We are so excited to hold our annual Jog-a-Thon again at Spanish Oaks on Friday, October 4, 2019, for our school fundraiser! Students will receive an envelope with a donation form on 9-23-19. They can collect pledges for how many laps they run, or as a flat rate donation. Our goal is for each student to raise $10, which will help us meet our goal of $5,000 for our school! Parents are invited to come cheer for their children during their assigned Jog-a-Thon time. Thank you for supporting our school!

3rd Grade was lucky to have the Springville Museum of Art come and present their kid curator program for students. Mrs. Till explained and demonstrated what a curator does. Then she gave bags to groups of students. They each came up with their own curated “show.” They had to explain what the main idea of their show was.
