The Mead School



Team Sports - Grades 3-8

The benefits of participation in team sports go well beyond the physical. Students develop confidence the more they learn about themselves and their abilities. Team sports foster leadership skills, respect for authority and rules, sportsmanship, resilience, and camaraderie among teammates, allowing them to nurture stronger friendships. For all of the above reasons, Mead strongly encourages students to participate in team sports.

Team Sports by Trimester 

Soccer is played September thru November, Basketball January thru March, and Softball April thru June. Mead's 3-5 and 6-8 teams each play against local similarly-sized schools.


Interest-based after school programs are offered each trimester for students in Kindergarten - grade 8. The majority of our programs are led by members of Mead's faculty. Programs that have been offered in the past include yoga, basketball, chess, woodworking, ceramics, cooking, movie making, improvisation, and more. After school programs offer opportunities for students to learn new skills, spend time with peers and make new friends, work even more closely with a favorite teacher, and have fun.
