School Safety: Interested in becoming more involved with this topic, and exploring ways how parents can work together to improve safety/building access/emergency planning? Join other parents in the newly formed CHE Parent Advisory Group (PAG). The PAG represents a friendly, welcome and open forum between parents to discuss issues that affect our school. For more information, please email email@example.com.
Visitor or Volunteers: Please remember to sign in at the office for your volunteer badge or sticker. If you are not wearing one, you will be asked to return to the office.
Free Book Resource: Staff and students have donated books for student use. The books are located in the lower area of our building as you enter the 3-5th grade hall, near the elevator. We encourage you to select a few books and also leave a few! Please enjoy our little library.
The NE Tacoma Healthy Kids Coalition needs volunteers in April and May to pack and deliver food for students at our local schools. Use this link to sign up to volunteer: http://www.signupgenius.com/ go/5080545aaae2da1ff2-food Volunteers must arrive by 4 pm on packing day – after that time the doors will be closed while the volunteers are busy packing food! Please remember to add the date to your calendar and be sure to let us know if you can’t make it by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org so we can fill any empty volunteers slots. You can visit the Coalition’s Amazon Wish List:( https://smile.amazon.com/hz /wishlist/ls/23PP0WSJDAMJI/ref =cm_go_nav_hz ) and have food shipped directly to Browns Point Elementary or drop donations off in the bin in any of the participating school lobbies.
In honor of Earth Day, Meeker Middle School is sponsoring a METAL ONLY drive. April 20th through April 28th there will be a Schnitzer Steel METAL ONLY recycling bin in the North Parking Lot off of 45th Street NE. The bin will be open during daylight hours for metal drop. Proceeds from this effort are used to assist any student to obtain needed school uniform items as well as many school supplies. Schnitzer Steel has been a partner with Meeker for several years and supported our students in many ways. We ask that all refrigerants are out of the scraps as well as PCB- small capacitors and Mercury Switches. If you are unsure please ask the volunteer at the site. Remember please, metal only (metal cans, bicycles, appliances, car parts, fencing, barbeques, chairs, tools, shelving, etc.) Questions call the Meeker front office at 253-571-6500.
