End-of-Year Programs

Kindergarten Class of Mrs. Taylor Prepared for Program

Family and friends filtered in and out of East Meadows Elementary as they watched the end-of-year programs. Each grade focused on themes they have learned about throughout the year. Pre-school children got to say “goodbye” animal style. The first and second grades shared what they’ve learned about friendship, community, and strengthening relationships. The third-grade classes ended their program with a parent showcase where students shared their writing, poetry and acting abilities. Visitors listened to names of places they’ve probably never heard of while fourth graders sang about Utah. And fifth graders talked and sang about their love for America.

Cruise Day

East Meadows fifth-grade students earned their way to Cruise Day. Students have been working hard earning ‘cruise points’ by demonstrating responsible behavior at school. For their reward they got to dress for an island cruise, sample island buffets, and play water games. East Meadows congratulates the students on their hard work.

Teacher of the Year

East Meadows congratulates Neeley Kay for being chosen as Teacher of the Year. Each year the Nebo School District chooses one outstanding teacher for this award. Mrs. Kay is an excellent instructor and is well-deserving of this award.

Fifth graders at East Meadows Elementary have been investing some time into learning their states. On Wednesday, May 12, family members and friends got to see the results. Students learned major cities and landmarks, wrote a state report that included interesting facts, and designed their own state shirt. Visitors enjoyed seeing their displays and answering trivia questions the students had prepared for them.

Hogle Zoo Trip

On Friday, April 30, the East Meadows Kindergarten classes went to Hogle Zoo. This is a tradition the students enjoy each year. This year was a little different because of the weather. Instead of the usual spring-like temperatures, students bundled up for the wet weather as they visited with the animals. When asked about their day at the zoo, most students commented, “It was cold.” The cats seemed to like the cooler weather though because they were quite active. Among many other animals, students enjoyed seeing wolves, giraffes, and peacocks.
