Preparing for the New School Year


As you can see from the photos below, our custodians have been busy stripping and waxing floors so the school building will be clean and shiny for opening day. Office staff have been ordering supplies, setting up schedules, and preparing class lists. We have also been attending trainings and working on transitioning to a new database system (Tyler) that has many great features. This month, the District will be launching a more updated website which will connect to all our social media including blogs and email blasts. 
This year, Green Meadow students will have several new specials along with Art, Music, Physical Education, and Library. K-3 students will participate in Foreign Language (Spanish), Computer Science, and Wellness classes. Welcome back letters, with information regarding classroom placements/homeroom teacher, will be mailed home the week of 8/13/18. Below are some important dates to keep in mind:
