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. Also later in the day they participated in the 6th grade Olympics in honor of the Olympics starting in Greece.
What is Fuel Up to Play 60? Fuel Up to Play 60 is an assembly about nutrition and physical activity by the National Dairy Council (NDC) and NFL, in collaboration with the USDA, to help encourage today’s youth to lead healthier lives.
Fuel Up to Play 60 helps students make positive changes by improving opportunities to consume nutrient-rich foods and get at least 60 minutes of physical activity every day.
The students learned that eating a healthy well-balanced diet and exercise will help them academically too.
As part of the day the students were allowed to wear their favorite jersey or uniform to school to help them remember to have an active and healthy life style.
The fourth grade students enjoyed their annual field to Camp Floyd. The United States Army, Mormon Pioneers, Stagecoach Travelers, and the Pony Express met at Camp Floyd and the town of Fairfield. The Army arrived in 1858 and constructed Camp Floyd to suppress a supposed Mormon rebellion. The Army remained here for three years before being recalled for the Civil War. Today, Camp Floyd State Park features three structures and a cemetery. The fouth grade students got to go back in time to the 1860's and experience what life was like back then.
Third graders went on their annual trip to Salem Pond to explore the wetlands ecosystem. We got to take different water samples to study, observe the marsh, create a model habitat, and see what water does to a feather. We also had the privilege of learning about pollution from Mr. Hogle. Thanks so much to all our volunteers for helping us!
Fifth graders at East Meadows celebrated Colonial Day today. Students learned about what it would have been like to live in colonial days through active participation in a variety of activities. They wrote with feathers, made a horn book, a quilt block and a colonial sign. They dipped candle wicks, cleaned cotton and played a game called “ball and stick.”

I'm so excited kindergarten is here,
I know it will be a great year.
I'm a big kid now and I'm on my way,
To board the bus for my very first day.
My teachers are there waiting for me,
Right at the door is where they will be.
I'll make lots of friends and have some fun,
And before you know it, the day will be done.
The first day of Kindergarten was Tuesday, August 26, 2014. We are excited to Welcome these new students to East Meadows!
