Meadow View School
Project M.A.H.I.T.A – Murals Aiding Health Information To All
Mahita means “to see” in the Malagasy language, spoken on the island nation of Madagascar. Meadow View 3rd grade students are working on the creation of a mural with an important health message that will be shipped to Madagascar and displayed by Malagasy health education in a rural village. This important mural will convey information visually that teaches an important message or skill. This project not only benefits the children of Madagascar but Meadow View students gain a global perspective while making a meaningful connection and artistic contribution to a rural community in Madagascar. Stay tuned for more about this important ongoing project! Learn more by visiting: http://coriehinton.wix.com/mahita

Highlights from Author Deborah Hopkinson’s Visit:
Recently, Meadow View’s 4th– 6th grade classes participated in a workshop led by Deborah Hopkins an award-winning author of more than 40 books. Her books include, Titanic, Voices from the Disaster, Sweet Clara and the Freedom Quilt and Apples to Oregon. Meadow View students enjoyed her stories, photographs and enthusiasm for historical fiction and nonfiction. A big thank you to Marilyn for coordinating this fabulous literacy opportunity for students!
8th Graders visit the State Capital:
The 8th grade class had a tour of Oregon’s capital building in Salem and even went to the very top and enjoyed the incredible views of the Willamette Valley. They visited the State House of Representatives and Mrs. Peck had the privilege of sitting in the governor’s chair. This field trip even included a walk through the Willamette University campus, a tour of the historic Thomas Kay Woolen Mill at the Willamette Heritage Center and learned about the history of the industrial revolution here in Oregon, about the workings of water turbines and the production of wool cloth.
Thank you to our amazing 8th grade staff Mrs. Peck, Mr. Wright & Mr. Stephens for organizing this field trip.
All the information gathered will be presented to state legislators to tell the story of what we want our state’s education system to look like.
