Meriwether Principal Leila Davis

Hello Explorer Families!

We’ve had a great first few weeks at school! Thank you for everything that you have done to support your student(s) and help us make it a success! It’s hard to believe that October quickly is approaching.

As we prepare for changing weather, please be sure your student is dressed appropriately. The mornings are already a bit chilly so be sure your student is wearing a coat/jacket to school in the mornings. Kids do go outside in the colder months for recess so having a coat is essential. To ensure that a coat, hat, gloves, or scarf don’t end up in the lost and found, write your child’s last name and at a minimum first initial. This helps staff get lost items back to their owners!

Also, please remember that all celebrations, including birthdays, are FOOD FREE. We are excited to celebrate this special monument in your child’s life, but also want to honor the many allergies that we have present in the school. That being said, our wonderful staff and teachers work hard to provide options for students/families to make the days special. Contact your child’s teacher to find out more!

As Halloween approaches, it is important to know that we DO NOT celebrate Halloween at school. This ensures that we are able to keep our routines and learning consistent for all students. No costumes, make-up, or obscuring face paint may be worn. Thank you for helping us to keep our focus at school.

If you are new to JBLM or Meriwether, we welcome you! As a family friendly school, we have a shared belief in all students! We are a Kids At Hope school where every student is capable of success, no exceptions and no excuses!

PTA Updates:
We are looking for parents who want to work with the school and support the PTA for the 2019-2020 school year. We would love for you to join our family and engage with us on some amazing and fun things for next year! This group supports our evening activities, field trips, and more!
