September 2017 Nebo PEAK Award Winner Sherri Peterson


“Without Sherri, our school would flounder.  Her official ‘title’ is that of facilitator.  ‘The facilitator's job is to support EVERYONE to do their best thinking and practice ... to encourage full participation, promote mutual understanding and cultivate shared responsibility.’  Notice the verb(s):  help, support, encourage, cultivate, share, etc.  Sherri is the ‘action word’ behind everything we accomplish at Spanish Oaks.  She gives of her time, talents, and resources freely, and we are all better for having known her.”  Congratulations, Mrs. Peterson ... we LOVE you!

BE SAFE On Your Way to AND From School

Please help us keep all our students safe ...

"Parents, please remind your children to BE SAFE while on their way to and from school.  This morning I saw four kids crash on their scooters, and several others cross without the crosswalk, or enter the crosswalk without even stopping to check for cars or wait for me to get into the crosswalk first.  Most of these incidents appear to happen because the kids are "racing" their friends or siblings.  Please remind them to slow down and be safe; cars are not always paying attention.  I saw a car turn right in front of a student this morning, and it was scary!  Also, if you are driving in the area before or after school ... please be cautious.  Thank you!"  - Spanish Fork City Crossing Guard, Aubrey Smith

We LOVE Books from Our PTA


Mrs. Quinton's 6th grade students are going to be so surprised!  Thanks to our wonderful PTA, and the extra efforts of our Book Fair Chairperson, Jacoy Baird, they have a brand new, hardcover set of The False Prince to use for guided reading.  Thank you for supporting reading at Spanish Oaks!

Camp Floyd Field Trip

Jenna Fagergren

Fourth Grade had a great field trip to Camp Floyd! Students made candles and adobe bricks, learned how military men prepared their rifles, visited historic buildings, and simulated the pony express. A favorite for many students was the old schoolhouse where they wrote on chalkboards and played games from the 1860's. We learned a lot and had fun trying new things!
