This month we will be celebrating LOVE TO READ MONTH at East Meadows.  Check out the weekly themes and be sure to check your email (and your child's backpack) for more information, details and the punch cards that will be coming home.  

Students are challenged to read EVERY DAY and to use their punch card to track their daily reading.  Punch cards are due on February 28th and will be your child's ticket to our Reading Celebration to be held on Friday, March 1st! 

Things parents need to know:

Week 1 - 

Repertory Dance Theater Assembly

Submitted by teresa.jordan on

On Tuesday, January 16th we were delighted to have an assembly put on by the Repertory Dance Theater Company.  Students learned about the elements of dance and choreography as well as the importance of exercise and eating right to build strong, healthy bodies.  We appreciate the Beverly Taylor Sorenson Arts Initiative that brings these wonderful art-based learning experiences to our school.  

Workshop on Childhood Anxiety

Submitted by teresa.jordan on

Attention Nebo Parents!  Join our next Mental Health Series on Your Child's Anxiety.  Learn simple strategies that will help you better respond to your child's anxiety.  When applied, these skills will help strengthen bonds, allowing your child to identify and work through anxiety more effectively.  

Food Drive Going On Now!

Submitted by teresa.jordan on

For the next two weeks we will be gathering food at East Meadows to be donated to Tabitha's Way in honor of Nate Carr and his family.  We are joining with Maple Ridge Elementary to provide a "Second Helping" of food that will benefit families during the holiday season.    

Nate passed away in a construction accident in October 2020 and to honor his memory some teachers at Maple Ridge (the school his children attended then) have organized this fun food drive.  #inhonorofnatedosomethinggreat
