A New School for Meeting Street Elementary @ Burns

Story by cnmAdmin2030 / September 10, 2019

The Meeting Street Elementary @ Burns’ Turtles returned to their brand new school on Wednesday, August 21. Students were met outside with high fives and smiles from their teachers, the MSS network team, and members of the Dorchester-Waylyn Neighborhood Association before entering the new school for a celebratory countdown to begin the year. Following the countdown, students attended “Turtle training.”

“Turtle training teaches students the expectations for what they are going to go through the first five days of school. At the end of the week, students graduate training and earn their bracelet that celebrates all the hard work they’ve done as they acclimate themselves to our school culture,” said Principal Chad Weiden.

To see Turtle Training in action, check out the first day highlight video below.

“MSA is a family. Once you’re in, you’re in. They said they would follow our kids from K-3 to college and they actually lived up to what they said they would do. Not only did MSA challenge my daughter academically but it also exposed her to new things that she probably wouldn’t have been exposed to at our previous neighborhood school. Our journey at MSA was exciting and rewarding. They actually walk the walk.”

“Meeting Street Academy is my family. They taught me that I am valuable. I am an asset to the world…They asked me, ‘What is your dream?’ I had never been asked that before. The MSS community gives me the strength to pursue my dreams.”
