Keep Your Eagle Engaged During School Closings

Please have your student visit his/her teacher's School Center Page for exciting sites to review skills that they might be struggling with in class. Have them review notes in their interactive notebooks, and they can never go wrong if they read. Challenge him/her to read a library book, the newspaper, or magazines. Have them locate Word Study and Grammar skills while reading. It would also be a great idea to review math skills that have been taught. Google science/history facts, and review timelines for projects that are due.

From the Principal's Desk

On behalf of all the staff members, I continue to WELCOME everyone to Meherrin Elementary School! Our school has an amazing reputation, and I'm proud to be part of such a wonderful family. I would like to encourage each parent/guardian to stay active in your child's education. I also welcome your ideas and support as we continue to prepare our students to successfully soar. Teamwork makes the dream work at MES!

Tasha Ricks, Principal
