Our annual PTA School Carnival was a BLAST! It was the goal of our amazing PTA to "give back to the kids ..." They totally did this by providing an evening of FREE inflatables, a rock wall and a train for the students! Families enjoyed food and drinks, entertainment and a talent show, beautiful weather and friend-shipping. There were dodge-ball tournaments, a dunk tank (very popular), face painting, carnival games, and our infamous basket auction. We are SO grateful to all who volunteered hours and hours organizing, implementing, running games, cleaning up, etc. A huge "shout out" to our PTA president, Kelly Burtenshaw, and her phenomenal Carnival Committee and PTA Board ... we LOVE you all! A special "thank you" to everyone for coming, and for continuing to support our PTA as they support our school through our fundraising carnival!
We are so proud of all of our Kindergarten students. They did an amazing job singing some fun songs for their families. They are all excited to be headed to 1st grade! Thank you, Miss Mellor and Mrs. Robinson, for an awesome year ... we love you!!
Spanish Oaks students totally earned today’s school-wide reading celebration by meeting (... and exceeding with 1,896,810 TOTAL minutes!) their reading goal of 1,750,000 minutes read!!! Each grade-level met outside at their assigned time for instructions from Mrs. Brown ... We had three (3) 15 minute rotations during each 45 minute time:
- water/bucket relay w/ Creamie
- fire truck (ginormous sprinklers)
Our students had a blast! “This is the best day of my life!” “Can we do this again next year!!??” “That was SO awesome!” “I don’t know who made the pizza, but tell them it was delicious!” ... just some of the feedback we received.
A huge “thank you” to our wonderful organizer, Aubrey Smith, as well as our parent volunteers: Sarah O’Gwin, Nicki Newman, Laura Theodosis, Kelly Burtenshaw, and Kimberley Marsden! A special expression of appreciation and “shout out” to Spanish Fork Fire Department volunteers, Matt Taylor and Kendall Young ... you made this day EPIC for our students!
Another huge thank you to, Mrs. Brown, for providing all the pizza and creamies! They were super yummy! This was a first ... and we were SO excited to celebrate our awesome student reading!!
Our orchestra did such a good job as they shared their talents with us today. They have worked so hard and come a long way this year. Students, you can be proud of yourselves for a job well done! A special thanks to Mr. Hansen for all his hard work and effort!
Last week's lunch worker of the week was Colton Webster. Colton was so kind he even stopped to see if there was anything he could do for the lunch ladies.
This week, Ryan Teasdale was making sure the tables were clean for every student. Thanks to our last two lunch workers of the year :)
