On Tuesday April 1, East Meadows was visited by a rodeo clown, some city officials and the 2013 Fiest Days Rodeo Royalty. They talked to the kids about the sport of rodeo. The rodeo clown entertained them with some of his clown acts. He also talked to the kids about the importance of getting an education. Spanish Fork is proud to welcome the 2014 Wrangler Champions Challenge Rodeo to our Fairgrounds Arena on May 31. This is the first full season for the Champions Challenge and this should be an exciting event.
Max and Mia Colton, Kyra Feland, Sam Jex and Hollister Hogle were all awarded 1st place in the Central Utah Science and Engineering Fair at BYU . Max and Mia and Kyra have been nominated for the Broadcom MASTERS. Overall, awesome representation from five East Meadows kids.
The third grade students became little entrepreneurs today for their 3rd Grade Market. They had the opportunity to learn a little about commerce. They have been earning and saving “play” money for good classroom behavior. All the students offered some sort of goods or service. Some of the items for sale were: food, small trinkets and toys and an assortment of games to play, some even offered fingernail painting. They each got to take the money they have earned and spend it anyway they want. It was a fun and educational experience.
On Friday, March 14, 2014 the first grade students and teachers dressed up as pirates for the day! It was fun to see them walking the halls of the school.
The Kindergarten classes celebrated Dr. Seuss’ birthday the week of March 3-7, 2014. They participated in many fun activities. They dressed as their favorite character, made and wore Cat in the Hat hat’s, had a crazy sock day, and read many of Dr. Seuss’ classic books. Theodor Geisel or better known as, Dr. Seuss the beloved children’s book author, was born March 4, 1904.

The Spanish Fork Jr. High School Band visited the sixth-graders at East Meadows on March 13, 2014. Mr. Wendell, the Band teacher, gave them a quick overview of the program. The Jr. High students then played a piece they have been practicing. Some of the students were allowed to touch and play the instruments if they were interested. The SFJH Orchestra also visited the previous day. It is time for the sixth-graders to decide if they want to play in the Band or Orchestra next year.
To help celebrate Dr. Seuss’ Birthday, East Meadows Elementary celebrates by hosting a Dad’s and Doughnuts Activity. As part of the event the PTA donated a new book for each student and supplied over 900 doughnuts. Thank you to all of our dad’s, mom’s, grandparents, teachers and faculty and anyone else who participated or otherwise supported this fun night. Remember to keep reading!
The Young Theater Company from Brigham Young University performed Shakespeare’s play “Cymbeline,” for an assembly today. This play was lightheartedly adapted and directed by Teresa Dayley Love. The students were thrilled as some of our very own children were chosen to be actors and perform on stage. The 2nd and 6th grades enjoyed a workshop put on by the college students.
The students enjoyed a fun-filled Valentine's Day as they exchanged Valentine's and had class parties. East Meadows would like to thank all the parent volunteers that helped in any way with the Valentine Parties.
