Meadow View School
Meadow View Parents,
As a reassurance that our school is safe and secure, Eugene police are providing an increased presence around all Bethel schools today. Please understand that this is just a precaution suggested by the Eugene Police Department.
Our Meadow View counselors are also available to address any emotional issues in the wake of yesterday’s event in Roseburg. And as always you can contact me with any questions or concerns.

K-5 Playworks at Meadow View
Has your child come home and talked about “rocking-it-out” at school? Rocking it out is part of our new playworks program. Students have learned to problem solve by using rock, paper, scissors/ “rock-it-out” when situations arise at recess. Playworks provides structured recess games for students to play. Playworks is a national non-profit, that supports schools to incorporate healthy, inclusive play into our school day – every day, for every student. Playworks will help equip our staff and community with the tools needed to create a positive recess experience for every one of our students. By shifting behavior on the playground, we expect to see more positive student engagement, more fun play opportunities and reduced negative interactions so that our students can return to the classroom ready to learn. Our Recess Team, composed of teachers and recess aides, will use a brand of games designed to promote inclusion. Additionally our team will apply new group management techniques to teach students how to play well together, resolve conflicts, and develop leadership skills. Playworks trainers will return to our school to observe recess and give us feedback so that we can have the best possible recess for our students.

Meadow View is off to a fantastic start! We are incredibly excited about the energy and enthusiasm from the first week of school. The first few days of school students reviewed school expectations and routines and participated in community-building classroom activities. We also welcomed our first full day kindergarten class. Kindergarteners attended Kindergarten Camp, a full day of activities that allowed students to get to know each other and learn what kindergarten is all about. At the close of the second week of school, students and teachers are immersed in learning.
Last year, Bethel schools implemented new programs in Reading and Math K-8 and this year we have added new Social Studies curricula. Bethel has also began implementing Playworks, a K-5 recess program designed to create structure on the playground through organized games and routines as well as promoting physical activity.
Save the date for Curriculum Night on Tuesday, September 29th from 6:30-7:30 to learn more about what your child will learn and experience this year at Meadow View.
Please join us for our First PTO meeting of the year on Wednesday, September 23, from 6-7 pm. Come learn about partnership opportunities inside and outside of the classroom.
