On Tuesday, April 27, the East Meadows 3rd graders explored Salem Pond, a local wetland. Parents and teachers guided them through various activities. Students learned how many habitats are within a wetland and observed the plants and animals living in the marsh. They looked for signs of pollution, talked about ways to help protect the environment and gathered up trash found in the area. Many students enjoyed collecting water samples in specimen cups and observing living organisms through a microscope lens. Tage from Ms.
On Wednesday evening, March 10, dads gathered up their kids and took them to the annual Dads and Donuts event at East Meadows Elementary. Those that attended enjoyed eating donuts while reading books with their students and visiting with neighbors. It’s a great tradition that many look forward to each year.
The Crystal Apple award this year goes to the brains of our operation. Julie Hammari leads our team through her talents, knowledge, abilities and height. She has been a great leader and teacher for both faculty and students here at East Meadows Elementary. She has always been willing to change a grade level because of her nature to be flexible and ability to work in any situation. This is most apparent in her current grade level team. Julie began teaching at Canyon Elementary as an intern in the 5th grade. She then moved to 3rd grade the next year and back to 5th her third year at Canyon.
