Our new 120' communications tower went up today. This will improve the line of site internet connection coming into the district and between the buildings. Additionally, our bus repeater will be mounted higher to improve radio communications.

Today is the statewide principal appreciation day. As a principal, so much of your time is spent fulfilling other people's needs, both students and staff. Principals have such a demanding job day in and day out. Thank you to a GREAT administrative team at Meridian! Mrs. Guebert, Mrs. McGuire, and Mr. Hurelbrink, your leadership is so appreciated.
Substitute Teachers Needed! We are in need of substitute teachers. Below is the website link for information on becoming a substitute.

Friday night lights! Here we go!
Twas the night before school and all through the district, little Hawks were stirring to ready for bed. In hopes that the school bus to their home soon would be led. The parents were elated, all giddy with joy. With visions of quiet homes that soon would deploy. All the teachers and school staff were ready for what awaits, with promise that a great school year will be their fate. When in the morning there rose such a clatter, moms and dads arose to see what's the matter. When what did their wondering eyes did appear, but little boys and girls dressed all in Hawks gear. The kiddos were excited, the parents delighted. Finally, the first day of school was here! Welcome back! Make it a great year! We are Meridian!
