Introduction

Welcome Bulldogs! We are ready to fire up another great year here at Meadowbrook. There's lot's of excitement to see what our Bulldogs have in store for us this year as we continue our adventure into the 21'st Century learning experience. Go Bulldogs!
Some helpful info:

1) PowerSchool

-Parents will be mailed a letter containing a username and password to access PowerSchool. Please keep this, as it is very important. This site contains student marks and will be updated frequently as assignments are handed in. Please try to check PowerSchool once a week. The link for PowerSchool can be found in the Parent Portal. There is also a video tutorial that parents may wish to watch.

-Students will be given their own username and password for PowerSchool. They will be taught how to navigate the PowerSchool website during school time and will be expected to log in regularly.

2) Meadowbrook Website

-The school has a website and each teacher has a teacher page. Teacher pages contain important dates, assignments, links and handouts.

-Students will have their own password and will be expected to log in regularly. This becomes especially helpful when students are absent so they can log in and view missed work.

-Please log into this site frequently as it contains a wealth of information

3) Student Emails

-All students in RVS have a Google email account. Grade 5’s will be assigned their account during the year. They can use this account to communicate with peers, teachers and parents. Their account ends in @rvschools.ab.ca

4)    Snack - As there is no morning recess at Meadowbrook students will have a snack break part way through the morning.  With the exception of scheduled special events their snacks should be “healthy choices”.  As a general rule, sugar should not be one of the first 2 ingredients, this includes beverages.  Cookies, candy, desserts, pop, energy drinks, juice, etc. may be eaten at lunch time but not in the classroom during snack break.  Students are encouraged to bring a water bottle to class. Please remember that Meadowbrook is a “nut aware” environment. Students are discouraged from brining food items containing nuts.

5)  Agendas - Students are expected to write in their agendas daily and are expected to show it to you so that it can be signed or initialed each night.  Our expectation is that students copy everything from our homework/reminder board and then put a check mark beside anything they have completed.  This way you know what had been assigned.  Students who forget their agenda will still be expected to copy the information onto a page which will then be glued later.  Please do not allow your child to tear out pages.

***Important student agenda items will be posted frequently under the "CLASSROOM NEWS" tab on this page.

6)    Homework Students will be given class time to complete projects and assignments, therefore, you should not expect to see a lot of work brought home. Students are expected, however to complete regular review of material and study for tests and quizzes outside of school time.

7)    Assignments All major assignments will be posted on Meadowbrook School website under teacher pages and written in student’s agendas as assigned.  Students will be expected to hand in all assignments on the respective due dates. Please monitor your child’s progress on PowerSchool using the assigned passwords.

8)    Criminal Record Check for Volunteers-This year RVS is requiring all parent volunteers complete a Criminal Record Check prior to attending fieldtrips or volunteering in the classroom. These can several weeks to be cleared so if you plan on volunteering this year please see the attached form.

9)    Communicating with Teachers- Please feel free to contact your child’s teachers via email or phone. All email addresses can be found on the Meadowbrook website. We look forward to a positive, productive year together!

Of course, there will be some things that differ between teachers and we cannot outline all things here.  These last three topics – Agendas, Homework and Assignments, however, are part of the attached Student Responsibilities Contract that we are asking all students  and parents to sign. We look forward to a positive, productive year together!
