Smile Illinois will be in the Meridian district the week of March 13. They will be available to examine students' teeth with parent's permission. The applications were distributed at students' enrollment and will be sent home next week. You may also access the application on-line at www.myschooldentist.com or pick up a form at either school. Dentists will clean teeth, apply fluoride treatment and sealants. Any other problems will be reported to parents. These dental exams qualify to meet the State Required exams for students in Kindergarten, 2nd, 6th and 9th grades
The Celebration of Excellence was a success!!! Excellence is defined as the quality of being outstanding and surpassing ordinary standards. Excellence is more than a set level of quality or perfection. Instead, the quality of excellence should be continuously redefined.
