Dear South Meadows parents and families,

It's hard to believe that half of the school year is almost over and spring is just around the corner.  Where did 2014 go?   It's been an amazing school year so far and I'm looking forward to all the things coming up in the next few months. If you want to be kept in the loop for happenings at South Meadows, please send me an email and I will include you in my parent updates.  Email me at smithbe@hsd.k12.or.us to be added to this list. 

Please keep in mind that we DO want and need volunteers at the middle level.  If you have time and are interested in helping out, please call or email and we can talk about options that best suit your skills and abilities. 

Finally, April 9 will be our third annual college and career day.  If you are willing and able to present to students about your college and career path, please email Geri Claxton at smms.career.day@gmail.com

Take care and have a wonderful day!


Becky Smith
