No Place for Hate
We are so grateful and proud of our school & community's efforts to help create a safe, inclusive and equitable Community of Kindness at Meadowbrook. We are proud to announce that Meadowbrook has been redesignated a No Place for Hate (NPFH) school for the 2020 to 2021 school year. Special shout out to our Equity Team for your tireless time and courageous conversations, teachers, for facilitating the Advisory NPFH lessons through out the year, and families who attended and shared feedback at our No Place for Hate Parent Focus groups. Last but not least, thank you to our students, who make Meadowbrook the NPFH Community of Kindness that it is!

Bottled Water Donations Needed
Meadowbrook families, as the temperatures outside continue to rise and our students are actively involved in P.E., we are asking for any donations of cases of water. Our water bottle filling stations continue to be turned on, however many students are forgetting to bring water to school. We would like to be able to provide bottled water to students. Donations will be accepted at the front office from 8am – 3pm Monday – Friday. Thank you in advance for your generosity.
