The sixth grade held their Egypt Walk on Friday, the 18th of October.   As a culmination of their unit on Egypt students made projects at home to show off the things they had learned.  They made sarcophagi, canopic jars, crooks and flails, sphinxes and pyramids from clay, candy, bread, wood, Lego’s and other such mediums to transform their classrooms into tiny museums.  They made Egypt’s flag, drew cross sections of pyramids, and wrote reports on the process of mummification and how to make papyrus and other facts about Egypt.  Parents and the rest of the school were permitted to come walk through their classroom museums and admire their work.

East Meadows enjoyed an energetic, fun, jump rope assembly on October 17, 2013.  The "Just Jumpin" jump rope workshop was made of kids of all ages.  They showed off their stunts accompanied by modern music.  Our students loved it.  They sang, clappped hands and smiled as the group dazzled them with some pretty amazing moves.  The "Just Jumpin" group is sponsored by Intermountain LiVe Well.  Their mission statement is: to inspire, motivate and educate children and youth through the unlimited opportunities that jump rope provides. Our purpose is to build in each team member attitudes of perseverance, dedication, cooperation, friendship, leadership and teamwork.

The week of October 14-21 was Ribbon Week at East Meadows.  To get in the spirit of each day the kids and faculty all wore the color of the day.  Each student was also given a bracelet for the color of the day.  Monday started off the week with "Turn off the TV and Talk Day."  The students wore yellow this day.  They were asked to turn off the TV and turn of your life!  They were encouraged to participate in a fun family activity instead of sitting in front of the TV.  Tuesday was Drug Free day.  The students were encouraged to wear red and they made posters in class pledging to be "Drug Free."  Wednesday we focused on standing up against bullying.  The color of the day was purple.  Some classes also made posters to pledge to be "Bully Free."  Thursday was our green safety day.  The students were greeted at the doors of the school by the Spanish Fork High School football team and cheerleaders.  They were all asked to walk or bike to school this day.  To finish off the week, the students wore white on Friday and were asked to discuss with their families Internet and media safety.  There is an Internet pledge that can be signed by both parents and students at: http://www.utahpta.org/internet-safety-powerpoint-presentation. Please take time to watch this and discuss the importance of safety on the Internet.  Altogether it was a great week.  Thank you to Mrs. Jenn Moxen, the faculty and the PTA for provided a fun and educational week!

Ducks, geese, chickens, rabbits, a dog, a cat, horses, a baby calf, a sheep and a goat are all the animals the Kindergarten students got to see at Clair and Brenda Christensen's Farm in Leland on October 7, 2013. Also as part of the field trip experience, Dina and Daisy, the Christensen's team of horses, gave the children a ride in a horse drawn wagon. They traveled the roads admiring the fields and animals of the surrounding homes. A big thank you to Clair and Brenda for making the field trip a success!

 

1st Grade Habitats

1st grade students showing their habitats diorama.

The first-grade students made habitat dioramas as part of their study of habitats. It always amazes me at creativeness of these projects.
