Principal's Message


Daina Lujan

Welcome!

Welcome to Meadows School!  We are deeply committed to working together for the benefit of all children. This commitment and our collaborative culture are the basis of both the Gold Ribbon and J. Russell Kent Award we earned during the 2015-16 school year. Below are highlights about events, activities and ways to get involved:

 

Turkey Trot and Fall Fest

Save the Date! Meadows Turkey Trot and Fall Fest will both take place on Sunday, November 5. 

 

The Turkey Trot will be held from 9-11 am. Cost is $10/participant and will include a one mile fun run, pancake breakfast sponsored by Millbrae Lions Club and One Martial Arts, and a drawstring bag featuring student artwork. Registration forms will be sent home tomorrow.

 

The Fall Fest will follow from 11am - 2pm. This is a free event for our Meadows families hosted by the Meadows PTO. We hope you'll join us for some fall fun, including hot dogs and cotton candy, a big slide, games and prizes, glitter tattoos, a photo booth, and more!

 

E-Waste & Kid Clothing Drive

Please bring old home and office electronics, as well as gently used and new kids' clothing to the Meadows parking lot on Saturday, October 21 from 10am - 2pm. There is no fee involved. Electronics will be collected by ZARC recycling and clothing donated to Mattress Firm Foster Kids.

 

Meadows Dads' Club

The Meadows PTO is looking for dads that want to support and make a difference at Meadows Elementary. This is a unique opportunity for you to meet other dads from school. There will not be any formal meetings but we will have projects and events that you can sign up for. If you are interested in helping and supporting your child's school please contact kim@onemartialarts.com to learn more! 

 

Taco Tuesdays

Come enjoy dinner, relax, and connect with other families at our Taco Tuesdays! Taco Tuesdays are organized by grade levels, but siblings from other grades are welcome. Dinner for a family of five is $20. $5 for additional persons. All Taco Tuesdays are held from 6pm-8pm in the Multi-Use Room.

10/17 - 4th Grade

10/24 - 2nd Grade

11/14 - 3rd Grade

 

Updated Staff Emails

Millbrae School District is in the process of an email migration and our new email addresses are set up as first initial last name@millbraesd.org (for example dlujan@millbraesd.org). At this moment we are straddling two email accounts, but most staff are primarily checking their millbraesd.org accounts. Please update your address books/contacts lists. If you sent an email and are not getting a timely response, please try forwarding the message to the millbraesd.org. Mail forwarding from the mesd.k12.ca.us accounts to the millbraesd.org accounts will begin October 9. We appreciate your patience while we get everyone trained on how to access their new email accounts. The staff directory is available online at http://www.millbraeschooldistrict.org.schools.bz/userfiles/239/my%20files/meadows.staffcontactsheet.2017.2018_web.pdf?id=2625.

 

Spell-a-Thon

This year, Spell-a-Thon will be held on October 19 and 20. Please be on the look out for  a communication from your child’s classroom teacher about the Spell-a-Thon. The communication from the teacher will include a list of words that children should study for the Spell-a-Thon. The funds raised will help fund Science from Scientists, a program designed to bring Scientists into the classroom to teach and inspire children!

Yearbook

Lunch/Nutrition Services

Please be aware that per the Millbrae School District Board Policy, when children have a negative breakfast/lunch account balance of $15.00 or more, children may not receive hot lunch from the cafeteria. Children are provided an alternative meal inclusive of milk, a piece of fruit, carrot sticks and a cheese stick, but they do not receive the warm entrée. To keep your child’s account positive, you may send your child with an envelope with money labeled with your child's name and your child's teacher's name or you may pay online at https://www.myschoolbucks.com/ver2/login/getmain?requestAction=home. To pay online, you will need your child's student ID number. If you do not have your child's student ID number, please call the school office at 650-583-7590 x 610. If you think you may qualify for the free and reduced lunch program, the application is available online at http://www.millbraeschooldistrict.org.schools.bz/userfiles/254/my%20files/2017.2018%20application%20eng..pdf?id=2597.

 

Dress Code

Clothing should be comfortable for physical activity with appropriate coverage of body parts. Shoes should be closed toe and also appropriate for running and playing. Clothing and jewelry should not be distracting. Large jewelry, particularly earrings, should not be worn due to safety concerns.

 

Volunteer Clearance

For the safety of all our children and per district policy, volunteers and field trip drivers are asked to complete a volunteer application form, submit a copy of their current driver’s license, complete a TB form and be fingerprinted. To begin the process, please stop by the school office for a volunteer form, and submit a copy of your driver’s license and completed TB form to the school office.

 

2017-2018 Meadows School Handbook 

The 2017-2018 School Handbook is available here. The handbook provides parents with helpful information about school practices and policies, such as helpful guidelines for parents about when to keep an ill child at home and the school dress code. 

 

School Rules

The students of the school are expected to follow the three school rules:

Be safe

Be kind

Be the best you can be

 

Ongoing Fundraisers

There are three easy ways to support fundraising efforts at Meadows on an ongoing basis:

  • Smile.amazon.com: Ever shop at amazon.com? Interested in the same shopping experience AND raising money for Meadows? Go to smile.amazon.com and select Meadows Elementary PTO in Millbrae, CA and Amazon will donate a percentage of whatever you spend back to the school. All the same items and pricing is available. Smile is the charitable side of Amazon.
  • Shoparoo: Shoparoo is school fundraising made easy: the free app turns pictures of your everyday shopping receipts into cash donations and sweepstakes entries for our school! All you have to do is shop as you normally do, snap pictures of your receipts with the app, and voila Just shop, snap, earn!
  • Box Tops: If you purchase items with box tops on them, clip them and send them with your child to school. With the funds raised through Box Tops, we are able to purchase supplies for our students.

 

Thank you for all you do to make Meadows a place where students learn, grow and thrive!
