Final Spanish Oaks Treasures


At Spanish Oaks … we MATTER!  Every person at our school has wonderful talents to share … amazing gifts to give … valued thoughts to impart.  We are important.   Each of us is a GENIUS … and the world needs our contribution.  We each have a gift that others need.   We are enough … We are the change.  Pictured are our final "treasure" student(s) of the year.  Well done, Spanish Oaks!

Upstart Kindergarten Readiness Program

As we approach the end of the school year, we are excited to make you aware of a free summer program for pre-Kindergarten students called Upstart.

Upstart is a free, technology-delivered kindergarten readiness program that will give your child a fun start in reading, math, and science (with a focus on reading) in just 15 minutes a day, 5 days a week.

We invite you to look at the attachment for details.  Feel free to forward this to any family you know with a child who will be starting kindergarten in the next year or two.

FREE eBooks for the Summer


Nebo School District is gearing up for summer break.  While summer presents an opportunity to relax and enjoy the sunshine, we want our students to continue to find ways to learn while away from the classroom.

We have an exciting reading service available through OverDrive.  The OverDrive collection provides free 24/7 access to eBooks and audiobooks.  What better way to engage your student’s mind than through reading!

This summer, the OverDrive Summer Read program will offer a collection of Juvenile and Young Adult titles that will be prominently displayed in our digital collection for quick and easy unlimited access from June 7 – August 7, 2017.

How does it work?  To use OverDrive, students browse the secure website of more than 3,784 titles, log in with their school credentials, borrow, and enjoy on computers, tablets, smart phones, and eReader devices.  Encourage your student to check OverDrive out today!

3rd Grade Track Meet

3rd grade was lucky to have great weather today for their track meet! The students  worked hard and ran fast!  Great job 3rd grade!

Third Grade Shares Their Favorite Books


The third graders have been working since Christmas on their book shares.  Each student read a novel, wrote a book report, and made a visual aid to go with their book. Today they shared their reports with the rest of the school.

We LOVE Our Office Staff


The students and teachers at Spanish Oaks spoiled our amazing Office Staff all week long!  Mrs. Carter, Mrs. Johnson, Mrs. Peterson and Miss Lenay (school nurse) were treated to ... sweet rolls and chocolate milk, flowers with "love notes", serenades, personalized soda drinks, sticky notes, banners, class books, poems, songs, and gift cards!  We LOVE you, ladies ...  We could not last a day without you!!

Brass Instruments Assembly

We had a group of 5 musicians come to our school to share their talent of playing brass instraments.  They taught students about the French horn, tuba, trumpet, and trombone.  The students also got to hear them play some songs.  It was fun and engaging for the students! We were so lucky to get them to come to our school!
