Principal's Message

Daina Lujan


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:


Crab Feed

The Crab Feed is scheduled for March 24 from 5pm-9pm at the Shea Center at Taylor. Tickets are on sale now at www.meadowspto/crabfeed. For those interested, child care is available by reservation and there is a pre-event Happy Hour from 4pm-6pm at the Checuti Room near the Millbrae Library. More information is available at www.meadowspto/crabfeed. Get your tickets now before the event sells out. This is one event not to miss. With the good food and great company, a good time is had by all for sure!


Lemons for Crab Feed

Crab Feed planning is underway and we need fresh lemons for our famous Meadows Lemonade! One of the unique offerings at our event is the homemade lemonade, complimentary at the dinner and auction. Guests rave about it every year! If you have a lemon tree in your yard, please consider donating your harvest to the event. Lemons can be dropped off in the Crab Feed cardboard box outside of the office.


Report Cards

The end of the second trimester will be coming up in a little less than a month on March 9. Report cards will go home at Spring Conferences.  Spring Conferences will take place from March 12 through March 20. Teachers will use Spring Conferences to speak to student progress as noted on report cards. Conferences are an excellent opportunity to chat through ways to ensure students finish the year academically, socially and emotionally ready for the next school year. If you have not scheduled your child’s Spring Conference, please contact your child’s teacher.


March 12 through 20 Early Release

Families, please note that children will be released at 1:15pm March 12-20. Children will be released early to provide teachers time to meet with families for Spring Conferences. Please make arrangements to pick children up on time.  


Volunteers Needed

  • Lunch Supervision Volunteers: We are in need of lunch volunteers to assist with supervision from 11:45-1:05, particularly on Wednesdays and Thursdays.


LEAP and Science from Scientists

Thanks to the generous support of Meadows Families with the Spell-a-Thon, beginning this month, all children at Meadows will be learn art from an artist in residence with LEAP. Students in TK through 1st grade will participate in visual arts, students in grades 2 and 3 will participate in creative movement and students in grades 4 and 5 will participate in Readers Theater and Drama! In addition to art, thanks to parent support for the Spell-a-Thon, our fourth and fifth grade students will participate in hands on science every other week as part of the Science from Scientists program. With this program, two scientists will visit classrooms every other week and teach hands on science that aligns with the district curriculum and classroom teacher led science!

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.

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.

Be safe

Be kind

Be the best you can be
