ABC Celebration in Kindergarten!!  Miss Mellor's Kindergarten kids had a "poppin" good time celebrating our first trip through the ABC's.  Miss Mellor dumped a huge bag of balloons on the carpet and each student got to pop a balloon.  Hiding inside that balloon  was a letter of the alphabet.   As soon as we popped all the balloons and found all the letters we put them in ABC order on our chart.

Miss Mellor's Kindergarten students had a fabulous time inside a giant black bubble this week.  We took off our shoes, crawled inside the big bubble and read Halloween stories with a flashlight.  Our favorite story was a book about Jack-o-lantern faces where the pictures of the book glow in the dark.  What a fun time we had!!!

Nebo Education Foundation Grant Awarded to Mr. Crockett

Fri, 10/20/2017 - 9:46am

The Nebo Education Foundation is composed of 20 volunteer board members who live in cities serviced by Nebo School District. Each month, the foundation meets to discuss grant requests and other ways to raise money for the continual improvement of Nebo School District. For the month of October, there were many teachers who submitted requests for grant money to better their classrooms and/or school as a whole. Congratulations to the following teachers who received grants from the Nebo Education Foundation! These teachers continually benefit our district with their service to their students.

  • Spanish Oaks Elementary - Gregg Crockett

“The purpose for writing this grant was for our students to show their work that doesn't get seen.  As we move into a more technological age, students are doing more and more with digital learning. This year my class made their own websites. On these sites they will be putting other digital work, i.e.: Writing, Digital Media Arts, Slides, and many more projects to engage their learning. Unlike most of our student work that we are able to display outside in the halls, this work has gone unnoticed by the students, faculty and our community. By having a TV installed and connected to the Liva mini computer, we will be able to display ALL our students’ work in the hall. A slideshow presentation for the entire school, as well as those who enter the building, will be visible for all to see and appreciate.”

“Beyond being able to place students’ digital works on the screen, we will also be able to have announcements and reminders from the school running in banner format. This will provide a service to all patrons who enter and exit the school, informing them of what we are accomplishing with our students, and what is happening at our school.”

Principal's Week at Spanish Oaks Fun for All!

"Everyday's A Holiday with Kali" was our theme for the week, as we celebrated our amazing principal.  During the week we celebrated Valentines, Christmas, Halloween, Cinco de Mayo, Fourth of July and New Years.  Each grade level took a holiday and did something for Mrs. Brown that corresponded with that holiday.  She broke a pinata, rode in a parade as the grand marshall, was "heart-attacked", sang to and all around loved.  We were also well fed with treats from each holiday. 

Thank you, Mrs. Brown, for the amazing things you do behind the scenes to make our school such a great place to go to school and to work!  We all love you!
