We sere visited by some of our incredible Rochester High School mentors for some French language studies.

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,

MBE Candy for Charity is Here!

Too much candy after trick-or-treating?!

No worries!

Bring it to Meadow Brook starting tomorrow through November 8th and feed it to our MB Candy Monster!

Candies will be donated to various local organizations.

It’d also be a great help if chocolate candy was bagged separately from non-chocolate.

Thank you!

Hero Happenings Update: ITP Awareness Band-Aid Drive is Underway!

Safe. Respectful. Responsible.

Greetings, Meadow Brook Partners!

Thank you to all who have donated to our ITP Awareness Band-Aid Drive so far!

Here’s a reminder for the concept from the brother/sister Meadow Brook Heroes who came up with it:

The Hero House boxes are filling up but we want them overflowing…the more we collect the more we can distribute to kids in need:).

The boxes are lined up in the PTA area of our front hallway.

Do you remember what house your family belongs to?  Here they are:

  • Last Names A-C = Hero House GRIT
  • Last Names D-F = Hero House GRATITUDE
  • Last Names G-I = Hero House OPTIMISM
  • Last Names J-M = Hero House MINDFULNESS
  • Last Names N-Q = Hero House CREATIVITY
  • Last Names R-T = Hero House KINDNESS
  • Last Names U-Z = Hero House COURAGE

The winning Hero House will be the first to have their house name engraved our Hero Happenings trophy for all to admire!

FYI – Hero House Grit and Hero House Creativity are winning so far!

Here’s to another great week of Charitable Giving!

Thank you for being Meadow Brook Heroes!
