Dear South Meadows parents and families,

We are off to a great start for the 2014-2015 school year! 

Thank you all who took the time to come to back to school night on Sept. 23.  We had a great turn out and I enjoyed meeting and talking to many of you!  There are many fun and educational activities happening this fall that are highlighted in this newsletter, so please note the ones that are of interest and/or pertain to you. 

If you have not yet signed up for my regular email updates, please send me an email at smithbe@hsd.k12.or.us and I will get you added to my list.  I try to send out updates every two weeks or so, just to let you know what is coming up for you and your child.

I look forward to meeting and working with you this year.  Please don’t hesitate to reach out with questions or concerns as they arise.
