That's a wrap on a full and fun year at Meadowbrook!! Thank you to everyone in this community for your participation in so many activities throughout the school year. From volunteering in the classroom and at PTG events, to your generous contributions to our annual "Fun Run" fundraiser, collectively we were able to accomplish so much, including:

  • offering $700 classroom grants for all teachers and specialists (the teachers and staff were grateful for the opportunity to enhance their classrooms in a variety of creative ways - purchasing supplies and new furniture like white board tables, adding cozy reading spaces, and more)
  • funding PBIS assemblies (the laser show) and incentives for students
  • purchasing new equipment for classrooms (wagons, fans, Cricut machine) and common areas (industrial fans for the all-purpose room, bike rack, entryway bench, recess equipment)
  • donating $2,000 to the Meadowbrook library for new books
  • holding monthly staff appreciation events from coffee carts to catered meals, and a full Staff Appreciation Week of treats in May
  • hosting a variety of fun community activities for students and their families including the Fun Run, Trunk or Treat, Bingo Nights, the Holiday Shop, the Snow Ball, the URI basketball game, Reading Week, Scholastic book fairs, Art Night, Field Day and the 2nd grade "Moving Up" ceremony
  • coordinating a variety of community service opportunities throughout the year including the annual Toys for Tots "Fill the Cruiser" event
  • offering a wide range of before- and after-school enrichment courses for students throughout the year
  • sprucing up the school grounds in the spring and fall and adding fun decor inside the school
  • producing an amazing yearbook to commemorate all of the above, and more!

We are incredibly fortunate to have such dedicated, caring teachers, staff and families who together make Meadowbrook the special school it is!! On behalf of all the PTG, thank you for all your contributions this year! We hope you have a wonderful summer!!
