5th Grade Has the Beat

While exploring Jazz music, the 5th Graders practice some cool beats on our makeshift drums. They learned the difference between a straight beat and a swinging beat. Also listening to What A Wonderful World by Louis Armstrong.

Mustang Monday Message

Mustang Family,


I hope you all had a wonderful long weekend! Next weekend you will have another long weekend as there will not be school on Monday the 28th.


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. We are excited about the many activities we have planned to celebrate literacy! We will have dress up days throughout the week and bedtime stories over Zoom. During the bedtime stories, students will have the opportunity to listen to real authors share their stories over Zoom at 7pm. For more information about these events, see the post below.


In an attempt to celebrate the good work happening in our schools and to identify areas where we can improve, we ask that you complete this anonymous survey. Thank you! Here is the link to the survey: Nebo School District Stakeholder Survey 2020-21. Our survey will close on February 28, 2022.


Thank you all for your incredible support. Best,


Principal Balli



Familia Mustang,


¡Espero que todos hayan tenido un maravilloso fin de semana largo! El próximo fin de semana tendrás otro fin de semana largo ya que no habrá clases el lunes 28.


Cada año, la escuela y la PTA realizan cada uno una recaudación de fondos. Estamos emocionados de que sea el momento de nuestra reunión anual de alfabetización, en la que esperamos promover la alfabetización para recaudar dinero para nuestra biblioteca nivelada (estos son libros especializados que usan los maestros durante la lectura guiada) y para comprar tecnología para nuestras aulas. ¡Estamos entusiasmados con las muchas actividades que hemos planeado para celebrar la alfabetización! Tendremos días de disfraces a lo largo de la semana y cuentos para dormir por Zoom. Durante los cuentos para dormir, los estudiantes tendrán la oportunidad de escuchar a autores reales compartir sus historias a través de Zoom. Para obtener más información sobre estos eventos, consulte la publicación a continuación.


En un intento de celebrar el buen trabajo que se está realizando en nuestras escuelas y de identificar las áreas en las que podemos mejorar, le pedimos que complete esta encuesta anónima. ¡Gracias! Aquí está el enlace a la encuesta: Nebo School District Stakeholder Survey 2020-21. Nuestra encuesta se cerrará el 28 de febrero de 2022.


Gracias a todos por su increíble apoyo. Mejor,


Director 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. Students will have the opportunity to collect pledges on Feb. 25-27th. 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 Feb. 28-Mar. 4. 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 March 7th , 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 cada uno una recaudación de fondos. Estamos emocionados de que sea el momento de nuestra reunión anual de alfabetización, en la que esperamos promover la alfabetización para recaudar dinero para nuestra biblioteca nivelada (estos son libros especializados que usan los maestros durante la lectura guiada) y para comprar tecnología para nuestras aulas.


El primer paso es conseguir promesas; el papel en el sobre explica este proceso. Los estudiantes tendrán la oportunidad de recolectar donaciones del 25 al 27 de febrero. Queremos mantener seguros a nuestros estudiantes haciendo que solo acudan a miembros de la familia o personas en las que confíen para obtener promesas. No queremos que los niños vayan de puerta en puerta recogiendo dinero. El resumen de lectura se llevará a cabo del 28 de febrero al 2 de marzo. 4. 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 la gente donará.


Realizaremos una subasta de canastas de regalo en línea a partir del miércoles y finalizará 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 7 de marzo, 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 para dormir leídos por los propios autores. Cada noche, un autor de libros ilustrados y un autor de libros de capítulos compartirán sus historias a través de Zoom con cualquier persona que desee participar. Se utilizará el mismo enlace de Zoom para cada sesión.

Handicap Parking

Big picture
Patrons, we would ask you to make sure you are not parking in the handicap spots unless you have a handicap parking pass. We have some patrons that really need these spots and they are often unavailable because people are using them without having a handicap parking pass. Thank you!!

PTA Corner

Our next Book Fair will be held in March from Monday, March 14 to Thursday, March 17.


Teacher Appreciation week is also fast approaching. The PTA will be celebrating our incredible faculty and staff from Monday, March 28 to Friday, April 1.


More information and sign ups to help with these events will be sent out soon.

Principal Mustang Club Winners!

New Mental Health Resource for Parents

We are pleased to offer a free and confidential website for families, ParentGuidance.org. This site was developed by licensed therapists that provides trusted and specialized courses, professional support, and a safe community for parents, to learn how to support your child.

Cold Weather Protocols

With cold weather arriving, we would encourage you to write your student's names in their gloves and jackets so that if they lose them on the playground we can return them. If you are new to our school and would like to see our winter protocols, click here.
