  • Jacob Lee Shows Patriotism

    On Wednesday, October 28th Jacob Lee was accompanying his father on the way to work and as they passed by the school, they noticed that the flags were not raised on the flagpole in the front of the school. Jacob Lee has been raising the flags on the mornings that he comes to school. He pointed out that the flags were not displayed, and he and his father drove back to the school. They pulled in to the carpool line and asked if they could raise the flags. How responsible and patriotic. We appreciate their help, and admire their sense of duty.

  • Kindness Movement Pays For School Lunches

    On Thursday, December 19th Ms. Glenna Wozniak and her class presented Mrs. Penny Martin, the cafeteria manger of Meadow School, with a check for $368. This check will pay for 160 school lunches. Wozniak has been leading school-wide Kindness Challenges for the past 2 years. She has worked with her students to present other students throughout the school with letters, small gifts, and kindness messages. Meadow students in grades PreK-8 have been presented with challenges, and they have shared their acts of kindness via social media, which then entered their names into drawings for prizes such as chromebooks. Last year, one of Wozniak’s students, Zachary Choate, brought up the idea of raising money to donate to the cafeteria. He did not like that students who do not have enough lunch money have to get vegetable trays, and he wanted to help them. Wozniak brought his dream to fruition this school year. Wozniak and her class sold shirts that say “Kindness Starts With Me” to raise money to pay for school lunches. Martin was working in her office when Wozniak and her class came in and surprised her with the check. Zachary was called down to the cafeteria office as well so that he could witness the event. Wozniak asked Zachary, “how does it make you feel that your dream came true?” Zachary covered his mouth with his hands. Wozniak praised Zachary, saying “I am proud of you for thinking about other people who don’t have lunch money. You thought about how they felt, and wanted to make them feel better. That makes me feel awesome that you felt that way, so thank you Zachary.” Martin reacted by saying, “I am extremely blown away. Just so happy and pleased with the kindness and gesture that you all thought about the other kids. We don’t like to see them go without. We don’t want to see that. It’s awesome that other kids want to help kids. That is the key.” As Wozniak said, “Yes! When you can hear out of a kid’s mouth what to do to make their world better,

  • November Kindness Challenge

    Kindness Challenge update from Ms. Wozniak: "Since the Challenge was started, I have received 22 pictures of kindness in the school and 80 people have completed the survey. THANK YOU for participating. You are helping to build so much confidence in my class. I am very encouraged by the results and I hope you can see positive changes in your classes too." The Kindness Challenge for November will be a t-shirt fundraiser. Each student will get an order form for a t-shirt. Every shirt purchased will also buy a school lunch. Every order form returned will be entered into the grand prize drawing for a ChromeBook in May. For families with siblings, each student should have an individual form in order to be entered into the drawing, but one payment can be made for all siblings. Parents can note on the order form the same check # or online code used to pay for all shirts. I just ask that teachers collect forms and any money and we will figure out the money details. Wouldn't it look great to see 100s of Kindness t-shirts in the school! Not to mention that every t-shirt will be a reminder of a hot lunch that was purchased for our students who need one. Order forms should be handed out to students in their homerooms on Monday, November 4th. Shirt orders can be turned in through November 18th. T-shirts will be returned to us before the Holiday break, so they could make a great present!
