Hero Headlines: Learning Is Fun At Meadow Brook!

Be A Meadow Brook Hero!

Safe. Respectful. Responsible.

It’s been great to have some downtime with family and friends over the past week!

Breaks from school are all about mindfulness and balance.  In order to do our best learning we have to be our best selves, which often means relaxing and having fun.

At Meadow Brook we work hard to see that the students we serve have fun while they learn.

We take pride in our core philosophy that children should be comfortable and relaxed at school so they can focus on engaging in creative, collaborative, exploration.

In the week before our break we put together some programs and activities on the foundation of that core philosophy!

The Decimal Diner. Connecting math to eating out!

Snap Words In Disguise. Dressing up is fun!

A Day At The Beach. Reading is always fun at MBE!

Join us on Twitter @ThinkMBE for daily updates.

Here’s to another joyful Meadow Brook week!

Thank you for your patience and you partnership…in it together for the kids.

With gratitude,

 

Seth

Hero Headlines: Mouse PAW China 2019 “We Share”

Be A Meadow Brook Hero!

Safe. Respectful. Responsible.

We went to China last week.  Take a quick look with the lates Mouse PAW (Peek at the Week) video embedded below.

What a beautiful country!

We were treated with such incredible kindness and warmth.

We moved from city to city and school to school.

We took a whirlwind tour of the education system in and around the Shanghai region.

We met administrators, teachers, parents, students, and other stakeholders along the way.

We shared stories of our individual and collective journey and we listened as our hosts shared theirs with us.  It was wonderful.

We talked, we problem solved, we ate, we laughed, we played, we drew calligraphy characters, and we learned a few words to express how we were feeling…”thank you” and “beautiful” among others.

We engaged and our Chinese partners engaged with us.

I can’t describe the magnitude of the wonders we experience in words or in pictures.  You simply had to be there.  Actually, I highly recommend that you go.

Of all the thoughts and ideas rushing through my mind in this moment the one that stands out the most is that we are more alike than we are different.

I’m honored to represent Rochester Community Schools and Meadow Brook Elementary School as a part of this most recent China delegation, and I’m ready to extend the experience as we seek to continue enhancing our Global Awareness initiatives including our efforts to extend curriculum, programming and opportunities around diversity and inclusion.

Coming tougher with like-minded people from around the world is good for our community and great for our students, from the youngest to the oldest we serve. It’s good for our teachers, our parents, and our administrators.

It’s been really good for me:).

Here’s to another joyful Meadow Brook week!

Thank you for your patience and you partnership…in it together for the kids.

With gratitude,

2019 Spring Carnival Update!

Hello MBE Families,

Spring Carnival 2019 is almost here, but there is still a lot to do before the big day.

PTA’s Spring Carnival is the biggest fundraiser of the year for our school, and also a lot of fun! However, in order for Carnival to be super successful and a great time, we need a lot of help from you! Here are some great ways to get involved:

If you like to bake (or buy baked goods!) and are interested in donating treats for the bake sale at Carnival, follow this link to sign up: MBE PTA Spring Carnival Bake Sale Sign Up

If you REALLY like to bake (or REALLY like to buy baked goods!), consider donating a cake or two for our cake walk! (See attached flyer for more info)

If you’d rather donate time at the event, consider giving us an hour to help things run smoothly. Sign up here: MBE PTA Spring Carnival Volunteer Sign Up

By now, you have probably received communication from your classroom basket coordinator about how to donate to your classroom basket. In addition to donating to the baskets, we would love if you would join us to wrap baskets prior to Carnival! Sign up here to help – with enough people, it doesn’t take more than an hour or two. All wrapping materials are provided.

MBE PTA Spring Carnival Basket Wrapping Sign Up

And finally, a great way to make Carnival successful is simply to join in the fun! If you haven’t turned in your wristband order form yet, you can find it attached. Pre order wristbands are just $10 and are due by March 29th. After that, plan on buying your wristbands at the door for $15. *Preschool age siblings are FREE, as are parents/adults.

We’ve been working hard to make this night spectacular and can’t wait to see you there!
