First grade students at East Meadows created their very own Polar Express train cars and traveled through the school on their way to the North Pole. Each boxcar was personally created and reflected the personality of the child. Students had to turn in their special Polar Express Ticket, given only to good girls and boys. This is such a fun annual event for students and staff.
East Meadows 5th graders participated in a ten week NOVA program with Officer Leifson from the Spanish Fork police force.
The mission of the N.O.V.A. Principles Foundation is: “Nurturing youth to seek out positive Opportunities, internalize good Values, and to accept Accountability for their choices in life.”
N.O.V.A. was designed to provide a resource to children, families, and communities to fight against harmful influences, while providing guidance toward positive opportunities and values.
Through our Penny Wars Charitable Giving Fundraiser, students and staff at East Meadows were able to raise and donate $3,296.57 to the Nebo Credit Union Warm the Soles program. Each year, Warm the Soles provides hundreds of pairs of shoes for students in need across the district. The East Meadows Student Council presented a check for the funds raised at our Mustang Pride Assembly on December 2nd.
We are so grateful for the charitable giving from our East Meadows community!
A team from the BYU Performing Arts department put on a wonderful play for the school highlighting the book GO DOG, GO! by Dr. Seuss. Their creative interpretation of the play kept all of the students engaged and entertained. After the performance, teams of actors visited our 3rd grade classes to teach an additional workshop.
