FALL INTO READING (MBMS Library)

Be sure to put library books on hold this week so that you have them for over break!

Go to your Canvas Library Course to access the catalog. Select the "Library Catalog" button on the Home Page and begin searching through the collection. Students can put up to 5 books on hold. Pick ups will be on Tuesdays 8-3 and Wednesdays 8-2 only. A cart will be placed at the front of the school with your books! There will also be a cart to return any overdue books as well. Here is a quick tutorial video (See attached flyer)

Community of Kindness Lessons

We have officially rolled out our school-wide monthly Community of Kindness (CK) lessons. Meadowbrook is proud to continue the valuable work that started over ten years ago to allow all staff & students a time to discuss, interact & focus on building up the positive and kind community that we have. This year’s focus is Connections. The first 2-day lesson in advisory this last week discussed the purpose of our CK lessons, the importance of connections and offer different opportunities to get involved such as 6th grade mustang leader lead lunch bunch zooms and a pledge to continue our No Place for Hate community campaign. We hope you take the opportunity to ask your student about the monthly Community of Kindness lessons and activities.

Ordering Pictures from Picture Day

Our picture days were a huge success! It is easy to purchase your school picture packages using the information on the attached flyer. We apologize but Lifetouch was not able to upload a proof of your student's photo. If you purchase school photos, it will be the photo that was printed on your student’s ID Card. Last day to order your pictures is November 19th.
