All the money raised from the walk-a-thon is used for MP students. Volunteers are needed before to set up the water station, after and during the event to help monitor students. If interested, please contact Aissa Quezada at aissa.quezada or Matt Alford at matt.alford.

OUR FUN FALL SCHOLASTIC BOOK FAIR IS COMING SOON!
The book fair will run Wednesday through Friday, October 8th – 10th, 8:40 – 4:00 daily, during the student day as well as during parent-teacher conferences.
Please plan to stop by and support Meridian Park. All book fair profits benefit all Meridian Park students through new book purchases and special literacy events.
In order to have a successful book fair, we are seeking volunteers. If you would like to work a one- or two-hour shift, please contact Jenny Hillger at jenny.hillger. Volunteering at the book fair is a great way to meet a lot of MP kids, see all of the new books, and meet other MP parents.
Thanks! Jenny Hillger, Meridian Park Teacher~Librarian, jenny.hillger
