How do we get our kids reading?


Make it a routine - whether it's right before the breakfast, or right before bed, set aside a special time every day.



What’s “Just Right”? Children feel confident and competent when they read books that are “just right.” But how do you find a “just right” book? Have your child read the back and front cover, and the first page of the book. If there are more than five words that he cannot pronounce or understand in context, the book may be too challenging. Be supportive about finding a more perfect fit. Choosing the right book will help your little reader feel successful.

GRIT Tickets

The staff at Meadow Brook are looking for students who have GRIT. We will be giving the student a "GRIT Ticket" to acknowledge their excellent behavior. Then, the student's name will go in a monthly drawing during our GRIT Assembly.
