The Kindergarten students at East Meadows Elementary started off their study of the seasons by walking around the school and surrounding neighborhood observing and collecting signs of Autumn. They found an assortment of leaves in different colors, small branches and flowers, various seeds, and pine cones. They each made a bag to collect their items in.

Students have chosen their East Meadows Student Council for 2011-2012. The student council represents and serves the school in a variety of capacities. They do morning announcements, learn about service-project opportunities, and come up with ideas to help improve the school. Those chosen to be on the student council got a little bit of campaign experience as they tried for various positions. They shared their talents and let us know how they could best serve the school. Congratulations to this year’s school council!
East Meadows 5th graders took the opportunity to visit Olympic Park near Park City. Olympic Park served as the 2002 Olympic venue for ski jumping, Nordic Combined, Bobsled, Skeleton and the Luge. Besides seeing how snow is great for fun winter activities, the students learned that snow is vital to Utah’s economy. In fact, it is even called 'white gold.' This year students got to see ski jumpers jump into the pool. They thought that was pretty awesome.
Young pirates roamed the halls of East Meadows Elementary today. They listened to pirate stories and participated in fun, learning activities.

The 4th grade students at East Meadows once again started off the year making dinosaur dioramas. This is part of their social studies unit. They learn about different species of dinosaurs and their environments and diets. They made the dioramas in shoe boxes. Inside the box they created a scene that would depict what it looked like when dinosaurs roamed the earth. They used colored paper and play dough to make trees, mountains, water, and dinosaurs and anything else they could imagine to portray the scene.
