Here at Meadow Brook we had the honor and privilege to participate in this year’s Hero Day. We are not only just blessed to have the Dyal kids at our school, but also we have Mrs Jen Dyal that subs at our school frequently. She has made such a huge impact on students, teachers, and our school here at Meadow Brook. 

Hero day is celebrated on April 17th in memory of Jack Dyal, who was able to do organ donation and save many lives. Jack passed away when he was 9 years old. His younger brother Ethan Dyal, learned at this time that Jack was able to do organ donation to help save others lives. He would tell other’s that his brother was a hero because he was saving lives! Over the years the Dyal’s have done many different kinds of hero day donations to help be a hero and make a difference. They donated 126 blankets to Primary Children’s Hospital, celebrated the fire department with cookies and thank you cards, delivered 130 lunch’s, 125 cookies and drinks, and 48 donates to give to local lunch works, school staff, and essential workers during COVID, celebrated everyday heroes with a small gifts, donated 166 Easter baskets to Primary Children’s, “egged” heroes around home, chalked the block to those that needed some love, and much more!

This year we were able to celebrate every day heroes by writing a thank you letter to anyone that is a hero to us! Our WHOLE school was able to participate and say thank you! It was so amazing to see the variety of heroes in our students’ lives! But one of our heroes is Mrs Dyal. She truly cares and loves everyone. She gives her all, and it shows! She makes everyone feel welcomed and wanted. She is an Everyday Hero and a Mighty Mustang! WE LOVE YOU MRS DYAL! And a special thank you to Jack Dyal, for teaching us all what an everyday hero truly is.
