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.
