Meadows e-Directory

Last year we introduced the Meadows e-Directory which is an app where you will find Meadows family contact info, teacher class lists, sponsor info, etc.  Many of you downloaded the app (which works with iPhone and Android devices) and created an account last year; if you already have an account, you do not need to do anything new for this year.  Just log in as usual and the directory information will be updated for the 2016-2017 school year.

If you are new to Meadows, you should have received an email from DirectorySpot with directions on how to create an account.
