Our Meadows PTO is hosting a first-ever t-shirt design competition for students! We're encouraging students to design t-shirts to commemorate this year. Submissions should be in by November 11. Student voting will take place the week of November 16.
SNACKS ARE BACK!
The Food & Nutrition Department has begun the process of slowly bringing back Ala Carte snack items at our Schools. These items are not part of the current free meal program so students will need to have money on their account to purchase them. Money can be deposited by visiting the Parent Portal or by sending in a check or cash with your student.
If you have any further questions please contact the Food & Nutrition Department.

POSITIVE BEHAVIOR INTERVENTION SUPPORT (PBIS) AT MEADOWS
Positive Behavior Intervention Support (PBIS) is an application of a behaviorally-based systems approach to enhance the capacity of schools, families, and communities to design effective environments that improve the link between research-validated practices and the environments in which teaching and learning occurs.
Meadows has an active committee implementing the PBIS program, and your support is essential. Together we can help our students know and uphold these expectations.
Our Meadows PBIS parent letter can be found below, along with the PRIDE Behavior Matrix, which we ask be reviewed with your child.
Lastly, we've updated our PRIDE Board for November, offering suggestions on how to practice Responsibility.
Please follow @NoviMeadows on Twitter to see our PRIDE in action.
If you have any questions, feel free to email me.
