Hi Meadow View Families!
We have scheduled a second opportunity for you to pick-up your child’s locker belongings curbside. Come by Thursday, April 30th from 4:00-5:30pm. See you soon!
Dear Meadow View 6-8 Families,
We are ready to start the first wave of student belongings pick-up here at Meadow View! We are doing this in stages, beginning with grades 6-8 on Tuesday, April 28th from 10-2pm. To pick up your middle schoolers’ items, please drive up to the front parking lot sidewalk between 10am and 2pm on Tuesday, 4/28. An MV staff member will meet you at your car window to get your student’s name and grade level, grab their bag from the alphabetized table and deliver your child’s belongings to you curbside. We ask that you remain in your vehicle throughout this process.
We understand that many of you have children in different grade levels at MV. Please know that due to the sheer number of students we are collecting items for, we are not able to accommodate picking up items for a younger K-5 sibling at this time. Thank you for your understanding and patience. Stay tuned for an update on K-5 belongings pick-up coming soon!
If you can’t make it to MV on Tuesday, please call the office at 541-607-9700 and set up an appointment to pick up your student’s belongings.
See you Tuesday MV 6-8 families!
Erika and Carmen
Hey MV families! Earth Day is this Wednesday and since we can’t be together to celebrate we thought we’d team up with National Geographic and create a neighborhood safari!
Here’s how it works:
Create a scene starring your children’s favorite animals. Let their imaginations go wild (sorry—we had to say it) with sidewalk chalk sketches, original drawings or artwork, or these animal coloring pages. You can inspire younger children with these fun critter facts, or show older kids Nat Geo’s encyclopedia of animals. All of our K-8 students can join in on the fun.
Then show off your family’s creation to the community on Earth Day THIS WEDNESDAY: hung from your house’s window, attached to your apartment balcony, taped to the roadside mailbox … wherever your family lives. Invite other families to join by hanging their art so everyone can take their own safaris—while practicing social distancing, of course—and spot different animals all over the neighborhood. The goal is that as you walk with your children around your Meadow View neighborhood, they’ll see how amazing the world is—AND if you’re walking around the Meadow View building, you MIGHT spot a few animals in the school windows, too!
Here is the link to Nat. Geo’s Neighborhood Safari site.
There’s lots of other ways to celebrate Earth Day, too! Think about starting a recycling routine or compost bin at your home. Check out this website for more Earth Day ideas!
Have a great Earth Day, MV, and enjoy your safari!
Hey Meadow View! Let’s kick off our first week of distance learning with our first ever Meadow View VIRTUAL SPIRIT WEEK! We wanted to do something next week to help encourage that sense of community and connection that we all love about Meadow View. Each day next week, we will have a fun, themed way to for you to get active and show your school spirit virtually with your teachers and peers. Snap a picture each day and show us what you’re up to–send it to your teacher, post it in the comments on our MV Facebook page or email it to us! We’ll feature a collage of MV pictures at the end of next week.
We have missed you all so much and can’t wait to get back together again tomorrow. We know this is a very confusing time for all of us and we are all experiencing this new learning environment together. Please be patient with us as we begin this journey with all of you. We are are so dedicated to making sure that we continue learning together in this new virtual world.
Office hours will be on Tuesdays from 8-10 am and Thursdays from 12:30 to 2:30 pm. Please feel free to email us, call us or text us during that time and we will do our best to answer any and all questions or concerns that you may be having.
There is a new Bethel Parent and Student Technology Help Desk and it is now live on our website. It can be found on the Supplemental Resources page – here’s the link. It is our hope that parents or students who are struggling with the use of technology will contact our Technology Services department through either the phone number – 541-607-1450 – or submit a Help Desk ticket – https://studenthelp.bethel.k12.or.us.
This support is offered in both English and Spanish.
We are looking forward to connecting with our families!
