Principal's Note

Dear Families, 

It is hard to believe that October has come to an end; we had a very busy month in our classrooms! Students enjoyed observing the weather changes, learning about various ways to be safe in the community and many participated in Special Olympics bowling. Several of our transition classrooms have been enjoying riding E-Tran and getting out in the community. Overall, students seem to be settling into their classroom routines and schedules. 

To end out the month, and in honor of the University of Michigan (UM) vs. Michigan State University (MSU) football game, we had spirit week. The students participated in crazy hair day, crazy sock day, hat day, and UM or MSU day. I do believe, from walking around to the classrooms, MSU was the favorite. It was fun to see so many students and staff  across the classrooms participating in the festivities and enjoying being a little silly at times. 

Keep an eye out for progress reports which will come home as we have ended the first quarter of the school year. School pictures were taken on October 25, and retake day will be November 16. Please contact the office if your child missed picture day. If you have any questions at any time please do not hesitate to reach out. We are happy to partner with you and your family in your student’s education. 

Thank you!

Classroom Spotlight- Mrs. Lundy’s “Creative Pulp” Room 

This year our transition students have been busy learning about the life skills they will need to become independent. One of the many transition goals we have is to prepare our students for the work world. The students are placed in volunteer worksites based on their job interests and skill levels throughout the community for the school year.  There, they will be taking direction from an employer and learning various job skills that can help further them in their future.


Another skill the students are learning this year is how to work as a team on an assembly line and create pulp paper to make greeting cards that we sell at our storefront classroom in downtown Charlotte.


Our Monday cooking group has been doing a great job of following recipes and preparing meals for the class. There are many skills that go into preparing a meal for 10 people!


In addition, the students participated in Special Olympics bowling which took place at the Royal Scot Bowling Alley in Lansing.

Happy Halloween

The students in Meadowview’s onsite classes at the Packard campus were in the holiday spirit, enjoying ooey, gooey pumpkin guts, when they got together to carve and decorate pumpkins for Halloween.
