This year at Spanish Oaks we are focusing on being "Bucket Fillers"!  Each of us has an invisible bucket.  It is constantly emptied or filled, depending on what others say or do to us.  When our bucket is full, we feel great.  When it’s empty, we feel awful …  At Spanish Oaks, we fill buckets!

Spanish Oaks Elementary News - Fri, 08/22/2014 - 2:08pm

Everyone was very excited, and a little nervous for the first day of school in 1st grade, even the teachers.  As all of the students gathered on the carpet for a story, one new friend raised his hand ...

Teacher:  "Yes, do you have a question?"
Student:  "Teacher, I was just wondering ... Is there a reason why your shoes don't match?"

Welcome back to school, everyone!

Brockbank Receives Generous Donation of School Supplies!

Brockbank Elementary News - Thu, 08/21/2014 - 4:01pm

Brockbank School sincerely appreciates the generous donation of school supplies from JCPenney Logistics (the catalog portion of JCPenney).  They are housed here in Spanish Fork and wanted to help out a local school.  The employees have been working all month to donate school supplies.  At the end of the month, they held a drawing and employee Raelyn Mulder was drawn out.  As the winner, she got to select which Spanish Fork area school she would like the donations to go to.  Her good friend had children recently attend Brockbank and had such a good  experience, she selected our school.  We appreciate their generosity!  These supplies will go to students who need them.  Thank you, JCPenney Logistics!

Creating the Magic at Westside.

Westside Elementary News - Tue, 08/19/2014 - 4:19pm

To begin the new school year, Principal Matis encouraged teachers to 'Be the Magic'.  Not only did Mrs. Matis dress up as famous Disney characters during teacher development (Mulan, Belle, the list goes on), but she also motivated the entire faculty to look for and create little "Wow!" moments that promote a positive learning environment. As a part of the teacher development, teachers will be reading a copy of the book Lessons from the Mouse which is a guide for applying Disney World's secrets of success an organization, a career, and life in general.  "It's not the magic that makes it work, it's the way we work that makes it magic."
