A huge "hooray" goes out our Kiwanis TERRIFIC Kids recipients for 2017. They are a great bunch of students! We have: Alia Jensen and Mitchell Kendall from Mrs. Taylor/Mrs. Dyches class; Alexa Adams and Quinn Burtenshaw in Mr. Bradford's class; and Avery Duncan and Karter Barbakos from Mr. Crockett's class. Well done, students!
We are sad to say goodbye to the following teachers and staff members: Katie Haddock, McKensie Bellomy, Shaelee Nielsen, Kylie Rosenvall, Todd Bradford, Gaye Cummings, Carolyn Harrison, Jill Abbot and Joan Lunceford. They have had a deep and lasting impact on all of us here at Spanish Oaks. Each one has left their mark as they have loved their students and done their best to make school an awesome place to be. They will be deeply missed by all. We want to wish them well in their new adventures!
Nicole Cutshall kicked off our last school assembly by making a few remarks on UDOT SNAP and presenting our school a check for $150.00, a plaque and a banner designating our school as the Top Walking and Biking School! We are so pleased and want to thank the students who participated and made this possible. Kendahl Mendez and Kaden Kolste each won a scooter and a helmet as part of the celebration. We also gave away our last bike of the year to Zephyr Elliot. Congrats, everyone!
One thing I personally look forward to every year is the 2nd grade Invention Convention. Students get to make their own inventions whether it be a life hack to make life easier or a cool game they created. Then classes sign up to come see all of the inventions. I was very impressed with the inventions the 2nd graders came up with. Way to go 2nd grade!
Our students did a great job being a character from Utah history today in the Fourth Grade Wax Museum. They has some fun characters, creative costumes and great memorized information on their chosen person. Thanks parents and teachers, for your hard work in helping your students to be successful!
This year the students of Spanish Fork elementary schools participated in the city's Walk For Life project ... Students were invited to bring the name of someone in their family who is (or was) a Veteran that they then represented in the Walk For Life. This name was placed on their "dog tags" for the day. A “Wall of Honor” was also created in correlation with our Walk For Life walk in May ... The idea of the Wall of Honor was to have each 5th Grade student honor their service member with a small memorial page. This Wall of Honor page was displayed with all 1200 other students on the day(s) of the walk, May 17 and 18th. Students went to eight (8) different stations where actual Veterans shared stories of their service. It was an amazing day, beginning with a Flag Ceremony and closing with the Retiring of the Colors. Thank you, Spanish Fork, for this unforgettable opportunity! Thank you to all Veterans, past and present, for your service.
