On July 1, Meadowbrook officially welcomed our new Head of School, arvind grover. arvind was appointed as Meadowbrook’s seventh head of school last September. Before coming to Meadowbrook, arvind most recently served as the assistant head of school and director of studies at Grace Church School in New York City. This summer, arvind spent time meeting with every member of the faculty and getting to know the Meadowbrook culture. This week, he will be moving into his new office, centrally located in the new Learning Commons off of the rotunda. arvind is looking forward to seeing all the students when they return to campus next week. Parents, please be sure to stop by the morning coffees on September 6 and 7 to meet arvind and reconnect with other Meadowbrook families!
It is hard to believe that the new Learning Commons and Lower School building will be opening on September 6, our first day of school. For over a year, the construction team including Shawmut, OMR, ZZA, and Meadowbrook administrators and volunteers have been working tirelessly to make the dream of the new building a stunning reality. Meadowbrook families will be dazzled by the light-filled rotunda, and our students and faculty will love learning and growing in their spacious, well-equipped classrooms. From a few shovelfuls of dirt back in June 2016, to a beautiful new campus hub, our new Learning Commons and Lower School building will serve the Meadowbrook community for generations to come.
The week before school begins is always an exciting time around campus. Teachers are returning to their classrooms, anxious to meet their new classes and get started! This year is even more exciting than usual; the lower school faculty are moving into the new building, and many of the middle school faculty are moving their classes into spaces that are new to them. This shift has created a fun energy as teachers move into these new spaces and make them their own. This week, our teachers are all here at Meadowbrook, participating in meetings and trainings, stacking book shelves, laminating name tags, hanging up posters, and adding all those special touches that make our school unique.
