Meadow View School
Meadow View Park and Stride
Let’s build community, get some exercise and decrease the congestion in the parking lot by trying out the use of Park and Stride. Park and Stride is the practice of parking close to your destination and walking the rest of the way. Bethel Park is a great opportunity for a Park and Stride. You can enter from Haviture Way or Legacy, drop off your kids, and they can follow the sidewalk right to the school! Starting April 16th, we will be encouraging the use of Park and Stride and will gear up for Walk and Bike to School Day on May 7th.
Our Cosmos fundraiser has been a huge success. We have sold out of our donated supply. Please return funds to Meadow View by April 18th. Thank you for your support.
Please use the attached flyer for Papa’s Pizza today (April 9th) to help a Meadow View family with a medical fundraiser. The fundraiser is for Isaac Jackson, an incredible member of our Meadow View community as well as a loving husband and father of four. He has been diagnosed with liver cancer and is in desperate need of a transplant. Simply print off the flyer and take it to Papa’s Pizza Parlor on Coburg Rd. and the family will receive 50% of the food purchased today.
In addition to today’s fundraiser, there will be a Benefit Concert and Silent Auction on April 25th at 7 p.m. at Willamette Christian Center, 2500 W 18th Ave. Eugene, OR 97402. Tickets will be $15. Thank you for your support!
Meadow View Fundraiser
We have an exciting opportunity here at Meadow to bring technology into our classrooms. Cosmos Creations, the company that brings us those delightful premium puffed corn has donated 2,000 bags of their delicious snacks for us to sell at 100% profit. Your child has the opportunity to sell each bag for $4 to help us toward our $8,000 goal for classroom improvement. The money raised will go directly toward buying a COW (Computers On Wheels) cart containing 40 iPad minis for our school. To make this fundraiser successful we need your help! Please return your permission slips.
Meadow View teachers earned $4,000 from Kendall for field trips. Congratulations to our contest winners Laurie Aley, Denise Meinardus, Andrea Woods and Jason Simpson. In addition to field trip money, Meadow View was also awarded $2,000 through a quarterly Drive for Education points contest. Thank you Kendall Auto Group for your Drive for Education program.
Spring Break is just one week, March 24-28. School will resume March 31st. The District was able to restore the week after Spring Break, which was originally scheduled to be a budget reduction week. We’ll see you again on Monday the 31st.
