4th Grade Goes to the Polls

The future voters and decision-makers are in our classrooms! Meyer Prep’s 4th Grade Social Studies Class culminated their election this week with speeches for President, Vice-President, Treasurer, Secretary, and Supreme Court Justice. Everybody worked incredibly hard on their campaign posters and speeches. Each student cast their ballot in a private voting booth. The most amazing moments occurred after the winners were announced - students clapped and cheered for each other and only had positive comments for one another!

The winners for our 2020 4th Grade Election:
President: Kaia P.
Vice-President: Mika B.
Secretary: Ava L.
Treasurer: Emily L.
Supreme Court Justice(s): Gabbi R.and Caylah S.

Beautiful Collaborative Artwork for Red Ribbon Week!

During Red Ribbon week, Meyer Prep students discussed making healthy choices. In art class, lower school students created artwork for these wonderful collaborative posters showing how they take care of their bodies and make good choices for themselves. K-2nd Grade (left) students "would be nuts not to be healthy", and 3-5th Graders (right) are "drug-free superheroes"!
