Angie Lindstrom is a great choice for our employee of the year!
She loves the outdoors and goes to Wyoming a couple times a year to camp with her parents. She adores her parents, and is a wonderful daughter, wife, mom, grandma and every other title she holds. She likes to sew and is very crafty! She has so many talents, but one I saw regularly was her ability to fix things. I mean she is the laminator whisperer! She is just the best person on the planet! She is kind, thoughtful and an amazing friend to all that know her. To know her is to love her. She exemplifies what We want Spanish Oaks to be.
This spring, Spanish Oaks can win prizes for our school and students by encouraging parents to use the Utah Department of Transportation's (UDOT) free Walking School Bus app. This app allows parents to create walking carpools to help their students get to and from school safely and also reduces crowded drop off zones, improves health and increases activity. Between March 19 and April 27, parents who use the app to walk to and from school will enter your school and students for a chance to win the following prizes:
- The school with the most miles walked from walking groups using the app will win $500 towards the school and PTA's safe walking and biking programs.
- One walking school bus group will be randomly selected to win breakfast with the Utah Jazz Bear and a new bike rack for their school.
- Students can win scooters and helmets in weekly drawings.
- Three parents can win an overnight stay at the Blue Boar Inn in Midway, Utah's number one rated bed and breakfast.
Last year, more than 300 walking groups at 100 different schools participated in the event, improving the safety and health of schools and communities across Utah. Thank you again for your commitment to safety and your willingness to help promote safe walking and biking to school firstname.lastname@example.org.
