November 2022

Here's what's happening at East Meadows....

November is one of my favorite months because I get to reflect on all the things I am grateful for. This year I am THANKFUL for the East Meadows staff, students, PTA and school community!

It will be hard to top the month of October with so many fun events like the PTA Spook Alley and our Halloween Parade. We loved seeing all the families come out to support our school.

We will be bringing in the holiday season with several engaging events for students in November including our Veteran's Day Assembly, Penny Wars for Charity and our first ever Turkey Trot and Gobble Off Contest. We also have our Cougar Built assembly complete with Cosmo and the BYU Dunk Team as well as the BYU Performing Arts Center coming to perform the play Go Dog, Go!

Should be a fun-filled month of THANKFULNESS!

Penny Wars for Warm The Soles!

Save up your spare change and share it for a great cause!

This year our school-wide charitable giving campaign will be a Penny War to help raise money for WARM THE SOLES which is a wonderful program sponsored by Nebo Credit Union to provide new shoes for children. All proceeds will be donated to Nebo Credit Union for this cause.

Students use silver coins or dollar bills to build up their own grade level team bank and then "attack" other teams with pennies which count as negative points. We will compete to see which grade level teams can earn the most for charity.

The games begin on Monday, November 14th!

We are excited to announce our first annual Turkey Trot and Gobble Off Contest to be held on Monday, November 21st and Tuesday, November 22nd.

During lunch recess, students can run or walk around a designated course and earn tickets toward a drawing for many fun prizes.

Students are also invited to enter our Gobble-Off Contest. Each class will hold a competition and nominate a candidate for our school-wide Gobble Off to be held at the end of the day Tuesday, November 22nd.
