50 Days of Kindergarten

Submitted by jenn.moxon on Fri, 11/22/2013 - 12:52

Learning our A, B, C's, numbers and counting are some of the first things we learn!  So, in line with counting, it has been 50 days of school already!  Our Kindergartners dressed up like they were in the 50's, learned to dance some 50's dances, and had some great root beer floats!  We love 50's Day and our Kindergartners!

5th Grade Colonial Days

Submitted by jenn.moxon on Fri, 11/22/2013 - 12:48

The 5th grade has been learning about what it was like to live in the colonial days!  Great times!  To culminate their learning, they dressed like children from the time period.   The students were all given names from the time period, as well.  They had spelling tests, played marbles, and built Jacob's ladders.

"Where words fail, music speaks."  Hans Christian Anderson said it, but Mrs. Christensen showed it to us all with her beautiful  rendition of Taps at the Veteran's Day assembly.  She studied Medical Specialties after graduating from Spanish Fork High.  Camping or a trip to Disneyland would be a great place to find Mrs. Christensen, her hubby, and 4 great daughters!!

Veterans Day ... Monday, November 11

World War I – known at the time as “The Great War” - officially ended when the Treaty of Versailles was signed on June 28, 1919, in the Palace of Versailles outside the town of Versailles, France.  However, fighting ceased seven months earlier when an armistice, or temporary cessation of hostilities, between the allied nations and Germany went into effect on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month.  For that reason, November 11, 1918, is generally regarded as the end of “the war to end all wars.”

Scary Strings at Spanish Oaks

The orchestra students at Spanish Oaks had a wonderfully scary time the morning of Halloween practicing and showing off their costumes.  "It is very difficult to learn to play a stringed instrument, but they are making tremendous strides," says Mr. Hansen.  The young musicians are working on practicing their music diligently for our concert coming up on December 17.   They are an awesome bunch and definitely keep it lively!
