Everyone knows Nichol Lyman is an amazing Kindergarten teacher.  As these timid …..and many times scared little students enter her room at the beginning of each year, she is patient, kind and loves each one of them.  It is always her goal to make their 1st year of school a very positive experience.  She is extremely organized, has lots of energy and runs an orderly but fun classroom.  But more than that, Nichol always knows what each of her students need and makes sure they get the help, attention, and interventions they need to succeed.  As students advance through the grades….they  always come back to say “hi” to Mrs. Lyman…..in fact, she is so popular with the students, she seems to always wins the ugly Christmas sweater contest with the students votes.

Nichol is an amazing mentor and very patient with the new teachers and interns that she seems to get assigned to every year.  We love Nichol and we are so grateful and lucky to teach on the Kindergarten team with her.  Congratulations Nichol!!

The first grade teachers and students celebrated Christmas by having a Polar Express Day on December 19.  The students decorated boxes at home to look like train cars.  They brought them to school and paraded through the halls on their way to the North Pole.  When arriving at their destination they watched the movie Polar Express while sipping on Hot Cocoa and eating doughnuts.  Thank you to all the parent volunteers who made this a magical day for the students.  Merry Christmas to All!

On Thursday, December 20, East Meadows 5th graders became D.A.R.E. (Drug Abuse Resistance Education) graduates. Officer Zac Robinson welcomed family and friends as he commended the 5th graders for completing their 10-week educational training. In order to receive their graduation certificates, students participated in class discussions and activities, learned songs, and wrote thoughtful essays on why it is important to stay away from drugs and other harmful substances. The vision of D.A.R.E. is to create, “A world in which students everywhere are empowered to respect others and choose to lead lives free from violence, substance abuse, and other dangerous behaviors.”  The D.A.R.E. program teaches students good decision-making skills to help them lead safe and responsible lives.  Additionally, it establishes positive relationships between students and law enforcement, teachers, parents, and other community leaders. Every youngster should have the opportunity to grow-up healthy, safe, secure, and equipped with the skills needed to succeed in life."  Outstanding D.A.R.E. essay winners are: Brennen Carter, Billy Hall, Alivia Winkel, Emily Haroldsen, Jessi Mangum, Maisy Reid, Naiya Gardner, Cadence Hew-len, Parker Simpson, Kayla Clark Lauren Rasmussen, and Alissa Simmons. Two students from each class were selected as the Outstanding D.A.R.E. student.   From Mrs. Charla Andersen's class, Tracee Jones and Jakob White. Mrs. Annalyse Anderson’s class, Evan Glazier and Malorie Porter.  Mrs. Hogle's class, Alyssa Beardall and Nathan Smith.  Mrs. Morrow's class, Ryen Hansbrow and Andrew Holley. Congratulations to all the 5th grade students on graduating from this program.  We also thank Officer Zac Robinson and the 5th grade teachers for their time in this worthwhile program.
