Spanish Oaks Elementary's very own Mrs. Brown was honored with Nebo School District's PEAK (Positive Energy and Kindness) Award on December 11, 2013 at the December Board Meeting.

In her nomination, Mrs. DeAnn Carter said, “Kali has only been our principal for a short time, but every situation that she has had to deal with (and there have been some difficult ones already), she has turned it into a positive learning situation.  To quote a student after he came out of her office, ‘That's a nice principal’.”

The students in Miss Lybbert's class treated the entire first grade to an amazing Readers' Theater for Christmas!  The students told the story of the "other reindeer" ... teaching us how the rest of the reindeer got their names.  Each of the children presented their parts beautifully and closed the program with their own rendition of "We Wish You A Merry Christmas", accompanied by their fellow first grader on the piano!  Thank you for a super program!
