Dear Meadow Brook Families,
It is with great enthusiasm that I welcome students and families to the 2016-2017 school year at Meadow Brook Elementary School. I hope you enjoyed an amazing summer filled with family fun and relaxation. I am honored to be entering my fifth 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 understand the importance of establishing positive and healthy relationships with families.
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 endless 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 Service offers 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. For more information please go to our Meadow Brook Homepage and click on the ELPS School Lunch Program.
PTO meetings take place the first Thursday of every month. Our First PTO meeting is scheduled on Thursday, September 1st at 7:00pm in the cafeteria at Meadow Brook School. Kelly Eddy is the PTO President. You can reach Kelly or any board member at MeadowBrookPTO1@gmail.com
Open House is scheduled for September 21 and 22 from 6:30-7:30pm.
Our Meadow Brook School Handbook can be found on our Meadow Brook School home page. Also found on our website is PTO minutes, school news, important dates, classroom teacher pages, and much more.
If I can ever be of assistance please do not hesitate to call or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
