Meadow View School
Supporting Positive Behavior
Students in 4th and 5th grades may begin to face peer pressure, stress, time management, or issues making friends and being a leader. To help, Meadow View will host a performance of the Kaiser Permanente Educational Theatre Program, “Pressure Point,” next Tuesday, April 21st.
The play is an interactive, fun discussion that offers students real-time opportunities to practice healthy decision-making. More info about the theatre program is available at http://etpnorthwest.org/.

For spring pictures, Lifetouch only photographs students who are buying packages; so be certain to send your ordering information or receipt if you want to order pictures. The only exception to this is our eighth graders. ALL eighth graders will be photographed for their end of year departure certificates as well as the class photo.
If you are interested in ordering a class photo for your eighth grader to commemorate their last year at Meadow View, these pictures are pre-pay only. Order forms were sent home with students, additional forms are available in the office.
Please note, there is no re-take day for Spring pictures.

Pre-register your incoming Kindergartener
Kindergarten orientation at Meadow View was a huge success last week. It was a great opportunity to meet our incoming students and families. If you missed orientation and have a kindergartener for the 2015-2016 school year, please come by and pick up a pre-registration packet. We literally have dozens of families from throughout Eugene hoping to attend Meadow View through Open Enrollment. In order to accurately project how many students we can accept, we need to first account for the families within our Meadow View boundary. Please encourage neighbors and friends to pre-register now.
Thank you for your continued support to make our Cosmos fundraiser a success. Last year we were able to purchase 80 Ipads. They are currently being used on a daily basis in many of our classrooms. This year we will continue to enhance technology at Meadow View through this fundraiser. All money from sold product is due by February 25, 2015.
