Greetings Margaret Mead Community,
We hope that our Mustangs are having a wonderful day off from school and that many of them were able to participate in the D54 Dot Day! Yesterday morning, the Mead staff “made our mark” wrote our Mustangs chalk messages on the sidewalks around Mead—included in these messages was each student’s personal “One Word” that they came up with in Advocacy during our opening week of school! Please check our Facebook and Twitter accounts to see these pictures! If your family is able, please come and walk around the sidewalk by Mead (make sure you are maintaining social distance!) and see the Mead Made messages from your child’s teachers! Please see below for important updates from our PTA and other important upcoming reminders.
PTA: Our PTA strives to provide the Mead community with wonderful opportunities to become involved, whether that is with “Donuts with Dad”, “Muffins with Mom”, or providing a memorable eighth grade dance. All of these types of activities are available for your family because of the fundraising we are normally able to do through our PTA Hot Lunch program. Unfortunately, given our current situation, we are unable to offer that program currently. So, the PTA has come up with several other ways to raise funds to benefit our Mead Mustangs:
V-Mead Bell Schedule: Our Mustangs successfully completed our “First 15-Day Connect” program and will now start their days in first period moving forward. Please note that first period (early start) mathematics students will begin their days at 7:30 am. I have included our bell schedule below for your reference. In addition, we sent this same bell schedule to our Mustangs this week.
Fall Conferences on October 8 and 9: We look forward to connecting with you at our upcoming student conferences on Thursday, October 8, and Friday, October 9. More information to come regarding our conference format this school year.
Eighth Grade High School Transition: District 211 has posted some basic information including information about their course placement process on their website at Class of 2025 Incoming Freshman Information Page
