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

Greetings Meadowlark Families -

The LCSD #1 Adapted Learning Plan was recently approved by the Wyoming Department of Education. This officially marks the beginning of our Remote Learning Plan at our school due to the closure of schools in light of the Corona Virus Epidemic. However, we have been anticipating this since March 13th and began putting together pieces of a remote learning plan due to the closure of schools across Wyoming in mid-March. Below are phases that have taken place and forthcoming steps. You will receive a handout that will outline the process beginning on April 6th, 2020.

Phase 1 Essentials (Week of Mar. 16-20)

·       Parents were contacted and given opportunities to retrieve essential items such as medications, heavy winter coats, and glasses.

Phase 2 Re-connection Week/Essential Materials/Tools (Week of Mar. 23-27)

·       Teachers reestablished lines of communication with families to identify the most effective methods of communication.

·       Parents retrieve materials, and essential supplies.

Phase 3 Remote Learning (Beginning Apr. 6)

·       Please read the Meadowlark Remote Learning Plan found in the link on our front page.

·       E-learning: Please follow your teacher’s online instruction. The lessons will be content specific in ELA and Math with some integrated science and social studies content when applicable.

·       Paper Packet Learning: If online learning is not possible in your situation, please complete paper packets provided for each grade level.

·       To avoid any confusion, only the parents of students without access to online leaning need to collect and return learning packets as described above. If your student has online learning access, please follow teacher instructions through e-learning methods.

·       Student materials that were not retrieved prior to April 6th will be available from the hours of 8 AM – 12 PM on Monday – Thursdays.

o   Direct phone calls (2-way communication)

If you need to visit with me, please reach out to my direct e-mail at james.fraley@laramie1.org I will have office hours on Mon-Thurs. from 8:00-12:00 and will be able to reach back out to your contact through a variety of means. I will be holding weekly meetings with a variety of teams on my staff and can certainly communicate any needs to them.

Please be safe and continue to move forward under these circumstances. I know our team at Meadowlark has worked hard to lay the foundation for learning and has the best interest in educating your children during these difficult times.

Sincerely,

 

Jim Fraley
