Dear Students and Parents,
I am pleased to announce that Meadowlark Elementary is participating in the SUMMER READING PROGRAM sponsored by the Wyoming Association of Elementary and Middle School Principals. This program is intended to promote continued reading during the summer months. I am sure you realize the importance of reading to maintain skills that have been learned during the school year. Reading is also a superb way of broadening and enriching your child’s world.

In an effort to simplify I am asking that you do two things:
1. Together as students and parents select good books to read regularly during the summer, visit the library often, and do all you can to promote reading as one activity that can be fun during the summer. In short, make books and time available for reading during the summer. Students who do not yet read may count the time that they listen while others read to them.
2. Keep an accurate record of the number of minutes spent in reading this summer and return that record at the beginning of the school year. The record sheet is provided under Meadowlark resources for your convenience.

Students who participate and read during the summer will receive a beautiful certificate of participation. Other prizes may be given for high achievement at the beginning of the school year.

I encourage all parents and students to participate in this program and have an enjoyable time discovering the wonders that exist within the cover of a good book. I believe this is a good program for young people and support it wholeheartedly.

Sincerely,
James Fraley
Principal, Meadowlark Elementary

Welcome to Meadowlark Elementary, where We Facilitate Innovative Education for Today’s Learners.  This school is a 5th and 6th grade elementary and a unique state of the art facility, built in 2016. 

A staple of Meadowlark each year will focus on activities that build our community, where students and staff learn about each other and learn how to work together to achieve success.  Our motto is to Be Positive, Be Purposeful, Be Passionate!

We will focus on two types of goals each year. One goal will be to create a culture unlike any other in our district where collaboration and collective efficacy are at the forefront of everything we do. 

Another  goal is to focus on academic achievement results.  This goal will be measured using our STAR, and WY-TOPP assessment results in reading and math.  Three specific action activities to help accomplish this goal are:

  • Planning and employing a common curriculum for all learners.
  • Implementing highly engaging and rigorous instructional design to prepare students for the next level.
  • Providing feedback to parents & students in more meaningful and constructive ways.

You can contact me at 307-771-2260 if you have any questions or concerns about Meadowlark Elementary.  I will do my best to help resolve them. You can also find many of our events and progress on this webpage. Please follow us on the new SchoolWay app designed to streamline communication efforts from Meadowlark to all stakeholders.
