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,

Last month Meachem was recognized two different times on News Channel 9.  Once for our 1st Annual Community Musicians Day where 22 local musicians came in to perform and speak to our students about their passion for music as well as their careers.  The second time, we were featured on ‘Cool Schools’ for our Read Across America Activities and our mentoring program that is set up with 5th and 1st grade students.  Way to go Meachem!!!

In the upcoming month students will continue to learn and grow while they are here.  Baltimore Woods will be working with our 2nd grade students on Tuesdays.  Baltimore Woods provides our students educational lessons designed to promote connections to the natural world.  Our 1st grade classrooms received laptops for personalized learning with digital content.  These students will be diving into station rotations to enhance their learning experiences. 

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


Mrs. Moulton, Principal
