Dear Meadow Brook Families,
It is with great excitement that I welcome students and families to the 2015-2016 school year at Meadow Brook Elementary School. I hope that each of you enjoyed a summer filled with family fun and relaxation. I am honored to be entering my fourth year serving as Principal of Meadow Brook Elementary School and eager to begin a partnership with you in your child’s education. As the gateway school we know how important it is to establish positive and healthy relationships with families.
Together as a staff, we collaboratively created a new vision statement for Meadow Brook School. Our Meadow Brook School vision is to become a PreK-2 school that is highly regarded for its academic excellence. Through innovative instructional approaches we will develop curious and creative learners who persevere through challenging tasks. Our students will leave prepared to achieve at high levels in a diverse and ever changing world.
Our curriculum is aligned to the MA Curriculum Frameworks with a focus on learning that leads to College and Career Readiness. Please refer to the following link to view the current Massachusetts Curriculum Frameworks.
Our dedicated and caring teachers have spent many hours this summer creating warm and inviting literacy rich classrooms for our young learners. During the first few weeks it is important for students to learn and practice the routines and procedures of the classroom and school.
Our District Food Services is offering parents the ability to manage their child’s meal account over the Internet by using PayForit.net, an online school lunch management tool. This secure website can be accessed directly at www.payforit.net. If you choose not to use PayForit.net for credit or debit card transactions, the district continues to accept cash and checks at each school cafeteria. Hot lunch for students is $2.50. A la Carte milk can be purchased for $.40. If you send cash or check in with your child please place it in a sealed envelope and write your child’s name and room number.
PTO meetings take place the first Thursday of every month. Our First PTO meeting is scheduled on Thursday, September 3rd at 7:00pm in the cafeteria at Meadow Brook School. Katie Reilly is the PTO President. PTO now has it’s own email address- email@example.com.
Open House is scheduled for September 28 and 30 from 6:30-7:30pm.
