I am a mother of three children who have all attended Meadows Elementary, this is our second year with the school. At first I was concerned when boundary changes moved our enrollment over, especially since I am in the military and I was going to be gone the first few months of their first year at the school. I have been nothing but impressed with the teachers and staff at Meadows! The principal, vice principal, school counselor and military support counselor are ALWAYS present, active, in the know and personable. They embraced our family, our unique challenge and our concerns with open and proactive arms from the moment we arrived. All of our children's teachers have been the same. Energetic, interactive and available. When you walk through the doors you always get a sense of community and you feel safe and one of the most friendly and kind people you will ever meet are right at the front desk! So grateful that this is our school during these precious years.
