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.

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.

Please remember to dress for the weather!
Students should bring jackets or coats with them to
accommodate the ever changing Wyoming weather! Per board policy,
students will go outside for recess unless the temperature drops below
zero or the principal deems conditions to be unsafe.
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.
