As part of the sixth-grade Greek unit they performed parts of the play "The Odyssey" by Homer. The ancient greeks were great storytellers. The Greeks also loved heroes. One of their heroes was King Odysseus. A man by the name of Homer who lived at the end of Grecian Dark Ages collected the stories and with gods, and goddess', and many mythical creatures the stories of Odysseus have become known throughout the ages. The students made their own props and costumes. They did a very fine job performing and learning at the same time.
The third-graders at East Meadows went on a field trip to Salem Pond on Thursday, September 19. There they were able to look at and study pond life. Some were able to feed the ducks that reside there at the pond. They came back and made posters about their experience.

East Meadows started off the school year with Mustang Week! Mustang week is a school spirit week where the students and staff get to enjoy some fun activities while getting to know one another and supporting the yearly theme. The theme for the school year is “East Meadows ROCKS!” The week started off with a grade-level art project depicting the theme. Tuesday was a school wide family swims party at the Spanish Fork Swimming Pool. Wednesday was crazy shoe and sock day. Thursday was a field day outside on the grass. And Friday the students enjoyed a trampoline assembly teaching them about taking care of their bodies. It was a great kick-off to a great new year. Let’s make East Meadow’s “ROCK” this year!
