The mission of Sally D. Meadows Elementary is to educate the total child by incorporating interactive experiences designed for the diverse needs of learners. In a positive environment where students, staff, and parents are enthusiastic about the teaching/learning process, students will strive to meet or exceed standards necessary to become productive, responsible community members.
Sally D. Meadows Elementary opened in the fall of 1964. Meadows Elementary was named for one of Vidalia's most prominent early citizens. New construction was completed in the spring of 2010. We now serve grades two through five in our building of sixty-five new or renovated classrooms. Our facility includes four grade level wings, five computer labs, a gym, music room, cafeteria, administrative suite, and media center.
