Principal's Message

It is an honor to enter the 2021-2022 school year as the next principal of Meadowview Elementary School. As I begin my seventh year at MES, I am more excited now than at any point in my 15 year career as an educator. Meadowview parents, teachers, and community leaders have shown me tremendous support since arriving at Meadowview Elementary School. You have taught me what it means to be a Mustang.
Thanks to each of you for choosing to send your child to MES. I believe we are building something special with the best yet to come. My vision for our school centers on empowering leadership capacity for all students. This means doing so academically, socially, and civically. You will be hearing a lot about leadership over the years. Serving as the principal of our great school presents an extraordinary opportunity to assist in the growth of the next generation of leaders. Students at MES need ongoing and meaningful opportunities to grow as leaders. The MES faculty, along with members of the community, will work diligently to provide them with such opportunities.
The wonderful parents of Meadowview Elementary have been and always will be an integral part of the success of our students. I am looking forward to continuing and expanding our work together to provide the children of Meadowview Elementary School the educational experiences they truly deserve. After all, the children of Meadowview deserve the very best.
The future is bright for Meadowview Elementary. For the opportunity to lead MES our students write the next successful chapters for our school, I am truly grateful.
Jimmy Marcum, Ed.D.
