Meadow Creek Friday Flyer
May 6, 2016
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!
Students in grades 3, 4, 5 and 6 will be taking STAAR tests next week. Monday, May 9, Tuesday, May 10 and Wednesday, May 11 we will have a closed campus. Parents and family members will not be able to join their student for lunch and we will not be able to have volunteers in the building on these three days.
We hope that our students will get a good night's rest, eat a healthy breakfast and arrive to school in plenty of time to have a smooth start to their school day.
We are very proud of our students and we know that they will do their very best on these days. We appreciate your help throughout the year!

Pardon The Mess
Meadow Creek Parents, Teachers and Students:
Don't forget to bring used markers and highlighters of all brands to school for recycling through the ColorCycle program!
Please be sure to drop any old marker in one of the bins in the classroom or the large container in the office as you clean out your supplies at the end of the year. 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.
