Mrs. Allred's third grade class earned a class "trip" to Kenya, where they learned great facts about the culture, music and art of that area. The students are shown here seated in their "airplane", being served a snack by their "stewardess", Mrs. Allred. The students are looking forward to their next adventure!
Thank you to our amazing students who worked hard at filling buckets all week ... One teacher wrote, "This student walked so nicely in the hall and did one hundred other wonderful things!" Have you filled someone's bucket today?!?
Science is no ordinary experience in fourth grade at Spanish Oaks ... Mrs. Rosenvall had her 4th grade students up and out of their desks to rap and learn about the water cycle. We love to learn!
"It's called the water cycle and it never, ever ends ...
So better learn the parts my friend,
'Cause it's comin' around again!
Water cycle, water cycle."
Each week teachers will choose one student from their class as the bucket-filler of the week. Here are our newest bucket fillers for the week of September 1-5. We all feel so good when our buckets are full! These friends filled buckets all week long in their classrooms and throughout the school. We Fill Buckets at Spanish Oaks!
September is Attendance Awareness Month at Spanish Oaks, and all throughout Nebo School District! A special "thank you" to Mrs. Carter and Mrs. Johnson in our office who help keep track of us and help us remember to be on time and come to school every day. We appreciate our parents who help their children be in attendance and arrive on time for school each day. Thank you!
Kindergarten students at Spanish Oaks had the opportunity to help print the designs on their very own kindergarten t-shirts today with the help of Mr. Victor Dominguez of Logo Print Solutions. We walked to his printing shop and saw the big machine he uses to print each logo on a shirt. Every student was allowed to help push the pedal that rotated the shirts through the giant wheel where the ink and screening process took place. Then, each student caught their shirt "hot" off the conveyor belt as it came out of the drying oven!
Mrs. Phelps’ class enjoyed watching their class t-shirts be printed with the “First Grade Explorer” logo. Mr. Dominquez showed students how he pushes the ink onto the shirts. He then let the kids put their own shirts onto a conveyor belt that sent the shirts through the dryer to set the ink. A special "thank you" to Mr. Dominquez for teaching us something new and fun! We love our new lime green shirts!

Our second graders finished off the first week of school with a splash! They had a "cool" experience getting wet playing games with their classmates and teachers. It was a great way to end a fantastic first week!
