The second grade students at East Meadows Elementary loaded the buses on Thursday, October 4 and headed to the North County Equestrian Park in Lehi and Harward Farms. They participated in various activities while there. They watched a sheep shearing demonstration by County Extension Agent Jim Jensen. They learned about the important role agriculture has in their daily lives. Local farmers, ranchers and fruit growers taught them that many things they use every day come from products like animals, orchards and gardens. They were taught about good nutrition and hand washing. They made necklaces out of wheat seeds. On the way home they stopped by Harward Farms and picked pumpkins which they will take home and decorate to be brought back to display on Monday, October 15.
The week of Oct 1-5 was Ribbon Week at East Meadows Elementary. Each day the students received a yarn bracelet representing the color and theme for that day. At the end of the week a prize was awarded to the class you had the most bracelets left. Monday kicked off Red Ribbon Day with everyone wearing red and pledging to be drug free. Each class was given a red poster that read “The Best ME is Drug Free.” Every student in the school signed the poster and displayed them in the hallways. Tuesday was “Turn off the TV and Talk” day. The halls and classrooms were filled with bright, cheery students as they wore yellow this day. They were asked to turn off the TV and turn on life. They were encouraged to participate in a fun family activity. Wednesday was “Green Means Go Safely.” It was also National Walk to School Day. The students practiced safe walking routes and when they arrived at school they were greeted by the Spanish Fork High School Football Team and Cheerleaders passing out a prize. Green was the color worn for safety on this day. “I’ve Got the Power,” was the theme on Thursday. Students wore white to school and were asked to talk with their families about internet safety and setting family guidelines for media use. Lastly, “Stand UP & Speak Out” was our Friday theme. This day students wore purple. They were taught to use courage, confidence, and character as they stand up for values and speak out against bullies. There will be a Snap, Walk ‘n Roll Assembly on November 29. SNAP, Walk 'n Roll is an assembly about walking and biking safely to school, produced by the Utah Department of Transportation Student Neighborhood Access Program (SNAP) ™. We look forward to their presentation. Thank you to all the students, faculty and staff, parents and PTA for a fun filled week!
The Student Council accepted a check from Macey’s in the amount of $209.00. This money was donated through the Macey’s School Cents program. All those receipts that families turn in really do pay off. The more receipts our school collects the larger the donation. Macey’s donates over $20,000 to local schools. There is a collection box located inside the school by the front office. Thank You Macey's!!

Once again the 6th grade students at East Meadows Elementary performed skits as part of the play “The Odyssey.” A poem written by Homer in approximately 700 B.C. The sixth-graders have been learning about Greek culture and history. Each class performed one of the scenes from the play. The Odyssey tells of Odysseus’ travels back to his kingdom Ithaca after the Trojan War. It took him ten years to find his way back and he experienced many adventures along the way. The students made their own props, scenery and costumes. Good job sixth-grade students. They also were able to participate in many Greek Olympic type activities that afternoon.
Our 4th Grade students had the opportunity to explore Camp Floyd on their field trip on September 14, 2012. They were able to participate in interactive, hands-on experiences as they engaged in the activities of a soldier at Camp Floyd in 1861. Students heard a first-hand account of life in Johnston's Army by a staff member in period military uniform, viewed musket fire, and experienced the life of a soldier by marching, drilling, making candles and adobe bricks; they raced for the Pony Express, experienced class in a 19th century schoolhouse and viewed the Stagecoach Inn and Camp Floyd Commissary. Thanks to the teachers and parent volunteers for helping with this fun learning experience.
ARGH! First grade pirates found themselves marooned on the East Meadows Isle on September 13,2012. These little buccaneers found themselves learning about literacy and math through fun pirate activities. By the end of the day they learned, “There is more treasure in books than in all the pirate’s loot on Treasure Island.” Thank ye first-grade teachers for making learning fun and exciting for our students.
