Annual Fund home stretch

Meany Mountain Lion families and friends! We are nearing our deadline of December 31st, so please consider supporting the Annual Fund today. Please note the PTSA will not be holding an auction this year, so this is our big chance to support the school and our students! With more than $23,000 raised so far, we're on pace to reach our goal, as long as we keep up the momentum. Funds help with academic classroom support, additional resources for teachers, and opportunities for students to extend their learning beyond the school day. Donate at or send a check, made payable to the Meany PTSA, to the school office. The PTSA is still in the process of acquiring 501(c)3 status so if your employer contributes matching donations, work with them on the option of backdating their contribution. You can also share this flyer about the Annual Fund with friends, neighbors, and coworkers. Thank you!

Meany Ski Bus registration due Tuesday

We are off to a good start with 15 students signing up for ski bus so far. However, we need 30 students minimum to register by Tuesday, December 19 to make it happen. The best way to register is to pick up a registration form from the front counter in the main office at Meany or download it from Webski. Just complete the registration and mail it, with a check, directly to Webbski. Please send Rusty a quick email ( when you do so he can keep track of the numbers. Also, if you know of other students who are interested please spread the word to help ensure we get 30 students! Learn about bus dates, times, and more information about the program here.
