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,

January was a great month at Meachem.  Students were invited to attend a performance by Red House, ‘The Plant that Ate Dirty Socks,” right here at our school.  The students all followed Meachem expectations and were PAX leaders.  The students really enjoyed the performance.  We also had our VIP parties to celebrate students that had no referrals and followed expectations for the 2nd marking period.  The students and parents that attended, loved the dance party and the prizes that were given out at the end.  It was so nice to see so many happy faces!

We strive to have every student, every day of the school year.  To encourage our students, each day on the announcements we announce classrooms with perfect attendance.  At the end of the month the classroom with the most days with perfect attendance receives a pizza party and an award. 

Students have been engaging in personalized learning in their classrooms.  Teachers have been working hard designing lessons that fit the needs of all of our students, which is evident in the growth that they are making on their STAR assessments.  Meachem was recognized for having the largest amount of growth in Early Literacy in the district.

Help us keep up the great work by sending your child to school on time each day, every day!
