Over 100 BIKE HELMETS were given away on Wednesday 5/21 as part of the PTA Safety Assembly! The PTA applied for and received the bike helmets from the Utah County Health Department because of the safety programs we've implemented at East Meadows. After the Safety Assembly on 5/19 which included Student Council, PTA, a bike safety video and a visit by Officer Warner of the Spanish Fork Police and registering 70 bikes and scooters, we pledged to be safe this summer and year round. THANK YOU to everyone that reviewed the safety pledge and returned it signed. You were entered into the drawing to receive a helmet! It was fun to see the happy faces of students and teachers as the helmets arrived. Remember to label your helmet with your name and that the PTA motto of "GREEN means GO safely" is practiced year round so practice safety this summer also. Thank you to East Meadows, the Utah County Health Department, the SFPD and the East Meadows PTA.
The 3rd grade students presented their end-of-year program on Tuesday, May 20, 2014. The theme of their program was: It's Easy to be Green. Reduce, Reuse, Recycle! They even made hand instruments out of recycled products. Thank you 3rd grade teachers for a great school year!
The PTA and the student council joined together to put on a safety assembly for our students. With school coming to an end and summer break fast approaching it is good to review some safety tips. They reviewed such things as bicycle safety, crossing the street safely, wearing the proper clothing, and stranger and pet danger. Officer Warner, from the Spanish Fork Police Department talked with students and encouraged them to follow these safety guidelines and to wear helmets when they ride their bikes or scooters. Each student was sent home with a safety pledge to be signed by them and their parents. If they are turned in they will be put in for a drawing for a helmet. The Utah County Department of Health donated 100 new helmets to our school. We want all of our East Meadows students to have a FUN and SAFE summer break.
We have great teachers and staff at East Meadows Elementary. The PTA, parents and students were able to express appreciation to the many teachers and staff at the school, by providing breakfast one morning, lunch another day and a sweet treat to end the week. The students could purchase carnations and give them their teacher. Thank you to all who helped in any way! Thank you teachers for making East Meadows the BEST school!
