Spanish Oaks Elementary News - Tue, 10/07/2014 - 6:02pm

In each of our classrooms the teachers have been keeping track, using our "drops", of all the times their students fill someone's bucket.  At the end of September they turned in these totals and the bucket-filling winning class earned a 'thank you' reward activity with Mrs. Brown ... root beer floats!  Congratulations to Mrs. Rosenvall's 4th grade class for filling our buckets!

Taylor School recently hosted their annual Fall Carnival. Students and their families filled the halls and classrooms and enjoyed an evening of games and food. Some of the favorites were, 'Toilet Paper Toss', 'Face Painting', 'Sucker Pull, 'Fish Pond' and 'The Donut Walk" Along with the games and prizes, gift baskets were created by the classes that were auctioned off to raise money for the school.

Many thanks go to the PTA and committees that put countless hours into the success of the Fall Carnival. This is a favorite time of year for Taylor Tigers and their families and we look forward to it happening again next year!

Green Man Assembly

Red Ribbon Week:

Green Day

Students had the “Time of Their Life” at the Green Man assembly in connection to Green Day for Red Ribbon Week.  Clint Pulver from Utah Valley University entertained a sea of green Park Panthers with a Drug Free message that will stick with students tighter than a Green Man suit.

Clint shared a story when he was ten years old he couldn’t stop tapping his hands and feet in class.  This got Clint in trouble many times and even a few visits to the principal’s office.  Clint never understood why he was in trouble because the tapping was just a part of him and what he did. 

One day, his teacher asked him to stay after school and Clint thought for sure he was in trouble again.  To his surprise, Clint’s teacher asked him if he had ever thought about playing the drums.  Clint thought to himself: “I can’t even spell drums!”  Clint was surprised one day when his teacher bought him some drum sticks and told him to never stop tapping.  His teacher knew he had a gift and he should never stop playing the drums.

Clint shared a similar message to students telling them that people around them really care about them.  He told students they need to see their potential.  To never give up and keep doing what you like.  He also shared that we should complement our friends and classmates more and not bully.  He taught them a catchy song he made up called the “Good Job” song. 

Good job!  Good Job! 

Good Job! Good Job!

G double O- D-J-O-B

Good Job! Good Job!

He also taught students can’t do drugs and be like the Green Man Group.  Students were then entertained by a rocking drum performance by Clint and the Green Man Group.  Students screamed and danced as they enjoyed the message and music from Clint and the Utah Valley Green Men.

We appreciate Esther Wirfs from the PTA for arranging the awesome assembly to remind students to be drug free and for dressing Mr. Kay up.

 The rest of the activities for the week are:

Wednesday- Mustaches

Thursday- Bright Neon Colors

Friday- Crazy Socks and Shoes

                                "Too Smart To Start"

Red Ribbon Week is underway at Mapleton Elementary thanks to our wonderful PTA.  Monday we had a wonderful assembly with the Mapleton police officers to kick off the week.  They taught the students about safety and community awareness.  They brought two police dogs to show how they train the dogs to find drugs.  

Monday we had many students and faculty members wearing red and a mustache for the theme of the day "We 'Mustache' you to say no to drugs".   

Tuesday's Theme:  "I'm too BRIGHT for drugs!"  Wear neon colors.

Wednesday's Theme:  "Watch before you walk"  Wear crazy                   mismatched socks.    

Thursday's Theme:  "Put A 'Cap' on Head And bicycle Injuries, Wear A Helmet"   Wear a Hat!

Friday's Theme:  "Dress for Success"  Wear clothes that represent your favorite university, college or trade school.  *no costumes*    

Each student will recieve a Red Wristband to wear during the week to remind them to say NO to drugs.  We want to encourage the students to wear these wristbands each day!  Those wearing the bands will be randomly selected each day to win a prize.

Each class will create a poster showing the school the importance of staying drug free.  These posters will be hung in the hallway leading to the lunchroom.  They will be judged and the winning class will receive a donut party!

People make art with what they can find.  Art is made of material.  Art can have digital elements.  “The great thing about art is you can’t be wrong!”  Modern art is being created right now.  Art is whatever you make of it.  An artist that like to surf uses the resin he uses on his surfboard for his art.  Collage art takes many materials and puts them together to make one piece of art.  We created collage art today!
