Happenings at MLS

It’s a busy time of year at Meriwether Lewis Elementary. As we edge closer to the end of the year and to do lists grow longer, please take note of some great things going on around our school that you and your kids will not want to miss out on:

1) The MLS PTO is sponsoring a Candy Drop. This is intended to help kids understand the fun of Halloween but minimize the impact of candy on our daily lives – diet, sugar addiction, and activity level. To participate, students may choose to donate a portion or all of their Halloween candy. A drop box will be located at the entrance to MLS between Thursday, November 1 and Friday, November 9. Candy should be placed into a plastic grocery bag, zip lock, etc. that can be secured. Students should place their name, grade and homeroom teacher’s name on a piece of paper inside their bag. Winners will receive a pass to JUMP and 1 LUCKY student will get to teach PE. Donated candy bags will be drawn at random on Monday, November 12th. Click here for more information.

2) This year’s Annual Fund Drive has begun. The Annual Fund helps raise money to provide a variety of programs and services at Meriwether. All donations of any amount make a BIG difference. Click here to learn more about this year’s fund drive and to make a donation.

3) Kids Market is coming!!! This year’s Kids Market will be held on Friday December 7th from 6:30 to 7:30 at the school. This popular event is and annual favorite and encourages our kids to exhibit their entrepreneurial skills by making, marketing and selling their goods.
