Country Meadows PTO, Jan. 29, 2021

We can hardly believe 2021 is almost through the first month and we have students back in the school building! It's so exciting what we have in store within the next few weeks for both remote and in-person students! It's definitely time to keep up with Social Media to make sure you don't miss anything coming up! Read ahead for details and registration links!


The PTO has an opportunity to sponsor a virtual STEM event for our students, but we need your interest feedback survey response ASAP! Please respond before Sun., Jan. 31, 2021!

Code Ninjas of Long Grove will collaborate with our PTO to host this unique virtual enrichment activity.

In order to assess the interest, we need parents to complete and submit this brief SURVEY.

The sessions will be divided by grade groups and will be held on different evenings.

Please note there will be only one session per student. There is a maximum capacity due to the recommended instructor:student ratio.


Our Cultural Arts Committee is been hard at work planning virtual assemblies for our students. We have the honor to have the incredible Brent Daniels hosting our Music Technology Careers in Cinema and the Arts, coming up on Feb. 24!

This is like nothing anyone has ever seen! Brent Daniels is an award-winning composer, producer, sound designer, and recording artist who uses the latest in music technology to sculpt sound and create music. This program is an excellent STEM/STEAM school assembly!

Using a digital sampling keyboard workstation, master-level musicianship, and a blend of high-energy music, audience participation, information, and humor, Brent Daniels creates an exciting one-of-a-kind performance that captures the imaginations of our students! Music Technology with Brent Daniels shows students the important relationship between the technology they have in their classrooms or at home and the creation of the music and sounds they hear on their iPads and on TV, in movies, and in video games.

Student volunteers will participate in the program to help Brent create unique on-the-spot sounds and–by the end of the show–an original song that will raise the roof!

Please watch for more details through teacher's announcements, Social Media, and Mrs. Bird's Principal Message.


Our virtual hands-on science event is scheduled for Thurs., Mar. 4, 2021!

We will send an email link to access the event.

Families will be required to pick up their student's science kit prior to the event.
