Maple Mountain High School's PTSA Service Club visited East Meadows 2nd-graders today March 10.  The PTSA club provides service once a month.  This month we were privileged to have them at our school.  They visited the 2nd grade classes.  They read with the students and performed other activities with them.  After they helped in the classroom, they got to go outside to recess wih them.  They played on the playground equipment, played football, red rover-red rover and other various activities.  Thank you Laura Henry and the other PTSA volunteers for this wonderful service.

The NED Show Assembly

The NED SHOW is America’s Most Popular School Assembly. We encourage nearly two million kids a year in all 50 States, plus Canada, England and Australia. More than 17 million kids have experienced NED to date! We have also performed many times at the White House!

The NED SHOW is high energy and lots of fun for kids. More importantly it teaches students what it takes to be champions at school and in life! NED stands for:

Never Give Up    Encourage Others    Do Your Best®

These three simple principles can make a profound difference in every student, as well as create a strong impact on the culture of your entire school.

Never Give Up (focus and persistence)
Encourage Others (kindness and shared learning)
Do Your Best® (diligence and excellence)
 
Improve Test Scores
We encourage kids to become champions at school by working hard in the classroom and by doing things “the best” way as their teachers instruct them. Many schools tell us The NED Show® inspired their students to achieve more academically and that it is a great “kick off” and motivator for testing.

Improve Student Behavior
The NED Show® emphasizes the importance of good character and helping others. Also, our performers can customize The NED Show® to reinforce and support your anti-bullying, anti-drug, or character building program.

The Buff Don’t Puff

Bob and Cindy Wakefield, Brigham Young University representatives, brought their “Buff Don’t Puff” program to East Meadows Elementary. They, along with student athletes, gave a presentation on the dangers of smoking. Students learned that for many serving time in the Utah State Prison their first mistake was choosing to smoke. Smoking can often lead to drinking, drinking leads to drugs, drugs lead to crime, and crime leads to prison. East Meadows wishes to thank the Wakefields for bringing this program to elementary schools. East Meadows also thanks Kyle Van Noy, Desiree Tran, and other athletes that serve as positive role models for their students.

Bread Donations

The East Meadows neighborhood was busy making bread last night. Students shared their bread with family, and members of the community. Many chose to bring their bread to school as a donation. The Provo Food and Care Coalition will receive more than 80 loaves of fresh homemade bread as a result of their efforts. That amount equates to more than 100 pounds of bread and is worth about $190! East Meadows thanks King Arthur Flour for donating the flour and teaching life skills to students. School members also wish to thank all of the students that participated and National Honor Society leaders for coordinating this activity.

First-grade students at East Meadows had some cultural fun with ballet and bowling. They attended the Cinderella ballet at Brigham Young University and really enjoyed it. After the ballet they had fun being active in the bowling alley. For many students, it was their first time attending a ballet or bowling.

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.
