Volunteers in Partnership News

All parents are included and you are automatically a member! We work together as volunteers to support our school community.
Thank You

Our annual Holiday Cookie and Dessert buffet was a huge hit yesterday and we owe it all to you. Our teachers and staff were able to select a yummy treat (or two) to enjoy or take home to their families. Thank you to all who baked, donated, and helped with delivery and set up. We couldn't have done it without you. Don't forget to log your hours below!

"I actually set an alarm to go first thing so I could have dibs!" - Stela Holcombe, HS Assistant Principal

Another big thank you to the families who have volunteered all semester to help care for our chickens. They have received a lot of love and attention from so many and are staying healthy. We will continue to need some parent help on weekends next semester and will be working to create a handbook for our school. If you are interested in helping with either of those you can reach out to Lynda Chapel at l.chapel@mwschool.org.
Spirit Wear
Spirit wear is here and will be ready to be distributed this week. On campus students will have theirs sent home with them by Thursday. Distance learners who placed orders may pick their items up at the campus office for the student listed on the order (typically oldest student) on either Wednesday or Thursday. Staff will not be on campus Friday for pick-ups. So don’t forget!!
Primary Winter Celebrations
Reminder that the Primary winter celebrations will take place on Thursday, December 17. If you signed up to donate something, please drop it off or send it in with your student by tomorrow. Any perishable items like pre-made hot cocoa can be delivered the morning of the 17th. Thank you to all for helping to make this a success!
Free Giving
Looking for easy ways to help raise money for our school? These are a couple of partnerships and programs that donate back to Meridian. Please consider participating in either or both!

AMAZON SMILE - Meridian received $487.87 this quarter!

Simply visit smile.amazon.com and log in using your regular Amazon.com email and password. From there, select International Academy Williamson County as the charitable organization you would like to support. AmazonSmile will save that information and will make a donation every time you purchase through smile.amazon.com
