Our History

We Celebrate a Long Rich History at Meadows Elementary

Meadows Elementary opened up in 1957.  It was  built by Miller and Drydahl Contractors. In 1969, the west wing was added. Another addition created a beautiful new gymnasium and stage area.

Principals include:  Ione McConkie, Audrey Snyder, Sharon Pitts, Alice Fuller, Jan Hawkins, Jan Hawkins, Susan Newton, Karen McDonald, and Cassandra Cook.

Despite being one of the oldest buildings in the district, our school is a beautiful showcase of long-standing school pride as we have journeyed through the historical past to the technology-rich present. Being a smaller, neighborhood school has always provided unique characteristics to our school.  In our hallways, you will see many portraits of former staff and student populations.

Once a Meadowlark–always a Meadowlark!
