Kindergarten assessments are scheduled for next Monday and Tuesday. Letters of appointments were sent in June to the parents of incoming kindergarten students.

Interested in joining the Mead PTSA board??
We are still need of a Volunteer coordinator and Enrichment coordinator and would love to have you join us!

Enrichment coordinator: This position works with the YMCA and informs Mead parents of before and after school care options. You may also work with outside enrichment vendors who may want to teach at Mead. There is no fee collecting or soliciting enrichment teachers – the YMCA handles that aspect. This positing is more of a liaison between the Y and Mead. Plan to attend board meetings which are held once a month, on a Thursday evening at 7:30pm.

Volunteer coordinator: The volunteer coordinator ensures that event chairs have been given their list of volunteers (from online registration at the beginning of the year). Also work with President and Vice President to host a chair information meeting at the beginning of the school year so event chairs know how and where to find the resources they will need for their event. It is not expected that the volunteer coordinator takes on volunteer roles that are not filled, this person is a liaison between volunteers and event chairs. May help by organizing sign-up genius postings for events if needed. Plan to attend board meetings which are held once a month, on a Thursday evening at 7:30pm.

Please contact Molly if you’re interested or have more questions. president@meadptsa.org


Tickets now on sale! Run for the Roses Auction!
Saturday, November 10th

Saturday, November 10th is our Run for the Roses, fundraising gala. This auction fundraiser will be replacing the annual Mead Stampede and is integral to raising funds to help support supplemental programs and resources that benefit all of our students.

The auction is a chance for Margaret Mead families, staff & community members to come together and celebrate not only our wonderful school and community but to also raise money that directly benefits our children. As parents and caregivers, we all deserve an opportunity to get to know one another and to get to know our wonderful staff. We are stronger together!

Auction Tickets can be purchased here: https://meadptsa.tiptopauction.com/auction

Donations are still being accepted and requested!


National PTA Art Contest!
Spend the summer to start thinking about the Art project!

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 2018/19 school year is Heroes Around Me (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 art work will be collected at the end of October 2018. If you have questions, please email kerstin.wick@comcast.net
