We were honored to hear our Spanish Oaks orchestra perform for us this morning in a school wide assembly. They spread the feeling of Christmas as we heard Christmas songs from around the world. A special thanks for the time and effort put in by both the orchestra members and our orchestra teacher, Mr. Hansen. Well done!
After reading and studying about what a K-9 Officer does, the 3rd grade got to hear and learn from Officer Cory Grover and his K-9, Lorde. Students got to learn about how Lorde was trained, and the many hours it takes to get a dog ready to become a police dog. They were very excited to watch Lorde in action as he used his skills to find hidden objects ... even on top of the piano!
Congratulations to our amazing students who represented Spanish Oaks in the District Chess Tournament held at Art City Elementary on Saturday. They played hard and brought back individual trophies, awards and ribbons, as well as this awesome trophy for our school! Well done, Chess Masters!
Hooray for Spanish Oaks students for winning such a cool trophy for our school at the chess tournament this morning! The Chess Tournament for Nebo School District was held on Saturday, December 6, 2014 at Art City Elementary for Grades K-6. It was a 5 Round Non-rated Swiss Tournament, and these students from Spanish Oaks did awesome!!
"Give us liberty or give us lunch detention" were the words shared in Miss Hughes' class on Friday when the students called out, "No Taxation without Representation!" These words were followed by a "controlled" snowball fight aimed at their teacher to show their frustration with taxes. What a fun way to learn!
Miss Robison's class learned the correct behavior that would be expected during rug time in their classroom. They modeled not listening/not raising their hands, then modeled the correct behavior by raising their hands. They are an awesome class and choose correct behavior every day!
