Dear Parents and Guardians,
The beginning of the school year is filled with excitement, anticipation, and nervousness. At Meadow Glens, we want our students, families, and staff to have a positive experience the entire year. As long as children enter Meadow Glens, the school can never be in a state of what is; it must always be in a state of becoming. Children change, teachers change, instruction changes, scholarship into curriculum evolves. As the changes of the Common Core State Standards take center stage, our school curriculum and programs must evolve too. One of the biggest challenges we face in our schools today is preparing our students to be successful in a global world. Our focus needs to continue to support students’ academic and social emotional growth. With your help, we can create a nurturing community in which students can learn to be self-directed learners, collaborative workers, complex thinkers, quality producers and community contributors. Our Meadow Glens motto is “SOAR with Pride”. Meadow Glens staff developed S.O.A.R. (Safety, Ownership, Acceptance, Respectful Behavior) to guide positive student behavior in work and play. We recognize that our goals are achievable only through a strong partnership with the family. We value your interest and support at Meadow Glens.
If at any time you have a question or concern, please do not hesitate to call your child’s classroom teacher, the office, or me. Again, if you have any questions or comments, please contact our school office at 630 420-3200, and we will be happy to assist you.
