East Meadows sixth graders joined the Lobos at Spanish Fork Junior High (SFJH) on Friday, March 02. The students were welcomed by the SFJH Student Council, Assistant Principal Mark Bake and Assistant David Huff. The students also met Counselors Cheryl Brown, Todd Jackson and Dylan Dewey. They enjoyed listening to the band, orchestra, choir and touring the school. Among other things, the new seventh-grade students can look forward to getting lockers, having lots of teachers, choosing elective classes and especially pack time.
A cold winter evening is a perfect time for dads to gather their kids, reads a book and enjoy a doughnut. East Meadows Elementary hosted their annual Dads and Doughnuts event on March 1. As always, it was a huge success and well attended. The staff at East Meadows is grateful for teachers and PTA members that take time out of their evenings to help out with this wonderful tradition.
