Meadow Creek’s mission is to promote learning by challenging all to reach their potential

in a safe, nurturing environment by communicating, collaborating and congratulating!

APEX Fun Run Collections

The Apex Fun Run pledges are now due! If you have not sent in your money, please do so as soon as possible! We have collected about 80% of the pledges so far and our goal is to have 100%.


Thank you again for all of your support of our Meadow Creek PTA!

Valentine's Day Classroom Parties

Our classroom Valentine's Day parties will be on Friday, February 12 at 2:00.


If you are planning to attend the parties, please be sure that you have completed an on-line HEB background check. You can do this by going to the HEB ISD Home Page and click on the link to Volunteers. The process takes about 8 minutes to complete and when you are done, you will get a volunteer ID number. Background checks are good for one from the last date you completed it. By having your background check completed, it will make signing in on the day of the party go much faster!

First Grade Valentine Show

Our fabulous first grade students will present a delightful Valentine's Day show on Tuesday, February 9 at 6:30 PM. Parents, family and friends are invited to this very special performance!

Spirit Night at CiCi's

Stop by CiCi's Pizza for fun, food and friends. CiCi's will support our PTA by giving back a portion of the profits from the sales on Wednesday, February 10. We hope to see you there!

Meadow Creek PTA Meeting

Please join us for our next Meadow Creek PTA Meeting on Thursday, February 11at 6:00 pm. Come and learn what all the Apex Fun Run was all about and see the way that Apex incorporated leadership and positive character traits into their message every day.


PTA will provide a light dinner at 6:00 with the business meeting to follow. We hope you will be there!

All Pro Dad Breakfast - Date Change!

Our next All Pro Dads' Breakfast is Friday, February 12 at 7:00 AM. All Dads, Uncles, Grandfathers, Stepdad and other important people are invited to join your child at this event. It is a special time to spend together and it gives you a chance to meet other Meadow Creek families! See you Friday for breakfast!

Notes from the Nurse

Parents:

Because your child’s safety is our top priority, let me clarify the HEB guidelines for outdoor activity during cold weather. We understand the importance of physical activity for our students. “However, it is recommended that certain activities be limited or revised during those times when negative health or safety consequences are most likely to occur.” The HEB Guidelines for Cold Weather are as follows:

  • Students should not play outside when the temperature or wind chill drops below 36 degrees.

  • Wind chill is the apparent air temperature felt on EXPOSED SKIN due to air.

  • On days when the temperature is unseasonably cold, outside time should be restricted to 15 minutes.

  • Students who are inappropriately dressed for the cooler weather should remain indoors.

    Due to the guidelines from the district, students are not allowed outside wearing shorts or without a jacket if the temperature (actual or wind chill) is below 50 degrees. Please be sure your children are dressed appropriately for the weather so they are not required to stay indoors on these days.

2016-2017 Transfer Forms and Spanish Immersion Applications

The window to turn in forms for a transfer to another HEB school is January 4 through February 29. This is the same window that we accept applications for our Spanish Immersion program that begins in first grade. If you have any questions about these processes, please contact us at 817-354-3500.


We hope that our kindergarten families will consider the Spanish Immersion program next year in first grade. It is an excellent Schools of Choice program. Meadow Creek is one of three HEB schools to offer Spanish Immersion. The program starts in first grade and continues through sixth grade. Students are taught in Spanish and experience the language through immersion. It is amazing to see how quickly the students learn to understand, speak and read in first grade! You are invited to a District Spanish Immersion Information Meeting to get more information about this program on Monday, February 8 at 6:30 PM at Meadow Creek.


HEB offers other Schools of Choice programs such as Suzuki String and World Languages. If you are interested in one of these programs at another HEB school, be sure to complete a transfer form and submit it to the campus that you are wanting to attend before February 29.
