Some cute pictures of our Kindergarten Kiddos doing their At Home Learning. We have a little guy doing the Scavenger hunt with a magnifying glass, and a little girl reading with all her books stacked around her and thumbs up, among other great things! Thanks, Miss Mellor!

As you may have heard, Governor Herbert and State Superintendent Sydnee Dickson have extended the “soft school closure” until the end of the school year. Although we are disappointed that we will not be able to work with students in our usual manner, we understand why the decision was made and fully support them. That being said, we now will need to address a variety of very unique situations.
Our hearts go out to the Senior Class of 2020. The senior year is a very important part of the K-12 school experience. Please know that we are exploring ways that we can address issues specific to 12th grade students such as graduation, yearbook signing, grading, credit, etc. Any suggestions or ideas from parents and students should be sent to their school administration. You will be receiving more detailed information regarding those events as details are finalized.
There have been questions asked about possible changes to the lunches being served and the current school year calendar. Please be aware that we will follow the 2019-2020 school year calendar as posted. The last day of school will be May 22. Lunches will continue to be served at locations throughout the district.
The goal of Nebo School District and local schools is to continue to provide your student with a quality education through an online curriculum. Teachers will continue to provide online learning experiences and will be communicating through email or other online platforms throughout the remainder of the school year. Although these learning conditions are not ideal, we are extremely appreciative of the efforts made by teachers, parents, and students to adjust to this temporary method of instruction.
If you or your student are experiencing difficulties adapting to online learning or are in need of assistance, please reach out to your student’s teacher, counselor, or principal. There are many resources available for those in need.
Nebo School District and your local schools will continue to communicate with you as we find solutions to the variety of challenges that are being sent our way. We would like to thank you for your patience and support as we continue to navigate this challenging situation. We truly believe that by working together, we will be able to successfully complete this school year.
"The 2020 Rodeo Reading Challenge is coming to the Spanish Fork 78th Annual Fiesta Days Rodeo Fairgrounds Arena on July 20-24, 2020. This is the seventh full season for the Rodeo Reading Challenge at Spanish Oaks, and it should be an exciting event."
Spanish Fork City invited all the students at Spanish Oaks Elementary to ‘compete’ alongside the cowboys in The Rodeo Reading Challenge, March 1 through March 31, 2020. Students kept track of their reading during the month of March on their calendar and reported their minutes online to their teacher at the end of the month. Winners were chosen from each grade level. The following seven (7) Rodeo Reading Challenge Readers have been awarded two (2) tickets to the rodeo, with our grand winners receiving Justin cowboy boots, Wrangler jeans and a cowboy hat! Congratulations to all of our winners, and to all of our great readers ... in March our school total exceeded 197,371! Yee Haw, Spanish Oaks ... that's some awesome reading, partners!

Who said learning at home was boring?? We have so many fun things going on, from Zoom meetings with teachers, to art projects with Mrs. Johnson. Our students have figured out how to play virtual games with friends, and use SORA to find great books. Our librarian is dressing up and reading a book to our students each day, and we have "Where Are We Wednesday" going on in our second grade. Seesaw, Google classroom, IReady and Imagine Learning are just a few of the on-line programs being used. Keep up the great job, students! And thank you, teachers, for making learning fun!
