Principal Moment

The last month of school is sooo busy, teachers sometimes wish they could fast-forward to the last day of school.  When the last day comes, they want to sloooowww it down.

This year on the last day of school, we will try to make it like any other day.  We will talk to students in the halls; we will laugh at jokes we have heard twenty times, we will ask what colleagues and kiddos have planned for the summer. 

Ten minutes before the bell rings, teachers will begin their final speech of the year.  It will go something like this, “Boys and girls, it’s been a great year…” At this point teachers’ voices begin to crack.  “And now it is time for you to move to the next grade.  You’ve worked hard and you are ready.”  Finally, the last bell will ring.  Teachers will stand up, wipe their eyes and without any direction the students will line up for hugging.  Teachers will bite their lips, tousle hair and pat heads good-bye. 

When the students are all gone, teachers will put the classroom to bed, load memories into a box, stack the chairs to one side, erase the “1 day left” from the corner of the whiteboard, close the cupboard doors, take one last look around the room, turn off the lights, and lock the door.

Then the year will be over.  Just like that.

Students will be dismissed at noon on Friday.  Lunch will be served at 10:10 for those students who would like to eat lunch.  Pizza is the only menu item; chicken nuggets and sandwiches will not be available.   Buses will be running the regular routes.  

Lunch Menu for the week

  • Wednesday 22nd – Chicken Sandwich
  • Thursday 23rd – Mini Corndogs/Mac – n- cheese
  • Friday 24th – Pizza only – no chicken nuggets or cheese sandwich

Sprinkler Day Cancelled

I am sorry to have to inform students and families that we will be cancelling this year’s sprinkler day which was scheduled for Thursday, May 23rd of next week.  It is determined that the persistent rain forecast will not be favorable for an outside water activity for younger students.  Thank you for being understanding. 

PTA Yearbook

The yearbooks have arrived.  Books should have been delivered this week to those who have purchased one. The PTA have ordered some extra books, BUT not a lot.  Yearbooks are available in the office; $15 per book. 

Registration for 2019-2020

Elementary Online Registration will be made available on July 25th.  Elementary In-Person Registration for the Spanish Fork area will be July 30th.  We will have a school nurse and interpreter available at school to assist with immunization records and completion of the online forms.  All information is available at http://www.nebo.edu/registration.

Kindergarten registration, traditionally held in March, has been moved to the summer and combined with grades 1st -12th. Parents can prepare now for registering their kindergarten children by making sure they have a birth certificate and that their child is current on the following immunizations: DTap, Hepatitis A, Hepatitis B, Polio, Varicella and MMR by the end of July.
