Put aside paper and pen and learn math through games. On Friday, April 1, East Meadows sixth graders hosted a Probability Fair so students could do just that. The sixth graders have been creating and coming up with games that younger students can play. All of the games will produce results that can be graphed so students can then see how probability works. Looking around the gym one can see that probability plays a role in many common activities. Students had fun with cards, gumball machines, tossing games and spinners. What a fun way to learn math.

Students at East Meadows Elementary have been participating in East Meadows Idol. Some students chose to go solo and others teamed up to showcase their various talents. Classmates have enjoyed watching their peers perform a number of things such as singing, playing the guitar, or piano and reading a poem.
Camile Biggs and Natalie Mecham were awarded a State Farm Good Neighbors for Good Schools Grant in the amount of $200. Students attended an assembly to see their teachers receive the award and enjoy a reader’s theater featuring the book, Wolf! Students were congratulated for their efforts in reading and encouraged to become good readers like the wolf. Mrs. Mecham explained that some time ago students had been given paper pizzas with no toppings; as they read, they got to add topping to their pizza. To celebrate the grant and to congratulate students for their reading, East Meadows third graders will enjoy a pizza party.
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.

Dads gathered up their kids and took them to the annual Dads and Donuts activity at East Meadows Elementary. Those that attended found a comfortable spot to read books and visit with neighbors. Everyone got to grab donuts on the way out. The event was well attended and is a great tradition that many look forward to each year.
On March 2, East Meadows third-grade students and family members watched the annual spelling bee. Eleven students participated in the event.

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.

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.
