Come visit us tomorrow at Back to School Night!

Stop by the PTSA table tomorrow during Back to School Night to pick up a free reloadable King Soopers gift card (you load it every time you buy groceries – whether in line at the store or using Click List – and Meadowlark earns $$!!!).

You can also see upcoming events and volunteer opportunities and you can become a PTSA member right there on the spot!

We hope to see you there!

We hope to see you there!

Volunteer opportunities via Help at School

A new one-stop-shop for volunteering and a school directory is coming to Meadowlark!

We’ve partnered with HelpAtSchool, a BVSD parent-founded and -run software that helps connect parents and students to both volunteer opportunities and each other.

Today you should have received an email providing information on how to register for the site. Once you’ve done so, you will be able to opt in to the directory and sign up for volunteer opportunities. A couple of things to note about the directory and volunteering:

  • You only give the information you want to give. You can choose to share your phone number and/or email address. You will never be asked to share your physical address.
  • You still can sign up for volunteer opportunities even if you don’t opt in to the directory. However, we will not be able to directly contact you through the site for specific events (ex: Volunteer needs for a PBL night).

If you missed the email from HelpAtSchool, you can sign up for an account on your own. On the website (helpatschool.org), choose Meadowlark from the drop-down menu.

We love volunteers!

Whether you’re a PTSA member or not*, and whether you are background checked or not** there are volunteer opportunities awaiting you here at Meadowlark! We will be managing all volunteer opportunities via Help at School, so it would be GREAT if you could sign up and stay aware of the volunteer opportunities at our school!

*if you’re not a member, and you would like to be, please sign up and join us (https://meadowlarkptsa.org/membership/)

*Remember, you need a background check to volunteer while students are present. Please visit the background check options page (https://meadowlarkptsa.org/volunteering/background-check-options/) to learn more.

If you have any questions, please contact our Volunteer Coordinator, Jessica Mackaro, at volunteer@mavsptsa.org.

Monthly Newsletter

Hello Maverick Families!!

Let’s give a big Mav THANK YOU to Jeanette Porter, who worked her miracles to put on the Back to School BBQ without a hitch! We hope you were able to stop by, see the Learning Communities and the rest of the school, meet the teachers and principals, and get a bite to eat!

Stay in the know – Subscribe to our website

This is our first PTSA newsletter to be delivered via our new website (hint, hint – if you haven’t done so already, please FOLLOW this site using the Follow button at the right, so you can stay abreast of all PTSA happenings!). We have a short list of things to cover to help get you registered as a Meadowlark PTSA member and to help us continue with a smooth year.

Membership

We are really excited to kick off our second year at Meadowlark and we’re hoping to maintain (AND GROW) our PTSA membership numbers! Parents, caregivers, grandparents, teachers, staff, and students can all be members of our PTSA. If you would like to become a member, or renew your membership, please do so on our membership page!

PTSA memberships are only good for one year (and they expire on June 30th of each year) – so if you were a PTSA member last year and want to be a member again this year, please be sure to fill out the membership form and pay your annual dues!

Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteers are critical in supporting Meadowlark and its Learning Communities. There are a variety of roles available to Meadowlark volunteers, including leading a committee to provide gifts to teachers and staff during Teacher Appreciation Week, working a booth at the Meadowlark Mingle, working with students in learning communities or in the Curiosity Center…to name a few. You do not need to be a PTSA member to volunteer at Meadowlark!

Whether you can commit to a half hour a month in a classroom or more time coordinating planning a special event; or whether you can support the school during non-working hours by making arts and crafts for classroom use or by collecting Longmont Dairy caps and turning them in for money … your volunteering helps our students every day in many ways!

If you are interested in learning more about the volunteer opportunities available at Meadowlark and if you are interested in getting your background check through BVSD (required if you plan to volunteer at the school and engage with students) please check out our Volunteer page.

First General Meeting of the year

We will hold our first General Meeting of the year on September 20th from 6:30 pm until 8 pm in the Heart. While you do not have to be a member to attend our General Meetings, you do have to be a member to vote during these meetings. We hope you can make it, as we want to meet you and talk with you and we’re excited to share what our PTSA did last year and how we plan to contribute to the school this year. We hope to see you there!

We have a vacancy in our President’s position. If you would like to lead our awesome group, please email our Vice President, Cricket Holshey, at vicepresident@mavsptsa.org.
