Essence of ME
Our Essence of Me group is designed specifically for African-American and Hispanic girls in 2nd - 5th grade. This group will meet after school twice a month. This program will focus on a multitude of concepts. The principal idea is to influence our girls of color to have high self-esteem and self-confidence that can be seen in the classroom and beyond. Another focus of this group is to strengthen ones' own self-development as well as build a support system of strong relationships with one another. Our group will build relationships through various activities including reading and writing in a way that will allow the girls to have success in their academic abilities. If you would like your child to participate in this group, space is limited to 20-25 students and will be taken on a first-come first-serve basis. Please fill out and return the permission slip as soon as possible. An additional note will be sent home to notify you of your child's participation and of the scheduled dates for the year.
Meeting Dates: TBD
Dear 3rd, 4th, and 5th Graders,
Wouldn't it be nice to get a kick start on your homework before getting home from school? Mr. Heit and Mrs. Maez are starting an afterschool opportunity for 3-5th graders. We'll meet Tuesday and Thursday after school from 3:15 to 4:15, dates to be determined. During this period, we will provide a quiet environment, technology to use if needed, and teacher support for homework questions. Our goal for the year is to help kids establish a homework routine where they feel supported in their independent practice. If you plan on joining us at any time, please fill out the parent permission slip. We look forward to seeing you and encourage students to make it a habit to join us.
Intramurals is a fun after-school program run by Mr. Norris. Two days a week, 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade students get to come to the gym after school at 2:50 pm and participate in a variety of team games. These games allow students to work on their teamwork and sportsmanship in a fun, coach-like environment. Some of the games we play come from the traditional sports like soccer, volleyball, flag football, and lacrosse. However, we also play a number of non-traditional games such as badminton, Takraw, speed ball, and Ultimate Frisbee. These games are designed to improve student's agility, endurance, and hand-eye coordination.
Intramurals is a great way for your student to learn how to be a productive member of a team and take instruction from a coach in a game situation. Spots fill up fast, so make sure to get your permission slip to Mr. Norris as soon as you can. Hope to see your student there.
If you have any questions about Intramurals please email Mr. Norris.

Meadow Point Student Council is a student-led group who plans school-wide activities and events, organizes community service projects, and just makes Meadow Point a better place to be. Under the direction of Mrs. Tretten and Mr. Vick, students learn how to collaborate, organize, problem-solve as a group and refine their leadership skills.
Past events included a canned food drive in which students collected almost 800 non-perishable food items that were then distributed to families in our community. Students sold Valentine lollipops and used the profits to purchase a tree for the playground. Students also organized Read Across America day complete with a flash mob encouraging students to read. And last but not least, the annual Meadow Point Talent Show was organized by Student Council members with talent selected by Student Council officers.
Meadow Point Video Club for Morning Announcements
5th Grade students at Meadow Point host our daily morning announcements via Google Hangouts on Air that are only shared with our teachers and shown in their classroom. Each morning student anchors come in and practice reading a prepared script for the day while other students anchor the day's weather, history, and sports. Mr. McDowell, our principal, joins us too to read the "words of wisdom". We have a technical director (TD) who switches between the laptops set up to record the anchors.
This club is open to all 5th Graders at Meadow Point Elementary. A calendar for the next month is distributed to all of the 5th Grade Classrooms listing the six different jobs: anchor 1, anchor 2, weather, history, sports, TD, and extra for the show. Students need to fill out the application to be apart of this club. Based on the student's availability and what openings we have, they will be put on the calendar for the following month. Once a student is assigned a job and day, they will report to Mr. Vick's room that morning to start practicing for that day's show.
