Cocoa & Cram Event on Tuesday, Jan 26
One tradition at Meadowdale High School is that near the end of First Semester we host an event known as Cocoa and Cram. This event is aimed at helping freshmen end their semester on a strong note and be successful on their upcoming finals. We have had to modify our annual event this year to a digital meeting, but we still want to make sure that we are doing all we can to help your student find success at the end of their first semester of high school.
With that in mind, Cocoa and Cram will be held on Tuesday, January 26 from 6:00-8:00. The evening will start with a meeting amongst each Link Group at 6:00. Information about this Zoom meeting will be coming directly from Link Leaders in the next day, A number of teachers have made review, and extra credit, materials available for 9th Grade Students as a part of Cocoa and Cram, and these materials will be shared with each Link Group during this time. Next, from 6:45-8:00 there will be peer tutors and National Honor Society members available to offer help on any subjects and/or assignments that your 9th Grader may be struggling with. Your student could also take this time to work individually on the provided review assignments or work on preparing for their upcoming finals.
A note on Finals Week: This year will have a non-traditional finals week and will not use a modified schedule. That being said, classes may offer a culminating activity/project/test/quiz that your student will need to prepare for. Some of these will be offered in-class and some may be offered asynchronously.

Young, Gifted, and Black (presented by the Univ of Washington)
Young, Gifted, and Black utilizes African American history and culture in such a way that motivates and empowers attendees to take control of their future. This conference is to promote positive self-esteem, social consciousness, and cultural awareness, while simultaneously emphasizing the importance of higher education. We hope that the workshops and interactions with current African American UW students, staff, and faculty and the community will provide both the resources and role models to help students make a commitment to pursue higher education. This is a wonderful opportunity to experience the UW and discover all the possibilities awaiting African American high school students with a 3.0 or higher GPA.

Power Outages and Snow Days!
SNOW DAYS: As a result of being in remote learning, we are much better equipped to deal with inclement weather (think snow, ice, etc.) than when we were in a full face-to-face learning environment. We anticipate days when snowy or icy weather might require the district to operate on a late start schedule or close, school can still take place. Sorry kids!
Well Child Care Note from the School Nurse
Well-child care is important even during a pandemic. Checkups are valuable for growth, development, early detection, immunizations, behavior support, and learning success! Many clinics have adapted visits to keep patients safe during the pandemic. If you need help connecting with a primary health clinic, don't hesitate to contact the school nurse SHERMIN DAVIDSON at DAVIDSONS837@edmonds.wednet.edu or (425) 431-3072.
