President’s Message

Fall 2016

Yes, summer has come to and end. But excitement abounds for another tremendous year at Meadowbrook Middle School!  Like many of you, we have said our farewells to elementary school and are looking forward to middle school and beyond.  So far I am really enjoying having all three of my children at one school again! 

Fall is also the time that PTSA volunteers shift into high gear, preparing for all the ways we help Meadowbrook be the best middle school around!  Thanks to all of you that have joined PTSA and donated to fund our programs.  Do you know that your donations pay for such things the honor roll certificates, pins, and trophies (including the end of year Student Recognition assembly)?  Also all the goodies that are handed out to those kids that are “Above the Crowd”.  And don’t forget about the 7th grade pool party, 8th grade promotion party, Mustang Plus, Staff Appreciation and the Career Fair!  It’s easy to take these programs for granted, but all of them (and many more) depend on your contributions. 

We’re still processing the paperwork, but hopefully we are on track to avoid having to do any further fundraising outside our Money for Mustangs donation drive.  If you didn’t donate at registration, it’s not too late!  Envelopes are in the front office, and are tax deductible (don’t forget about corporate matching too).  You even get a free basic yearbook with a $200 donation!

For those of you no longer at elementary school, don’t forget to change your AmazonSmile donation over to Meadowbrook.  It’s super easy to do – just go to
https://org.amazon.com/ and follow the steps.  Then just use the AmazonSmile link every time you shop (smile.amazon.com).  Easy peasey!

In 2016 – 2017, PTSA will continue to do great things for kids at Meadowbrook, including adding Chelsea’s Run as one of our programs.  Come to our first PTSA meeting on 8/31 at 5:30 PM (right before Back to School Night) and hear about everything else we’ve got planned for you!

Go Mustangs!

Four Important Things About PTSA

rrow PTSA is a powerful advocate for family involvement. Over three decades of research shows that the single most effective element in a student's success if the involvement of family members in the student's education.

 

rrow Members are the strength of our organization. Active and informed members make positive decisions that affect the welfare and education of youth locally, statewide and nationally. Everyone can be a member at any PTSA. The more members enrolled in PTSA, the more powerful our voice.

 

rrow You are important to us. It is important to the PTSA that you, as a parent, understand the benefits of PTSA. Attending PTSA meetings is an opportunity to keep families informed and the school community about PTSA priorities and the issues that affect our children.

 

rrow Our community is our greatest asset. As advocates for all children and youth, the PTSA is most effective when we value all members of our communities by seeing the uniqueness of each individual and working to build strong representation from all groups
