Bingo Chair/Co-Chairs Needed

Lost and Found
A reminder from Lost and Found: please label your winter gear and hoodies that kids just love to take off! The clothing that has remained for more than a month (or 2/3 months) will be donated over winter break. So much has been lost we added a table! Please encourage your child to check it out!

Water bottles galore are showing up in Lost and Found! Please add your child's name to their water bottle. Using a piece of tape is great!

Lost and found is in need of volunteers! This is a great way not only to help, but also to find things that are lost. Please reach out if you would like to sign up to volunteer!

Meadowbrook Online Directory
The start of the school year is a great time to either register with our Meadowbrook Online Directory or check your profile for any needed updates.
Register and Search the Directory
Did you receive two handouts at Open House, one for the Parent Portal and one for the Online Directory, and not know the difference? You're not alone!
The Online Directory is a PTO-sponsored student & family directory that helps you connect with other families. The District also collects your contact information via the Parent Portal, but this data is not searchable by families.
The Online Directory is updated! Download the PTOffice App or visit to search the directory. Please register for the directory, if you haven't already. We are hoping to get 80% participation and are currently at 63% school-wide. Third grade already hit the participation goal with 81% of students listed in the directory!
Calling all Mingle Volunteers!

If you'd like to be part of the Mingle's future success, we have opportunities for you! Any and all volunteers for the next Mingle should email to express your interest. The 2021 Meadowbrook Mingle raised over $32,000 for our community.
Save the Date: Mingle 2022 Will Be April 18th - 22nd, 2022
