Spanish Oaks Elementary held their first annual Jog-A-Thon last Friday and it was a huge success! The students had such a good time, and were such troopers! Each class had chosen a class song to run to, and they were played all throughout the day. We plan to continue this activitiy each year! A special thanks to Nichol Lyman, Miss Babcock, Mrs. Fagergren and Mr. Crockett for all their hard work in getting things organized and ready to go! And a big thanks to Mr. Billie for his help setting things up. A Shout Out to Walmart for donating 500 bottles of water, fruit snacks and granola bars! They were so welcome after running laps! Also, thanks to each of you for your pledges/donations.

On 10-11-17, Spanish Oaks Elementary presented to the Nebo School Board! Three (3) members of our Student Council: Ella O’Gwin, Natalie Christensen and Colton Johnson, shared our school's theme (Be Someone's Hero) and motto (Be Kind, Show Respect and Work Hard). They were followed by Emily Gunderson, our School Community Council Co-chair, who discussed how we are using School LAND Trust funds at our school to support student learning. For our finale’, we were proud to share the talents of our very own Spanish Oaks Choir, directed by Maren Christensen and accompanied by Katie Drollinger. It was an amazing evening that brought the audience to tears. Well done, Explorers!
In connection with our science unit, the third graders at Spanish Oaks have been working on creating their own pumpkins. Each student was given a pumpkin that was grown for them by Mrs. Dimmick's dad. They spent time observing the pumpkins and then creating their own drawing of pumpkins. Stop by and see our "pumpkin patch."
Our very own Victor Dominguez from Logo Print Solutions was recognized today as the Utah Valley Chamber honored Nebo School District’s business partners. Victor is responsible for printing our grade-level T-shirts, and has become quite a celebrity around Spanish Oaks. Thank you, Mr. Dominguez, for your continued service to our school!
