Sub-Zero Ice cream and yogurt combine science and ice cream to create a wonderful scientific experiment that tastes good. They came to East Meadows Elementary to present an assembly for us in conjunction with the Science Fair. Using liquid nitrogen at -321 Fahrenheit they can make a custom made ice cream just for you in seconds. They discussed the elemental properties of nitrogen, gas laws and the Leidenfrost Effect and the application of science to food. The students had a great time learning and watching as they were sprayed with non-toxic nitrogen smoke.
The East Meadows Science Fair was on February 6, 2013. The fifth and sixth grade students have been working really hard the last couple of weeks preparing their project to be judged and displayed.
Today the 28th day of January, 2013 the students at East Meadows celebrated 100 days of school. They were found wearing an assortment of items on shirts, counting a variety of items, reading for 100 minutes and coloring and cutting out 100 goggles. They even had baggies of candy with 100 pieces for each child in the class. It was a fun day for all. It's hard to believe we are more than half way done with another year of school.
Sixth-grade students attended Brigham Young University’s Sports Hero Day, on January 17, 2013. There they met with BYU athlete’s and volunteers who serve as positive role models to children. They talked to them about not giving up on their dreams. One athlete talked about everyday heroes, such as the people that keep our streets and buildings clean. He said it doesn’t matter what job you have as long as it gets done. Everyone of us is a hero.

All aboard! The 1st graders boarded The Polar Express today and paraded through the halls to the North Pole. They had decorated a box to look like a Christmas train car at home. They were served donuts and hot chocolate and watched the movie The Polar Express. Thanks to the parent volunteers who decorated, brought donuts and chocolate milk and helped serve.
If you came to East Meadows on Tuesday, the 18th of December you probably wondered about the teacher’s sense of style. Many of the teachers and staff wore very festive holiday sweaters to school that day. The wearing of ugly sweaters has become a fun tradition at various work places, parties, school activities, etc. over the past few years. So don’t ever throw away those coveted pieces of clothing. So who won the ugly sweater contest?
