Senior Walk.  Today the students from Meadowbrook who are graduating from high school next week came to Meadowbrook in their graduation gowns and parade walked all the hallways as Pomp and Circumstance played on the PA system.  All of our students and teachers and even retired teachers lined the hallways and cheered, clapped and high fived the seniors.  Then the seniors spent some time on the playground with some of our students and posed for a photo on the slides just like they did when they were leaving sixth grade six years ago.  It was a powerful and wonderful experience. The seniors loved seeing the kids, teachers and changes that have happened since they were here. The little ones were so impressed by the giant seniors and their gowns. Teachers had tears in their eyes. It was amazing!


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.


Summer Math Review books.  If you would like to purchase any of the Everyday Mathematics Skills Link books for your child to work on their math skills over the summer please see the blue flyer that went home today.  You may also check out the link.  This is for students who currently finished grades 1-6.
