What is "Family Time" at Green Meadows?

Family time is something new and exciting at Green Meadows. Family take time place once a month for about a half hour or so and gives students across grade levels an opportunity to pair up, visit one another's classrooms, get to know one another, and spend time doing fun things like sharing learning and forming friendships. Our "bigs' and "littles" really enjoy this. At our first meeting, students shared about their families, activities they like to do, favorite foods, and things they enjoy about school. Take a look at some of our photos that captured the beginnings of many new friendships and classroom pairings for this year.

Retirement Wishes for Mrs. Maconi

Mrs. Maconi is a Reading Specialist who has worked in the Hampden-Wilbraham Regional School District for 15 years. She has worked at Green Meadows helping students to strengthen their reading skills. She has also been an amazing colleague and resource to staff. We will certainly miss the many years of experience, dedication, and expertise that Mrs. Maconi has brought to Green Meadows. We wish her all the best as she heads into retirement. Be sure to send along your well wishes. Her last working day is Friday, October 5th. Congrats Mrs. Maconi. Onward and upward into your retirement!

And...Retirement Wishes for Mrs. Dodd

Mrs. Dodd is new to Green Meadows this year but she has worked At TWB as a paraprofessional for 25 years. It has been so nice to have her at Green Meadows. She has been able to spend her final few months in the same school as her granddaughters. Best of luck to you Mrs. Dodd! We wish you many wonderful days ahead. Wish we had a photo to share!
