Dear Mead Community,
It was a great week leading up to break at Mead! We had our first all school spirit competition and I’m happy to report Mrs. Knight’s first period class won the whole class prize for having all students wearing their favorite college gear and/or colors. We look forward to challenging our students again to wear Mead gear or Mead colors on April 2nd and see which class wins!

Please make sure you also complete the answers in the parent portion and sign the form, this is required also in order for the physical to be accepted.
