Good Evening Meadows Families,


This week, please join us for our PTSA associates meeting. Learn about the calendar of events that we have planned for this school year and how you can get involved. Also, we will have two important dates for you to note for later this month. On September 24th and 25th, we will have outdoor picture day and a distribution of important math materials and other items. We will send out more information this week so parents can plan to arrive at their assigned picture time. And, thank you to Mr. Waymire and Ms.Rutkowski, our election has concluded. We thank you for dedicating the next three years to Meadows Elementary School Site Council with our teachers and staff. And, don't forget that today is the last day to order your spirit gear.


Thank you,


Dr. Juliet Fine

Meadows Foundation Thanks You!

Valencia Meadows Elementary Foundation would like to send a huge thank you to those who participated in our Apex and Popcornopolis fundraisers last year. Those funds allow us to continue our ongoing programs and expenses during this difficult and uncertain year. Below is a flyer showing what the Foundation was able to fund in the 2019-2020 school year because of your past support. We hope you will continue to partner with us this school year, so we may continue providing enrichment and technology to our children in the 2021-2022 school year. Together, we can take learning to new heights!
