Meachem's Vision:
The vision of Meachem Elementary is to provide an environment that develops life-long learners who are peaceful, productive, healthy, and happy.

Meachem's Mission:
In collaboration with students, families, and the community, Meachem will provide a safe and supportive learning environment that is committed to growing the whole student. With strong relationships at its core, Meachem will provide personalized learning experiences to propel each student to meet their full potential.


Greeting Meachem Families,

There are many exciting things for students to learn this month.  5th graders are learning all about the Civil War while 4th graders are learning about the American Revolution. Also, teachers have been splitting students up into small groups to provide personalized learning during ELA and math.  Many teachers are using laptops in their station rotations for student small groups to enhance learning.   

Another exciting thing to share with you all is that selected third graders began the Rapid Reader program which takes place each day for 30 minutes.  This program has been created to increase fluency in reading.  Students will work on myOn, with an OASIS tutor, and work peer to peer to build skills to make them better readers.   

Thank you to all the families that donated to the Thanksgiving Food Drive last month.  Students helped organize the foods to distribute them into different boxes.  These boxes were given to families in our community to help them through the holiday season. 

Please make an effort to get your child to school on time each day and pick up at dismissal at 2:50.  Every Student, Every Day.

Sincerely,

Mrs. Moulton, Principal
