Inclement Weather Plan for Spanish Oaks

Spanish Oaks Elementary News - Fri, 11/14/2014 - 5:58pm

As the weather begins to cool, the expectation is for students to go outside on appropriate days.  Students need to come dressed for outside play.  When the temperature is below 20 degrees, students will be inside.  On days when the temperature is between 20-32 degrees, we will make a careful decision as to whether an 'outside' or 'inside' day is appropriate.  Wind chill, air quality and precipitation will always be taken into consideration when making these decisions.  As the inevitable ‘inside day’ is needed, we are grateful to our specialists who will supervise students in the school’s vestibules, providing appropriate inside activities. 

The front and back doors on the east end of the school will be open each morning at 8:00 a.m. Students are welcome to choose to stay inside or go outside once they arrive at school each morning.  If students choose to remain inside, they need to stay in the east hall by the lunchroom where supervision can be provided.  To facilitate student drop-off, the front doors on the west side of the school by the kindergarten rooms will be opened at 8:45 a.m.  Students are welcome in classrooms after 8:45 a.m.  We will continue to have our PM Kindergarten students come to the front door.  This will help us keep our students safe and our school secure.

Miss Clarissa Putnam teaches kindergarten here at Brockbank. She lives in Provo. Clarissa likes to sing, dance, read, play piano, go 4-wheeling, and hanging out with family. Some of her favorites are the color yellow, all kinds of music, all movies but especially likes Disney and Pixar movies, Harry Potter books, eating at Red Iguana (Mexican food), and watching football and rugby. Clarissa's favorite vacation destination is to go to Idaho! Something she said no one knows about her is that she has never had a broken bone and that she is petrified of fish! Clarissa did her internship here at Brockbank last year in Mrs. Janna Runolfson's first grade class and we were so happy to have her come back this year teaching kindergarten. We love having Clarissa at Brockbank!

The students of Landmark High School, in Spanish Fork, were visited by  Mark Harrison from Broadview University and he did a presentation on college and how you will make more money going to college. Mark  also taught the students that there are colleges for different people. For example some colleges offer more hands on learning than the usual lesson or  classroom learning. For many students the ability to work with you hands, or have that hands on learning experience can make a big difference in what and how they learn. .

National Junior Honor Society Provides Service

The National Junior Honor Society is the nation's premier organization established to recognize outstanding middle level students. More than just an honor roll, NJHS serves to honor those students who have demonstrated excellence in the areas of scholarship, leadership, service, citizenship and character. These characteristics have been associated with membership in the organization since its beginning in 1929.

Diamond Fork National Jr. Honor Society students are staying busy serving various groups in our area.  We recently completed a service project to benefit Native Americans living on the Navajo Reservation in the Four Corners region.  Our members made 11 blankets and 16 scarves using fabric donated by a parent.  In addition, some of our members used looms to knit 47 winter hats.  These students came in many days during E-time as well as working at home to complete the hats by the deadline. 

We are now in the process of collecting packages of chewing gum for donation to the Food and Care Coalition in Provo.  The gum will be part of a Christmas gift bag given to each patron of the shelter.  We have committed to donating 250 packs of gum.  We currently have about half of that donation and would appreciate any donations from our student body.  The gum will be delivered when we go spend an afternoon helping serve lunch to the patrons and entertaining them with a Christmas program.
