CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR 2021 MEEKER GRADUATES & MCOW AMBASSADORS Marina Blank, Tuscany Brown Reed, Christian Montemayor,
Lavinia Rubatino, Ryder Sawyer, and Addison Schultz —
We are so very proud of you for this wonderful accomplishment! Congratulations to you (and your parents) on this very important milestone!
We wish you all the best as you move on to high school. We know you will continue to make us proud! We are so grateful that you were part of Meeker Middle School and MCOW, and we hope you will hold onto many incredible memories and friendships from your NZ experience!
THANK YOU MEEKER & TPS
The end of the school year is traditionally a time for us to recognize our partnership with Meeker Middle School & Tacoma Public Schools (TPS). Without the support of Meeker staff and approval of TPS and the School Board, we wouldn't be able to host the Kiwi students in September or send our Student Ambassadors to NZ in February. Although the pandemic forced us to cancel the program this year, we know it will be back. SPECIAL THANKS to Meeker staff including Principal Patrick Kjack, Assistant Principal James Van Stralen, Chloe Eklof, Micah Haven, Kate Kuravackal, Cathy Maui’a, Sally McHugh, Sue McMonigal, Rodney Olson, Carrie Splinter, Craig Warren, and Lindy Wells-Nicholes. SPECIAL THANKS also to TPS Superintendent Carla Santorno, TPS Deputy Superintendent Josh Garcia, TPS Office of Student Life, TPS Secondary Education, TPS Legal Department, and TPS School Board. We look forward to our continued partnership in 2022 and beyond!
TO OUR COMMUNITY
This school year has been strange and difficult, unusual in every way. As it comes to an end, we are grateful to see the public health metrics improving very significantly! We’re also thankful to all those who helped us get through it and make the most of it! We know we can bounce back.
To all the Meeker Middle School staff, students, and our friends in the MCOW community, we hope you have a safe & fun summer!
MCOW Board of Directors
