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

ColorCycle!

Meadow Creek Parents, Teachers and Students: Thank you for bringing used markers and highlighters of all brands to school for recycling through the ColorCycle program!


Please continue to do so after spring break. We are keeping THOUSANDS of dry and wet erase markers, highlighters, and regular markers out of the trash stream this way! Feel free to contact me with any questions about the program.

Daylight Savings Times Begins!

Don't forget to set your clocks an hour ahead on Saturday night.


Daylight Savings Time begins on Sunday, March 13!

3rd Grade Wax Museum

Our third grade students will come alive with history at our very own Meadow Creek Wax Museum. Third grade students have researched an important person and will become that person at our Wax Museum, Thursday, March 24 from 6:00 PM to 7:00 PM.

STAAR Testing Days

Tuesday, March 29 will be a STAAR testing day for 4th grade and 5th grade.


Wednesday, March 30 will be a STAAR testing day for 5th grade.


On STAAR testing days we will not have visitors on campus. Please look for another day to join your child for lunch. Thank you!

Time Change!

Next year for the 2016-2017 school year, all elementary schools will begin their day 10 minutes earlier. Our school day will begin at 7:50 AM and end at 3:00 PM.


Now would be a good time to begin new morning routines so that when we start school next year, everyone will already be used to the new times!
