Kindergarten experienced Nocturnal Animal Day on Friday. We dissected owl pellets, did a hedgehog art project, read with flashlights in our “bat cave”, worked collaboratively on a STEM activity (how to make foam bats fly), made a yummy spider snack & played a learning game with a pretend spider web.
4th Grade Earth Science Day- Meadowview 4th graders have been digging deep studying earth science. These students created models of the Earth’s landforms, volcanic eruptions, destructive earthquakes, and natural water filtration process. The students also dug into learning about the properties of soil and its layers. On days like this, “Science Rocks!”

After reading the story Ten Apples Up on Top, KA students participated in an engaging STEM challenge that required cooperation, communication & problem solving skills to complete. Students were given the task of stacking 10 styrofoam apples using Play-Doh, toothpicks & tag board. It was so much fun!
Picture packages were sent home on Friday. Retake day will be on Tuesday, 10/8. If students want retakes, they need to return their complete package from our first picture day to the office.
A great message from Miss Shaw about the impact our WORDS have on each other.... These fourth graders could NOT get rid of the damage caused by crumpling up a perfect piece of paper. What a valuable lesson! No matter how many times we apologize or how much regret we feel after saying UNKIND words, the damage has been done. WORDS can tear us apart or build us up. We have a choice. These students posted their papers on their lockers as a reminder of to speak encouraging words.

Third graders from Meadowview hunted for clues to Shipshewana's past during our Mayfest celebration field trip. Their tie-dyed tee shirts were a colorful splash and could be seen as students were reading signs and looking for their next clues. They found the artwork done by Mrs. Willard’s class, and saw Meadowview’s artists in the parade with Miss Wilson. This was a fun way to learn about the history of our community and celebrate May!
Did you know that the tulips and daffodils around our school were planted by third graders? This landscaping project began in 2002 in celebration of Miss Rumphius Day, a fictional character who wanted to make the world more beautiful by sowing lupine seeds around her town. Every fall the current third graders plant and replant the bulbs. Thank you, third graders and teachers, the blooms are beautiful.
Meadowview Third and Fourth Graders have been working hard applying skills they have learned to solve complex, multi-step mathematical problems. All their hard work earned them tickets and tokens to spend at the first ever Meadowview Magnificent ILEARN Carnival! A fabulous time was had by one and all!
On Thursday, April 11th Meadowview Elementary Reading and Math Club students celebrated their spring Parent Night with a trip to Crazy Pinz. Students earned their trip and a parent’s trip by completing at least five of the six weekly math and/or reading activities at home. The evening was filled with bowling, laser tag, a ball obstacle course, arcade games, food, and fun. For many, it was their first experience bowling or playing laser tag, which led to much entertainment. The evening was a great time for parents and students to enjoy each other and celebrate all their hard work. The outing was enjoyed by all who attended!!!
