Meadow Creek Friday Flyer

January 8

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!

Happy New Year

We hope you had a wonderful holiday break and that 2016 has started out with hopes and good wishes for a fantastic year!

Thank you Meadow Creek PTA!

Thank you to Meadow Creek and our families for the wonderful shade structure for our playgrounds. They were installed over the holidays and they look fantastic. This will be a nice addition to our very warm weather days to help keep that area of the playground cooler for our students.

Thank you again for your support of our PTA!

Friday, January 15 and Monday, January 18

Friday, January 15 is a noon dismissal day. It is the last day of our first semester! Please be sure that you have made arrangements for your children to be picked up at noon. The staff will be in training during the afternoon.

Monday, January 18 is a student holiday.

We will have Extended Day on Friday, January 15 but it will not be open on January 18.

Meadow Creek is in the news!

Be sure to go the HEB webpage and click on the link to a new HEB magazine. Meadow Creek has spotlight pages. It shares lots of the great things about Meadow Creek that makes us remarkable! We have a couple of copies of the actual magazine in the office for you to look at!

2016-2017 Transfer Forms and Spanish Immersion Applications

The window to turn in forms for a transfer to another HEB school is January 4 through February 29. This is the same window that we accept applications for our Spanish Immersion program that begins in first grade. If you have any questions about these processes, please contact us at 817-354-3500.

We hope that our kindergarten families will consider the Spanish Immersion program next year in first grade. It is an excellent Schools of Choice program. Meadow Creek is one of three HEB schools to offer Spanish Immersion. The program starts in first grade and continues through sixth grade. Students are taught in Spanish and experience the language through immersion. It is amazing to see how quickly the students learn to understand, speak and read in first grade! Please contact us if you would like more information!

APEX Fun Run is Coming!

Meadow Creek PTA APEX Fun Run is almost here! This is a great program that promotes fitness and leadership and will also be a PTA fundraiser. The students will love all of the fun that this event will bring. Our date for the Apex Fun Run is January 28. Students will be getting more information about the fun event soon and ways to encourage people to sponsor each lap they run. The students, the teachers and the PTA will all benefit from every lap that is sponsored. PTA will be looking for parent volunteers so get your running shoes ready!

Meadow Creek Teacher of the Year

Meadow Creek's Teacher of the Year is Mrs. Cristina Roberts, Kindergarten teacher. Mrs. Roberts was selected by the teachers at Meadow Creek to represent us for HEB ISD District Teacher of the Year. We are excited to have Mrs. Roberts represent us, especially since she is a former Meadow Creek Dolphin herself!

Lost and Found

We already have many, many coats, hoodies, lunchboxes and more in our lost and found. Please be sure to put your child's name inside any item that they bring to school. The lost and found is located in the cafeteria so if an item goes missing, please encourage your children to look there and hopefully find their item!!

Spelling Bee Champion

Congratulations to our Spelling Bee Champion Avery Harris and to our Runner Ups Daniel Eambovornchai and Kamryn Taylor.
