A NOTE FROM DR. COFFMAN

We did it! This is the last week of the year! This year was different, it encouraged flexibility, and enhanced our ability to navigate change, but we did it! It takes a village, and Meadow has the absolute best community, children, and people. We are thankful for your support, encouragement, and openness to all of the adjustments as we navigated this far from normal year. Our faculty and staff did a phenomenal job ensuring safety, normalcy, and support to all children. Our staff is absolutely amazing and we are blessed to have such wonderful people dedicated to student success.


We would like to give a HUGE shout-out to our PTO! Thank you all for going above and beyond for our students and staff. You make our school a better place and are always looking for ways to help. Thank you for all the food, snacks, field trips, and joy you bring to our campus!


A few additional important pieces of information:


We have our awards ceremony on Wednesday the 26th. Please make sure to check for communication from your children's teachers.


Please make sure all library books are turned in tomorrow. We must have the books turned into the library or money paid. If a student does not return book(s) or pay for lost books, they will not participate in field day on Thursday the 27th.


Transfer applications are due by June 18th.


Pick up any medication from the nurse's office before the end of school.

Nuestra facultad y personal hicieron un trabajo fenomenal asegurando seguridad, normalidad y apoyo a todos los niños. Nuestro personal es absolutamente asombroso y tenemos la bendición de tener personas tan maravillosas dedicadas al éxito de los estudiantes.

  • On Tuesday, May 25th, 4th grade will have a water play day! No swimsuits, only shorts and t-shirts please. Please send a towel, a change of clothes and sunscreen so we don’t have any sunburns. PTO is providing water guns and ice cream for us.
  • Math has brought us some very challenging classroom escape problems. The students have been busy trying to put escaped puppies back into their crates…via math questions. I’ve had complaints of it being hard to which I respond that is why it is called a “CHALLENGE”! LOL
  • In Science we are studying life cycles. We are observing mealworms and how they go through complete metamorphosis.
  • ALL library books are due back Friday, May 21st. Please ask your child where their library books are and if they have turned them in. Thank you!

Thanks,

Mrs. Bell
