Let's help our students celebrate!

There are exciting activities planned next week, where Meany students can celebrate their accomplishments of the year and enjoy some fun together. Field Day for 6th and 7th graders will be happening on Wednesday, June 20th while the 8th graders are on their cruise. And 8th Grade Promotion is Thursday, June 21st at 7pm in the cafeteria. We need parent volunteers for Field Day and 8th Grade Promotion. Please contact Ms. Baker if you can help a staff member run one of the Field Day stations from 12:45-2:30pm or help with set-up beginning at 11:00am. Ideally we would like 6th & 7th grade parent volunteers for the promotion night, so 8th grade parents can enjoy the celebration with their students. Please contact the PTSA Volunteer Coordinator for more information if you can help on promotion night.

Thank you Library volunteers!

Ms. Macer would like to thank the Library volunteers who have helped the Meany Library for their tremendous efforts: "Your dedication and generous support made a huge difference in getting a new library up and running, the programming being offered, and having efficient turnaround for books. Volunteers shelved, made fliers, drove students, drew posters for book promotion, checked books in and out, sent in donations, cooked hot dogs, helped with bulletin boards, and so much more. I thank you from the bottom of my heart. You made a difference in the Meany Library and for the students. Apologies if I have omitted anyone."
