Please join us for "Coffee with the Principal" this Tuesday, 5/26 at 9:30am and/ or 6:00pm to ask any questions you may have. We will discuss the close of our school year.


Orchestra and band students will return their borrowed instruments to Wiley Canyon Elementary School on June 9th anytime from 12pm-3pm.

6th Grade Promotion and Celebration

All of our 6th grade families have received information outlining the 6th grade promotion and celebration.


As a school, we are looking forward to celebrating our students' last year in elementary school over the next few weeks. As you know, we are having to alter our usual plans for the Promotion and End-of-Year celebrations.


For our 6th graders, the 6th grade teachers have organized a few projects including but not limited to a promotion video. The 6th graders have fundraised money through Popcornopolis and will be donating these funds to either a charitable children's organization or a legacy gift for Meadows Elementary School. These funds are usually put towards the cost of the promotion ceremony and other celebratory activities.


And, lastly, on Monday, 6/8, there will be a 6th Grade Drive-Through Celebration where the the front of the school will be decorated in honor of our students. They will be able to pick up theirs and any siblings personal belongings, student projects, and promotional materials (and will return borrowed laptops, charging cords, hotspots, textbooks and school library books). Our students will be greeted with celebratory messages.


We look forward to honoring our students and celebrating this special time in their lives with them.
