Meadowlark staff and students forming letter O

Greetings Meadowlark Families -

We have kicked off our 5th school year, as you can see with the "O" in Mead-O-wlark! The start has been unusual but fulfilling at the same time. We are very excited to have students and staff in our building and learning again at high "Flyer" levels!

We have opened under orders from Governor Gordon, the Laramie County Health Dept., and the LCSD#1 school board due to the Covid-19 pandemic. You are able to read about our plan in the bullet to the right of this page on our website. Our students, staff, and parents have made a tremendous effort to manage such change to our operations so we can hold school in a face to face manner.

The data for our school improvement plan show slightly lower scores than the previous year in math and reading, as expected due to the remote learning that took place last March. However, we will design instruction and interventions around these essential standards close the gaps made by last year's anomaly, or break from traditional instruction. Another piece of our plan is to become more responsive to the needs presented to us. Therefore, we will dedicate time during instruction to the integration of technology in all content areas. If we were to ever move to a Tier III shutdown of schools again, we will be more prepared.

A key to this is to have technology ready for students to use and be able to access the curriculum along with high quality instruction. We will introduce iPads this November for all students to use as part of their learning. With these we will be able to introduce a platform along with hardware to keep students making progress toward their learning targets.
