Students at East Meadows Elementary have been participating in East Meadows Idol. Some students chose to go solo and others teamed up to showcase their various talents. Classmates have enjoyed watching their peers perform a number of things such as singing, playing the guitar, or piano and reading a poem.
Camile Biggs and Natalie Mecham were awarded a State Farm Good Neighbors for Good Schools Grant in the amount of $200. Students attended an assembly to see their teachers receive the award and enjoy a reader’s theater featuring the book, Wolf! Students were congratulated for their efforts in reading and encouraged to become good readers like the wolf. Mrs. Mecham explained that some time ago students had been given paper pizzas with no toppings; as they read, they got to add topping to their pizza. To celebrate the grant and to congratulate students for their reading, East Meadows third graders will enjoy a pizza party.
Maple Mountain High School's PTSA Service Club visited East Meadows 2nd-graders today March 10. The PTSA club provides service once a month. This month we were privileged to have them at our school. They visited the 2nd grade classes. They read with the students and performed other activities with them. After they helped in the classroom, they got to go outside to recess wih them. They played on the playground equipment, played football, red rover-red rover and other various activities. Thank you Laura Henry and the other PTSA volunteers for this wonderful service.
Students from Maple Mountain High School's Honor Society visited East Meadow's Elementary on March 2 to read to the 1st-3rd grade classes. They shared several of Dr. Suess' favorite books with our students. It was a fun event for our kids. Thank You Maple Mountain Honor Society!
Dads gathered up their kids and took them to the annual Dads and Donuts activity at East Meadows Elementary. Those that attended found a comfortable spot to read books and visit with neighbors. Everyone got to grab donuts on the way out. The event was well attended and is a great tradition that many look forward to each year.
On March 2, East Meadows third-grade students and family members watched the annual spelling bee. Eleven students participated in the event. Students spelled third and fourth-grade words with relative ease making this an impressive spelling bee. Congratulations to Bryce Marshall, the spelling bee champ for 2011. Bryce’s name will be engraved on a plaque donated by the Rotary Club. East Meadows thanks the Rotary Club and all who assisted.
