Art to Remember

Art Class

Now, parents can still order their child's Art to Remember items online!! We are no longer collecting money at school. After all orders are sent in, the art room receives a portion of the purchase total for use in buying art room supplies. The items are all sent to the school for delivery to families, and the original art is also returned to each student.

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.
