Shaking it up at Oakridge School


One of our favorite planning time activities at our school is karaoke! The kids love the music, silly dancing and watching the technicians & teachers making fools of themselves.

Special Visitor Surprised Tasha's Class

We had a wonderful surprise yesterday when Kjersti (one of Oakridge's old technicians) stopped by to visit and to play her fiddle. Some of our students even had the oppertunity to play a few notes!

Welcome Back To School


Summer was fun but we are so excited to be back at Oakridge School! All of our old friends and a few new ones are here. We are looking forward to a wonderful year.

Oh What Fun...


For one of the planning times this week at Oakridge School they played with shaving cream & made colored pasta necklaces. The necklaces turned out so cute and the smile & giggles were priceless while they played in the shaving cream.

Nebo School District Office CTE Building, 350 South Main Street, Spanish Fork, UT  (Adults only, please.)

Back by popular demand: Perfectly Prevented II!  Last month we focused on identifying triggers for problem behavior and discussed what parents could do to prevent problems at home.  This month we would like to continue the discussion and invite those of you who weren't able to attend last month to join us!  We will be following more on prevention AND will be adding "reinforcement" techniques essential to helping with problem behaviors at home!

Taught by Michele Thompson, Nebo District Level Behavioral Specialist

There is no cost to attend, pre-registration is requested and appreciated so we can have an appropriate number of supplies for everyone in attendance.  Register online at
