Bulldog Bulletin – 2024/04/28

Posted on

Thank you, Bulldogs!! We’d like to give a big round of applause to our amazing students who recently participated in our Helping Hands Earth Day Clean-up event! Their dedication to making our neighborhood a cleaner and healthier place is truly commendable. Not only did they demonstrate responsibility and citizenship, but they also showed great teamwork and initiative. We are incredibly proud of their efforts and the positive impact it has. Their hard work and commitment make a real difference in our community! 


PBIS – You've been spotted! 

We held another assembly this past week to have a bit of fun with homeroom challenges and provide a refresher for students on being safe, respectful, and responsible. MBM staff will be on the lookout - spotting students who demonstrate these Bulldog characteristics and showing our thanks by awarding PBIS tickets. Students receive a PBIS pencil in exchange and are entered into a draw for a free Healthy Hunger lunch.    

Building Future Ready Students – RCMP Career Exploration 

Do you know a young person interested in a career in law enforcement? The RCMP is hosting a recruitment day – a fully interactive experience at the Calgary Olympic Oval. All RCMP units will have displays and demonstration stations for the public to interact with. A great opportunity to learn for those who are just curious or those that want to plan ahead. Link here.

Balancing Airdrie Students Spaces Decision   
Rocky View Schools recently shared the Board of Trustees’ Balancing Airdrie Student Spaces decision to improve utilization through grade configuration changes and some attendance area changes effective September 2025. For Meadowbrook School, this means grades would move from 6 – 8 for English and Christian programs to Grades 7 – 9 for English and Christian programs starting the 2025/26 school year. More information is available on RVSEngage. 

We understand you may have questions about these changes. Planning for these transitions and communication with families will take place throughout the upcoming school year. While school staff do not have any further details at this time, we will share new information as plans are confirmed. Thank you for your understanding.
