Meadow View School
Our fall fundraiser was a huge success! We reached our goal and raised over $11,000 for Meadow View. We have several students eligible for additional prizes for being top sellers. Way to go! In addition, Mrs. Case and Mr. Bolden will be sprayed by students with over 10 cans of silly string! More to come… Fundraising merchandise will be delivered on Friday to students. Some of these orders contain frozen items. These items need be delivered right away or placed in your freezer. If your child has a very large order and you need to make other arrangements for pick up, please contact Lisa Foster at email@example.com or 541-968-4051. Thank you for supporting Meadow View.
U R Awesome Club
Meadow View 6th-8th grade students have started a U R Awesome Club. Their focus is to perform kind acts that will enhance our school environment. A special thanks to Kemy Joseph and the nonprofit U R Awesome organization in helping Meadow View students recognize the importance of happiness, health, empathy, and being Awe-inspiring.
Meadow View News, our closed circuit broadcasting show used for weekly announcements, has technical difficulties this year. The old televisions have been receiving fuzzy signals if any signal at all. Luckily we have support from our district technology department technician, Corey Fiala, Mr. Wright (8th grade teacher) and a talented tech savvy 8th grade student, Shane Donaghy. Meadow View News will soon broadcast digitally so teachers can use their projectors to watch the news.
Exit Ticket Success
Math is a top priority at Meadow View. Our students are learning new content and have a deeper understanding of math concepts. As many of you know we adopted a new math curriculum this year that is rigorous and aligned to the Common Core State standards. Each lesson is followed by an exit ticket. Exit tickets are short informal assessments meant to provide a quick glimpse of the day’s major learning for students and teachers. As part of this routine, students show accountability for each day’s learning and they provide helpful data for the teacher that becomes useful in future planning.
