First graders got an active lesson on electricity. Strawberry Electric (SESD) came to East Meadows with their ‘cantaloupe man’ to demonstrate effects of electricity. Students loved blowing things up, and seeing what would happen to ‘cantaloupe man’ throughout the demonstration. They learned that workers must wear protective gear when working with electricity. The students tried on protective gloves and learned it wasn’t so easy to pick up coins while wearing them. The first graders left the demonstration with a better understanding of the benefits and dangers of electricity.
Easter is around the corner and East Meadows students are getting ready. The kindergarten classes made Easter bags and went on an Easter egg hunt. Students were thrilled with their findings.
That’s exactly how it was at the 4-H Afterschool Parent Share on Monday, April 4, 2011.
Students at East Meadows Elementary have been participating in East Meadows Idol. Some students chose to go solo and others teamed up to showcase their various talents. Classmates have enjoyed watching their peers perform a number of things such as singing, playing the guitar, or piano and reading a poem.
Maple Mountain High School's PTSA Service Club visited East Meadows 2nd-graders today March 10. The PTSA club provides service once a month. This month we were privileged to have them at our school. They visited the 2nd grade classes. They read with the students and performed other activities with them. After they helped in the classroom, they got to go outside to recess wih them. They played on the playground equipment, played football, red rover-red rover and other various activities. Thank you Laura Henry and the other PTSA volunteers for this wonderful service.
Students from Maple Mountain High School's Honor Society visited East Meadow's Elementary on March 2 to read to the 1st-3rd grade classes. They shared several of Dr. Suess' favorite books with our students. It was a fun event for our kids. Thank You Maple Mountain Honor Society!
