2018 WAW Trip is in the books!

August 31, 2018

On August 25th, 31 students and eleven sponsors from MES/MJH enjoyed a day trip to Clinton, Oklahoma. These students completed the requirements for our William Allen White program during the 2017-18 school year.  As a reward for their dedication to the WAW program, they were treated to a fun visit to the Route 66 Museum and Water-Zoo Indoor water park.

Meade USD 226 3rd through 8th grade students have participated in this program for many years. While it is completely voluntary, if a student chooses to participate, he or she will be required to read from a pre-selected list of 10-12 books. If any of the books are deemed inappropriate for age level content etc., there are alternate books available to read. Students then test with the Accelerated Reader program and must achieve a minimum of 70% accuracy on each book. The participants that complete the program will be eligible to go on a trip the following Fall. We realize that this is a lofty goal for most 3rd graders to accomplish. Parents are encouraged to help their children. If you have questions please contact the MES/MJH Library at 873- 2671.
