It's beginning to look a lot like spring

The forecast is for sunny and 70 degrees next week and we hope the warmer weather will motivate everyone to take advantage of opportunities to engage with the Meany Middle School community.

Please join us for the Meany PTSA General Meeting on Thursday, March 21st. There will be lots of school updates, and we want to hear your ideas for making Meany the best it can be!

Practices begin next week for Boys Soccer and Girls Volleyball, and the following week for Track & Field. We will post the game/match/meet schedules once they are available, and we encourage everyone to come out to cheer on our teams. 

Mr. Mosgrave has been working hard getting our many talented musicians ready to perform, so be sure not to miss the upcoming Meany band and orchestra concerts. With our new bleachers in the gym this year, there is plenty of room to showcase our ensembles. Bring your family and friends.
