East Meadows Elementary has been participating in the GAINS Program

Growin Arts In Nebo Schools

Each year a Fine Arts Specialist works with the teachers of East Meadows Elementary to help integrate the arts into the classroom curriculum. This year we have a DANCE specialist working at our school. 

Human movement develops neural networks and memory. When dancing to learn, both halves of the brain are engaged and higher-order thinking skills are supported.

"Dancing is the loftiest, the most moving, the most beautiful of the arts, because it is not mere translation or abstraction from life; it is life itself."  ---Havelock Ellis


4th Grade Mountain Man Unit

The 4th grade students have been studying about the Mountain Men that use to live in our area. 

We were so lucky to have a "Mountain Man-Woman" come and visit the students today. She talked about how they traded furs for goods. The students loved learning about their ways.

The students earned "Beaver Pelts" for good behavior, participation, and being kind. They were then able to trade the "pelts" for goods. Each students brought some items they wanted to trade with others.  They had a great time learning about the Mountain Men and how they lived and survived back in the day.

4th Graders attend the Symphony

Last Friday the 4th graders at East Meadows were able to attend the Utah Symphony at Maple Mountain High School.

The students were in their best dress and on their best behavior!

We have some great students at East Meadows!
