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 _____ !

It is the mission of Meadowthorpe Elementary Staff to educate all students to be productive and responsible members of a changing society by assuring quality instruction in a safe, caring and diversified environment.

It is our mission to provide a safe, positive, and motivating environment in which students will learn and reach their highest potential through the cooperative efforts of our students, parents, staff, and community.
