The event will feature a 56-minute film followed by a 20-minute question and answer period led by Meany school counselors. All students will be viewing the film during the school day. This is a great opportunity for families to join the conversation on this important topic. This film is recommended for ages 10 and up. Admission is free. A donation of any amount will enter you into a drawing for a $100 spa gift card. Concessions will be available for sale.

Changes to after school program at Miller Community Center

Beginning Monday, March 5th, the program will be open only to the first 20 youth who are registered. Please download the registration form which has additional details of how the program will run, the emergency information form which will need to be updated for anyone who participates, and a copy of the March program schedule. There is a Meet and Greet on Thursday, March 8th at 5 pm here at Miller Community Center so parents of registered participants can come, meet the staff, and ask any questions in person they may have. Anyone who isn’t signed up for the program will not be able to participate due programming limitations, so it’s very important that any youth who would like to participate, turn in their registration info ASAP. It is recommend that the completed paperwork is brought to the center rather than emailed back, as there is sensitive information requested on the forms. Contact with any questions.

Donations needed

Calling all student artists!

We are planning on a really fun art event in May. If your student brought home artwork from the first semester, please hold on to it so we can display it. We would also love to showcase performance or visual art that Meany students have produced outside of the class. More details to come soon!
