Plan Ahead for a Successful Start!
Step One: Register
In-person registration will be on August 3rd and 4th from 8am to 3pm at Mears. Please enter the building by the flag poles.
Online registration will be available on July 15th. Use Q Parent Connect if the student is already enrolled in ASD. The office staff at Mears will be available by phone to reset PIN numbers and passwords for Q Parent Connect. Contact them at 742-6400 on or after July 15th.
Step Two: Sign up for Panther Camp
What is Panther Camp? Panther Camp is a half-day opportunity for kids to become more familiar with Mears and the most stressful parts of the first week of school. Activities such as opening their locker, finding all of their classrooms, procedures in the locker rooms, signing up for sports, extra curricular activities, what to do once you reach the lunchroom, and more are covered during Panther Camp.
Use the Panther Camp link above to find dates, times, schedule, and registration forms.
Step Three: Determine your Bus Route
To determine your child's bus route please go to the district Transportation page. Enter your address and wait for the map.
Step Four: Teams
A team is a group of core teachers who share the same 135 students. This creates a smaller learning community for students, allows collaboration of curriculum units, and it gives teachers the ability to analyze and discuss data on their shared students. The theme for team names this school year is: glaciers. Visit the Teams page for a list of team names, team colors, teacher's names, and glacier locations. Most students can determine which team they are on using the name of their science teacher, there are some exceptions. Tentative schedules should be available in Q Student Connect after August 11th.
Step Five: School Supplies
Supply lists for the 2021-2022 school year have not yet been determined. Once school starts students can access supply lists through their Canvas account specific to each class.
Step Six: Sports and Activities
All intramural and interscholastic sports require a health exam with form and a participation form. Interscholastic sports have a fee. Look on the Sports page for a list of what sports are available at Mears, when they will occur, if they are interscholastic or intramural, and if any additional forms are needed.
Step Seven: Come to School!
The first day of school is August 17th, we can't wait to see you!
