On Friday and Monday, I had a chance to watch our MHS Girl's Soccer team tie DPS and defeat Riverton. To see the hard work these girls, managers and coaches have put in makes me so proud of them. Keep working hard girls and you will continue to see the success it brings! We Are Meridian

As part of their Distracted Driving Awareness Week, SADD was pleased to have Trooper Jordan Meyer conduct a distracted driving simulator presentation to our PE classes. Many were challenged to drive a simulated course while being required to text and face multiple other distractions. We hope this encourages our students to make smart driving choices!
