Treasure Celebrations at Spanish Oaks


Every week teachers have been sending the name of someone in their class who has been a "treasure" that week.  We have announced their name(s) on Friday morning and invited them to come to the office for a special "thank you"!  Each weekly recipient added their personal quilt square to the “We Matter” quilt we have hanging outside the main office!!  In each classroom the teachers kept track using our "coins" of all the times their students act in a treasured way ...  At the end of the month teachers turned in these totals and the winning class earned a 'thank you' reward activity.  Miss Young's 2nd Grade Class were our "treasure class winners" for April!  They were treated to a treasure hunt for doing things that matter at our school, i.e., trying hard, doing their best, being respectful, being a good sport, making a friend, being respectful, etc.  Congratulation, students ... you MATTER and we "treasure" you!

Thank You PTA for an AWESOME Carnival

A ginormous THANK YOU to our amazing PTA for another outstanding carnival!  Thank you to everyone who came out to support our school!  A special "thank you" to the many, MANY people who helped, i.e., teachers, parents, faculty, staff, and our entire PTA Board.  A huge "shout out" to Kelly Burtenshaw for organizing this event, along with the wonderful ladies who provided delicious food, exciting games, phenomenal gift baskets, etc.  Our first, and hopefully annual, Spanish Oaks Got Talent was amazing ... thank you, Laura Theodosis, for organizing this fun opportunity for our kiddos.  Thank you to all who stayed to help clean up ... we are SO grateful for each of you and thank you for your support and service!

We want to publicly thank our fabulous Carnival Committee:

Emily Baugh Gunderson - For the amazing basket auction!
Marne' Olsen - For organizing & running all the carnival games!
Laura Aldrich Theodosis - For organizing our first ever 'Spanish Oaks Got Talent'!
Lacy Davis Nielsen & Camie Jane Mercado - For organizing, arranging, and serving our food!!

Thank you!  Thank you!  We couldn't have done it with out you!

FREE eBooks for the Summer


Nebo School District is gearing up for summer break.  While summer presents an opportunity to relax and enjoy the sunshine, we want our students to continue to find ways to learn while away from the classroom.

We have an exciting reading service available through OverDrive.  The OverDrive collection provides free 24/7 access to eBooks and audiobooks.  What better way to engage your student’s mind than through reading!

This summer, the OverDrive Summer Read program will offer a collection of Juvenile and Young Adult titles that will be prominently displayed in our digital collection for quick and easy unlimited access from June 7 – August 7, 2017.

How does it work?  To use OverDrive, students browse the secure website of more than 3,784 titles, log in with their school credentials, borrow, and enjoy on computers, tablets, smart phones, and eReader devices.  Encourage your student to check OverDrive out today!

Third Grade Shares Their Favorite Books

1 of 13

The third graders have been working since Christmas on their book shares.  Each student read a novel, wrote a book report, and made a visual aid to go with their book. Today they shared their reports with the rest of the school.

We LOVE Our Office Staff


The students and teachers at Spanish Oaks spoiled our amazing Office Staff all week long!  Mrs. Carter, Mrs. Johnson, Mrs. Peterson and Miss Lenay (school nurse) were treated to ... sweet rolls and chocolate milk, flowers with "love notes", serenades, personalized soda drinks, sticky notes, banners, class books, poems, songs, and gift cards!  We LOVE you, ladies ...  We could not last a day without you!!
