The second grade students at East Meadows Elementary loaded the buses on Thursday, October 4 and headed to the North County Equestrian Park in Lehi and Harward Farms.  They participated in various activities while there.  They watched a sheep shearing demonstration by County Extension Agent Jim Jensen.  They learned about the important role agriculture has in their daily lives.  Local farmers, ranchers and fruit growers taught them that many things they use every day come from products like animals, orchards and gardens.  They were taught about good nutrition and hand washing.

The Student Council accepted a check from Macey’s in the amount of $209.00.  This money was donated through the Macey’s School Cents program.  All those receipts that families turn in really do pay off.  The more receipts our school collects the larger the donation.  Macey’s donates over $20,000 to local schools.   There is a collection box located inside the school by the front office.  Thank You Macey's!!

Submitted by trisha.olsen on Tue, 09/18/2012 - 13:51

ARGH! First grade pirates found themselves marooned on the East Meadows Isle on September 13,2012. These little buccaneers found themselves learning about literacy and math through fun pirate activities.  By the end of the day they learned, “There is more treasure in books than in all the pirate’s loot on Treasure Island.”  Thank ye first-grade teachers for making learning fun and exciting for our students.
