Mary McPherson Families
Thank you for participating in our Jogathon fundraiser! We have been overwhelmed by the generosity of our families and community! So far we have raised $17,900 for our school!!! We will be receiving a new backstop for kickball games at recess, and two more soccer goals for the new west field. We appreciate your support! A special thank you to our amazing PTO for planning and organizing the event!

Notes From Nurse Bonnie
We are excited to offer Mary McPherson students an option for dental cleaning services. West Ada School District and the Family Medical Residency of Idaho have teamed together to open a pediatric dental clinic serving children in the West Ada School District that do not have Medicaid or private dental insurance. The clinic is located on the Meridian Elementary School campus. It offers no cost dental cleanings to qualifying students.
October 15, the Meridian Schools Clinic has reserved appointments for Mary McPherson students. If your student has no dental insurance and you would like to schedule a no cost dental cleaning for your student, please contact the Meridian Schools Clinic at 208-514-2527. If have any questions, please contact our school nurse Bonnie Hamilton.
Lost and Found
I am seeing a lot of kids sporting their new Mary McPherson sweatshirts. These are very difficult for students to tell apart in the lost and found. Please make sure to put initials or names so we can return them to their rightful owners.
If your student is missing something, encourage them to check the lost and found. Parents are always welcome to stop by and take a look. Our lost and found is located just past the office on the left side of the hall.
