After learning about heat transfer, seasonal change, and the long-term effects of decreasing temperature on plant and animal life, sixth graders at Meadow Brook Elementary were ready to put their knowledge to good use. They boarded space ships at the Christa McAuliffe Space Center and were soon on their way to save the Enooks, an alien race on a distant planet. It took a lot of teamwork, quick thinking, and precise communication, but the students were finally able to complete their mission and return to earth. “This was one of my favorite field trips ever!
We are so proud of everything that our 3rd graders are doing! Not only are they passing off math facts like crazy, but they are showing great behavior in class and being amazing students in all that they do. We'd like to especially recognize the following students for excelling in so many things in November & December-
Here are our awesome 2nd grade students of the month for December. We appreciate all of their hard work and good choices. Congratulations to Maris, Mairee, Connor, Haley, Samantha, Camryn, Nely, Leo, Gabby, Lucas, Dayanara, and Paislee.
We also want to congratulate all those who earned another fast facts belt buckle this month. Way to go 2nd graders!!
For January, Meadow Brook students will be learning about Habit 5: Seek First to Understand, Then to Be Understood. This habit teaches students to listen to others without interrupting or blurting out. They try to understand the other person's point of view, even if it is different from their own. If you would like to encourage Habit 5 in the home, you can play a game of Simon Says or Telephone and talk about the importance of listening. You can also have your student look around the home or neighborhood and find someone they can help.
Second graders in Mrs. Bird's class put on their working gloves today and happily helped Mr. Johnson clean up the cafeteria after lunch. It was a big and messy job, but with 26 pairs of helping hands, the work went fast! Mr. Johnson and Mr. Grotegut do so much for our school, we wanted to pay them back so we decided to do something nice for them. Merry Christmas Mr. Johnson!!
Congratulations to our November Students of the Month! These students were caught making excellent choices in November. Their names are (in no particular order): Dawson, Taylin, Mylee, Kyde, Claire, Eliza, Savannah, Cayle, Parker, Shaylee, Christian, and Deysi. Also, congrats to all of those 2nd graders who earned a belt buckle this month. We had bronze, silver, and even three gold buckles earned. We loved having a visit from Cowboy Pitcher who came to celebrate with us!
For December, Meadow Brook students finished out Red Ribbon Week by learning about Habit 4: Think Win-Win. They watched an inspiring Olympic video that represented a Win-Win attitude. The students learned that to think win-win means to make the best of any situation. We do our best to reach our potential and we help others to reach their potential, too. A win-win person doesn’t just think about what they want, they think of other’s needs too. They think of ways to make everyone happy. If you would like to encourage Habit 4 in the home, you can have a family game night and focus on the
