Santa Visits East Meadows

Santa made a special visit to East Meadows. He shared a book about the North Pole with the children. He told them about the work his elves do and all the stores at the North Pole. He also had his helper read a book he had been given by an author. What The Snowmen Do At Christmas. The children then had an opportunity to have Santa answer their questions. He was very jolly and happy to be with them. The children wrote a thank you letter to him. Mrs. Sayers ran into him when she was on vacation and renewed an old friendship. He visited her house with his sleigh and reindeer, in 1976. This was her first Christmas in America.

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

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.
