MEEKER I This is an open letter from your Meeker school superintendent to Meeker’s parents, guardians, students and community members:
As implied in our district vision statement, “Excellence in All We Do.” our purpose is to instill Meeker Excellence in the students who attend our schools.

The Meeker School District exists to meet the needs of students.
We help students learn. We help them grow. We help them believe. We help them try. We do these things while providing an environment that is physically, emotionally and mentally safe for all students while also building accountability for their own behaviors.
We challenge students to pursue excellence because we know their potential and long to see them achieve success.
At times, our task is monumental, but we are rewarded with daily miracles while accomplishing this task.
We directly confront our challenges because we know it is our privilege to foster curiosity, build discipline, provide support, expect excellence, embrace diversity, conquer adversity and share joy with our students so they are prepared to become successful and contributing members of society.
We take all children, regardless of their background, and hold them to high expectations in order to maximize the success of their school experience. We do this with some students for only a few days. For others, we enjoy their presence in our buildings and classrooms for 13 years.
Regardless of the length of time students are with us, it is our opportunity, privilege and responsibility every day to positively impact the lives of the children in our care. Every moment of every hour of every day of every school year we are entrusted with the possibility, and embrace the opportunity, to instill Meeker Excellence in the life of every child.
Welcome to the Meeker School District!
