values are such an important part of our school community. From the time students enter
the Green Meadow Community, we
emphasize the importance of being Kind, Safe, and Learners. This focus is supported by our Responsive
Classroom school wide Social Curriculum.
This year we introduced these Core values to our students through grade level
meetings. As a grade level we discussed
how to be kind in our words and actions, how to make everyone feel safe and
welcome, and how to make sure everyone can learn in our school. During these meetings students also had an
opportunity to welcome new students and meet the adults who will be working
with them throughout the year. It was a
wonderful way for us to come together and begin the development of a grade
level community. Throughout the school
year, we will continue these opportunities to meet as grade levels in addition
to the daily classroom morning meetings for important discussions.
were so fortunate that the weather cleared last Friday, allowing us to hold our
annual PTO back to School picnic.
Families enjoyed the opportunity to get to know each other while sharing
a picnic dinner. Students were so excited to spend the evening playing on the
playground with their friends. It was
wonderful to see so many families join us for this special event. Special thanks to the PTO for planning and
organizing this event.
look forward to seeing you this evening at Curriculum Night!
News from Mrs.
Dear Green Meadow Families,
It is hard to believe that we are approaching the 10th day
of school. We have spent a lot of time
in first grade getting to know everyone and establishing our classroom rules
and expectations. It certainly has been
fun hearing about all the fun activities that everyone did over the
summer. We will be implementing Writers
Workshop as well as our phonics Fundations program within the next few days.
The majority of the activities we have worked on has been review, simple
assessments and get to know you activities. We are looking forward to a fun
year ahead. Enjoy the wonderful weather
we are having and see you at curriculum night.
Take Care! Denise
News from Sra.
Soler’s Third Grade Class:
We are super excited to be in third grade and off to a great
start! We are proud to show our school’s
core values: Being Kind, Being Safe and Being Learners.
We are looking forward to learn all about the weather and
the changes coming up once Fall gets here.
Only nine more days!
Reading is everywhere! We are building our stamina

It is FUN!!
School Curriculum Night is an important opportunity for teachers to share
information with parents. Therefore this
is a parent only evening.
A family Open House is held in the spring.
Supervision begins each day at 8:15.
Please do not drop students
off before this time. The Excel
program offers an early arrival if you need to bring your child to school
During the next few weeks we will begin
practicing some of our important safety procedures. In a positive and reassuring way, students
will learn the procedures for fire drills and school lockdowns. You may want to
continue the conversations with your child at home.
