Bond Meeting @ SFHS Oct 4 6 pm

Spanish Fork High School News - Fri, 09/28/2018 - 11:00am

Oct 4 at 6 pm in the SFHS library, there will be an in-person bond meeting.  Then on Tuesday, November 6, Nebo School District residents will have the opportunity to vote on the important bond proposal.  Please visit www.nebo.edu/bond2018, where you will find relevant facts you need in order to make an informed decision about the bond proposal on the ballot.

Nebo School District continues to grow by approximately 500 students per year.  Due to this growth, the proposed bond was initiated after more than a year of research and planning by district personnel and input from parents, guardians, and local government officials.  The proposed bond aims to accommodate growth and prepare for the future through the following projects:

  1. Building three new middle schools (one each in the Salem Hills High School catchment area, Maple Mountain High School catchment area, and Springville High School catchment area)
  2. Rebuilding Payson High School, Spanish Fork High School, and Springville High School
  3. Implementing a straight alignment pattern which means each middle school will feed into a single junior high, and each junior high will feed into a single high school (rather than splitting), so students can attend school with their peers through the completion of high school

Nebo School District is pleased that there will be no tax rate increase with this bond. This is possible because past bonds were structured in a way that kept debt ratios low and we have been aggressively paying off previous bonds.

More detailed information regarding the proposed bond can be found on our website at www.nebo.edu/bond2018.  The website contains videos, voter information, voting locations, and other information that may help you make an informed decision regarding the proposed bond.

If you would like to visit with us in person regarding the bond, four area meetings have been scheduled for your convenience:

  • September 26: 6 p.m. at Payson High School
  • October 3: 6 p.m. at Springville High School
  • October 4: 6 p.m. at Spanish Fork High School

The bond proposal is a plan that will impact the future of our students and community for years to come.  We hope that you will engage in the process with us and mail your ballot on or before November 5.

We have an exciting PTA Scholastic Book Fair coming to our school October 22-26!  We hope you will be able to make some time to come over to the school.  We will be open during school hours, and until 8:00 p.m. SEP night on Thursday. 

Did you know?  Reading just 20 minutes a day exposes your child to about 1.8 million words per year.  Reading helps students develop a stronger vocabulary, and in addition, students who read for pleasure average higher grades in English, mathematics, science, and history!

If you are unable to attend the Scholastic Book Fair, but would still like to donate or purchase books, you can do so at:  www.scholastic.com/bf/spanishoakselemsch

Thank you for supporting reading at our school!

Our 4th grade students had a great time at Camp Floyd in Fairfield.

They learned about the Pony Express, how to make candles and bricks. They were taught what it was like to have a military drill.

There was a Pioneer school house there and the students enjoyed seeing what it was like to attend school back in the day.

It was a beautiful day and the students had a great time! We have awesome students and staff at East Meadows!

Larsen 2nd graders visited the Utah County Equestrian Park in Lehi for their first field trip of the year.  They were able to learn more about goat, pigs, horses and other farm animals.  Students also were taught how shepherd dogs help round up all the sheep herd.  The 2nd graders also learned that many things we use and eat daily are made from some of these animals. After all the fun at the Equestrian Park, they got to eat lunch at Discovery Park in Pleasant Grove.  What a fun filled day!  Thank you to the parents who came along and helped.
