Note from the Principal...
Please continue to support our Schoolwide Expectations on being Peaceful, Productive, Healthy and Happy. Talking to your child about school expectations is a great way to reinforce appropriate school behaviors.
February's Life Skill: KINDNESS
Each month Meachem has a different life skill to support character education. Each Monday, the students watch a video on the life skill and have discussions around it at Morning Meeting each day.
This month's life skill is 'KINDNESS.' Kindness is a type of behavior marked by acts of generosity, consideration, or concern for others, without expecting a reward. Kindness makes children happier, can reduce stress levels, and helps improve their self-esteem. Kind actions also activate the joyful area in the brain and boosts well-being.
Each day at Meachem we celebrate kindness on the morning announcements. The teachers recognize students that are 'caught' doing random acts of kindness with a 'Caught Being Kind' card. Please ask your child if they have been recognized yet!

PAX Leaders of the Week
Each week classroom teachers choose one student per grade level that exhibit PAX characteristics of being 'Peaceful, Productive, Healthy and Happy' while they are here at Meachem. This award is given to students that consistently follow the Meachem expectations and to students that show significant improvements in following expectations. The PAX leader is recognized each Monday at our school-wide morning assembly and is celebrated throughout the week.

Cold Weather Outerwear
If you have any outerwear that your child has outgrown, please consider donating items to Meachem. We are always in need- especially snow pants!
The cooler weather is upon us! Please keep in mind that our students will continue to go outside for recess. If the temperature is 20 degrees Fahrenheit or above, recess can take place outside. If the temperature is below 20 degrees Fahrenheit (this includes factoring in the WINDCHILL), recess will be indoors. Students should always have appropriate clothing for the weather: Coat, boots, snow pants, hat, and gloves.
Also, please remember to label your child's cold weather clothing.
Meachem Spirit Wear
Don't forget every Friday is Meachem Spirit Wear Day to communicate how much we care about our Meachem Community.
