Women in History Comes to Meadows on 3/3 and the Week of 3/9

We are very excited for our annual Women in History program at Meadows. Every year the AAUW (American Association of University Women) select six prestigious women to recognize for their outstanding achievements and contributions to society. This program is a long standing tradition at Meadows and across 12 other local schools in the Santa Clarita Valley. Our parent volunteers have been very busy learning their parts and will don their costumes as they present these important figures to our classrooms. Thank you Emily Verdi, Kira Barlow, Genny Wilson, Lisa Howard, Richelle Boyd, and Alec Isbell-Torres for volunteering your time with this program.
