          The annual Green Meadow Meet and Greet is such an exciting beginning to each school year.  Everyone arrives, eager to see their new classrooms, connect with classmates, meet their new teachers, and share their summer experiences.   As much as we enjoy seeing our new and returning students, we are also delighted to see our Green Meadow graduates as they visit our school with their siblings.  It is amazing to see how they have grown and flourished.

Each summer our community has grown with the addition of new students, families, and staff members.   We are delighted to welcome the following staff members to our Green Meadow community:

             This year our arrival and dismissal times have remained the same as last year.  The school day begins at 8:30 and concludes at 2:50.   Weather permitting, students be able to participate in a supervised outdoor arrival beginning at 8:15. Early dismissal times however have changed.  We will now have a consistent dismissal time of 11:45 for all early release days.

            Please save the date….. The Green Meadow Back to School/ Curriculum Night will be held on Wednesday, September 17 at 6:30 PM.  During this evening, parents will visit their children’s classrooms to learn about curriculum expectations and classroom routines from each teacher. This parent only evening provides an opportunity to ask questions, gain understanding, and learn ways to support students as they master grade level curriculum. We hope you are able to join us for this informative program.

We are looking forward to a wonderful school year!
