Greeting Meachem Families,

I am hoping that you all enjoyed a much- deserved winter recess.  Student came back on Monday morning, ready for a March packed full of learning and fun! There are many special things to look forward to this month! We encourage you all to come see some of these wonderful things happening at Meachem!

Read Across America week took place last week, Feb. 26- Mar. 2, with Dr. Seuss’s Birthday on Friday, March 2nd.  Students came in all week dressed to impress in their Dr. Seuss Spirit Week wear.  Guest readers came in to read to our students, this included parents, students from other schools, and local community members.  Thank you to everyone who made last week special. 

We are also excited to celebrate the hard work and creative accomplishment of our 3rd graders, who have been working all school year to put on an original performance. Third graders at Meachem Elementary and Open Hand Theater have teamed up to put on a trilogy of fantastic fables!  The classic fables to be performed are The Fisherman and his Wife, The Boy Who Cried Wolf and Anansi the Spider. The Performance date is Thursday, March 15, 2018.   The 9:15 performance will host grades PreK – 2. Please come enjoy the show and support our students!

As always, we appreciate your support and dedication to Meachem Elementary. Thank you for sending us your BEST students, each and every day!
Mrs. Moulton, Principal
