Midwest Central Beta Club had the honor of serving a meal to the families staying at the Ronald McDonald House Peoria. These students worked hard to prepare a meal of salad, spaghetti, garlic bread, and brownies. Seeing the smiles on the families faces definitely made an impact on each of us!
The volleyball team decided to make it a marathon night last night versus Rankin, taking the Rebels to 3 sets in both Matches. The 7th grade came out on top and defeated Rankin in 3 sets. The 8th grade played their best volleyball of the season, but unfortunately dropped the 3rd set. All levels played incredibly hard and continue to improve. Way to go Raiders...keep up the hard work! It's paying off!! Forman center 6th grade volleyball team defeated Tremont in their first game of the season!
The 7th grade boys basketball team fought with great effort in their Elite 8 state series game but ultimately fell short to Effingham St. Anthony. The boys finished their season with a 23 - 2 record and the coaches were overwhelmed by the support of the community as Midwest Central had by FAR the biggest crowd of the eight teams competing! Thank you for a memorable season! #RaiderNation #Raiderforlife
HAPPY NATIONAL SCHOOL COUNSELING WEEK!!! Midwest Central is lucky to have 2 amazing ladies in this district who go above and beyond for our students!!
