3/26 Monday Message

3/26/18

Parents,

Last week our students had a great time with our “Penny Wars” fundraiser! As a school, we raised almost $500 for a family in need. I want to thank our student council for their hard working in getting this fundraiser organized.

This week I am grateful to all of you for making Teacher Appreciation week so wonderful. Our hard-working teachers at Meadow Brook are grateful for all the kindnesses being shown to them, thank you!

This last week before Spring Break is going to be great!

Other important information:

Safety— Utah has a very powerful safety resource called the SafeUT app. The SafeUT app allows students to report tips about school safety threats, drug/alcohol abuse, bullying, and anything else. With a single tap, students can also call or chat with 24-hour crisis counselors from The University of Utah Neuropsychiatric Institute (UNI).Our goal is to make every parent and educator aware of th app and have it downloaded on their phone. For more information about the app: https://healthcare.utah.edu/uni/programs/safe-ut-smartphone-app/.

PTA Message: Thanks to all those who brought in Box Tops for the second competition period. Ms. Glenn's 2nd grade class turned in the most. All together we earned $307.80 from all the unexpired Box Tops! Keep sending in Box Tops. They will still get picked up throughout the rest of the school year. If you would like more of the collection sheets, ask your teacher. There will soon be more collection sheets in the office for them to distribute.

It is great day to be a Mustang!, Miss Balli
