Student Job Fair

Park Elementary News - Thu, 09/14/2017 - 4:22pm

Park Teachers believe as you  let your students lead, you'll create a school culture of leadership and student empowerment. Shared leadership is one of the most fundamental paradigms of The Leader in Me. It is rooted in the belief that everyone can be a leader.

Park Elementary will be hosting their first STUDENT JOB FAIR!  Students and parents will attend the job fair where students can apply for leadership roles at our school.  This whole night will be designed to replicate a job fair experience that you would see in the "real world" We hope you will bring your student anytime between 5:30 - 6:30 on Monday, September 18, 2017. 

Just a few of the leadership roles that students can apply for:

  • Attendance Tracker (update school attendance trackers)
  • Communication Team (contact parents for special events, send Parentlink messages)
  • Computer Shut Down Team
  • Family Connection Leaders
  • Lost & Found Leaders
  • Sound Crew
  • Hall Posters & Information Team
  • Assembly Assistants
  • 7 Habit Art Patrol

Reading Rodeo

Santaquin Elementary News - Thu, 09/14/2017 - 3:07pm
(more pictures available)

The Santaquin Elementary reading rodeo was started a few years ago as an incentive to get the students reading over the summer. Our students had to read 60 days this summer to participate in the rodeo. The events in our rodeo are the stick horse race, lassoing a rocking horse, a snake in my boot, panning for gold, the horse shoe competition and the bouncy horse race.

This year, our reading rodeo was a huge success as we had 250 students who qualified to participate.  The students rotated through the different events. The kids had a great time doing all of the events but the bouncy horse race may have been the favorite as the horses were definately spirited and several kids were "bucked" off.  

Mr. "H" told a funny story about an elephant, a whale, and a rabbit while we enjoyed smores. We finished off the day with Mr. Aryle doing a hide race and barrel racing by Mrs. Lyons, Mr. Argyle and Mrs. Teemant.  Mrs. Lyons was the sure winner as Mrs. Teemant couldn't get Daisy the mule to go the right way and Mr. Argyle was a close second.  Congratulations to all our participants in the rodeo!  A big thank you to our reading rodeo committee and the PTA for making it happen.  YeeHaw!

Congratulations to Mrs. Finch, who received the district's PEAK award last night at the school board meeting! This award is given to those who have made a significant difference in their school by showing kindness and a positive attitude. She was nominated by Mrs. Sumsion and Mrs. Peck. Here's what they had to say about Mrs. Finch:

“Katelyn is amazing with her students and their parents/guardians. She is very patient and helps everyone feel at peace with the services that are being offered. She has exceptional lessons that help students improve a lot. She helped one student raise his SAGE writing score by 139 points!! Katelyn works diligently with teachers on student IEPs. She works with the Dance Festival and other events for our Events Action Team. She is always positive and willing to go the extra mile to make it above and beyond awesome.”

“I am impressed with Katelyn. She has a heavy load as a resource teacher. Katelyn consistently communicates with me on how we can both meet my five self-contained students’ needs and be a team to help them academically and socially. She is happy to accommodate or try different and new approaches so our students succeed. Katelyn has been wonderful to work with and is a huge asset to our special education program at our school. She is kind and friendly to everyone. She has welcomed new students to her class with a loving attitude and is always positive.”

Rees Elementary was honored last night with not only ONE but TWO Peak Award Winners.  Our amazing secretary Mrs. Nikki Thomas was nominated by Mr. Gull.  "“Nikki is everything you want in a secretary. She is kind, happy, professional, organized and she just gets it done! She is always so positive and happy with everyone that enters the office at Rees. She is quick to respond to the needs of parents, students, teachers and staff members. She has an incredible laugh that fills the room and just makes you feel good when you talk with her. Nikki brightens the school with her presence. Many people come to her, and she is right there to lift them up or keep them smiling. Nikki sets a professional, positive tone and is efficient in her duties. Nikki will take care of you when you visit Rees Elementary.”

Mrs. Burton is new to Rees, and has been here this year as a part time Resource teacher.  She has been a wonderful addition to our SPED department and we love having her here.  Mrs. Burton splits her time between Rees and Art City, and her principal at Art City, Mrs. Muirbrook, nominated her for the PEAK award.  "Karen absolutely loves her job. She is very experienced and knowledgeable about special education students and student development. She is willing to share her knowledge and expertise with all faculty members at any time. She has volunteered her time in other classrooms offering intervention ideas and techniques to teachers. She not only cares about her students but each student and staff member at Art City. Karen truly exemplifies positive energy and kindness.”

Congratulations to both of these very deserving ladies!!!

“Without Sherri, our school would flounder.  Her official ‘title’ is that of facilitator.  ‘The facilitator's job is to support EVERYONE to do their best thinking and practice ... to encourage full participation, promote mutual understanding and cultivate shared responsibility.’  Notice the verb(s):  help, support, encourage, cultivate, share, etc.  Sherri is the ‘action word’ behind everything we accomplish at Spanish Oaks.  She gives of her time, talents, and resources freely, and we are all better for having known her.”  Congratulations, Mrs. Peterson ... we LOVE you!

BE SAFE On Your Way to AND From School

Spanish Oaks Elementary News - Wed, 09/13/2017 - 5:09pm

Please help us keep all our students safe ...

"Parents, please remind your children to BE SAFE while on their way to and from school.  This morning I saw four kids crash on their scooters, and several others cross without the crosswalk, or enter the crosswalk without even stopping to check for cars or wait for me to get into the crosswalk first.  Most of these incidents appear to happen because the kids are "racing" their friends or siblings.  Please remind them to slow down and be safe; cars are not always paying attention.  I saw a car turn right in front of a student this morning, and it was scary!  Also, if you are driving in the area before or after school ... please be cautious.  Thank you!"  - Spanish Fork City Crossing Guard, Aubrey Smith
