooms to help teachers and students
  • Supporting Midvale financially through their grant program. They have funded our purchase of computer mice and headphones for our students.

MIDVALE KIDS AND STAFF ARE GRATEFUL FOR OUR KIWANIS PARTNERS!
