We are busy bees when it comes to spelling!

Our 2024 spelling bee was a buzz with excitement as students from Grades 1-6 conquered round after round of intense competition in early January to vie for the top spots in their class bee. We applaud all participants who worked so hard to study their spelling words and congratulate our top place finishers! Jules Carey, G6, Tyler Smith, G5 and Safari Hanna, G6, represented our school well at the District Spelling Bee held on January 31! Tyler and Safari finished strong in 7th and 4th place respectively. Jules finished in second place and is headed to the Nationals in March. Kudos to our spellers and Head Coach, Ms. Dereal for their efforts!

  • After school clubs have continued with the same schedule as Term 1. Guitar Club has also been renewed under the direction of Grade 1 TA, Ms. Jasmine (please see flier for more information).

  • Last call for Rake 'n' Scrape classes at Meridian with Mr. Nathaniel Adams, founder of Rhythm & Youth organization! Mr. Adams has been teaching the art of rake n scrape and hand drumming for more than a decade and his bands have performed at a number of venues, including Battle for Atlantis. If you are interested in attending this after school club on Wednesdays, please contact me as a minimum of 8 students are needed to extend the group rate listed.

  • Please be reminded to abide by the uniform policy when dressing your child for school. Formal attire includes a blue school logo shirt, khaki shorts/skort, white socks, and brown shoes. On sports days, the following uniform is appropriate: a team shirt, white shorts/skorts, white socks, and tennis. On cold days, a navy blue sweater/jacket, navy blue sweatpants, or long khaki pants on formal uniform days are permitted. Students will incur points if a valid reason is not given for not wearing the right uniform. Your cooperation and support all help to create our lovely school environment.

  • Having students to school on time is integral to their success in the classroom as teachers start off with going over the agenda for the day so students are informed, recap and reinforce a previous lesson, or start a new one while they are fresh in the morning. Preschool starts promptly at 9 a.m. and Grades 1-6 & ION start at 8:30 a.m. Please ensure that your child has a great start to their day by being on time.
