NEW MP FACEBOOK GROUP
Some Meridian Park parents have started a Facebook group that is just for parents of current Meridian Park Students. This group can be used as a community bulletin board. The purpose of the group is to build community and to share information. Please do not post concerns about school staff, students or teachers on this page. This page is not affiliated with the PTSA of MPE, but it can be a place we can talk about PTSA activities.

The group can be used to learn about volunteer opportunities at the school, to make play dates, to get help from our community and to get to better know each other. Join if you like! Search for “2014-15 Meridian Park Elementary Parents (Community Group)” or use the link below:
