Attendance Matters


September is Attendance Awareness Month, let’s celebrate!

Our goal this year is to work together, hand in hand, to ensure that every student attends school regularly.

Showing up for school has a huge impact on a student’s academic success starting in kindergarten and continuing through high school.

MES 2016-2017 Newsletter

When I started at Mead Elementary five years ago, I met with teachers and staff to determine how we wanted to shape the future of education at Mead. Through several discussions, we decided that literacy was going to become the focus of our school. It was not enough to read at school and during class, our goal was for it to become part of the daily routine at home.
