Summer Time.  Have a safe and fun summer with your wonderful children. Thank you for sharing them with us.  To our families who are moving to junior high school, or moving away, best wishes for continued school successes. Thank you to all the grownups for the countless hours you have volunteered. 



Report Cards will be finished early next week and sent to the district office to be mailed to homes by the end of the week. If there are two addresses, two report cards have been printed and addressed. CogAT results were included if your child took that test. Preliminary MCA results are in Infinite Campus and actual results will be available in the fall.



Meadowbrook Office Summer Hours. Meadowbrook is hosting Kids and Co this summer and will be open all except around the Fourth of July.  I will be here most days also.



Thank You PTO!!!  Thank you for the field trips, artists in residence, Art Adventure, room parties, room parents, special events and all the wonderful help and support you have given our students and teachers this year.



Run Meadowbrook Run.  Thank you to everyone who participated and volunteered at Run Meadowbrook Run!  We had 495 registered participants and the morning was enjoyed by all!  This week Miss Elsen's 6th graders and Miss Ruess' Kindergarteners enjoyed donated lunches for having the highest participation (Thank you Urban Sub and Davanni's). 


School Supplies with School Tool Box.  Our online store is now open for parents to purchase school supplies for the 2019-2020 school year. A flyer with more information was sent home with all K-5 students this week. In addition, there will be a link to on the Meadowbrook website all summer long. It takes just a few minutes for parents to order online and supplies are sent to your home. Every purchase helps Meadowbrook PTO.  Make sure to choose Meadowbrook Elementary School in Golden Valley, MN for the school name.
