Student Council News:

Mead Middle’s Student Council is proud to announce the results of our Candy Canes for Kids fundraiser! With the help of the Mead Student Body, we raised over $200, which was used to buy toys that were donated to Larimer County Santa Cops. The generosity of our students and hard work of our Student Council members meant that many underprivileged children had presents under the tree on Christmas morning.

A big thank you goes out to the Mead Community for helping us to achieve this goal.
