Lost and Found

The Lost and Found is overflowing with coats, sweatshirts, etc. Please take some time and search through it if you are missing items. Thank you!

We only have 9 days of school left--so please look soon- all items left will be donated.


June Grab and Go for Teachers and Staff

Dear Mead families,

This June, in addition to their education jobs, Mead staff will be packing up the school.

All items have to be removed or ready for district storage by the last day of school. We know Mead Staff will be at school longer on weekdays and coming in on the weekends to get this done.

We want to help with a 'grab and go' bar of easy snacks, to get them through meals missed due to packing.

Please take a look at the sign up and indicate on which day you could contribute an item - ideas include granola bars, bags of trail mix, fresh fruit, protein shakes, etc.

Pleaes sign up here: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/20F0D4FABA622A0F85-june

Thanks in advance for helping sustain our staff through this extra workload!


Donated Used and New School Supplies are Needed!

Happy June!! The school year is almost over, so it is the time for the USED (& New) School Supply Drive to benefit Hopelink/Issaquah Food Banks and Sister Schools Charity* .
Boxes will be out in the courtyard as you enter the school beginning Monday, June 14th thru noon on June 20th.

We will be collecting USED and NEW crayons, pencils, markers, chalk, colored pencils, used spiral & composition notebooks, paper, books, paint sets, binders, pencil boxes, clean backpacks, rulers, glue sticks/bottles, dictionaries, balls and books...ANYTHING you use in the classroom can be re-used.

New pencils/pens, markers, colored pencils and pencil boxes go to Hopelink/Issaquah Food bank to be re-distributed to those students in need in the school district. Used school supplies and books are shipped to Uganda, Africa with the charity Sister Schools where they are dispersed to rural schools and orphanages. Boxes will be available until noon on June 20th!! Please encourage your students/kids to donate!!! THANK YOU!!!

*SistersSchools.org. Sister Schools partners schools in Western Washington with schools and orphanages in Uganda, East Africa to provide school supplies to poor children.


National PTA Art Contest 2019/2020 Theme Announced!

Do you know about the PTA Reflections Art Contest? It’s an annual competition hosted by the PTA that goes up all the way to National level (starting at school level, then district, state and national). Does your child love art and would like a chance to display and celebrate their work? Then consider participating in the PTA Reflections Art Contest!

The theme for the 2019/20 school year is LOOK WITHIN (Entries are judged largely on interpretation of the theme). There are 6 categories to enter - visual arts, photography, music composition, literature, film and dance. Entries are to be 100% kid produced.

Would you like to know more about it? All rules and more information are available at https://www.wastatepta.org/events-programs/reflections (please note – our district does not accept Visual Art 3D entries). Please make sure to read through the rules, as the format requirements are very specific. This is just a little heads up, for next school year. Maybe your young artist would like to work on her/his project over the summer. At Mead the competition will be advertised again at the beginning of the next school year and the art work will be collected at the end of October 2019.

If you have questions, please email kerstin.wick@comcast.net
