Gym Class Now Has Sports due to Grant

To introduce students to the socialization aspects of recreational sports, Ms. Tia Moore requested a grant from the Falls Church Education Foundation. The gym now has options such as table tennis, bocci, can jam, cornhole, and archery. The new PE activities and equipment will enable students to engage in activities that promote “lifetime recreational individual sports and outdoor pursuits.” The students are also challenged to be thinkers and problem solvers and hone their critical thinking skills.

MHS Environment Club to Collect Plastic

The Meridian Environmental Club asks the FCCPS Community to collect Plastic Film Waste and drop it off at the Meridian main entrance. 

Please help by keeping plastic out of waterways by collecting plastic film for the NexTrex Challenge — a challenge through April to collect and weigh as much plastic film trash as possible. Students are asked to set up plastic film collection spaces in their homes and bring them into collection bins at school periodically.
