Dear Green Meadow Families,
I think spring has finally arrived! Our students are enjoying outdoor recess. Let’s hope the nicer weather is here to stay!
I would like to extend a big THANK YOU to our student body, parents, and staff for making our school wide Reading Initiative and Literacy Fair a huge success. Collectively, our students read more than 100,000 minutes! It was great to see so many great projects on display at the fair. I was so impressed with the number of families and staff members that spent the evening with us to enjoy the projects. As part of this initiative, we also helped out a worthy cause. Our students raised over $2,000 for the Ronald McDonald House!
The Annual Green Meadow Carnival held in March was a great success. It was good to see so many students and their families enjoying themselves while participating in the many activities. The event raised much needed funds for our PTO. Please join me in thanking the many volunteers who made this event possible!
I am happy to announce that we recently received a grant from the Stewart’s Shops Holiday Match program. These funds will be used to purchase supplies for our character education program and our Maker Space classroom. On behalf of the entire Green Meadow staff, I would like to thank Stewart’s for their generosity.
All parents and community members are invited to attend our PTO meeting on April 9th at 7:00 p.m. in the cafeteria. Our Superintendent of Schools, Mr. Jeffrey Simons, and Assistant Superintendent for School Business Finance, Mr. Larry Edson, will present the proposed 2019-2020 School Budget. This is a great opportunity to ask questions and be informed.
Lastly, I hope all of our students and families have an enjoyable and relaxing vacation.
Daniel G. Garab
Principal of Green Meadow Elementary School
