Degrees and Certifications:
Greetings on this cold day from Meadow Lane Elementary! As we look towards the month of March, I know we are all anxious to greet the warmer weather! This certainly has been a winter to remember. At the time of this publication, we will not need to make up any snow days at this point as they were built into the district calendar. We go by “minutes” in Olathe, not necessarily “days”. I know we are needing some consistency with our schedule! I’m hoping these first few days of the third quarter have proven to be good ones for you and your family. I am looking forward to spring and the promise of warmer weather!
A lot has been happening at our school, including some staffing changes.
2nd Grade: Marcy Good, second-grade teacher, has announced she is transferring to the district’s newest elementary school at the end of the year. Canyon Creek, in Lenexa, will open its doors in August. Mrs. Good will teach second grade at Canyon Creek. We wish her well and thank her for her service to our community, both as a parent for many years, and as a teacher. 5th Grade: Betsy Prestridge, fifth-grade teacher, has announced she is transferring to Canyon Creek as well.
Mrs. Prestridge will teach fourth grade at Canyon Creek. We wish her well and thank her for her three years of service to our community! The second and fifth grade teams are interviewing many perspective candidates and hope to announce new team members in the near future.
As I wrap up my comments in this month’s newsletter, I want to take the time to let you all know how much I appreciate the opportunity to work with your children and the staff here at Meadow Lane. It is an honor to serve our students, our community, and our staff.
