Valentine's Day

Meadowlark took a different approach to Valentine’s Day this year. We will honor it with 5th graders by making Valentines gifts for veterans & staff at the VA. They will also make virtual valentines for children at St. Jude hospital and front line workers (doctors & nurses) at CRMC.

 

6th graders will make trauma kits for kids that are removed from the home by DFS that include student made blankets, toothbrush/paste, stuffed animals & journals.

We felt that during these tough times we may have at school, others have it tougher.

Souper Bowl


Today is the start of our Soup-er Bowl Drive where we'll have a 5th and 6th-grade canned food collection competition between January 25-29. The food doesn't necessarily have to be soup, but the pun is related to the super bowl, haha! If you wouldn't mind telling students to look at the expiration date of the cans which in turn helps us out when we donate them to the Comea Shelter. Have a wonderful day!

Rachel’s Challenge exists to equip and inspire individuals to replace acts of violence, bullying, and negativity with acts of respect, kindness, and compassion. Rachel’s Challenge is based on the life and writings of Rachel Joy Scott who was the first victim of the Columbine school shootings in 1999.

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 -


At Meadowlark, forming a partnership with each one of you will allow for the most success for our students. We look forward to a tremendous 21-22 school year. As a family we are looking forward to opportunities for learning and growth for our students. This is our 6th year, and we look forward to completing our “W” for our Meadowlark school picture.     


Again, we are being faced with some unusual circumstances. It is our goal to provide synchronous as well as asynchronous learning for students as we navigate through the year. Teachers will provide up to date Canvas pages for students who are out sick and Zoom sessions for those students who are quarantined. Our goal is to provide quality lessons to engage students in rigorous learning. Each student has had an iPad issued to them. iPad's will remain at school unless students are quarantined or if we go to Tier II/III shut down.         


Finally, communication is key to success. We at Meadowlark have an open communication policy. Please feel free to reach out to our staff with any concerns or comments.Our school goal is to ensure student learning. To achieve this goal, we must focus on providing a safe and enriching environment. As a staff we developed our Meadowlark Pledge which encompasses critical attributes to which we will hold ourselves and students accountable to ensure learning. Thank you for your continued support partnering to provide an environment that benefits all our students.
