New Dictionaries from Nebo Credit Union


Several days ago each third grader was given a dictionary by Nebo Credit Union.  Students spent time finding words in their dictionaries, finding information about different states, discovering who the 21st president was, and learning about the sign language alphabet. These dictionaries stay with the students at the school all year and then they are able to take them home.  Thank you Nebo Credit Union!

Miss Robison's Class How To Writing

Miss Robison's class has been working on Informational Writing.  Part of teaching Informational Writing is teaching How-To writing.  Students pretended they were news reporters and got to choose which news cast they were in.  Students wrote and memorized their own scripts, and then Miss Robison filmed them.  Below is the class News Report ... Enjoy!

Veterans Day Appreciation from Spanish Oaks

"We often take for granted the very things that most deserve our gratitude." -Cynthia Ozick

We want to thank our very own Spanish Fork Veterans for the reminder they bring each year of the sacrifices made so that we can be a free nation.  Their love of country shines in their eyes as they stand and salute our American flag.  We also extend our heartfelt thanks to the families who miss them and worry about them as they are away.  We live in a great nation that will only remain great as long as we fight to maintain our freedoms.  Thank you, Veterans!
