It is that time of year for Mead Junior High School to begin the Mead Family Giving Tree.   Because our community has many things to be thankful for this holiday season, we believe there are Mead families who would like to share with those in the community who are presently less fortunate.  Community members are invited to participate.  When you come for conferences this week, you will see our Giving Tree up in the main office. If you’d like to participate, simply take an ornament off the Giving Tree—there is no limit to the number of ornaments/students you’d like to support. When taking ornaments, we also ask that you check in with our front office staff and get the list for the student. Gifts need to be turned in to the office by December 12.  On our website, you can also make monetary donations through the Mead School Store. The Mead Family Giving Tree has set up a donation page for families to donate on the Infinite Campus Portal.  The Mead Family Giving Tree Project helps support families with needed items and presents for children.  The Giving Tree Donation page is now open.  If you would like more information about Mead’s Family Giving Tree, you can contact any member of the Guidance Department at 847-357-6000.   Thank you for your consideration to the Mead Family Giving Tree Project.   To make a monetary donation, please log in to the Infinite Campus Portal HERE and follow the directions below:

When you login to your Portal Account you will see a new option on the left-hand side called, “School Store.”  Once there, please select “Mead”. 
Once you click on Mead, then you will see the “Family Giving Tree” icon.  Once you click on the icon, then you will see the below information expanded out. 
You can then enter any donation amount you prefer ($5.00 minimum), along with a comment section if you’d like to add a message.  Adding to the cart will then allow them to make the donation to the Giving Tree.
