Call for volunteer - PTSA’s Spirit Wear chair

Ever wanted to volunteer at Mead but didn’t have much time? Come and be PTSA’s Spirit Wear chair! It requires a few hours of work at the end of summer to decide on the 2021-2022 Mead Spirit Wear designs and working with the shirt company and you’re done! It’s an essential position for our back-to-school business and we’d love it to be you! Contact Leta Hamilton at [email protected] if interested.

Call for Award Nominations! Help the PTSA Recognize Outstanding Educators & Volunteers!

Have a Mead staff member who you appreciate? Someone who has made a difference? A PTSA volunteer who goes above and beyond? Let’s recognize their dedication and hard work by honoring them with an award!

Children’s Award
This award is presented by the Mead PTSA to honor individuals who enrich our children’s lives. Margaret Mead studied and knew growing children and was their friend. This award is given in that spirit to those making a significant difference in children’s lives.

Mustang Award
