Message From Principal Katte:

Using Taylor Avenue as a one-way exit only street has made for safe, smooth, and fast drop-off/pick-ups!  Thank you parents/guardians, staff, and district support, and construction team!

Please remember to pull all the way up on our morning car-line and let your child out as soon as your car stops.

Please also remember to always walk in the yellow crosswalk areas.

Lastly, I am so proud of all of our kids in their seats ready to learn by 7:45 A.M.  Remember, if they are not, they will be marked tardy.

Thank you for your partnership; we had a great first few days!

Meadowthorpe’s Five Paradigms:

Every Mustang is a leader.

Every Mustang is gifted.

Every Mustang is at-risk.

We treat/teach every Mustang as if his or her parents are in the room.

Calumet Farm treats every foal like it is the next Triple Crown winner; we treat every Mustang as if he or she is the next President, inventor, author, artist, doctor, or next great _____ !
