Everyone was encouraged to participate in healthy physical activities with family and friends, walk or ride their bikes to school often, practice safety rules, and enjoy the benefits of a healthier lifestyle that comes with that pledge.

6th Grade Olympics

On September 30, East Meadows Elementary sixth-graders have been studying the Greek culture and history as part of this year's curriculum. Students actively engaged in many fun activities to experience ancient Greece firsthand. Family and friends enjoyed learning about Homer’s Odyssey through skits performed by the students. They made their own costumes, scenery and created their own scripts to tell the story of Odysseus traveling home to Ithaca. Students then participated in Greek Olympics later that day.

The Signs and Colors of Fall!

Mrs. Lymans Afternoon Kindergarten Class

The Kindergarten students at East Meadows Elementary started off their study of the seasons by walking around the school and surrounding neighborhood observing and collecting signs of Autumn.  They found an assortment of leaves in different colors, small branches and flowers, various seeds, and pine cones.  They each made a bag to collect their items in.

East Meadows Student Council

Students have chosen their East Meadows Student Council for 2011-2012. The student council represents and serves the school in a variety of capacities. They do morning announcements, learn about service-project opportunities, and come up with ideas to help improve the school. Those chosen to be on the student council got a little bit of campaign experience as they tried for various positions. They shared their talents and let us know how they could best serve the school.

East Meadows 5th graders took the opportunity to visit Olympic Park near Park City. Olympic Park served as the 2002 Olympic venue for ski jumping, Nordic Combined, Bobsled, Skeleton and the Luge. Besides seeing how snow is great for fun winter activities, the students learned that snow is vital to Utah’s economy. In fact, it is even called 'white gold.' This year students got to see ski jumpers jump into the pool. They thought that was pretty awesome.

HOORAY! 4-H After School at East Meadows Elementary

Fall 4-H After School Theatre and Cloverbuds Clubs

The 2011 Fall 4-H afterschool program at East Meadows Elementary kicked off on September 6. The program is available to first through sixth grade students of the school. The primary goal of 4-H is to assist youth in developing life skills that help them live productive and satisfying lives.  4-H afterschool clubs allow students to explore many different talents and skills, emphasizing ”learning by doing.” Each week during this time students will learn and recite the 4-H pledge and motto, recite the Pledge of Allegiance, eat a healthy snack and attend a one hour club.  They will also participate in a service project. The fall clubs are: Flag Football, Jump Rope, Works of Art, Outdoor Games, Recharge, GPS, Paper Crafts, Crafts, Young Artists, Cloverbuds and Theatre. The fall clubs will run for ten weeks and will end on November 22.  This day will be the Parent Share Day where the students will get to show case what they have learned in their individual club.  This will be held right after school and we would like to invite and encourage parents and family members to come share this day with their child. Thank you Utah County 4-H and those who have donated to help with this program and also East Meadows Elementary.
