King Arthur Flour, America’s oldest flour company, went on a mission yesterday to teach students at East Meadows how to bake fresh, nutritious bread from scratch as part of their Life Skills Bread Baking Program. The East Meadows National Honor Society hosted the assembly for 4th, 5th, and 6th-grade students. Students learned about whole grains and how to incorporate them into their diet. King Arthur Flour sent home enough ingredients with each student to make 2 loaves of bread—one to eat at home and one to donate to the Provo Food and Care Coalition or to other members of the community. The bread-baking activity provided students a hands-on approach for learning math, science and sharing with the community while having fun.

It’s all about science at East Meadows. Students attended an assembly where Brigham Young University physics students talked about science and performed various experiments. Among other topics, students learned about kinetic energy and that energy is always conserved. They also learned that even though the lights in our homes look constant, they are actually flickering at a rate of 60 x second. Students especially liked watching the floating pop bottle.

Internet Safety Assembly

NetSmartzKids Internet Assembly

On January 27, all the students at East Meadows Elementary gathered for an assembly about internet safety.   NetSmartzKids, a program of the national center for missing and exploited children came and gave a presentation to the students about how they can be safe on the internet.   Some of the issues that were discussed were spam or junk email, cyber bullies, not giving out personal information, and never meeting up with someone you meet while online and spending too much time online.   Parents or caregivers, educators, government officials, law enforcement, and youth organizations that want to learn more about the Internet and the possible dangers to children online should visit www.NetSmartz.org.

BYU Sports Day

On January 20, East Meadows sixth-grade students went to Brigham Young University. BYU athletes spoke to students about choosing heroes that have accomplished their goals and dreams by working hard. Students not only watched demonstrations but actively participated in various sports along with students from other schools in the local area. Among the sports were soccer, golf, football, and basketball. One student, Kearstin Ferre, said her favorite part of the day was playing volleyball with kids from another school. East Meadows wishes to thank BYU for providing this fun activity for their students.
