Mustang Monday Message

Mustang Family,


Last week we had so much fun as a school celebrating literacy! We loved seeing you during our nightly Zoom sessions with authors and at our Parents and Pastries...thank you for your support!


We have two days left of our literacy Week! Tonight and tomorrow night we will continue our bedtime stories with authors at 7 and 7:30 (Zoom Link). On Wednesday morning the auction for our book baskets will end at 9 AM. If you would like to consider bidding for a basket, here is the link.


Today (at 8 PM) is the last day to order yearbooks. Yearbooks are 60 pages of fully colored pictures and they cost $10 each. To order, go to YBPay.lifetouch.com and use the ID code: 13488121. Yearbooks will not be available to purchase in the office.


We would also like to remind you, and gently beg:), to register your students for next school year as soon as possible. Our school is growing and so the sooner we know our enrollment numbers, the better teachers we will be able to hire if needed. There are registration instructions below.


End of year testing has, or will, begin soon. We have found that students typically do much better with their testing, when they test with their class. Teachers should be sending a schedule home with their testing times, so that you know when those dates will be. This testing data will be very helpful to us next year as we determine the needs of each student.


Thank you all for your incredible support! Best,


Principal Balli

Mensaje del lunes de Mustang

Familia Mustang,


¡La semana pasada nos divertimos mucho como escuela celebrando la alfabetización! Nos encantó verte durante nuestras sesiones nocturnas de Zoom con los autores y en nuestros padres y pasteles ... ¡gracias por tu apoyo!


¡Nos quedan dos días de nuestra semana de alfabetización! Esta noche y mañana por la noche continuaremos con nuestros cuentos antes de dormir con los autores a las 7 y 7:30 (Zoom Link). El miércoles por la mañana, la subasta de nuestras canastas de libros terminará a las 9 am. Si desea considerar hacer una oferta por una canasta, aquí está el enlace.


Hoy (a las 8 pm) es el último día para ordenar anuarios. Los anuarios tienen 60 páginas de dibujos a todo color y cuestan $ 10 cada uno. Para ordenar, vaya a YBPay.lifetouch.com y use el código de identificación: 13488121. Los anuarios no estarán disponibles para comprar en la oficina.


También nos gustaría recordarle, y le suplicamos amablemente :), que registre a sus estudiantes para el próximo año escolar lo antes posible. Nuestra escuela está creciendo y, por lo tanto, cuanto antes sepamos nuestros números de inscripción, mejores maestros podremos contratar si es necesario. Hay instrucciones de registro a continuación.


Las pruebas de fin de año han comenzado, o comenzarán pronto. Hemos descubierto que a los estudiantes les suele ir mucho mejor con sus exámenes, cuando lo hacen con su clase. Los maestros deben enviar un horario a casa con los horarios de los exámenes, para que sepa cuándo serán esas fechas. Estos datos de las pruebas serán de gran ayuda para nosotros el próximo año mientras determinamos las necesidades de cada estudiante.



¡Gracias a todos por su increíble apoyo! Mejor,


Principal Balli

Literacy Round-Up Fundraiser Information

Each year, the school and PTA each hold one fundraiser. We are excited that it is time for our annual Literacy Round-Up, in which we hope to promote literacy to collect money for our Leveled Library (these are specialty books teachers use during guided reading) and to purchase technology for our classrooms.


The first step is to get pledges; the paper on the envelope explains this process. Student will have the opportunity to collect pledges on April 12th -13th. We want to keep our students safe by only having them go to family members or people that they trust for pledges. We do not want children going door to door collecting money. The Reading Roundup will take place April 14th-20th. During this time students will track the amount of minutes they read each day on the calendar provided. The minutes will be calculated to determine the amount of money people will donate.


We will be holding an online gift basket auction starting on Wednesday and ending next Tuesday (a link will be sent through email and on social media!). Get excited, we have some fun book themed baskets!


Beginning Wednesday, the 21st, we will begin accepting donations. ALL DONATIONS can be paid by CASH, CHECK (placed in attached envelop), or online in the iCampus Portal under the section “Fees.”


Literacy Bedtime Stories

Due to COVID, we are unable to hold our annual Literacy Night at Meadow Brook. However, we are very excited to announce that we will be replacing this with nightly Bedtime Stories read by the authors themselves. Each night a picture book author and a chapter book author will share their stories through Zoom with anyone that would like to participate. The same Zoom link will be utilized for each session. https://nebo-edu.zoom.us/j/81385705970?pwd=TmR6bGhlQnYreWU2RDFqU0NZTHFzdz09

Resumen de lectura de Meadow Brook Información para la recaudación de fondos

Cada año, la escuela y la PTA realizan una recaudación de fondos. Estamos entusiasmados de que sea el momento de nuestra ronda anual de alfabetización, en la que esperamos promover la alfabetización para recaudar dinero para nuestra biblioteca nivelada (estos son libros especializados que los maestros usan durante la lectura guiada) y para comprar tecnología para nuestras aulas.


El primer paso es conseguir promesas; el papel del sobre explica este proceso. El estudiante tendrá la oportunidad de recolectar promesas del 12 al 13 de abril. Queremos mantener seguros a nuestros estudiantes haciéndolos acudir solo a miembros de la familia o personas en las que confían para obtener promesas. No queremos que los niños vayan de puerta en puerta recogiendo dinero. El resumen de lectura se llevará a cabo del 14 al 20 de abril. Durante este tiempo, los estudiantes registrarán la cantidad de minutos que leen cada día en el calendario provisto. Los minutos se calcularán para determinar la cantidad de dinero que donará la gente.


Llevaremos a cabo una subasta de canastas de regalo en línea a partir del miércoles y que terminará el próximo martes (¡se enviará un enlace por correo electrónico y en las redes sociales!). ¡Anímate, tenemos algunas canastas divertidas con temas de libros!


A partir del miércoles 21 comenzaremos a aceptar donaciones. TODAS LAS DONACIONES se pueden pagar en EFECTIVO, CHEQUE (colocado en el sobre adjunto) o en línea en el Portal iCampus en la sección "Tarifas".


Cuentos de alfabetización para dormir

Debido a COVID, no podemos realizar nuestra Noche de Alfabetización anual en Meadow Brook. Sin embargo, estamos muy emocionados de anunciar que reemplazaremos esto con Cuentos nocturnos leídos por los propios autores. Cada noche, un autor de un libro de imágenes y un autor de un libro de capítulos compartirán sus historias a través de Zoom con cualquiera que desee participar. Se utilizará el mismo enlace de Zoom para cada sesión.

Tabitha's Way Book Drive

Tabitha’s Way would like to invite us to participate in a new event called Read & Feed which will take place on Saturday, May 15, 2021.


The purpose of this event is to encourage children to continue to read during the summer and to educate families facing food insecurity regarding food resources available to them and their children while they are not attending school. There goal is to gather 10,000 gently used books that children can take home with them and keep to read during the summer.


The children who come to the event will receive a tote bag and will be able to pick out up to 10 books to read during the summer months. During the event, Tabitha’s Way will also hand out Summer Feeding Vouchers to guide families to utilize the free food resources at our pantry. Additionally, they will provide information regarding other ways and means to access free food assistance and reading programs, such as Feeding in the Park and city library reading programs within the Nebo School District.


There is a temporary green book donation bin outside of our main entrance that will be outside of Meadow Brook during the month of April for any that would like to donate gently used books that they no longer need.The book donations should meet the same guidelines schools follow, meaning they need to receive books that are appropriate for children between the ages of 0-15 and that are not political or faith-specific. Thank you!
