A warm Spanish Oaks welcome to Miss Katie Shumway, our new 3rd grade teacher! “It is our choices ... that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities,” - Albus Dumbledore. This is one of Miss Shumway's favorite quotes, and aren't we glad she chose to come here! Miss Shumway was born and raised in Provo! She has 2 brothers and 3 of the cutest nephews in the WORLD. Miss Shumway attended Brigham Young University and is a proud Cougar!! When it comes to professional football, she is a die hard Steelers fan! Miss Shumway loves the beach, and history ...
The students at Spanish Oaks brilliantly survived the first two weeks of String Orchestra! From our amazing instructor, Mr. Hansen, "Your kids are excellent! They listen respectfully and do what they are asked. There are several who seem to have a natural knack for playing a string instrument. As you may have surmised, learning one of these instruments is no small nor easy task. We have acknowledged just how difficult it can be. However, we have also determined that we can Do Hard Things (one of our mottos).
Football players from Maple Mountain High School took time out of their busy school schedules to read to the students at Spanish Oaks Elementary who are more than half their age and less than twice their size. They visited classrooms and read their favorite books to the students. The players encouraged students to always work hard and to be the very best they can be!
Spanish Oaks students all gathered with their families under a cloudy sky for a movie night outside on the school playground on Friday, September 6, at 7:30 p.m. To kick off this year’s PTA focus of “Be Your Child’s First Super Hero”, The Incredibles was shown on a gigantic screen. Families brought blankets, pillows, chairs, and treats and joined us for our movie under the stars!
We are so pleased to welcome each of you back to another great year at Spanish Oaks Elementary! This year please find valuable information regarding school activities, calendars, policies, schedules, resources, etc., on our school website at http://spanishoaks.nebo.edu/. The entire staff is looking forward to working with you and your children! We are anxious to begin setting goals in preparation for an exciting and successful year.
