Mead Middle School Weekly Update:

Local Veterans Wanted!!!

Mead Middle School’s student council will be holding our first annual Veteran’s Breakfast on November 10th at 7 am.  Our students will be serving breakfast and also spend some time getting to know our best and bravest.  If you, or a family member (grandfather, grandmother, uncle, or aunt) would like to attend, please call the office by November 1st (970-535-4446).  Please help spread the word!

Cold Weather Reminders:

 

As the daylight gets shorter and cold weather approaches, it is a good time to remind everybody about a few items that often come up in the winter months.

 

-All students not participating in a school activity or working directly with an adult need to be out of the building by 3:00.

 

-If your student is at an afterschool activity, please pick them up promptly as we do not want students waiting in the dark.

 

- We love our students to attend games and dances.  If your student attends these functions, the expectation is that they are sitting in the stands or in the dance area.  Students are not allowed to go outside or roam the building.  If students do go outside, they will be asked either to return to the correct area, or go home.   We simply do not have the manpower to supervise students in those other areas.

-Please make sure your students are dressed appropriately for the weather.  If we were to have an emergency evacuation, students may have to leave the building without getting their coats.  This could require your child to be in the cold for an extended period of time.  There is a big difference between waiting in the cold in a long sleeved shirt, pants, and shoes, than a tee shirt, shorts and sandals.

Pictures:

Pictures are coming home with your child today.  Picture retakes are October 13th.  If your child needs a retake, please have them bring back their first picture packet on the 13th.

2016 CMAS Test Scores

If you attended conferences, we handed out last years test scores.  If you did not receive these test scores, they will be coming home with your student as soon as we receive all of the test scores.  If your student went to a different school last year, it could take a few weeks.

THE MUSICAL NEEDS YOUR HELP!

The school's costume and prop closet hasn't been updated in many years and we would like to be able to provide more resources for our Mead students. If you have any retired costumes or props in your closet that you would like to donate, we are more than willing to receive them! We will take any costumes and props you might have!

Particularly, we are looking for:

  • King's crown and Queen's crown

  • A scroll

  • 3-4 Serving trays

  • A multitude of plastic food

  • 4 Chef's jackets and hats

  • Light-weight dinning room table and 3 chairs

  • 2 Hooded cloaks (think Fairy Godmother cloaks)

 

If you are also interested in building some extra props for us, please contact Mrs. Wagner for more details. We will need:

 

  • Simple carriage that can be pulled by 4 "horses"

  • Fireplace

  • King/Queen's thrones
