    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!

Congratulations to all of these students, and thank you to all of the parents who supported this effort!

    The next few weeks are going to be very busy for Meadowlark. Tuesday and Wednesday we have our ASMO Concerts. If you are interested in dinner, that will begin at 5:30 and tickets are $5 at the door. Tickets for the show are sold separately for $3 and those tickets will also be available at the door. Please see the flyer for the night your child’s class will be performing. Seats fill up quickly, so arrive early. The students have been working hard for their performance, and they look forward to showing off what they’ve learned.

    On Thursday, the classes that earned 85% of the required MPR points will get extended recess during their lunch time. We have bubbles, giant balls, and other fun activities that the students get to use only during extended lunch.  

    May continues to be Attendance Awareness month. Remember that students who are at school on time and every day, will participate in an ice cream social sponsored by our Superintendent Mr. King.

    Our Super Scholar this week is a student who works with Mrs. Newton. This student works hard to learn something new things every day. Congratulations to Angela Lomeli.

    In TK, Mrs. Wadsworth would like to recognize Victoria H., Juliet B., and Santino S. as her Dojo winners. Congratulations to you all!

    Don’t forget to turn in your ASMO nomination forms. ASMO is a wonderful program that supports music in our schools. Get involved and see how fun it is to be a part of this wonderful program!

    We are continuing State Testing this week and the kids are doing such a great job of focusing and staying on task. We appreciate those of you who make sure to send your 3rd and 4th graders every day and on time during this important testing window.

    Speaking of attendance, don’t forget that this month is Attendance Awareness Month. All students that attend school on time, every day will participate in an ice cream social given by our Superintendent, Mr. King. What a yummy way to celebrate perfect attendance and reinforce the importance of education! 

    This week is also Staff Appreciation week. Thank you to our ELAC parents and PTO who donate food, drinks, gifts, but mostly, their time, to honor our staff members. I want to recognize the hard work and dedication  that everyone at Meadowlark has for the students. Our Office Staff, Yard Supervisors, Instructional Aides, Cafeteria Staff, Maintenance and Custodial Staff, Special Services staff, and of course, our teachers, deserve a big thank you for all they do for our kids. Thank you!

    If you would like to relax and enjoy some fine music and entertainment, go to the Heard Concert this Thursday and/or Friday night at Vasquez High School. It’s guaranteed to be a fun, family event!
