We had a great assembly where we were taught about "The Golden Rule."

We had an magician who preformed some awesome magic tricks as well as taught the students to be kind and treat others as they would like to be treated.

This was such a positive message that was presented.

We have such great students and staff at East Meadows!

Letter Love

Attributions: By: Macady Tanner

After the recent tragedy of the Florida school shooting, a neighboring school in Florida asked if people around the globe would write hand-written letters to the students at Stoneman Douglas High School to remind them they are loved. Mrs. Parker’s 7th-grade class decided to do just that. 

As the class wrote letters to unknown students in Florida, their faces lit up at the idea of someone who had gone through this tragic event opening a letter just to remind them that they are loved. With hard things going through our world like this, we would like to invite anyone who wants to put a little letter love in the world to write a letter for these kids. Sometimes you just need to be reminded you matter and are cared about even if it comes from across the globe. Let us fill the air with letter love.

Hello, Brockbank Families!

Thank you to all those who have taken the school survey!  We appreciate your feedback.  If you have not taken it, please do so.  The Stake Holder’s survey can be found on the Nebo Website!  If you have questions or concerns about our school, I hope you would come in and discuss those with me so that we can problem solve together.

PLEASE NOTE:  We have had our 3rd-6th grade students take the survey here at school, however, we would love for kindergarten,1st and 2nd grade students to have help from home and take the survey as well!  Thanks so much!

Keep collecting those Box Tops!  The class that brings in the most Box Tops by Feb. 23rd gets a class party!  The Box Tops have made such a difference at our school, providing the wonderful new marquee, playground equipment and much more!  Thanks for saving those and sending them our way!

Penny Wars:  STARTS TODAY!  Feb 20 – March 9
KIDS have the power to make a positive difference.  Please join the Kid Power committee at Brockbank Elementary to change the world.  Our project this year is to help the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation find a cure for Type 1 Diabetes.  This is the type that mostly affects children.  There are children in our school that deal with this disease.
Each grade will bring money to donate. All paper and silver coins in their cans will count for that grades total.  All the pennies put in that grade level can, will subtract from their total.  So put pennies in another classes can to stop them from beating your grade.  Put the silver and paper money in your class can to increase your total.  This is called a Penny War.  Our penny war will help find a cure for juvenile Diabetes.
We will start our project on February 20th and go through March 9th.  The grade level with the heaviest can on Feb 23 will get to have a dance party.  The grade level with the heaviest can on March 2 will get to run someone through their whip cream gauntlet.  The grade level that raises the most money by March 9 will get to have a flour bomb war.  This war is for good and we will have a lot of fun.  Start earning money to make a difference.

Spring Pictures:  We will be having our Spring Pictures on Thursday, Feb. 22, by Life Touch Photography!

Math Lab:  Just a reminder that we have our Math Lab opened in the mornings before school, at 8:30.  Any student is welcome to come and practice math facts, use the online REFLEX program, or get help with math assignments!

Dear Students, Parents, Staff, and Friends:

FFA WEEK

Spanish Fork FFA is celebrating along with chapters around the country, the amazing accomplishments of members, teachers, and the industry of agriculture. Our FFA members are sponsoring dress up days throughout the week. See the calendar below or our Facebook page for more details.

GIRLS WHO CODE CLUB

The Girls Who Code Club program is a free program for girls in grades 6-12 that provides engaging project-based activities.  

Club girls join a safe and supportive environment of peers & role models and learn to see themselves as computer scientists. Beyond the Club, girls can tap into an alumni network of tens of thousands of girls across the country that is using computer science to solve problems they care about.

Club girls learn the concepts of loops, variables, conditionals, and functions that form the basis for all programming languages — whether they want to build a website, an app, or a robot. Club girls work in teams to design and build a Computer Science “CS” Impact Project that solves real world problems they care about through code.

If you are interested in learning more or joining this club, send an email to heather.mendonsa@nebo.edu. Club girls will meet during Pack Time one or two days each week.

PTA BOOK FAIR SUCCESSES

FROM OUR PTA: The PTA loves our teachers and staff!  During February’s book fair we gave out "gift cards" for each.  Thank you SFJHS for all you do for our kids!

The PTA loves our kids, too!  Because we had such amazing support at our fall book fair, we decided to give out "gift certificates" to some students!  We had a drawing and one kid from each English class received a $5 gift certificate good for a book!  As a result, 30 certificates were redeemed.  The PTA is thrilled to have more books in the hands of our students!

Also, because of the success of our FALL BOOK FAIR,  we were able to buy additional books for the English teachers’ classroom libraries. And, just over $1,000 was donated at this book fair!

With our extra scholastic dollars we earn from each book fair we hope to be able to do some fun things like this again at our next fair in the fall.

Thank you parents for the support you give the PTA and our school by purchasing books at our book fairs!

The 8th grade US History classes had the opportunity to visit the Utah state capitol building on Friday and got to see government working full throttle.

Students watched a session of Congress in which the families of Utah’s fallen soldiers were honored and  took a peek at the building’s new earthquake absorption mechanisms.  They spoke with Representative Mike McKell and got a special tour of the Supreme Court from him and our own Mayor Leifson.  They even got to have a question and answer period with Senator Diedre Henderson!

The kids learned a lot and were able to experience government! This field trip is always a favorite.

On February 8, 2018, the students in Mrs. Mendonsa’s class had a great and wonderful time watching Mrs. Mendonsa share with them parts of a pig. She brought a pig heart, lungs, esophagus, and larynx into class with her.

With a shop vacuum, she was able to blow the pig lungs up and show how the lungs of a pig and human work.

With the pig heart, she showed us how many chambers it had and where most of the organs attached to the heart in order for everything to work out. The class had a fun time and was able to learn about the inside of a pig.
