We are so excited to present our Excellent Explorer Award winners for this quarter.  Get to know and love them like we do!

Kasey Glazier: "During our math class one of the students became upset because they were not able to finish their fast facts.  Kasey went out to the hall to help the other student practice their flash cards rather than play a game and work on his own fast facts."

Amy Bishoff:  "Amy is an amazing student!  She is kind, thoughtful, helpful, and a great friend to everyone.  She is not afraid to try new, hard things, and she is always doing her best work.  She is such a positive asset and example to our class.

Cashton Preston:  "He is a friend to every single person.  He also has a positive attitude.  I have never heard him complain and I have never seen him be rude to another student.  He always has a smile on his face, and is willing to help others."

Ella Chilton:  "Ella should be the Excellent Explorer because no matter what, she is always nice and positive.  She is nice to everyone.  When someone is sad she is always the one to go and cheer them up.  She is a good friend to everyone."

Keaton Grotegut:  "Keaton is always kind and friendly to everyone around him.  He is easy to get along with.  He is a hardworker.  Keaton is always on task and does his best!"

Nebo Education Foundation Grant Awarded to Mrs. Dimmick

Spanish Oaks Elementary - Heidi Dimmick

“I would like to thank the Nebo Foundation for the grant for books to add to our guided reading library in the M-P levels, as well as higher level books that are appropriate for third-grade students.  Third-grade is a pivotal year where students go from learning to read to reading to learn.  It is so important to help them find books that they love.  When students are exposed to books that are in a series that they like, then they are more likely to continue reading the series.  This helps students to love reading.  Thank you for making this possible!” exclaimed Heidi Dimmick, third-grade teacher at Spanish Oaks Elementary.

Nebo Education Foundation board members meet each month to review and award grant requests, consider fund-raising avenues, and other items that advance the educational opportunities for Nebo School District students.  The Nebo Education Foundation functions through generous donations made by individuals and businesses.

Foundation past president, Kristina Christensen, said, "It is a pleasure to receive the grant applications and see how remarkable and creative the Nebo District teachers are.  The Nebo Education Foundation facilitates these grant monies to help teachers realize their ideas and the students' potential.  Our foundation board gets to see a glimpse at how well our teachers are instructing our students."

WONDERful Night for Spanish Oaks 5th Graders

Wed, 11/29/2017 - 7:25pm

At the beginning of the year, each fifth grade class read the book Wonder by R. J. Palacio.  The students learned the importance of treating everyone with respect and "being kinder than necessary."  On Tuesday night, the fifth grade students and their families were all invited to go see Wonder together at the movie theater.  It was a great movie, with even greater company.

It was a WONDERful night for many Spanish Oaks 5th graders ...  The 5th grade classes all read Wonder as a read aloud and then planned a trip to enjoy the newly released movie together.  Students who were able to attend with their families joined the 5th grade teachers (Ms. Brown, Mrs. Jackson, Mrs. Sant) and Principal (Mrs. Brown) at the movies.  It was a WONDERful night enjoyed by all who attended!

Miss McKendrick's class loved learning about the brain through some hands-on science. Using the book "The Growth Mindset Coach", the class got into groups and put together their very own brain using Play-Doh. After each part was completed on their play-doh brain, they would test each other on the roles of each part: Pre-Frontal Cortex, Cerebrum, Cerebellum, Amygdala, Hippocampus, and Brainstem. Did you know your Amygdala helps you feel emotion? These kids do!

A huge "shout out" to the boys in Bear Den 1519 who decided to clean up our school playground for one of their service projects.  They worked hard Thursday afternoon and picked up a lot of garbage.  They were so proud to make our school a cleaner place to play.  Thank you, scouts, for choosing to:  Be Kind, Show Respect and definitely ...
