Principal's Corner

"We empower our students to discover, develop, and demonstrate highest and best educational results"

Dear Parents,

 My name is Duane West and it is a great honor and pleasure to serve as an instructional leader of Meadows Elementary School. I am pleased to have you as a partner in this educational year.  As the year progresses, and as you become either more informed or more puzzled, we encourage you to call the school and talk with those who might be able to help you. If your question deals with in-class events, please ask to speak with the teacher.  If it deals with the overall program, curriculum, or activities, please contact me directly.

One of our goals is to ensure that parents, guardians, and students feel at home at Meadows Elementary School. Our priority this school year will be to meet the "Transformation Challenge." Our challenge will be to continue to make strides in the following areas: teaching, learning, parental and community involvement, and school operations.  Our objective is to obtain measurable improvements that will enhance student achievement. To accomplish that, you will have many opportunities to attend Parent-Teacher Conferences, become a member of the Parent Teacher Organization, School Leadership Team, and participate in other school activities.  In addition, we will provide you with information about events and activities throughout the school year.

You will also want to look at the Parent/Student Handbook.  It does a good job of explaining a typical year at our school.  By reading it, you will have a better idea of what to expect.

We are glad to have you with us this school year, and we want to assure you that we will do our best to help your child experience academic, social, and emotional growth.  With your help and cooperation, this should be an excellent school year.


In Partnership,


Duane West, M.A.Ed.
