Family and friends filtered in and out of East Meadows Elementary as they watched the end-of-year programs. Each grade focused on themes they have learned about throughout the year. Pre-school children got to say “goodbye” animal style. The first and second grades shared what they’ve learned about friendship, community, and strengthening relationships. The third-grade classes ended their program with a parent showcase where students shared their writing, poetry and acting abilities. Visitors listened to names of places they’ve probably never heard of while fourth graders sang about Utah. And fifth graders talked and sang about their love for America.
