Dear Meadow Heights Families:
This is an exciting time of year for our students, staff and families. Teachers are working diligently to cover curriculum areas. Students are getting excited about the summer which is fast approaching. Families are making summer plans and inquiring about summer camps. We are all looking forward to warmer weather and making the most of the last four weeks of school.
On May 12th, our very own Lead Custodian, Erik Haselbach was honored by receiving the Continuing Service Award at the PTA Council meeting. Meadow Heights is very lucky to have such a dedicated person on our team. Thank you to all the families that participated in making the staff appreciation week such a success. There was a week of treats, luncheon, flowers and cards. Thank you so much for expressing your appreciation for all the hard work our staff does each day. Our Spring Stampede was a success. Students met our goal and raised a total of, $24,579! Students will enjoy a shaved ice treat on May 31st as a reward for reaching our fundraising goal. Thanks to the organizers, Lisa Kemp and Linda Armstrong and the many other families that participated during this fun event. On May 26, our fourth grade students will learn about bicycle safety from the YBikes Program thanks to a Safe Routes to School district grant. Our Art in Action teacher, Laura Duncan has been working with all grades to create beautiful pieces for the art show. Please be sure to stop by the LGI during student led conferences and see the wonderful artwork created by our students. Thanks to the San Mateo County Fair, all elementary students in San Mateo County will receive one free ticket to the fair. Students were given one ticket to the fair on Friday, 5/19. Finally, the staff would like to invite families to our Appreciation Breakfast on June 2nd first thing in the morning. This is a way for the Meadow Heights staff to show their appreciation for all the hard work and countless hours our families contribute to our school.

As you can see, we have so much to accomplish and celebrate in a short amount of time. Please remember to assure your child gets enough sleep, eats a healthy breakfast, snack and lunch each day. As school starts getting closer to the end, our students get very excited and sometimes need reminders of our school expectations. Our students need to remember to be safe, respectful and responsible while in class, on the playground, at lunch and throughout all areas of our school campus. Please take the time to speak to your child about school expectations. Although they are getting excited, we need everyone to do their part so we can have a positive and successful last four weeks of the school year.
