Third-grade students in Mrs. Carolyn Creer's class, once a week, go into Mrs. Tara Farr's kindergarten class and help the students. Each kindergarten student gets a third-grade buddy to work with, whether it be reading to each other, practicing flash cards, or just helping the student with whatever they are working on. Whenever there is a holiday, or at least once a month, the students get to do a fun activity together. One fun activity is they got to make Christmas trees made out of ice cream cones, covered with frosting, and decorated with candy.

This year, Mrs. Stirland drew 6 names from each grade level. Once a name was drawn they were given the chance to spin the prize wheel, which included: king sized candy bars, class pizza parties, Sip-N gift cards, root beer floats, and money!

Congratulations to the students that won, it really does pay to read!

Best Month Ever!

December was such an awesome month for me.  I loved the excitement of the children, the kindnesses shown by so many, and the fun events that showcased the diverse talent of our students. I am proud to be a Spring Lake Hawk!

A wonderful story was showcased on the Nebo District home page that was about our school.  On December 21st a young man and his girlfriend asked to meet with me.  The young man explained that he had been a student at Spring Lake more than 10 years ago.  While young, his parents had struggled financially and he often received a stamp on his hand reminding him that he owed lunch money.  He didn't want to add extra stress to his parents, so he would often go in the bathroom and scrub off the stamp so his parents wouldn't see it.  Now older, the young man is doing well and wanted to give back to his old school in a way that would really make a difference.  He made a substantial contribution to our school lunch department that enabled us to eliminate outstanding balances for many families.  This event touched all of us and I was completely humbled by this and many other services donated by students, parents and teachers at our school.  We have an awesome school community, one that I am proud to be a part of.

The students worked hard all month earning Hawk Bucks that they could spend on tokens for the toy tower, recess passes, board game passes, Hero Hawk keychains, cookie cutters or to enter to win fun prizes in a 50-prize drawing.  The faculty enjoyed E.L.F. week (Everybody Loves our Faculty).  Teachers wore pajamas and enjoyed a pancake breakfast, competed in an ugly sweater contest, played board games during an extended recess, decorated sugar cookies and slurped the "world's best" cup of hot chocolate.  

Here are a few pictures highlighting some of my favorite moments from December.  I hope your holidays were equally amazing!  ~Mrs. Jordan

Students began the last day of school for the year by singing in the gym. Mrs. Poulsen's class started off by performing Christmas songs and playing 'cups'. In between songs Mrs. Cladwell's class told Christmas Jokes. The teachers finished up the singing by their version of the 12 Days of Christmas and what students say and "We Wish You a Merry Christmas".

A Touching Christmas Miracle

Spring Lake Elementary News - Fri, 12/29/2017 - 12:13pm

Our school had a young man, about the age of 18 to 20 years old, come into the school. He said that he was a student here many years ago. His parents struggled and owed money for school lunches. The lunch workers would put a stamp on this former student's hand to let his parents know they needed to pay. However, the former student knew his parents didn't have a lot of money, so he would wash the stamp off at school before he went home. You see, he didn't want his parents to have one more thing to worry about. This week, he came in, and paid off four students' lunch accounts - which was a substantial amount. 

This is what Christmas is all about. Thank you young man, former student of Nebo.

We hope all have a Merry Christmas and a Happy Holiday.
