The yearbook staff is asking for your photos! Have you captured a shareable moment on your phone or camera from an MP event, field trip, or classroom activity? You can email it directly to We will be collecting photos all year for our 2018-2019 yearbook.

Come check out the awesome new Box Tops for Education box in our Meridian Park lobby, and keep turning in those pink & white Box Tops! Each one earns money for Meridian Park. No Box Tops at your house? No problem! Ask family, friends, and neighbors if they have any they might be willing to give. A big thank you to Rory, Nathan, and all of the other amazing Cheetahs who have been turning in theirs!
