MHS 'Feet on the Street' campaign today

MERIDIAN —     Meridian High School administrators will have their "Feet on the Street" today as they go from door to door in Meridian neighborhoods distributing information about the upcoming school year.

    MHS Principal Victor Hubbard and assistant principals Rufus Wright, Felicia Ruffin, Shevonda Truman, Shirley Mosley and Shernise Wilson will set out at 8:30 a.m., starting in the Broadmoor area. They will also go from door to door in North Hills, as well as neighborhoods near Carver Middle School and Highland Park.

    "This is a way to let our community know that we want them to be a part of Meridian High School," said Hubbard, who started the campaign when he became principal in 2010.

    "It went over so well that I wanted to continue it each year," he said. "I've found that when parents see that school officials are out in the community and petitioning their help, they will come."

    Hubbard said the Feet on the Street has built rapport between the school and community to work as a partnership for the success of the school.

    "I often say that we have got to step out of our comfort zone, and we've got to be mindful of the fact that it's about the children," he said. "Whatever we can do to insure the students are being successful at school, that's what we're going to do."

    Parents will be provided copies of school procedures.

    "We will put our procedures in our parents hands so they will know the expectations of the children when they arrive to school Day 1," Hubbard said.

    In addition to Feet on the Street, Meridian High School will host its Open House on Aug. 4, from 2 p.m.-5 p.m. Student schedules will be available at this time.

    School begins for the Meridian Public School District on Aug. 6.
