Fifth graders at East Meadows celebrated Colonial Day today. Students learned about what it would have been like to live in colonial days through active participation in a variety of activities. They wrote with feathers, made a horn book, a quilt block and a colonial sign. They dipped candle wicks, cleaned cotton and played a game called “ball and stick.”

This year’s Mustang Week was centered around our ‘Super Hero School’ theme. The week started off on Tuesday as students participated in an art project. Wednesday was the Corbin White Game Show Assembly, ‘Learning is a Super Power! Challenge’. This academic assembly stresses the importance of teamwork, self-esteem, and knowledge in a fun and creative way. Students are required to think during this assembly. They were asked questions from English, Math, Social Studies and Science. Some of our teachers were even put to the test. Thursday the halls were filled with every ‘Super Hero’ imaginable as the students dressed in their favorite Super Hero attire. Friday we finished off the week with a Field Day and a treat from the PTA.
I use to be little, but not anymore,
today I'll get up and walk out the door.
I'm going to kindergarten- it's the first time for me.
It's great to big, but I'm scared as can be.
It's great to be big! I'm so glad that I'm me.
East Meadows would like to welcome all our new Kindergarten students to school.
Welcome back East Meadows Elementary students and faculty! This year students will focus on being 'Super Hero Learners'. Principal Liddiard held an assembly on the first day of school and talked about different ways we can be Super Hero Learner's. We will focus on such things as friendship, respect, integrity, self-control, study and hard work, responsibility, team work and on being fit and strong and having good health habits. Teachers and staff will recognize and reward students for 'Super Hero' behavior. So what is your Super Hero behavior going to be?
Students have been celebrating another great year of school. They’ve done lots of activites—cookie day, crayon day, and cruise day are just some of the many events. On May 24, after the sixth-grade class went bowling, they had a water day. Students and teachers didn’t hesitate to get each other wet and have lots of fun doing it.
Family and friends have been filtering in and out of East Meadows Elementary this month to watch the year-end programs. Pre-school children left us with farewells of “Toodles Poodles,” “Take Care Brown Bear,” and “Till Then Penguin.” Kindergarten students sang songs about their “Journey through Kindergarten.” First graders focused on “Oceans of Fun.” Third-grade students shared their “Journey through Learning.” Visitors that came to the fourth-grade program will learn a lot about Utah through songs. The fifth-grade students have learned a lot about the United States of America and will share songs about their love of country. Sixth-grade students will put on their caps and gowns and say goodbye to their elementary years on May 25. East Meadows has had another wonderful year thanks to your students and a great staff!
