Camera On Challenge!
Calling all Students: Your Mustang Leaders are asking you to join them in the "Camera On Challenge" We all know our teachers miss seeing the faces of their students and students across the country are challenging each other to turn their cameras on. Our focus is the week of March 8th. There will be a video explaining the challenge to students with a survey to sign up for the challenge on their Homeroom Advisory page.
Jersey Mike Fundraiser!
Join us for dinner at Jersey Mike's on Pomerado and Scripps Poway Wed 2/24 from 3PM - 9PM to help raise money for the Meadowbrook Educational Foundation.
Attendance on Self- Sustained Learning (Asynchronous) Days
As a reminder, when students are working on self-sustained learning days, attendance is based on students logging onto Canvas. Students will be marked present when they log into each teacher’s Canvas class between the hours of 8:20am and 2:35pm. Students with 8th period have until 3:30 to log onto Canvas. As a parent, you can create a Canvas account and view each of your child’s classes. If you would like to check your child’s absence report in Parent Vue please watch this video.
Do you want to get your child more involved with positive student activities at MBMS? Student clubs are forming now! We have everything from Book club and Art club to Yoga club and even a Harry Potter club. There is sure to be something for everyone, and new clubs can be formed at anytime. This is a great way to get your child connecting with other like-minded students at Meadowbrook. Students can learn more by following the link in their Homeroom/Advisory Canvas course.
