Meadow Creek Monday Message
Meadow Creek’s mission is to promote learning by challenging all to reach their potential
in a safe, nurturing environment by communicating, collaborating and congratulating!
Chapter 3: Engage for Positive Climate
These are the five actions you can take to create a positive climate and give every student a chance to learn in your classroom.
1. Raise the bar
2. Manage mind-body states
3. Establish "we are family"
4. Sustain emotional positivity
5. Teach positive social and emotional responses
From Engaging Students with Poverty in Mind by Eric Jensen
Thank you to the Champions of Chapter 3! Think about what we learned from this chapter and see what you can use this week to help your students!
Save our Copier!
The small copier is for just a few copies, 5 to be exact, it is not built to make multiple copies of class sets. Be sure to use Stephanie. She is quick and helpful, if you get your copies turned in at least 24 hours a head of time.
Please do not use the small copier to make copies for your entire class. If you have an emergency, leave it with Peggy, Diane or Doreen and we will get it copied for you.
HJH Band and Choir
Friday will be pajama day!
We will have Harmony perform for us in the gym on Friday at 9:45. Santa is scheduled to arrive by helicopter at 11:40. We will get you a map of the general location for your grade level to stand outside on the playground. We will have a rain plan just in case!
We will have a different lunch and recess schedule on Friday so that everyone can have time for Santa and lunch!
Meadow Creek Faculty Christmas Party
PTA Dessert Extravaganza!
We need to be taking attendance on your computer twice a day, once at 8:15 and the second one at 9:45. The 9:45 attendance is the official submission so be sure you are doing it at 9:45, even if nothing has changed from the 8:15 submission.
Thank you for keeping your web page updated on your home page and on your MOOSE weekly assignment pages. This is another way to provide customer service and to make great first impressions with potential families!
Be sure you are traveling with your students in the hallways at all times. Your presence alone will reinforce the CHAMPS behavior that we expect of all students.
