Week 8, Last Week of Distance Learning

Good Evening Meadows Families,


This week concludes Distance Learning for all of our Meadows' students. If you have not filled out the "Start of 2020-2021 School Year" survey, here is the link. Please remember that we know that the current situation is fluid and you are not locked into your response. Thank to all of the families that have participated!


Starting on Monday, June 8th, we will begin passing out personal belongings to students and collecting borrowed laptops, charging cords, hotspots, library books and textbooks.


Orchestra and band students will return their borrowed instruments to Wiley Canyon Elementary School on June 9th anytime from 12pm-3pm.


Be safe. Be well. And, thank you for your commitment and patience.


Juliet Fine

Principal of Meadows

Message from Our Student Council President, Ryder Boyd to Our 6th Grade Students

I was honored to be your student council president and I’m really sorry that our year was interrupted. However, we had a great 6th grade year. Nonetheless, we will be stronger and more excited than any kids have probably ever been to start junior high school. None of us know what our "new normal" will be, but here’s what I’m sure of…


We are all in this together. We are missing our friends and some important school events, which is a pretty big deal right now. But someday this will all be a memory, a part history, in our journey. We will eventually be back together and we will have so many more marvelous adventures in junior high and beyond.


I would like to take a moment to thank all of the teachers and staff at Meadows for always understanding that we are all working very hard at learning and trying to become great human beings. But along that journey we sometimes make mistakes. Having teachers and principals who guide and correct you with kindness, compassion, and patience really makes that journey easier.


As we say goodbye to being little kids, and begin our transition into young adulthood, let's take a minute to reflect on our time here at Meadows Elementary School. This is where we've learned, grown, made friends, and lifetime memories. So let's cherish our moments at Meadows and hold them close to our hearts forever. Maybe we cannot celebrate together, but that is okay, because we are a family and nothing will ever change that. So remember this quarantine won’t define our 6th grade class of 2020, but it will just make our story a little bit more interesting.

Can’t wait to see you all in junior high!


Your Student Council President and Friend,

Ryder Boyd

Parent Corner -Free Resources and a Virtual Summer Camp

If you are looking for activities for your children, Mrs. Libby Carson, our school counselor found this free virtual “camp” with 5 weeks of activities for K-8 students created in partnership with National PTA. Camp Kinda is designed to keep kids engaged, curious, and having fun—even if they're stuck at home. It's like summer camp... kinda. See this link-https://campkinda.org/. With this resource, there are 3-4 hours’ worth of activities each day, all connected to a weekly theme.
