    Our Super Scholar this week comes to school ready to learn and is always eager to help his friends out with a smile on his face. Congratulations to Max Davis in Mrs. Jacobsohn’s class. Way to go Max! 

    Parent Conferences are this Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday. Please make sure you have signed up for a time to meet with your teacher to discuss your child’s progress. If you still need to sign up, please contact your child’s teacher through email and she will let you know what times are available. Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday are also minimum days, so students will be dismissed at 12:40 on each of those days.

    On Thursday, Meadowlark will be participating in the Great California ShakeOut Drill. All school sites will be conducting earthquake drills with appropriate responses and coordinating communication with the district office as well as first responders. This is an important drill that ensures our schools are prepared in case of an earthquake or similar emergency. 

    This Saturday is Vasquez High School’s annual Fall Festival. Come join in the fun and check out the amazing booths and silent auction baskets. It will be at Vasquez High School quad area this Saturday, October 19th from noon to 5:00. Hope to see you there!

    Finally, I want to thank all of you for your patience as we dealt with circumstances that were unique and beyond our control. Decisions are always made thoughtfully with the safety of our staff and students as our top priority. We will continue to reflect on our policies to ensure that Meadowlark is a safe place to learn.

    Our Super Scholar this week comes from Mrs. Englers class. This scholar answers difficult questions and shares her knowledge with her classmates. Congratulations to Samantha Hamrick. 

    Another Super Scholar is an eager learner and always comes to school ready to learn. Congratulations to Elijah Christou in Mrs. Sutliff’s class.

    Tomorrow, Oct. 1st is Picture Day. Your child should have come home with a picture envelope for payment and choice of poses. Envelopes are available in the office, if you need another one.

    October has also been recognized nationally and by our district as Dyslexia Awareness Month. Dyslexia is a brain based learning disorder that can affect a child’s ability to read. It occurs in people of all backgrounds and intellectual levels. Awareness of the symptoms of dyslexia is important so early interventions can be implemented. Acton Library will have a special display available with books and information on Dyslexia. And a bulletin board in the front hallway of Meadowlark will also be on display with more information. 

    Our Raptor Visitor Management System also begins tomorrow. Please be prepared to show a picture ID, such as a Driver’s license, to the office if you plan on going on campus. All adults 18 years of age and older will be required to use this system. We appreciate your patience as we implement this system as another measure of keeping our kids safe at school. 

    Finally, Parent Conferences will be coming up in a couple of weeks Please check your child’s backpack for directions on signing up for conferences on Sign-Up Genius. The information is also on the Meadowlark website.  If you have any difficulties or have questions about signing up, please contact your child’s teacher.

    Congratulations to our new student council officers. President Rylie Wagner, Vice President Stella Salvas, Treasurer Cassia Demyan, Secretary Alexis Van Ornum, and Sergeant at Arms Drew Kendall. All of our candidates did an amazing job and we are proud of everyone who made the effort!

    Thank you to everyone who attended Back to School night last week. It’s always fun to see our parents get excited and learn about their child’s classroom.

    Wednesday, September 11th is Patriot Day. We encourage all students to wear red, white, and blue in honor of those who died and risked their lives during the 9/11 tragedy. Discussions of heroes, patriotism and community service will be a focus in the classroom, but we encourage you to talk to your child at home, about this historic day.

    I’d like to say a big thank you to all of you who are picking up your students in the valet line and blue line. You set such a great example by using the crosswalks and following Meadowlark’s simple rules of driving all the way forward in the valet line. Remember, if you need an orange name card for your car, they are available right outside the office. If you are walking to pick up your child, please walk to the front of the school where the blue line is.  Blue line students should not be picked up at the car valet area.

    Today we had our first outdoor Morning Buzz Assembly to introduce our staff and encourage school pride and spirit. Our  Behavior Assembly was also held this morning with a special visit from Mr. King, our Superintendent, who led our flag salute for our first assembly. Be sure to ask your child how their class can earn points in the MPR in order to earn extra lunch recess time. We have special play equipment that is used just for our Extended Recess times and who doesn’t love a little more play time? Also, ask your child what appropriate Voice Level means and about our 3 Be’s-Be Responsible, Be Respectful, and Be Safe. 

    PTO T-shirt sales begin this week through September. You will be getting an updated form with a new logo in the next few days.This is your opportunity to purchase a Meadowlark t-shirt and show your pride. Fridays are our Spirit Days and it’s the perfect time to wear your shirt or sweatshirt and show your school spirit. New order forms will be sent home as soon as we receive them and can be returned to the office when you are ready to order. There will also be a PTO meeting on Thursday at 8:35 in the MPR. We hope you can join us and be a part of this hard working group. 

    The Community Advisory Committee is a school associated group comprised of parents, educators and other interested community members. It’s purpose is to provide families of students with disabilities information on specific topics and encourage involvement in the development and review of the Local Plan, as well as disability awareness. Please go to www.avspecialed.com or stop by the Meadowlark office for more information. 

    If you haven’t returned your first day packet yet, please do so as soon as possible. It is important that we have updated information in case we need to contact you during the school day. 

    I also want to extend a big thank you to those parents who have been using the valet line. It works really well when we move all the way forward in the line and not stop in the middle. Using the orange valet cards is also very helpful so we can call your child’s name and he/she can be waiting for you in the appropriate spot. If you need a card, we have plenty in the office for you! I was also very pleased to see all of the parents who modeled for our students the use of the crosswalk. It’s important that we do all we can to keep our kids, and ourselves safe and follow all traffic rules.

    Class lists will be posted this afternoon at 5:00pm on the fence outside at the front of the school.  If you are unable to check the list this afternoon, we will have several staff members on campus on the first day, with class lists ready to assist you and your child in finding their classroom and teacher. Our first day of school is Wednesday and school begins at 8:30, but you can also drop your child off as early as 8:10 which is when supervision begins. For safety purposes, we ask that you not linger on campus, after dropping off your child. We know you will support us in helping to keep our kids safe. The first day of school is also a minimum day. All students will be dismissed at 12:40. TK will be dismissed at 12:55. Please be patient in our valet lines and pick up area. It usually takes a week or two for everyone to get into the rhythm of our regular pickup routines. The next few days are predicted to be very warm. Please keep in mind our dress code and make sure your child is wearing closed toed shoes and appropriate attire for school.  Also, please check your child’s backpack for the First Day Packet. There are several important items for you to complete, sign and return as soon as possible. These include the Emergency Card and Disaster Release Forms, as well as a few other forms. Use the check off list to help you keep track of what needs to be returned and what you can keep at home. Finally, I want to welcome all of our Meadowlark families back to school. It’s going to be an amazing year!

    This is a special message to let you know that in addition to the report card and other end of year items, your child will be bringing home their STAR report. This report highlights the range in which your students will be able to check out books at the library and will make it easier for them to participate in the District’s Summer Reading Challenge. Remember, you can come to the District Office every day from 8:00-12:00 to take an AR test on your book. Books can be from home or checked out from the library.

    We also want to remind you that tomorrow is a minimum day and all students will be dismissed at 12:40. Thank you for listening and have a wonderful summer!
