All families are encouraged to attend, regardless of what school zone they live in.

Donations Requested

The Meigs Middle School Beta Club is organizing a Warm Blankets for Winter Feet Donation to benefit many animals who have either been recently misplaced or are awaiting adoption in our local community shelters.  This time of year, the lower temperatures often mean a higher population of adoptable animals who need basic provisions to remain healthy.  We would greatly appreciate your donations of any gently used or extra blankets that could be delivered to animals this winter. Please ask your students to drop off any items they would like to donate to either room 26 (Mrs. Nibert's room) or to the guidance office.
