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.
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.

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.
