Welcome to Mrs. Meiries' second grade class!


I know this will be a very positive year for your child.  We will be doing and experiencing many exciting activities throughout the year.  I am pleased to take this opportunity to introduce myself to you and to welcome your child to my class.  My name is Candice Meiries and I have been teaching since 1998.  I feel that teaching is the most important job I can do, other than being a wife and mother.  I have made Henderson my home for the past 13 years.  This is my third year teaching at McCaw Elementary School and I enjoy being a part of this family.  A good learning experience is built on a cooperative effort among parent, child, and teacher.  I look forward to the work and growth we will all accomplish this year.   

My expectations for conduct and academic standards are high.  With your participation both in and out of the classroom, we can look forward to a productive, creative, and enjoyable year together.  In the past, I have had many parents volunteer their time in the classroom, and I encourage this because it provides opportunities for more children to receive personal attention.  If you are interested in volunteering, please let me know.  This can be done on a weekly, bi-weekly, or occasional basis.  Any help you can give will be warmly appreciated. 

The school and I are supply the basic essentials that you need to start the school year.  Many families enjoy purchasing their own supplies.  Please visit the school website at for supply suggestions. 

Again, welcome!  Please feel free to contact me about any questions or concerns you may have.  My classroom door is always open, and messages can be left for me with our wonderful office personnel, to which I will respond as soon as possible.  The phone number is 799-8930.  You can also email me with concerns and questions at
