East Meadows held their annual Science Fair, Wednesday, January 28, 2015. The 5th and 6th grade students have been learning about science and were able to pick a science project and display it for the fair. Many hours go in to preparing a Science Fair project. It is a good way for the students to implement the Scientific Method. The students choose a topic and form a hypothesis. Then they get to conduct the experiment and find out if their hypothesis was correct or not. They prepare an oral presentation and build a display board.
East Meadows PTA would like to THANK everyone who contributed to our Holiday Box Top Drive. We brought in $741 this drive thanks to the combined effort of all our students. With the back to school drive bringing in over $800 we have now collected over $1500 for our school by clipping and saving all those Box Tops. Remember 100% of the proceeds go directly to our school.
Sixth-grade students attended Brigham Young University’s Sports Hero Day, on January 22, 2015. There they met with BYU athlete’s and volunteers who serve as positive role models to children. They talked about reaching goals, heroism, sportsmanship, etc. Students not only watched demonstrations but actively participated in various sports along with students from other schools in the local area. They played football and volleyball with some of the college athletes. They played Sharks and Minnows with the Baseball and Softball Players. The met some of the Cheerlearders and Cosmo.
One of the highlights of the week for our sixth graders is when they get to go down to Kindergarten and be with their Kindergarten Buddies This is Mrs. Tomadakis' class helping in Mrs. D'Haenen's Kindergarten class. The sixth graders get to help with various projects while in the classroom. Sometimes they do art, or writing or read a book with them. The sixth graders enjoy helping the Kindergarten students learn and excel. It is a fun way for the sixth graders to interact with younger students in a positive and uplifitng enviroment.
