Kids at Hope

Meriwether Elementary is a Kids at Hope school which means we are committed to the belief, principles and practices that support the success of all children, No Exceptions! No Excuses!

To achieve our vision we are creating a community where all adults see themselves as Treasure Hunters and all children learn to be Time Travelers.  Treasure Hunters are caring adults who search for the skills, talents and intelligence in all children and youth. Time Travel is the learned capacity to envision one’s future at life’s four major destinations:  Home and Family; Education and Career; Community and Service; and Hobbies and Recreation, return to the present and prepare for the journey. We call that HOPE.

Each morning our students recite the Kids at Hope pledge:

I am a Kid at Hope.
I am talented, smart & capable of success.
I have dreams for the future and I will climb to reach those goals & dreams every day.
All Children are Capable of Success, No Exceptions!

Each morning our staff joins together to recite the Treasure Hunter's Pledge in front of our students:

As an adult and a Treasure Hunter
I am committed to search for all the talents, skills and intelligence
that exists in all children and youth.
I believe all children are capable of success,
No Exceptions!

We recognize and celebrate the Kids at Hope philosophy throughout the school year.  We truly believe that EVERY child is capable of success, NO EXCEPTIONS!  NO EXCUSES!
