PARENTS - please aim for 8:30 am drop off and building entry! Student learning starts at 8:40 am. End of day is 3:40 pm. If you need your student out before 3:40 pm, please call by noon so we can have your student ready and waiting in the Welcome Center for you. Last minute pick ups with no prior notification to the office creates disruption throughout the school.
For after school activities/athletics, please make arrangements ahead of time with your student about where you will meet them for pick up. Remember that the front office closes at 4pm, so there isn’t staff available to let you in to find your student.
The MAVERICK Fun Run - To give your child the best educational experience possible, we’re excited to raise funds to help develop our Makers Culture and equip our five creative design areas in our building. Students will begin brainstorming, interviewing, researching andpurchasing technology, equipment and supplies for the makerspaces used in the design and engineering processes that will be the core of our instructional program.
By now, you have heard and read about the MAVERICK Fun Run campaign. This is our primary and one major fund raiser here at Meadowlark School. Our school goal is to raise $75,000 and we know together we can pull this off! To help us power this event, we have partnered with Boosterthon. They are providing the resourses and staff to help our students and staff plan and execute. Of course, we will not reach our goal with out the help of family and friends. Moms and dads will need to help students register on FUNRUN.COM
and set up their unique site. Then, both kids and parents send that link out across the country! Family and friends anywhere in the world can support our school by giving pledges toward the number of laps your student will run on the day of the MAVERICK Fun Run October 12, 2017. Our 2-week MAVERICK Fun Run program kicks off with a Pep Rally on October 3!
Plus, leading up to the MAVERICK Fun Run, students will learn how to make a difference in their world through an unbelievable character theme, Castle Quest!9.12.2017
