My family and I moved from Florida to Austin in 2014, and then to Round Rock in 2016. That year, both of my daughters (then in second and sixth grade) received the news that their names were drawn in the lottery to attend Meridian! Since they attended an IB magnet school in Florida, it was a seamless transition for them both.
As for me, this is my third year on the VIP Leadership team. I have served as Middle and High School Representative, and this year I hold the position of Secretary.
I was asked why I spend so much of my time volunteering by a friend recently. First and foremost, I volunteer because I enjoy it. Perhaps more importantly, I believe that we, as parents, lead by example. My hope is that my children one day follow in my footsteps by volunteering their time and talents.
Putting in time by volunteering at Meridian not only improves our school, but it is also a great way to make friends and get plugged in!
