Meridian's yearbook publisher is making Augmented Reality available to its customers. Meridian Moments decided...

    Snap! The past week, journalism students have been taking pictures and videos of seniors for the yearbook to fit into this DNA helix. "Seniors felt awkward about filming the videos because it was something new," said Mrs. Moore, Meridian Moments yearbook sponsor.

    Meridian drama is an outlet for many students to be involved in theatre, but for those Meridian students who just can't get enough of being on stage, many decide to perform in the Decatur Park District's PERFORM program. "It's like family almost. You know almost everyone there and there's always...

    Take a bow! Meridian students involved in PERFORM take their bows after a performance of Seussical. Many students decide to do the program in addition to the school's show, sometimes even at the same time. "Seussical will always hold a special place in my heart," says Ian Carnahan.

    Biology sophomore students will take a trip to Willow Branch Conservation Area on April 10. Mr. Cloe, biology teacher, says that since the juniors will be taking the SAT on the same day and won't be in class, he "wanted to have them [the sophomores] do something." The conservation area is located...

    On April 10, Mr. Cloe's sophomore biology students will experience, first hand, what they have learned throughout the year as well as the jobs within biology. A free field trip to show students the different jobs in the science fields was offered to Meridian's biology class and the school accepted it. "I feel excited to see what job opportunities are in the field of biology," said Erica Corzine.

    On March 18, 2018, a group of people rallied in front of the Law Enforcement Center in downtown Decatur for their 2nd Amendment rights. This comes after the proposal of four separate bills in Illinois' Congress that if passed would put heavier restrictions on guns. Many of the participants held...

    "Gun-free zone=free kill zone," David Martin joins others on Franklin Street in Decatur in support of the Second Amendment. The rally lasted two hours. Martin supports the Second Amendment because, "the more it's being infringed, the less freedom we have."
