As both a parent and staff member at Meadows Elementary I cannot be prouder of the students, staff and families of our community. Not only is Meadows dedicated to providing a well rounded educational experience for all children, but we are equally dedicated to creating an environment where all feel welcomed and valued. The aftermath of the pandemic has been our top priority, so we have safety protocols in place as well as additional mental health and social emotional learning supports. We have several events throughout the year that encourage family connections with the school. Meadows is a family and we welcome new additions throughout the year.
As a Science, Technology, Mathematics, Arts and Engineering (STEAM) school, we believe in giving students the experiences that will allow them to be competitive and marketable in their future. We are partners with the Tech Museum as one of the first recognized Tech Academies of Innovation. MOre than anything, our partnership brought professional development to develop our engineering mindsets and approach the world with a problem solving mentality. All of these opportunities have one thing in common, and that is we believe in fostering thinkers. Young thinkers who will grow to be our future leaders.
Although STEAM is of vital importance to us, we believe that every child is a genius and we need to provide a variety of opportunities for them to demonstrate their talent. Given this, we also have partnerships with Little Heroes for a recreation program, San Jose Jazz Progressions for a music program and Audacity Performing Arts that has provided a variety of offerings from dance, illustrations and podcasting. In addition we provide opportunities for students to demonstrate leadership in our Student Council.
Thank you for visiting our website and more importantly for being a part of the Meadows family.
