Hooray for Spanish Oaks students for winning such a cool trophy for our school at the chess tournament this morning! The Chess Tournament for Nebo School District was held on Saturday, December 6, 2014 at Art City Elementary for Grades K-6. It was a 5 Round Non-rated Swiss Tournament, and these students from Spanish Oaks did awesome!!
Have you ever felt better after someone gave you a friendly smile or happy grin? This is the "ripple effect" of a full bucket, and what is happening at Spanish Oaks every day! Pictured are this week's Bucket Fillers ... Great work filling buckets, friends!
"Give us liberty or give us lunch detention" were the words shared in Miss Hughes' class on Friday when the students called out, "No Taxation without Representation!" These words were followed by a "controlled" snowball fight aimed at their teacher to show their frustration with taxes. What a fun way to learn!
Our 6th grades enjoyed a trip to BYU for Christmas Around the World. They enjoyed learning about different cultures and their dance styles from all over the world.
Miss Robison's class learned the correct behavior that would be expected during rug time in their classroom. They modeled not listening/not raising their hands, then modeled the correct behavior by raising their hands. They are an awesome class and choose correct behavior every day!
Miss Robison's second grade class enjoyed watching their class t-shirts being made. It was a great learning experience and opportunity for them to be a part of creating their class shirts.
Keeping students safe is a priority at Spanish Oaks Elementary. A special "thank you" to our teachers, specialists, custodians, etc., who all take turns making sure our students find their way to and from school safely each day. Mrs. Lindstrom (pictured) is out in front of our school every morning, rain or shine. Give her a wave and a big smile next time you see her! We appreciate each of you!
It is our pleasure to participate in "Project Teddy Bear" again this year! We will be collecting items beginning December 1, 2014 - December 12, 2014. We will be collecting new or gently-used stuffed animals. These stuffed animals will go to thousands of at-risk children in Utah. Our goal for "Project Teddy Bear" this year is to collect at least 100 stuffed animals.
