    Dear Meridian Families and Community,

    It is my pleasure to welcome everyone to the 2021-2022 school year at Meridian Elementary. We are all excited to have our students back in our classrooms and our school filled with the noise and enthusiasm of learning. Our mission is to be a safe community dedicated to empowering all learners with the tools to succeed. Additionally, we will utilize every learning opportunity to strive for high levels of learning and student ownership. At Meridian, we believe ALL learners have the potential to achieve beyond proficiency and acknowledge growth and achievements with celebrations.

    We hope that you will find our website helpful and informative. All the information that we send out via email may also be found on our website. I will send out a monthly newsletter to the primary and secondary address listed in your PowerSchool account and a link to the newsletter as a text message. Our building health and safety plan may be found on our website. Please make sure everything is updated in PowerSchool so that you may receive updates and quick announcements as we go through the year.

    I am honored to serve as the principal of Meridian Elementary. It is truly a privilege to be a part of a community where parents, staff and students care for each other and strive to build positive relationships that support academic and social growth. Please do not hesitate to reach out to your child’s teacher or to myself at any time.


    Debbie Aholt
