Mindset Matters Time

Across the district we are introducing the 7 Mindsets. The 7 Mindsets approach is based on the premise that success depends less on what a person knows, and much more significantly on how he or she thinks. These mindsets provide the foundation for resilience, motivation, and meaning in life. By making small shifts in the way someone views the world and his or her future in it, we help create a positive and sustainable transformation.

Tell me something good!

We love to recognize and share the wonderful things going on around Meadow Brook. If you have something we should share feel free to email gibletj@mustangps.org and we can add it to this section.

GRIT Tickets

The staff at Meadow Brook are looking for students who have GRIT. We will be giving the student a "GRIT Ticket" to acknowledge their excellent behavior. Then, the student's name will go in a monthly drawing to win a PTSO snack coupon. Winners will be announced at our GRIT Assembly.
