Thank you Mead Community for your generosity during our pantry pack food drive!

At our packing party we were able to assemble 144 bags of food to be distributed to hungry students in our community.

Thank you to all who donated food, those who helped pack after school and to Jana Lovell and Adrienne Oliphant for organizing this very important outreach project.

Become a LINKS Lunch Buddy mentor today!

Lake Washington School District’s (LWSD) LINKS Lunch Buddy Mentoring Program is looking for volunteers. In as little as one hour per week, you could positively impact the life of a child in our community.

LINKS stands for Looking Into the Needs of Kids and Schools. Funded by the Lake Washington Schools Foundation (LWSF), LINKS is the LWSD community mentoring program. It places adult community members into Lunch Buddy programs throughout LWSD.

We are currently in need of lunch buddies at Mead Elementary. Volunteers are asked to commit to their assignment for one hour a week through the end of the school year.

To learn more about LINKS Lunch Buddy opportunities, visit the LINKS page on the Lake Washington School District website at:

To register for an upcoming volunteer orientation, email Chris Robison at or call 425-936-1270.


Thank you all for coming to the Reflections Reception. It is such a great opportunity to celebrate our young artists! If you didn't make it, your ribbon and certificate was delivered to your teacher's mailbox last week and will be coming home shortly.

Independent judges/artists blindly scored all submitted pieces for interpretation of the theme (50%), creativity (25%) and mastery of the medium (25%) and advancement was based on judges scores. Advancers' art was delivered to Redmond to be judged with other pieces from across the school district to determine the art pieces that will advance to state level. Council is typically announcing the results during the last week of December. All art submitted to LWSD will be celebrated and displayed at an open house at the LWSD Resource Center at the Redmond Town Center. The open house is on Friday, Jan. 11th from 4 to 8 p.m. All of the advancers from all over the school district will have their work on display. Mark your calendars to come see the art and enjoy another fun evening.

In January, most art will return to Mead (unless traveling to State or National competition) and we will proudly display all Visual Art and Photography entries in the library before they return home to each artist in late March.

Congratulations to all students! Join me in congratulating our advancers:
