Our 6th graders in Miss Bosch's class helped the 1st grade students in Mrs.Beary/Peterson on their chrome books today.

The students built turkeys with Google Slides, then they wrote a story about their picture.

The 1st grade students love to have the 6th grade students come and help them out with technology!

Red Ribbon Week

Attributions: 

Monday was the kick off to our Red Ribbon Week. Each student made a pledge on a key to remain Drud Free.  They were also given a real key to put on their back pack to help them remember their pledge.

Thanks to the PTA for all the work they do to help our school!

Red Ribbon Week

Attributions: 

Monday – “Love yourself”  Wear RED

  • You will receive keys for the students to each write a drug free pledge on.  Have them write the pledge, cut out the key and take your class set to the office before lunch.  The PTA will come in that day and hang them up at the front of the school.
  • The kids will each receive a key on a red ribbon to tie onto their backpacks. The national theme is, “Your Future is Key, Stay Drug Free”.
  • Spanish Fork police department will be here to do an assembly to kick off the week.  We will begin at 1:25.  Have your class cleaned up before you come.  The assembly will go to the end of the day. 

Tuesday – “Team up against drugs”  Wear your favorite sports attire

  • When your class goes to art this week they will paint a rock. We would like each child to bring in a small rock.  Each rock should be no larger than the size of an egg or the size of their palm.  This goes along with a book, Only One You, that the PTA has purchased. Plan a time on your art day that you can read the story to your class and we will pass it around. They will paint their rock and take it home to place somewhere as a reminder that they are important in making the world a better place. 

Wednesday – Internet Safety – Wear WHITE and THINK

  • T-is it Truthful
  • H-is it Helpful
  • I-is it Inspiring
  • N-is it Necessary
  • K-is it Kind

Thursday – “Turn your back on drugs” Wear your shirt backwards

Friday – School Pride – Wear your school shirt or school colors

  • Cougar Pride assembly at 1:45 – I am assuming 30-45 minutes but I haven’t heard back from them about the details.

Mulan Jr. PlayTryouts

Dear East Meadows Parents and Students

Auditions will be held after school this Thursday and Friday, Nov 2 and 3.  Anyone in first through sixth grade may audition.  There is paperwork in the office with further directions.  You may pick it up any time the office is open.  If you can't make it to auditions, you may submit a video by Friday to be considered for a lead role.  Anyone that just wants to be in the ensemble, but cannot make it to auditions may still be a part of the play, but must submit all the paperwork.

We are so excited for Mulan Jr. auditions this week. I just wanted to give you a
little more information about the schedule, cast, songs, costumes, participation
fees, and to introduce the directors to you.
