Welcome to the Meadowland Parent-Teacher Organization!
What makes our School Cool? Here are two reasons for 2013:
| || || 1. Meadowland received the Energy Star award for the 6th straight year in October 2013, making in one of the top 5 Energy-saving schools in Loudoun and more efficient than 75% off all buildings of its class in the USA! ... not to mention it saves taxpayer dollars.

| || || 2. Meadowland exceeded Virginia annual measureable objectives in every category in 2013 (shown through SOL testing). Our school did this despite the added challenges of large economically disadvantaged and English learning populations. Click on the left for more info.|
What is the PTO?
The PTO is a group of parents and Meadowland teachers that come together to find ways of improving the educational experience for our children. The PTO hosts several events to unite students, parents, and teachers outside of the classroom so we can better know each other and have fun too! The fundraisers the PTO sponsors go towards supporting improvements to the school (such as technology, the running track, etc), helping teachers with their needs, and more. We are an all-volunteer group that works because of parents like you that donate a few hours every month or two to help our kids, their peers, and their teachers.
How do I volunteer at the school? (click link to sign-up site)
You can sign up to volunteer at the Back-to-School night, at any PTO meeting, or by emailing the PTO President, Vice president, or secretary at the emails addresses listed on this site. PTO can use volunteers to help look for grants, coordinate a fundraiser, help at an event, or even staple together papers for the teachers. Please email any of the PTO officers if you would like to help and want to know what opportunities there are. The more help, the less we each need to do individually.
Is there a cost to be in the PTO?There is no cost other than your time, but we do ask a $10 donation to help support the various activities the PTO sponsors. We will also email out minutes from the PTO meetings that you may miss if you are a PTO member; we'll also post a summary of the minutes on this site.
