STILLMAN VALLEY (WIFR) -- The District Leadership Team from Meridian CUSD 223 would like to thank everyone involved with their first Cardinal Pride Day. See their thank-you letter below.
Meridian CUSD 223 would like to express its deepest gratitude to the students, staff, and community that participated in our inaugural Cardinal Pride Day. There were over 162 participants that sacrificed their time and effort in helping the district complete important projects for the start of the school year. Some of the projects included: weeding and mulching of flower beds; painting of hallways, public areas, and exterior facilities; general clean-up and maintenance; and removal of over 6400 lbs. of scrap metal. We are very fortunate to have a community that cares how their buildings look and function as we continue to provide a first-class education and environment for our students. Meridian CUSD 223 also had local businesses donate supplies, volunteers, and equipment to complete these tasks. Thank you to Lowes Distribution Center, Valley Land Services, Behmer Seed, Byron True Value and our own Boosters who donated lunch. Thank you again and Go Cardinals!!
