Spanish Oaks Achieves the Energy Star Recognition Award

Our very own Spanish Oaks Elementary was one of the 39 buildings in Nebo School District to celebrate achieving the Energy Star Recognition Award!  This is the most of any school district in the state of Utah, with the recognition being presented to the most energy efficient buildings in the country.  To earn the ENERGY STAR Certification, buildings must rate in the top 25 percent nationwide for energy efficiency.  Nebo averaged in the top 10 percent.  “We are extremely pleased to receive this recognition from ENERGY STAR,” said Nebo School District Superintendent Mr. Rick Nielsen. “Our energy conservation efforts are saving taxpayer dollars, while also helping protect our local environment.”  Well done, students and faculty!!

Congratulations to Mrs. Carter, our June PEAK Award Winner!!

Congratulations to our very own Mrs. Carter for being awarded the Nebo School District's PEAK Award (Positive Energy And Kindness)!!  A grateful Spanish Oaks nominating parent writes,  "This ‘guardian angel’ cares for [my son] while he is at school ... My son truly loves Mrs. Carter and knows that no matter what is going on, he will be helped ... I could never thank Mrs. Carter enough for all she does.  I feel safe taking my son to school.  The only word that can describe her is ‘Angel’!”
