What:  Inflatables: Mega Obstacle Course, Superbouncy House, Blue Bonco House, Kangaroo Jumparoo, and Basketball Hoop Throw; Games, Snow Cones, Pizza and More

Why:  To recognize students for their efforts in increasing the attendance rate, improving test scores in reading and math and decreasing discipline referrals.

Please encourage your student to do his/her best as we continue into the second semester.  Meridian CUSD 101 can and will improve our attendance and graduation rates, increase our test scores, and decrease our incidents of discipline.  Thank you to our students, teachers, parents, bus drivers, cafeteria workers, office staff, custodians, support personnel, and the Board of Education for their continued support and effort to help students achieve success!

It takes all of us to make a difference!

Reminder, students must go home after school
and not  loiter in the halls or gym.
A student should ONLY remain in the school, after
school, if there is a supervised activity going on
and the student will be under direct adult
supervision.  If that is not the case, the
student should ride the bus home after school.
Thank you for your understanding and
cooperation in this matter.
