Midvale Elementary School Adopted by WIDA

Thanks to FMPS’ Adopt-a-School program, Midvale Elementary School was adopted by World Class Instructional Design and Assessment (WIDA), a national consortium for improved linguistic development and academic achievement for linguistically diverse students. WIDA has donated books in English and Spanish, and volunteers helped with the community garden harvest celebration which featured parents, students, and staff making and eating salsa with vegetables grown in the Midvale community gardens. WIDA also provided volunteers for other school events, such as the winter Pancake Breakfast and the spring Garden Party, and over 100 hours of tutoring in literacy and math classrooms. FMPS is excited to see what new possibilities this partnership will create for Midvale students!
