Mid-Prairie Speech Breaks Record

18 members of the Mid-Prairie Speech Team competed in 24 events at the Iowa High School Speech Association's State Individual Events Speech Contest at Xavier High School in Cedar Rapids on Saturday, March 9. Of those 24 events, 23 got Division 1 ratings, and 11 earned All-State nominations, and are advancing to the IHSSA Individual Events All-State Festival on Monday, March 25 at the University of Northern Iowa. This breaks Mid-Prairie’s previous record of six total Individual Events nominated, set in 2021 and tied within 2023. For this Individual Events season, Mid-Prairie is tied with two other schools for the most events in the IHSSA Southeast District, and only three schools in the entire state of Iowa have more events nominated.

Congratulations to MPHS Student of the Week, Jesse Stultz!

Congratulations to MPHS Student of the Week, Jesse Stultz! Jesse was nominated by Mrs. Puttmann, "Jesse (as well as many students) had a couple of crazy busy weeks with extracurricular activities, including state jazz band competition, band concert, music contest, and soccer games (and probably even more). Through it all he has continued to prioritize his academics. Jesse comes in before school and in Hawk Block to catch up on what he has missed. I'm so proud of his hard work. Jesse is also a kind and considerate classmate. Thanks for being a part of the Mid-Prairie family!" Great work, Jesse!

Congratulations to MPHS Student of the Week, Ella Titus!

Congratulations to MPHS Student of the Week, Ella Titus! Ella was nominated by Mrs. Seward, "She works as the TA in the Culinary Foundations class and then is a student in Culinary II. Last week the Culinary II class ran late and left the lab in a less than pristine state. She came in on Friday and totally cleaned the lab so it would be ready for an event being hosted there over the weekend. This was over and above what was expected, but it was SO appreciated! Ella is a wonderful support to the Culinary Foundations students and a strong leader in the Culinary II class." Great work, Ella!
