SAVE THE DATE
Youth Safety Information Night
District-Wide Parent Night
Wednesday, February 25, 2015
6:00-8:30pm
Birchland Park Middle School-Cafetorium

This is an informational evening for our community to join us in raising awareness and providing education on the growing issue of substance abuse and addiction.  Massachusetts is in a public health emergency with the opioid related overdoses and deaths.  In the past two years, this community has had 6 overdose deaths and many overdoses that were saved using Narcan.  Recent high school surveys reported the use of heroin.  It's here and we need start working towards prevention and providing help and resources to those suffering.  Recently our Superintendent and Town Council signed a letter of intent with the Springfield Department of Health and Human Services to begin collaborating on substance abuse prevention.  Our Opioid Education and Awareness Committee has been working for months to organize this evening and we need your help in getting the word out to parents and the community.   Please take the time to view the following video on LCAT and help us by doing the following at your schools!  We need your support!  

Once you access this link you will need to scroll down and find the video called "Opioid Abuse Panel".

Dear Meadow Brook Families,

It is with great excitement that I welcome students and families to the 2014-2015 school year at Meadow Brook Elementary School! I would also like to welcome our new Assistant Principal, Renee Lodi. I hope that each of you enjoyed a summer filled with family fun and relaxation. I am honored to serve as the 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.

As the Early Childhood Center for the East Longmeadow Public Schools, our vision is to provide a safe, nurturing environment that promotes the cognitive, physical, social and emotional development of young children.  The professional staff is expected to recognize and respond to the needs of each individual student.

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.

  http://www.doe.mass.edu/frameworks/current.html

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.

This year each student in our full day programs will receive student ID badges to be used to purchase lunch. Food Service is encouraging families to deposit funds to open up their student’s account. Cash or checks payable to East Longmeadow School Lunch will be accepted. The price of lunch remains at $2.00. A la Carte milk can be purchased for $.40. When 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 4th at 7:00pm in the cafeteria at Meadow Brook School.  Katie Reilly is the PTO President. PTO now has it’s own email address- mbpto@eastlongmeadowma.gov.

Open House is scheduled for Sept 22 and 23 from 6:30-7:30pm.

Welcome to Meadow Brook School!


Meadow Brook School serves East Longmeadow students in preschool through second grade in a nurturing child centered environment.  At Meadow Brook, we feel that reaching children where they are functioning-academically, socially, emotionally, and physically-is critical to their development.  We offer a challenging curriculum that is aligned with the Massachusetts State Frameworks and the national standards as well as special subjects such as Physical Education, Art, and Music. Students are also scheduled for the Computer Lab and Library each week.  We also have a comprehensive special education program as well as gifted and talented education. Dr. Faith Wint, our teacher in the gifted and talented program, supports our history and science curriculum and plans units of study with the department heads for grades one and two.

We currently have 4 sections of preschool, 2 sections of half day kindergarten, 7 sections of a tuition based full day kindergarten program, 8 sections each of first grade and 8 sections of second grade.  All of our classes are taught by certified and highly qualified staff.  We also have two full time guidance counselors, Trey Cushman and Betsy Sheehan, who assist students with their social, emotional, and academic development.  

For more information about our school, please continue to browse through our site or call us at
