Five affirmative and five negative teams (20 students) competed in the Utah Debate 2010 Elementary Division II on Friday April 23 2010. Students from Brockbank, Hobble Creek, and Mapleton Elementary debated "Resolved: that the state of Utah should develop a policy to expand energy exports within in its borders."
East Meadows delighted the Nebo School Board of Education with their profusion of learning strategies. The students and teachers demonstrated learning through document cameras, Star boards, and Smartboards. It was amusing to watch the students and school board test their knowledge on science questions using clickers, which provide immediate feedback to both teacher and students.
The audience and school board then had the pleasure of listening to a drama selection and recorder music by the fourth-grade students.

There is no one more deserving of this award than Bridget Black! She has two mottos that she lives by. One is, "It's a beautiful thing," and the other is, "It's all good." Anyone will hear these phrases often when visiting with her. She impresses everyone because she is always positive and
happy. Bridget goes the extra mile every day in her work. If you have had her clean your room or do anything for you, she does it willingly and thoroughly. She takes great pride in what she does, and it shows by how Foothills Elementary looks. Congratulations, Bridget! We all love you!!!

On Thursday, April 1, 2010, both faculty and students at Foothills Elementary carefully planned and carried out an April Fool's joke on Principal, Mr. Schollenberger. It was decided that anyone who wanted to participate would come to school dressed like Mr. Schollenberger-white shirt, tie, and dress pants. Fake Mr. Schollenberger ID badges were also given to faculty members--thanks to his lovely secretaries. Participation from both faculty and students was incredible and created lots of laughter and second glances. Thank you, Mr.
