Last week was every teacher's favorite week of the year!   We sure get spoiled at Spanish Oaks during Teacher Appreciation Week.  Our PTA is way too good to us.  On Monday the PTA decorated our doors with words of affirmation from each of our students. The teachers even got drawn as superheroes! On Tuesday each teacher got their very own Swig drink as well as different types of yummy popcorn.  On Wednesday teachers got Jimmy Johns sandwiches and homemade soup.  On Thursday there was a soft served ice cream machine in the faculty room. Last the best, on Friday teachers had Texas Roadhouse for lunch and to top it off they sent us home with a gift bag!  We are so spoiled!  Thanks again to our PTA  for all they do for us.

Nebo School District is always trying to improve communication and responsiveness to our stakeholders. To that end, we invite students, parents and teachers to give feedback on teachers and administrators in Nebo District schools.  A link to the Nebo Stakeholder Survey 2017-2018 will be found on the Nebo home page at www.nebo.edu beginning Thursday, February 8 and will remain open until Saturday, February 24, 2018, where Nebo District stakeholders will be able to share their thoughts and experiences. (Parents and employees will be emailed a link to help them gain access, while students will be shown the link in their computer labs.)

The purpose of the Nebo Stakeholder Survey is to help us improve instruction and to keep our finger on the pulse of our patrons. For feedback to be most useful, we suggest being polite even when sharing intensely positive or negative feelings, sharing specific experiences that illustrate your ratings, and using appropriate language in all circumstances.

Thank you for your helpful feedback.

Tardy Smarties at Spanish Oaks

Mon, 02/12/2018 - 9:29am

We are having a great time with our Tardy Smartie "on time" celebration activity.  On random days, Mrs. Brown calls out a number over the intercom during morning announcements.  If the student who has been assigned that number in each classroom is in their seat and ready for the day, they get to come down to the office and get a Smartie from the secretaries.  Here are last weeks Tardy Smarties!

Students receive reading tickets for completing their nightly independent reading.  The more minutes a student reads, the more reading tickets they earn.  The more reading tickets a student earns, the higher chance they have of getting their reading ticket drawn to have a reading celebration with Mrs. Brown.  This month's reading celebration was getting the opportunity to decorate heart-shaped sugar cookies with Mrs. Brown.  The students had so much fun!

We had a very fun reading assembly on Monday! Students receive reading tickets for doing their daily reading at home. The more minutes a student reads, the more tickets they earn. Tickets get drawn at reading assemblies to earn books and at this assembly two students won bikes!  Another fun part of this assembly was that all the lower grade students were to become experts on the book “They All Saw The Cat” and they competed against our librarian Mrs. Hill. All the upper grade students were to become experts on “Harry Potter” and they competed against Mrs. Brown. #SpanishOaksExplorers #BeSomeonesHero
