Staff Appreciation Week

Staff Appreciation week is designed to bring all Meadow Brook students, their families, and community organizations together to show appreciation for the dedication, effort, creativity of our teachers and staff. Every day of this special week, students have many opportunities to share small acts of gratitude, along with delightful treats, thoughtful gifts, and special activities prepared by parent volunteers for our teachers and staff. From secretaries to bus drivers, tutors to teachers, custodians to lunch ladies - we want to recognize all of their sacrifice and service to our children day in and day out.

Teacher and Staff Appreciation Week May 7-11, 2018

During the week of May 7-11, Meadow Brook Elementary's PTO, students and families will be celebrating our WONDERFUL teachers and staff!!  Please sign up to volunteer your time, tasty treats, or financial contributions!

Please take the time with your child to write a heartfelt message of thanks and appreciation and return the note as soon as possible. It can be for a teacher, bus driver, lunch helper or any member at Meadow Brook. The notes will be put in a special display to share with the entire school and a select few will be read during morning announcements each day.


In addition to sharing kind words of thanks, we are hoping to treat our teachers with some delicious meals and goodies! Of course, we can't do it with the help and support of our awesome Meadow Brook families, so we hope you will join us in thanking our teachers this week.  (Sign up here.) 


Tight on time but still want to help? You can still treat your favorite teacher or staff member to a delicious meal provided by Trailhead Cafe! Or perhaps a cup of coffee to help them get through the day - we will collect Keurig K-cups to replenish their supply! Sign up and send in your donation with your child or drop off in the office, attention to PTO - TAW 2018. Checks should be made payable to Meadow Brook PTO. We are also accepting gift cards to give away by random drawing. Please drop these off as soon as possible. 

Please note, non-food items can be dropped off in the lounge the week before, at your convenience. Monetary or gift card donations can be sent in the week before to the office starting on Monday April 30th through May 10th.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to e-mail me at or call, (616) 540-7369.

A huge thank you in advance for helping make this week special!!
