Mr. Gauwitz's Desk

I have lived in the current Midland community for my entire life. I graduated from Midland High School in 1999. I met my wife Sarah during high school at a wedding our senior year and married in 2005. We have two wonderful boys (Quin and Kyler) who keep us extremely busy. I attended Edgewood College in Madison, Wisconsin where I played baseball and obtained my degree in History Education.

I started my teaching career here at Midland High School in 2004. I taught most of the social studies classes, coached basketball, coached baseball, and sponsored student council for the high school. I pursued a degree in Educational Leadership at Western University in 2010.

I served two years as Athletic Director and one year as Assistant Principal. I assumed the title of principal in fall of 2015. I truly love this community and I promise to continually strive to make this  high school a safe and positive learning environment for our future leaders. Remember: “It’s a great day to be a Timberwolf.”

Welcome Back 2018-2019

Dear Parent,

I hope you had a wonderful summer so far and on behalf of Midland High School, I would like to welcome you to the 2018-2019 school year. With this letter I hope I can count on you as a partner in order to ensure our children can have the best possible education and school experience. In order to be successful, all of the students need support from both the home and at school. I would encourage you to become an active participant in our school through volunteering, joining PTO, Midland boosters, and/or attending school events whenever you can. Research supports when parents/guardians participate in their child’s education, there is a greater likelihood of academic success for the child. Additionally, I want to stress the importance with you our commitment to the safety of your child as well. Our primary goal is to focus on learning, and efforts are ongoing to provide the safest learning environment possible for everyone.

 Lastly, I feel privileged to be a part of this school community and I thank you in advance for your support this year. I am sure this will be a productive and exciting school year for everyone. Remember, It’s a great day to be a Timberwolf!

Easter Eggstravaganza 2017

On April 15th, 2017 MHS Freshman and Sophomore classes conducted our first annual Easter Eggstravaganza. They had a tasty pancake breakfast, games, a raffle, face painting, and concluded the day with an Easter Egg hunt. Kids were also able to take pictures with the Easter Bunny. It is amazing to see what can happen when great people come together for a good cause. The kids had an amazing time and we hope to make this a yearly event. We are always thinking of ways to connect more with the community. A big thank you goes out to Mrs. Aldrich, Mrs. Schaer, Ms. Ramseyer, and the students for a great time!! Thanks for all of the hard work you put into this event.

1st Month

The first month of school has gone by really fast and everyone is settling in nicely. Please check the daily announcements on the main page for updated information. Also, please visit Mr. Gauwitz’s Desk for weekly educational posts/updates on what is going on in the school. Parents: next week will be our yearly MAP testing for all Freshman and Sophomores. We will have an incentive dodgeball party for everyone who made significant growth from their spring testing session last school year. Lastly, the class that illustrates the most growth from last year will receive ice cream during lunch. Good Luck!!
