This school year Meadow Brook students will participate in a school wide positive behavior program. Each month the school will focus on a Habit from the 7 Habits of Happy Kids. Last week students had their first lesson. It focused on Habit 1: Be Proactive. The students learned that a proactive person is someone who is responsible and takes initiative. They do what is right, even when no one is looking.
Many students have been recognized with "Brag Notes" for their marvelous behavior. Yesterday we had our first Principal's Mustang Club drawing. Our lucky winners received a pencil, prize, and a dollar. We will continue to look for and recognize more Mighty Mustangs throughout the year!
The Meadow Brook Elementary 6th grade engineers were hard at work this week designing and building hot air balloons. On the first day, we picked our teams and decided what colors of tissue paper to use and what shape to make the hot air balloons. Then teams began gluing their balloons together. While gluing, some tissue paper ripped and had to be fixed.
On day two, we finished gluing our balloons together and tested our balloons for holes and rips.
This is a little late, but Meadow Brook Elementary is open! On Monday August 22, Dean Rowley from the Nebo School Board helped Meadow Brook Students cut the ribbon, officially opening our school doors! We were excited to have students and their families in attendance, as well as teachers and staff at Meadow Brook, Rick Nielsen our superintendent, members of the community, and members of the school board. Thank you everyone who worked so hard to get our school up and running! Go Mustangs!
On Friday we had an assembly for Meadow Brook students to get to know the teachers and staff. We played "2 Truths and 1 Lie." Two students from each class listened to three statements and had to decide which statement was the lie about their teacher. If the students got it correct, they earned a point for the student body. If they got it wrong, the teachers received a point. It was a close game, but the teachers made it tricky and came out on top!
