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!

First Week Assembly

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!

Sixth Grade Teacher - Superstar Mrs. James

My name is Jennifer James, and I am thrilled to be teaching sixth grade at Meadow Brook this year. I truly believe that I have the best job in the world, and I love learning and making memories with my students.

I have six children (four of whom have now successfully completed sixth grade), and I enjoyed being able to take time off from my teaching career to stay home with them. After my lengthy “mommy retirement” I taught second grade for two years before moving up to sixth grade last year.

Hi! I’m Gracie Amundson, but my students usually call me Mrs. A. I’m not from Utah, but home is not too far away! I’m from a little town in Colorado called Colorado Springs. Just like most of you, I grew up with a view of the mountains and I love being outdoors. I love hiking, playing tennis, and occasionally running. I smile a lot, because life is awesome! I just got married last March to a studly man named Brady, whom I met at a school assembly the year before.
