Founders Day


Our first ever Founders Day is Saturday, September 16 at 10 a.m. Join us rain or shine for this fun filled event. This event will now be inside the Mays Middle School building. Don't worry, the dunk tank is still on.


Join us at Meridian School’s inaugural Founders Day on Saturday, September 16. Founders Day celebrates the founders, families, and staff who came together more than a decade ago to create a K-12 International Baccalaureate charter school in Central Texas.


The Founders Day Festival will be from 10 a.m. - noon. We’ll kick off the festival with celebratory talks from Meridian’s Founder & CEO, Karalei Nunn, as well as remarks from local officials. You’ll get a chance to check out activities and see historical photos. 


Bring cash or your card and shop to support our 8th grade entrepreneurs at the Makers Fair as they raise money for their class trip in October. More than 40 students have been working hard on their business plans and creating their goodies! It’s great holiday/gift shopping.
