Today, January 30, 2015, East Meadows is celebrated the 100th day of school.  Many classrooms were doing fun activities around the number 100.  The Kindergarten wore shirts to school with 100 things on them.  Who were those 100 year old Kindergarten teachers?  The first grade strung 100 Froot Loops on string making a necklace, they colored 100 shaped eye glasses, they drew a picture of themselves looking 100 years old, they did 100 exercises, and they took a die-cut 100 and made it into a picture.  Second grade had a pajama day to celebrate.  Each student brought small candies to share, they made 100 shaped glasses and wrote about how they would spend $100.  Mrs. McQuivey’s class wrote on hearts, “100 ways to thaw a frozen a heart,” to decorate their door.  Some of Miss Lambert’s class dressed as 100 year old people.  Happy 100 Days of School!

East Meadows held their annual Science Fair, Wednesday, January 28, 2015.  The 5th and 6th grade students have been learning about science and were able to pick a science project and display it for the fair. Many hours go in to preparing a Science Fair project. It is a good way for the students to implement the Scientific Method.  The students choose a topic and form a hypothesis. Then they get to conduct the experiment and find out if their hypothesis was correct or not.  They prepare an oral presentation and build a display board.  Thank you to all the parents who helped their student prepare and offered encouragement throughout the process.

A friendly reminder.  Please do not submit expired Box Tops, make sure that you trim the Box Tops along the dotted lines and please do NOT cut off the expiration date or they won’t accept them.  Start saving NOW for our School's Out Box Tops Drive in May 2015!

Sixth-grade students attended Brigham Young University’s Sports Hero Day, on January 22, 2015. There they met with BYU athlete’s and volunteers who serve as positive role models to children. They talked about reaching goals, heroism, sportsmanship, etc. Students not only watched demonstrations but actively participated in various sports along with students from other schools in the local area. They played football and volleyball with some of the college athletes. They played Sharks and Minnows with the Baseball and Softball Players.  The met some of the Cheerlearders and Cosmo. Chelsey, a student, said "she had a great time."  East Meadows wishes to thank BYU for providing this fun activity for our students.

One of the highlights of the week for our sixth graders is when they get to go down to Kindergarten and be with their Kindergarten Buddies  This is Mrs. Tomadakis' class helping in Mrs. D'Haenen's Kindergarten class.  The sixth graders get to help with various projects while in the classroom.  Sometimes they do art, or writing or read a book with them.  The sixth graders enjoy helping the Kindergarten students learn and excel.  It is a fun way for the sixth graders to interact with younger students in a positive and uplifitng enviroment.  The Kindergarten students think it's way cool to have an older student as their friend.  Sometimes you see the older kids saying, "Hi" to them passing in the hall and can see the Kindergarten student beaming because someone knows their name.
