Principal Froelich reads a story to studentsIn an effort to stay connected with students during mandated school closures due to COVID-19, Meadow Lake Elementary has begun reading bedtime stories to students virtually. Through a YouTube channel, staff are taking turns reading stories to students. These stories teach lessons ranging from patience to making mistakes.

Nancy Froelich, Principal at Meadow Lake, read the first story to students on March 17, 2020, with a special guest appearance from her puppy, Stella. In addition to producing a total of five bedtime stories videos thus far, staff also recently recorded an additional video of Principal Froelich drawing a puppy, encouraging students to draw from home. The videos have been posted on social media, as well as included in Meadow Lake's school newsletter for families to enjoy.

Robbinsdale Area Schools staff continue to find creative ways to connect with students during this time. "We feel it is important to provide our students with a familiar face during this time,” said Principal Nancy Froelich. “It's essential for our students to feel reassured and have some exposure to their school routine. We want them to know we are here, we are thinking of them, and we miss them," she continued.
