Inside those walls, our devotion to the Cobbley program’s reliance on traditional educational methods continues to pay dividends, as seen by our students’ nationally-normed test scores far outpacing their private and public school counterparts.

T

he alphabet is one of the first codes we master as young children. Once deciphered, this string of 26 letters provides the building blocks of language and learning and provides us the tools necessary to express ourselves and connect with the world.

The alphabet gives us so many things - the periodic table and the Declaration of Independence, the words of our mission statement and our School motto, books like Moby Dick and Wonder, and useful shorthand like LOL, OMG, and, of course, TMS. But TMS is more than just three letters. Just as the alphabet provides an invaluable instrument for expression and engagement, The Meadows School gives academically able and ambitious students the tools they need to grow intellectually, personally, and socially: a rigorous curriculum, a community of peers who are looking to be challenged, and infinite possibilities for the future. We invite you to explore the ABCs of TMS, from where your Annual Fund dollars go to the hundreds of different ways our students, parents, faculty, and staff contribute to making The Meadows School so special. Enjoy!

A

is for Annual Report

If you think the Honor Roll of Donors, The Meadows School’s Annual Report, is a year-end accounting of the donations we have received and a listing of people who have made those donations, you are correct. It’s a place to find financial charts, lists of endowments, and the names of those who have given to the School. But it is also a place to reflect on the past year and to find stories and photos that show the impact that your donations have on the students, families, alumni, and faculty of TMS. In this report, you will read about the many ways your Annual Fund dollars help TMS. Beyond the normal classroom activities, TMS Annual Fund supports all of the extras: the Lower School trips to the fire station and the 11th grade college visits, the band concerts, the art shows, and the plays, the 17 varsity sports teams, and 15 Good Citizenship Programs. In short, they turn TMS from a good school to a great school. We hope our Honor Roll of Donors provides some insight into the countless ways that The Meadows School works every day to provide the best education in the region in a safe learning environment for your children. We hope you will continue to support the School through time, talent, and treasure, and we hope you know how much we appreciate all you do.

B

is for Band, Drumline, Orchestra, and Strings. If you have ever enjoyed a musical performance in the Peccole Center for the Arts, you know our students have talent. Our music teachers work with hundreds of students throughout the school year, teaching some who have never before picked up an instrument to others who have performed at Carnegie Hall. Over a dozen concerts are performed throughout the year, giving our young musicians the many opportunities to perform in front of live audiences. In addition, The Meadows owns hundreds of instruments that are available for our students on a daily basis. There are countless studies showing the benefits of music education, including brain development, problem solving, teamwork skills, and empathy. We are fortunate to provide these benefits to TMS students every day.


C

is for Clubs. At The Meadows, we understand that our students like to be engaged in many different activities. We are committed to supporting students as they discover new interests and deepen the passions that aid in their growth. Clubs not only provide occasions for Meadows students to explore and expand their individual interests, but they allow Middle and Upper School students the opportunity to learn and demonstrate leadership skills. Clubs at TMS include, but are not limited to, the Women’s Empowerment Club, Model UN, Science Bowl, Best Buddies, and STEM Club, as well as ten honor societies. The members of these clubs raise awareness, participate in service learning, and represent the School honorably in the community.

Since the late 1990s, the TMS Forensics Team has built a powerful local, regional, and national reputation. Nearly 25% of TMS students participate in the debate program during their Upper School career, honing skills in public speaking, research, argument construction, peer mentorship, and critical thinking. The School has produced three individual national champions and another fourteen state champions in its short history, as well as countless team victories and honors. Forensics students travel all over the country to compete in tournaments and even host an invitational tournament for visiting schools on the TMS campus every fall.

10


E

is for Experiential Learning. At The Meadows we believe that meaningful learning can take place outside of the classroom. For many

years, travel has been a part of The Meadows curriculum, encouraging students “to become compassionate and productive members of the increasingly global society of the 21st century” and “inspiring them to seek knowledge independently and preparing them for higher academic pursuits.” In the 2015-16 school year, over 180 students traveled out of state on School-sponsored trips and for 2016-17, another 65 students will be added to that list. Trips to Pali Institute and Astrocamp for seventh and eighth graders allow students to bond and develop team-building skills early in the academic year. Tenth graders will travel to the nation’s capital for an integrated learning opportunity, tying in their studies from US History and American Literature, both requirements in the sophomore curriculum. Finally, the juniors will travel with their college counselors to explore dozens of universities and to visit TMS alumni in preparation for the college application process.


F

is for Field Trips. From delivering pumpkins to hospitalized children on Halloween, to visiting a courtroom and arguing the mock trial of Lee Harvey Oswald, Meadows students are afforded the opportunity to leave the classroom and participate in meaningful activities in the Las Vegas community. Field trips are a vital part of The Meadows experience as they provide exposure to arts and culture, let our children learn and experience things from first-hand sources, and make our students more engaged, intellectually curious members of society.

12


G

is for Good Citizens. Dr. LeOre Cobbley believed that successful education is most readily accomplished in an environment of serenity, where good manners and good citizenship are expected. This educational philosophy is practiced every day in the classroom, in the hallway, and on the playground. Throughout the year, over a dozen programs are presented to Lower School parents and students featuring topics as varied as cultural literacy, Shakespeare, insects, and love of animals. While the themes and presentations might differ, the message of good citizenship is reiterated. These programs also teach public speaking skills that are carried throughout each student’s life.


14


H

is for Homecoming. Homecoming continues to be one of the most fun and exciting traditions at The Meadows School. For decades, fans have come to cheer on the Mustangs as they work to bring home a victory. But Homecoming is so much more than what

happens on the field. It is the community that comes together before the game proudly wearing their Mustang attire, enjoying dance contests, bounce houses, and visiting with friends over delicious food-truck fare. It is parents volunteering countless hours to create a carnival for the whole School. It is our youngest students developing a love for TMS athletics at an early age. Homecoming is the wonderful culmination of faculty, staff, and parents and students joining together to create a night of community, fun, and school spirit.


is for Internships

The Meadows School Alumni Association welcomes all graduates of The Meadows into a society that aims to connect alumni back to the School and to help them with their future aspirations. This process begins before students graduate with several initiatives, including the Senior Internship Program. Every senior is paired with a professional, usually an alumnus or parent, matched according to the student’s interest; they then work with that professional for the week. Students have interned with attorneys, physicians, politicians, and business owners, just to name a few. Seniors leave the week with a small glimpse into professional life, and some internships have evolved into employment after graduation.â€

16


is for Kickball...foursquare, and buried treasure. The faculty and staff at the LeOre Cobbley Lower School know that learning and fun do not have to be

K

mutually exclusive. Physical education and lunchtime play are integral parts of the day for all of our young Mustangs. Enjoying sports and games, learning teamwork and communication, and forming lifelong friendships are skills and memories that the students carry with them as they continue their TMS careers. Parent Play Days on the Mary B. and Fred Smith Lower School Playground have expanded the experience to include parents as well as students.

18


L is for Love of Learning. The Meadows School

aims to instill a love of, and respect for, learning in its students. This is a promise made by

the School to every family who enrolls at The Meadows. Every day the faculty and staff at

TMS are delighted to see this love of learning in

action. We see it in the clubs formed by students with a deep passion for history, STEM, and world languages. We celebrate as students return in the fall eager to discuss the books they have

read over the summer break. It is no surprise

when we hear of our alumni going on to receive

Master’s Degrees, JDs, MDs, and PhDs; they have an instinct to continue to challenge themselves

and to push further. We know our students love to learn because they come to school every day with a thirst for knowledge that is impossible to quench.

20


Starting in Middle School, students are exposed to a wide variety of athletic opportunities. As they move on to the Upper School, nearly 100% students play on at least one varsity team during their Upper School tenure. Over the years, the School has produced one Foot Locker Scholar, two Wendy’s High School Heisman winners, eight Nevada Interscholastic Activities Association (NIAA) Awards for Excellence, twenty NIAA

Academic State Championship Titles, and forty-nine NIAA State Championship Titles. Even though The Meadows athletic teams have enjoyed much success, TMS athletics is about much more than just wins and losses. TMS student-athletes learn the lessons of hard work, discipline, and teamwork in a supportive environment that consistently achieves excellence while always remembering that academics come first. We are proud of our athletic programs and the legacy of excellence which has been built upon the hard work and integrity of our student-athletes. 22


N

is for Neighborhood. The LeOre Cobbley Lower School was the first building built in Summerlin, and we are very proud of that fact. Mayor Goodman was

correct when she said the best way to build a great neighborhood is to build a great school! Summerlin and The Meadows School grew together, and together we both became thriving, beautiful communities. We are forever grateful to the Howard Hughes Corporation for our 40 acres, and we enjoy volunteering hours to clean the neighborhood around the School and to visit with the seniors across the street at Atria Seville.


O

is for Options and Opportunities. At TMS we believe that a strong liberal arts

education is the foundation for the rest of a person’s life. A future doctor is better served if they learn Shakespeare, just as a future actor should have an understanding of physics. But within this well-rounded approach, we also believe that students should have choices within the requirements. Electives in the arts, world languages, sciences, and humanities provide Middle and Upper School students the opportunities to participate in an array of interests. Students can deepen their passion by immersing themselves in a particular subject or explore various offerings to widen their knowledge base. Whatever the decision, students are exposed to countless options and opportunities and use the knowledge gained well after graduation.

24


P is for Parents

Well before we opened our doors that fateful September in 1984, our parents have been an integral part of our success. We are grateful for the volunteer room parents and concession stand helpers, the parents who catalog books in the library, and those who provides a good workspace for our students when they are studying at home. It is our parents who continue to be our biggest supporters in reaching our goals. With the generous leadership set forth by The Meadows School Parents Association, all TMS parents have a place to build and grow the School into a true community.

26


How does the nervous system sustain life? What is the symbolism of the olive tree in Homer’s The Odyssey? Where can I apply calculus in real life? What issues will define the next Presidential election and how can my voice be heard? How can I impact the world for the better? Just as Socrates wandered around Athens asking questions, our students ask questions to discover a deeper truth. Our teachers encourage thoughtful debates and discussions to ask and answer these queries.


From the very beginning, The Meadows aimed to bring the very best teachers to the School. These dedicated men and women provide the foundation for everything we do as an educational institution. Annual Fund dollars allow us to continue to recruit the very best faculty for our teaching needs. We are not bound to the local area in our searches but look around the globe for the very best educators in their subject, who are not only excellent in the classroom, but are a fit with the culture of the School.

28


S

is for Service. At the core of our mission, we believe that education carries with it an obligation to self, family, and community. To this end, our students have participated in service learning throughout the years through various clubs, classroom activities, outside organizations, and 2016’s first annual Day of Service, which celebrated our founders and their mission with a school-wide dedication to serving our community. Our students wrote letters to service men and women, cleaned local parks, and volunteered at soup kitchens, food pantries, and assisted living facilities; our entire student body went above and beyond their usual service projects and spent a day in April giving back.


T

is for Theatre. The theatre and musical performances at TMS are undeniably impressive. Five times a year, the faculty in the Peccole Center for the Arts work with students to perform musicals and plays, dramas and comedies,

classic and contemporary pieces. Our students not only perform on stage, but also build the sets, run the lights, create the costumes, stage manage, usher, and assist in the direction for all productions. Our young thespians have been invited to perform in competitions throughout the country and several of our alumni have gone on to professional careers in the theatre.

30


U

is for University. Since our first graduating class in 1991, every graduate of The Meadows School has been accepted to a four-year college or university. Our Office of Student Life works with two full-time college counselors and a comprehensive advisory program starting in ninth grade to map out a path for college admissions. Students are assigned an advisor and college counselor that they will work with leading up to the admissions process, where student and family meetings take place to determine a list of schools that are the right fit for them. Students and parents are encouraged to be active participants in the counseling program and to treat the search process as they would any long-term research project: with regular attention and a frequent re-examination of objectives.


V

is for Visual Arts. Our Visual Arts program provides a supportive and structured environment in which students are given solid training at every step of their creative journey. Beginning and Lower School students are introduced to a variety of media and tools through projects that are both playful and thought-

provoking. Middle and Upper School students hone skills in observation and execution as they cultivate individual expression and analytical understanding. Additionally, our “teach to the top” philosophy celebrates students’ best work, with regular art shows and competitions throughout the year.

X

is for Xenial. At The Meadows, we strive to make the School a hospitable place for everyone who visits our campus. This is especially true for the programs specifically set up to welcome prospective and new students to TMS. Middle and Upper School students are amazing assets, serving as hosts to those applying to the School. Upper School student ambassadors guide groups of eighth graders from around the city through TMS classes and common areas answering questions about the School. Our own sixth grade students spend three days in January hosting our current fifth grade students to teach them about the Middle School. Mustang Mentors, members of a new club, dedicate their time welcoming new Upper School students and helping them integrate into the TMS community.


Y

is for You. We extend our thanks to every donor who has contributed to TMS’s success. In the following pages, we recognize all of the

donors who made a gift the 2015-2016 school year. Your participation in the Annual Fund makes a difference to every student and teacher at The Meadows, and we could not continue to provide such a high level of education and experience without your help. Thank you!

36


Z

is for Zeal. TMS students amaze us every day with the great enthusiasm they show for everything that they do. From performing on stage or on the field, doing science experiments and high-level research, to leading the School in student government or community service, our students are doing extraordinary things in extraordinary ways. It is our sincere pleasure to see all of the things our Mustangs can accomplish here at school, in the community, and in their careers well after they graduate. Thank you for helping us accomplish our goals by supporting The Meadows School.

E

ach year, hundreds of alumni, parents, grandparents, faculty, staff, and students join together to give back to TMS. While TMS parents contribute most of the total dollars to

the Annual Fund each year, Mustangs of all affiliations have progressively rallied their support, empowering TMS to make an indelible positive imprint on the world. Over the past two years, faculty and staff giving has reached 100% participation and our parent donors have increased by more than 15%. More and more alumni have recognized the opportunities powered by Annual Fund generosity, and are proudly embracing their role as our next generation of philanthropic leaders. At The Meadows, we are developing leaders who know how to ask better questions, think critically, consider more perspectives, and collaborate effectively. TMS students learn how to succeed even when they are outside their comfort zones. When you support The Meadows, you help keep our mission alive by helping our students pursue excellence every day.
