Safe. Respectful. Responsible.
Greeting, Meadow Brook Partners!
Last summer our “Be A Meadow Brook Hero” culture-building initiative was born out of an idea generated at a PD planning meeting by Meadow Brook Staff.
Last fall the Meadow Brook PTA rallied around our “Be A Meadow Brook Hero” culture-building initiative by redesigning our logo and making sure that every staff member and student had a “Be A Hero!” t-shirt.
Last winter our “Chain of Hero’s” core values celebration tool came into being on the foundation of a student’s idea and design.
Last spring a Meadow Brook parent shared an article with me about how positively impactful the concept of “houses,” or small, collaborative culture-buidling/shared learning groups are for students in school communities.
That action inspired several months of reflective development and has now ended this fall in the introduction of our brand new Meadow Brook “Hero Houses!”
Next week all Meadow Brook students will be assigned to one of six “Hero Houses” though which they will engage in what we are referring to “competitive charitable giving.”
The seven MBE “Hero Houses” are:
- Hero House Kindness
- Hero House Gratitude
- Hero House Optimism
- Hero House Grit
- Hero House Mindfulness
- Hero House Courage
- Hero House Creativity
We are thrilled to announce, in collaboration with our incredible PTA, that the first “House Happening” charitable giving campaign was thought of and developed by one of our first grade students and his family, and it’s all about today’s national ITP awareness day – and helping kids feel safe, valued, and respected!
