Janae Sled

Spanish Oaks is elated to have Mrs. Sled as a new 4th grade teacher. Her favorite part of teaching is her students. She was born in Arizona, then moved to Colorado at age 7, and is currently living in Provo. When she was a kid she wanted to be a teacher, and her dream job came true! She was a student teacher in Santaquin and then helped teach preschool in Colorado for 3 years. Her favorite treat to eat is chocolate and her favorite restaurant is Art City Trolley which is located in Springville. Spanish Oaks is excited for their outstanding future with this wonderful teacher!    By Kenzie Baird, Chloe Davis


Colonial Day in Fifth Grade

Submitted by sherri.peterson on Mon, 11/23/2020 - 09:19

The fifth grade students learned all about how school would have been if they attended in Colonial times.  They dressed up, had their names changed, used no technology, wrote with ink and quill, used hammers and nails, and even had an old fashioned chalkboard.  Times have certainly changed.  A big thanks to the fifth grade teachers for making this a memorable learning experience!

 Updates are made to the Nebo Covid Information Page regularly. 

Please check HERE for all information including the Nebo Covid Dashboard.

Parent Letter 11/13

"The bulk of confirmed COVID-19 cases in our schools and communities continue to come from social and family interactions outside of school. Please follow safety guidelines outside of the school setting: limit gatherings to household-only, practice physical distancing, and wear a mask when physical distancing is not possible.

• Please stay home when sick or when waiting for COVID-19 test results. We have a surprising number of students who have been quarantined because an ill student or one who is awaiting results has come to school"

Thank you for doing your part to keep our schools open. If you have questions that can't be answered using the Nebo page please give the school office a call.

National School Psychology Week 2020

By Lana Hiskey

Nebo celebrates all our school psychologists, and all they do for Nebo students.

During the week of November 9-13, 2020, schools throughout the United States will celebrate National School Psychology Week to highlight the important work school psychologists and other educators do to help all students thrive.

This year’s theme is “The Power of Possibility.” The word “possibility” implies hope, growth, resilience, and renewal. The possibility suggests that even something as small as a seed can grow into something magnificent. The word “power” implies that things can and will happen. When we focus on what is possible, we have hope that students will grow, thrive, and bloom.

Thank you Nebo psychologists for all you do for our students.
