Message from the Meadows
...a weekly update from Mrs. Battaglia
Principal's Message - 10/6/23
Happy Friday, South Meadows' Families,
What a beautiful week of weather we had! Of course, the switch from cool to hot again left us with many wonderful items on our lost and found table! We will remind students to look, but you may want to as well! You can also stop in and check the tables yourself:)
We are excited about next week's Bulldog Jog! Thank you for supporting PTO by collecting pledges with your child!

Updates and Information
Thank you so much for helping us have a safe, efficient and smooth end of day dismissal process. A couple reminders: Please remember to pull ALL the WAY forward whenever there is a gap; and keep in mind that staff may hold students from approaching a vehicle to move the line up. Above all else, please use patience and kindness in the pick up lines. Thank you.
School Safety Drill
As mentioned last week, we provided our students with their annual school safety lessons last week. This morning we held our first School Safety Drill to practice and discuss what a potential safety situation could look like.
Help Support Chelsea Education Foundation!!
Chelsea vs. Dexter Annual Rivalry Match Fundraiser
Did you know that the Chelsea Education Foundation's biggest fundraiser of the year is a friendly competition with Dexter? Since the first rivalry fundraiser in 2019, the two foundations have raised more than $154,000 for teacher grants and scholarships in our communities. Last year, CEF brought home the victory, raising $50,072 to EFD's $47,679!! Help CEF win again, and support even more of the grants that allow our teachers to dream big, by donating at the link below. The winner will be announced during the Chelsea/Dexter football game on October 20. Go Bulldogs!! Click here to support: CEF 2023 Rivalry Match
Annual BESS Screener
In an effort to proactively meet the needs of the whole child, we will be conducting our annual social-emotional screener for all students. Teachers will be completing the screener for students in grades Y5-8. Students in grades 5-12 will be completing the student self screener between 10/16-10/27. For more information on the screener, click here. Please contact your child’s building principal with additional questions. If you would like to opt your child out of the screener for the 2023-2024 school year, please fill out this form prior to October 9th.
