Administration Monthly Message

Hello Bulldog parents!

Spring is here! Or perhaps it seems this is wishful thinking…

I encourage you to ask your son/daughter about “Corndog Day” at Meadowbrook. I hope that they communicate a message of positivity to you. Earlier in the year, I spent time in each classroom and asked each class some questions about their school experience. We talked about ways we could work together to further support each other in the school. I showed them a video by Kid President entitled, “Twenty Things we should Say More Often”. The link to the video is After our recognition assembly, we shared Corndogs that were funded by School Council. Thank you to School Council, to Mrs. Fields and Mr. Collins and students who served the corndogs!

Congratulations to our Battle of the Books competitors and to Miss Legh for a third-place finish!! Well done!

Our Trustees swung by on February 28 to tour the school and to learn about some of the great things going on in Meadowbrook. We had student leaders tour the Trustees around. Trustees heard about Willy Wonka, Battle of the Books, ELW, and the various ways and tools that we use to work with our students with Social/Emotional supports. Trustees also observed a Levelled Literacy Intervention class, a Blanket Activity (Indigenous Study), a Science class working on body system models, and they heard about and observed the student-led Bulldog Hockey League (BHL) in      action!  With exception of the Social/Emotional support information, all of these showcase          elements were facilitated by students and they did a fabulous job of sharing their excitement of learning at each of these stations.

Monday, March 12 is a Professional Learning day and no school for students. Our staff will be learning about supports for students with complex needs in the morning. In the afternoon, teachers will be participating in a workshop with Tom Schimmer, who is an author and expert in assessment.

Our next School Council meeting is March 14 at 7:00. Everyone is welcome!

On March 15, students will spend about a half hour with their ELW class. At this time, they will learn more about their course and this will be an opportunity to ask questions to their teacher. They will bring a parent letter home that provides you with more information on what your child will learn throughout the week, what your child may need to bring, and consent for travel forms, if applicable. If you have any questions about ELW, please give me a call.

Term 2 is nearly over and Term 3 begins on March 26. Report cards are expected to go home on March 29, the day before Spring Break!

Until next time,

Ms. McDuffe
