Students, parents and staff were excited to welcome back our amazing teachers! We have the BEST jobs in the world and are so lucky to learn alongside your children every day! Thank you for sharing them with us ... Bring on the new year!!
Teachers interested in having a scooter holder made for their room by our local Eagle Scout, Trenton Teasdale, signed up in the Spring with high hopes ... Well, Trenton delivered! Each of our teachers now has a freshly varnished, home-made scooter holder to keep their coatrooms nice and tidy. Well done, Trenton ... Thank you!
A huge "thank you" to all of the parents who joined the PTA and signed up to volunteer at our school registration. We still have many volunteer opportunities and needs. Please consider volunteering to help make this year a success! Contact Misty Bard to see where there is a need @ lifeasabard [at] yahoo.com.

Elementary Registration ... Thursday, July 31, 2014 from 7:30 a.m.-4:00 p.m.
Our very own Spanish Oaks Elementary was one of the 39 buildings in Nebo School District to celebrate achieving the Energy Star Recognition Award! This is the most of any school district in the state of Utah, with the recognition being presented to the most energy efficient buildings in the country. To earn the ENERGY STAR Certification, buildings must rate in the top 25 percent nationwide for energy efficiency. Nebo averaged in the top 10 percent. “We are extremely pleased to receive this recognition from ENERGY STAR,” said Nebo School District Superintendent Mr
Congratulations to our very own Mrs. Carter for being awarded the Nebo School District's PEAK Award (Positive Energy And Kindness)!! A grateful Spanish Oaks nominating parent writes, "This ‘guardian angel’ cares for [my son] while he is at school ... My son truly loves Mrs. Carter and knows that no matter what is going on, he will be helped ... I could never thank Mrs. Carter enough for all she does. I feel safe taking my son to school. The only word that can describe her is ‘Angel’!”
The first week of summer, Spanish Oaks students enjoyed our SCIENCE EXTRA Explorer Summer Camp ... Loose in the Lab! Interested students met for 3 days, learning from teachers and parents ... They kept a science journal, learned to use the scientific method, and conducted hands-on experiments. Thank you to Mrs. Aagard, Mr. Meeks, and our awesome volunteers for continuing the learning!
There is SO much to do, and these few amazing 5th graders did it all!
What an excellent game! The teachers had the edge, but the 6th graders gave them a run, or seventeen, for their money. The All-stars made a great showing in the last inning; had Mr. Johnson not taken out Mrs. Moxon with a hard line-drive to 3rd base, the 6th graders may have taken the lead. Good times!
