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.

Get JAZZED About Walking to School

Spanish Oaks Elementary News - Wed, 04/11/2018 - 7:24am

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 snap@utah.gov

Attention for Show Choir Parents

We have been invited to sing at Maple Mountain High School’s Music at the Mountain, April 11, at 7:00 P.M. In order to be ready for this, I would like to have some additional choir practices for JUST the Show Choir kids.

One more practice tomorrow, Wednesday, April 11th, at 8:30 a.m., so we can make sure we have everything ready for that night.

The kids will need to wear Hawaiian/Tropical/ bright clothing, Flip flops/sandals, sunglasses, beach towels, etc. Don’t go and buy anything. Just have the kids let me know if they need to borrow some of my things for that night.

Our call time to do our number on the stage is at 5:45I would like all of the kids there around 5:30 to be ready to go on stage. We will then leave the stage and have an hour before the performance. The kids can bring a snack to eat after our practice.

We are the opening number for the program. This is a wonderful concert for the kids to listen to.  Encourage them to stay for the whole program. However, I do understand that a lot is going on that day.  If you need to leave after that, please let me know when you pick up your child. We will be sitting in an assigned area.

Thank you so much for allowing us to work with your children in choir year. We love it, and we hope it shows!

Thanks for all of your support!

Energy Star Certification

Taylor Elementary News - Tue, 04/10/2018 - 5:25pm

Have you ever looked in the window of Taylor Elementary and wondered what this Energy Star sign is all about? Well let us tell you!

Recently our district applied to earn the Energy Star Certification and out of 44 facilities, ALL 44 qualified! This is amazing feat because in order to qualify a building must score in the top 75 percentile compared against other schools in the nation. We are proud to say Taylor Elementary was one of those 44 facilities in Nebo School District!

"Our staff has embraced the energy conservation program on our campus." said Mrs. Robbins. "We put forth a daily effort to reduce energy use in our building. Simple things like remembering to turn off all technology and turn lights off when not in use has made a huge difference in our building. We have all gained a sense of accomplishment from this recognition. Our students are also learning what it means to preserve natural resources."

We are proud to say Nebo School District has the most certified facilities out of any organization in the state of Utah. We are the Energy Star leader in the state. Taylor Elementary would like to personally thank Mr. Bodie Bradley and Mr. Russell Maughan, our District Energy Specialist, for making this happen!

Mock Disaster at Springville High

Springville High School News - Tue, 04/10/2018 - 2:21pm

(more pictures available)

A vast mock disaster was conducted this afternoon, April 10, at Springville High coordinated by many local law enforcement agencies, fire and rescue, and SHS administration.

Students were able to view a mock DUI head-on collision with two fatalities and three severe injury casualties.  Springville High students participated as actors in the mock disaster.  A University of Utah Air-Med helicopter arrived on the scene to take the most injured patient to care.

Over fifty professional rescue personnel assisted with the mock disaster in an effort to impress upon students the grave responsibility one takes when driving including the accountability to drive without distraction and without the influence of illegal substances.  The hope is to have students realize that their actions and decisions when driving not only impacts themselves but their families and friends.

The mock disaster concluded in the auditorium with an emotional mock funeral for the two deceased victims in the crash.  Finally, teachers followed-up with a “debrief” and discussion with their students during fourth hour about what they witnessed today and asked some of the following questions:  What are your thoughts about what you saw today in the assembly? Why do you think this happens?  What can you do to help prevent this type of accident from happening? How are you feeling after attending the assembly?

Mrs. White’s school news class discussed that they were impressed that so many emergency service personnel gave and will continue to give 110% of their efforts to save individuals who are total strangers to them regardless of who is at fault in an accident.  Students also discussed that although emergency services would prefer to have little or no emergencies, they are so well-prepared and trained that they can immediately jump into any emergency situation even at the risk of their own life to save another.

Fox 13 News was on the scene reporting on the mock disaster. 

Many thanks to the following agencies for their massive effort and professional manner in which they demonstrated to the students how law enforcement, fire, rescue, teachers, staff, and administrators care to give students information and experiences that will help keep them safe.

Participating Agencies:
Utah County Sherriff’s Department and Dispatch
Utah Highway Patrol
Springville City Police and Fire Department
Springville City Ambulance and EMS Services
University of Utah Air-Med
Springville High Administration
