Meadow View Staff Appreciation Week 

Meadow View has a tradition of combining Classified Appreciation Week and Teacher Appreciation Week into one amazing week where we celebrate all Meadow View staff. This week we’ve been celebrating our incredible team. I am proud of the work happening at Meadow View. Thank you Meadow View staff for teaching, inspiring, celebrating, challenging and encouraging our students. Meadow View is a great place to learn and grow.

I need to offer another SHOUT OUT to our PTO and parents who served a fabulous lunch to our Meadow View staff yesterday. The theme was, “Teachers give us the world”. There was food from around the world and delicious sweet treats. Our PTO decorated the halls at school with thank you signs in over 20 different languages and hung posters with pictures from countries around the world. I love the welcoming international theme. Thank you PTO for celebrating Meadow View staff!

 

Ems Homerun Reading Challenge at Meadow View 

Sluggo and Eugene Ems staff kicked off a fun reading incentive program at Meadow View. The Homerun Reading Challenge was introduced during an assembly to our kindergarten through 4th grade students. Sluggo and the Ems staff did an interactive performance of the baseball poem Sluggo’s Hit (based off the poem Megan’s Hit by Vee Bdosa). Students received information on how to earn tickets to an Ems game by simply reading! Each of our K-4 teachers will share specific grade level goals that students will need to meet to earn tickets to a game. In addition to the student’s two free tickets to an Emeralds game, students who come early to their game will have the chance to go onto the field and meet the Emeralds players! Look for more information in Tuesday folders.

 

Our school is excited to be partnering with Ophelia’s Place to offer a Parent Technology Night on Thursday April 26th from 6-7 in the South Media Center at Meadow View.

During this presentation, Ophelia’s Place staff will be providing information on digital technology and how it impacts youth, tips for parents in creating safe space for children and teens and encouraging critical thinking skills to help youth navigate their digital decisions.

Ophelia’s Place is a nonprofit, prevention-based organization dedicated to helping girls make healthy life choices through empowerment, education, and support. In their work with schools, Ophelia’s Place provides co-ed classroom presentations, with a focus around reducing peer aggression, building media literacy skills, bolstering positive body image, and fostering healthy relationships. Ophelia’s Place also provides professional training for educators and parent education opportunities on a variety of topics.

Positive Behavior Recess Incentive

Thank you to State Farm and Mike Tingue, Meadow View parent, for supporting our positive behavior efforts. For the past two weeks, our K-4 students have been earning cloth bracelets for following expectations and helping friends during lunch and recess. The grade with the most bracelets earned music and popsicles at recess. This week our 3rd graders won the challenge with 193 bracelets! We’ll continue our challenge until the end of the year.

Meadow View Update

Sebastian Bolden, Meadow View Assistant Principal, has accepted a Principal position at Spring Creek Elementary School in the Eugene 4J School District.  He will start his new position in the fall of 2018. Sebastian has been a strong instructional leader, positive role model for students and a tremendous support to staff, students and families. While we are sad to see Sebastian leave Bethel, we are excited for his new leadership role and know he’ll do an amazing job serving the Spring Creek community. This change does leave us with an opening that must be filled. Our Meadow View team is committed to finding a strong leader, if you have feedback on the qualities and experiences you’d like to see in an Assistant Principal please contact me at erika.case@bethel.k12.or.us or call 541-607-9700. District office will open the position widely and we will post as soon as possible.

 

Our March Madness staff vs. student basketball game was so much fun!  Thank you to staff, 8th grade students, and the many parent volunteers who helped make the event a success.  And, thank you to our Meadow View families that came to cheer on the teams and support our 8th grade end-of-year events. 

 

 

 

A big thank you to our Meadow View parent volunteers for waking up bright and early to prepare popcorn for our monthly popcorn day. We appreciate you! 

 

 

 

 

Our 6th-8th graders had an awesome Pep assembly today. Several students showcased their talents. We enjoyed singing, dancing, drumming, and a Jazzercise flash mob. Students earned paper plate awards and played silly games. This was a great way to end the week and celebrate our spirit day. Thank you to our amazing mid school team for planning the assembly  

 

 

 

Today our K-1 students participated in an EWEB  Discovery Lab. The lab had hands-on activities designed to teach water and energy related concepts. It was a ton of fun! A special thank you to 1st grade teacher, Edica Liebl, and EWEB Coordinator, Cathy Bechen, for organizing the event. Another big thanks to our parent volunteers. We couldn’t do it without you.

Meadow View News

Dear Meadow View Families,

With 775 students it’s fun to try to catch up with all the celebrations going on in our classrooms. Just this week we’ve celebrated March Madness (staff vs. student basketball game), 6-8 Pep Assembly, and a Pro-Power Paw week. As a school and a district we have been trying to make sure that when we celebrate, all children are able to take part in the fun. We have been discussing this at the district and school levels, and have acknowledged that if we can better recognize long-held traditions while celebrating with students in ways that include all Meadow View children, then we want to do that. We’ve created a Q&A to better address the questions that came up last month. If you have ideas on how we can create inclusive celebrations at Meadow View, feel free to contact me.

At Meadow View this Fall, more than 10% of our K-5 students were identified as having dental needs. On April 2nd and 3rd, Dental hygienists from Community Health Centers of Lane County will be applying fluoride varnish at school to students that have a signed parental consent. Some students who need dental sealants will also receive them on one of these days.

  • Can my child receive a fluoride varnish application if they take prescription fluoride and have fluoride at the dentist office?   Yes
  • If my child received varnish at school last Fall or Spring, do I need to sign another consent form?  No, the consent you signed is good for 2 years.
