About SDM

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.
