Card Smart (Game and Card Club)
Meadow View Students can join the Card Smart Club and have a lot of positive peer interactions and fun! Card Games are excellent way to teach patience and good sportsmanship, motor and listening skills, concentration, and academics. They are also a way to improve family and peer relationships!
Hola Amigo is a lively & interactive Spanish enrichment program for children of all ages! Learning Spanish at an early age builds an invaluable foundation for children! Research has shown that children between birth and ten years of age have a better capacity of learning another language than adults. They have a natural ability, a "window of opportunity," to pick up new vocabulary without making a conscious effort. They are like sponges at this young stage of development, soaking in new information eagerly. Kids just love it because it's fun!
Meadow View Elementary School was awarded a grant through GE Health Care to start our Lego Robotics program! Lego Robotics inspires young minds through Science and technology! The student engage in a hands on program that allows them to program an autonomous robot to develop an innovative solution to real world problems!
The Yearbook Club has the primary goal of publishing a chronicle of the school year by producing Meadow View Elementary School's yearbook. The Yearbook Club is responsible for developing a yearbook theme, options for applying the theme, layout of the yearbook, photo content and composition, headlines and captions, page design using Adobe InDesign and YearTech, and a marketing plan. Involvement in the Yearbook Club offers the opportunity to gain life skills, assume responsibilities and have great fun all at the same time!
Meadow View student council is actively engaged in our community! Students share their ideas, interests, and concerns with their peers, staff, and community organization for the benefit of the school, it’s students and the community. They also help raise funds for school-wide activities, including social events, community projects and school reform!
Once a week our students have an opportunity to participate in the Brain Busters Trivia! We have a different Brain Buster for each grade level! It is the perfect opportunity to use their critical thinking skills outside the classroom!
"Pawsitively Positive" For Good Behavior!
We believe in acknowledging positive behavior at Meadow View Elementary School! A positive identity hinges on positive life experiences! The more success a child experiences, the better he/she feels about himself and his/her place in the world. Focusing on assets and strengths builds a sense of worth. At the beginning of the day, Mr. Schreiber announces students that have been nominated for a Pawsitively Positive award over the PA system to celebrate making good choices and being a positive influence for our school! Their name is then placed on a Wild Cat Paw and displayed on a bulletin board outside the office!
In the Spring our school hosts a Learning Celebration for our students and their parents! It is a time for every grade level to celebrate their learning and show off their academic success! Students share their expertise in several different subject areas! Parents have the opportunity to see firsthand the areas of study and the strengths of their child!
New this year, Meadow View School will be offering several different opportunities to engage in Maker Space Activities. It will be a time where our students can unleash their creativity while problem solving with their peers!
