The 5th grade students have been working very hard since early in October to earn lucky bucks.  They earned these as good deeds were performed, good behavior was displayed and good study habits were developed.  Today, December 19 the students got to spend their play money on a variety of merchandise.  They purchased such things as elf hats, reindeer antlers, christmas socks, coloring books, scarves, gloves, teddy bears, giant pens, pencils, folders, cards, lotions, lip gloss, christmas decorations, soda pop and a variety of candy and many other fun items.  This was the first sale of two for the year.  The next one will be in the Spring.

Teacher Feature: Tricia Peterson

Trisha Peterson

Meet Tricia Peterson. Many of you may be familiar with her because she was the Art Specialist at East meadows Elementary for 5 years. She now teaches fourth grade. During her time spent as the Art Specialist, Mrs. Peterson discovered that there were many ways to learn. She wanted to share those experiences with students and decided to become a teacher. She loves having fun with her students and has a great sense of humor. One day she came to school with her hair curly and a student said to her, “I didn’t know it was crazy hair day today.” She hasn’t worn her hair like that since but got a good laugh out of that. Her favorite movie is Finding Nemo. She says that perhaps she feels like Dori sometimes. Mrs. Peterson’s hope for her students is that they progress far more than they ever thought they could because they believe in themselves.

It was all about atoms, molecules, chemical changes and things that go pop at East Meadows today. Clark Planetarium sponsored an assembly for students to observe and participate in science experiments. Students were encouraged to not only make observations but to also learn to communicate their observations by using their five senses. Sixth-grade students continued with their own small assembly and learned about the planets. They lined up and spaced themselves appropriately in order to gain a perspective of the distance between the planets in our solar system. East Meadows thanks Clark Planetarium for providing an interactive learning experience for the students.

Today East Meadows Elementary kicked off the Warm the Soles program. This program is sponsored by Nebo Credit Union. Donations from the credit union and local schools help provide shoes for those that may have difficulty purchasing them. Last year East Meadows collected a generous $900. Members of the student council will come by the classrooms each morning to collect funds for the program until Friday, December 16. East Meadows would love to meet or exceed last year’s generous donation and wishes to thank ahead of time those who choose to contribute.
