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.
The 4th graders gathered together in the little theater for a presentation on Mountain Men. The students listened intently as Mrs. Mitchell shared information about the mountain man and Utah history. Fourth Grade students have been learning about Utah History this year. Mrs. Mitchell was all decked out in her mountain man attire. She showed and talked about several items she has collected over the years. Thank you Mrs. Mitchell!
Students enjoyed exchanging Valentine's cards and treats with each other on February 14. Each student was asked to decorate a Valentine box. The boxes were decorated according to the curriculum theme of the grade level as follows: Kindergarten – Nursery Rhymes, First Grade- “I Love Reading,” Second Grade - “Love Bugs” - Insects, Third Grade - “All About Me,” Fourth Grade - “I Love Utah,” Fifth Grade - “I Love America” – States, Sixth Grade- “I Love Europe,” or they could use a general Valentine theme! There were many creative boxes and ideas. After they exchanged valentines the PTA came in and provided class parties. We want to thank the many volunteers who gave of their time and talents to make this a successful activity.

East Meadows 5th and 6th- grade students have been working hard on various hypotheses, testing and data. Family members and younger students were able to see the results of their work as they walked through their classrooms and viewed their various displays. East Meadows congratulates all participants on their efforts.
It’s all about science at East Meadows. Students attended an assembly where Brigham Young University physics students talked about science and performed various experiments. Among other topics, students learned about kinetic energy and that energy is always conserved. They also learned that even though the lights in our homes look constant, they are actually flickering at a rate of 60 x second. Students especially liked watching the floating pop bottle.
