Meadow Ridge Monthly
We will have two more weeks of learning in December before our break. As you can see below, we have a fun spirit week coming up. I hope everyone is able to spend quality time with friends and family and we look forward to welcoming students back in the new year!
Music Concert Info
I am so excited to share with you that music performances will be coming back so our students can show off their musical skills!!
Our first concert of the school year will be a winter concert for all 2nd and 3rd-grade students on January 25th at 6 pm in the Meadow Ridge gym. We hope that every student can come and enjoy the performing aspect of the fine arts and show off their new musical knowledge and skills!
More info will follow as we approach closer to the event, but please feel free to reach out with any pertinent questions you have!
Tree of Sharing is up and many of you have chosen tags to help support our families in need. Thank you so much. We try to make sure everyone in the home has something to open Christmas morning, and it wouldn't be possible without your generosity. There are still a few tags left, if this is something you'd like to support. Thanks to Holidays and Heroes, Yokes Fresh Market, Timberview Church, St. Joseph Catholic Church, and our own Tree of Sharing, 24 families will have a brighter, warmer Christmas this year.
And if you are someone who has a harder time during the holidays, for whatever reason, please know you are not alone. Many of us are missing loved ones, feeling frazzled and stressed, and waiting for things to slow down so we feel better. I don't have fantastic advice, but I hope there's comfort in solidarity. You are not alone in feeling this way, and no matter how good or bad a situation is, it changes.
Take care of yourselves.
Now that winter has blanketed us in a thick layer of snow, it's important to review the signs of frostbite and hypothermia. Please make sure kids are dressed appropriately for the weather. Here is a nice infographic from the CDC that reviews Hypothermia and Frostbite (CLICK HERE).
This past month we have seen cases of Influenza, RSV, and COVID in the schools. HERE is a quick review of our illness guidelines. With respiratory illnesses it is important to recognize when to seek emergency help. As always, consult your child’s primary care provider and/or seek emergency help if you have concerns.
Thank you and stay bundled up out there!
