    Welcome to Meadow Ridge PFE (Parents for Education)! 

    School Supply Kit

    School Supply Kits are available to order online now through June 12th.

    Please support the Meadow Ridge PFE and also save yourself the hassle of supplies being out-of-stock at local stores!  Please also note that each grade level requires headphones/ear buds with a microphone - however these are NOT being sold by EPI this year so you will need to purchase them on your own.

    The PFE appreciates your support! If you have any questions at all, please feel free to email Kim Domagala (PFE School Supplies Coordinator) at kim@gtmechanical.com.

    What is Parents for Education?

     

    Welcome to the 2020-21 school year at Meadow Ridge.  We are looking forward to an exciting year full of learning and fun.  You might be wondering what you can do to help make this the best school year for your child or children.  Did you know that there is a way to help make the school experience better for everyone in which you can help when your schedule allows?  Did you know that if you have a special talent in event planning or organization, you can assist this wonderful school with your specific talent?  This amazing organization is the Meadow Ridge Parents for Education (PFE for short).

     

    Meadow Ridge PFE works in conjunction with Orland School District 135 PFE to enhance the school experience for all students and staff.  Meadow Ridge PFE meetings occur one Wednesday per month at 9:15 am via Zoom.  Zoom links and meetings agendas will be sent via email.  Please email us at pfemeadowridge@gmail.com with the subject line “Add to List” to be added to this contact list (members from last year please repeat this step so you are put on the 2020-21 contact list).  At these meetings, we discuss fundraising initiatives, various functions at the school sponsored by the PFE and budgetary decisions.  All it takes to be a part of this group is membership in the PFE.  Membership is $15 per family, regardless of the number of children in the family, the number of schools in District 135 that you are attending or the number of parents joining.  You can easily pay for membership in Skyward if you did not do it at registration.

     

    Even if you can't attend all meetings or events, your membership is greatly appreciated!  Last year, the Meadow Ridge PFE supported a wide variety of items and events to enrich our school.  Did you know that support from the PFE makes possible items like subscriptions to BrainPop, popcorn parties and other holiday party treats, Play-a-Thon treats, family science night, family reading night, all school assemblies and an author visit to the school?  Last year we purchased a couch for the library and a classroom set of coding robots.  We are still figuring out how best to support our students and staff this year and we need your input and support.  If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to reach out to us at pfemeadowridge@gmail.com!  New members are always welcome, we look forward to seeing you this year!
