Fifth Graders Learn About The Revolutionary War


Fifth Graders went on a field trip today. They walked to Centennial Park (soldiers had to walk a lot) and did Revolutionary War activities. These activities included making a hat (Yankee Doodle hat) with a feather, playing games (pick up sticks, cats cradle, and a solitaire game with beans), learning about Paul Revere's Ride, and learning some Von Steuben militia drills. The students had a great time.


Ms. Haskell's Class


Last week second grade learned about our community. We learned about the culture of Spanish Fork as well as the physical features that are unique to our city. The students had a lot of fun looking at a map of Spanish Fork and creating their own salt dough map adding physical features and important landmarks.

It was a cold day but the students had a great time! We have awesome students and staff at East Meadows!

Healthy Options for Students


Parents just a quick reminder that we have quite a few students with different allergies here at East Meadows Elementary.

When bringing treats in please be aware of the student's needs in your child's class. 

There are many healthy options out there, you may also consider non food items when bringing treats!

Thanks for your help in this matter!
