Welcome back to another great year at Meadow Wood Elementary. We are all so excited to have the children back and see them so ready to learn. We have a lot in store for our students this year. We are excited about such things as the district fine arts field trip to Jones Hall, and inviting an author from Writers’ in the Schools into our classroom. We hope each child in our class this year will grow to love learning as much as we do.
