We appreciate the great attendance at our two open houses prior to school starting. Meridian Middle School hosted its open houses over two evenings, August 21 & 22. The Meridian Parent Partnership Program (MP3) hosted its open house on August 28th, from 10:00 – 11:00 am, providing an opportunity for students, parents, and teachers to connect. Both events were well-attended. Irene Reither Elementary will host their Open House on Thursday, September 5th from 5:30 to 6:30 pm. Meridian High School is also hosting its open house Thursday evening, September 5th, from 6:30-8:00 pm. It’s an important starting point for our teachers as that initial connection between parents and teachers at the beginning of the year helps provide insight into your child’s strengths and areas of emphasis. And, parents, please don’t feel like our open house structure is the only time to connect with teachers. We are all here to serve you! Email or phone your child’s teachers or principal – or me – when you have a question. We will get back to you and answer your questions.
