A very special THANK YOU to Miranda Duke, Erin Smith and Angie Warner for their awesome efforts in providing this wonderful opportunity for our children!

Student Arrival Time

The outside doors to our school are open each morning at 8:00 a.m.  Students are encouraged to enjoy being outside whenever possible, but are welcome in the east hall if they choose to come inside.  Supervision will be provided beginning at 8:30 a.m., and students will be invited to go to their classrooms at 8:45 a.m.  If your child needs to come to school early (8:00-8:45), it would be most appreciated if they could please come prepared with a book or quiet activity they can work on.  Thank you for your continued support!

Box Tops ... A HUGE Success

A big THANK YOU to everyone for helping us collect box tops this year.  As a school we collected over 18,710 from students … YAY!!  THANK YOU!!

This year the class that collected the most box tops was Mrs. Taylor/Mrs. Dyches 6th grade class, with a grand total of 1,809!!  They have won a pizza celebration for their class!

Because there were so many classes who collected over 1,000 box tops this year, we want to reward those classes for their efforts.  The following classes had a special surprise waiting for them in the office:  Mrs. Olsen, Mrs. Tanner, Mrs. Gregory, Mrs. Reid, Mrs. Aagard and Mrs. Phelps!

Keep collecting your boxtops and turn them into your teacher for next year!!  Thank you to Miss Mellor for organizing this event and to our families for their support!

National School Breakfast Week

Nebo School District is celebrating National School Breakfast Week beginning March 3rd through March 7th.  The 2014 theme for this annual event is “Take Time for School Breakfast”.   We will also be holding a National School Breakfast Week art contest.  Students will have the opportunity to create a picture at school and can enter the art contest to win a prize.  Their picture might then be submitted to the district-wide art contest.  There will be 1 winner from each school who will receive a prize and then 4 winners at the district level who will receive bicycles.  The Nebo School District encourages families to participate in the school breakfast program.  Thank you!

Valentines Day in the Elementary!

Candy hearts, Valentine's Day cards, CHOCOLATE, photo booths, parties, and more is what you have come to expect!  But, Spanish Oaks goes all out with parties, Valentines boxes, and the candy!

Winnie the Pooh said,  "If ever there is tomorrow when we’re not together ... there is something you must always remember.  You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.  But, the most important thing is, even if we’re apart ... I’ll always be with you."

 

Teacher Spotlight: DeAnn Carter

Happy, fun, efficient, nice, awesome, helpful, funny, and playful are just a few of the character traits of our very own Mrs. Carter, who had her happy 1/2 birthday yesterday!  We are so happy that we get to have her at our school!

Mrs. Carter grew up in Duchesne Utah, but has lived here in Spanish Fork for a long time!  She loves Mexican food, romance novels, and going on cruises.  Mr. and Mrs. Carter also like to go 4-wheeling, camping, and playing with their 9 grandchildren.
