According to, Cinco de Mayo, or the fifth of May, is a holiday that celebrates the date of the Mexican army’s May 5, 1862 victory over France at the Battle of Puebla during the Franco-Mexican War. The day, which falls on Tuesday, May 5 in 2020, is also known as Battle of Puebla Day. While it is a relatively minor holiday in Mexico, in the United States, Cinco de Mayo has evolved into a commemoration of Mexican culture and heritage, particularly in areas with large Mexican-American populations.

Teacher Appreciation Week- May 4-8th

Submitted by tiffany.manwaring on Sun, 05/03/2020 - 21:24

All that is going on teacher appreciation week kind of got overlooked. Just wanted you all to know that we are able to still bring gifts to the front desk and they will get it to your teachers classroom for you.


This week is an awesome week to honor them for all the wonderful things they have been doing for us and our kids. I am so grateful for the teachers and leadership of Sierra bonita.


Office hours are 9 AM through 3 PM and again you can just drop it off with the teachers name on it at the front desk and they will get it to your teacher. Happy May to everybody and I hope you have a wonderful last few weeks of school.!!

Terrific Kids Awards!

Submitted by tiffany.manwaring on Mon, 04/27/2020 - 14:24

Congratulations to the following students for being recognized as our "Terrific Kids"! These students were selected by our school to receive a Kiwanis "Teriffic Kids" Award given by the Spanish Fork Kiwanis Club. Each year the Kiwanis Club recognizes outstanding 6th grade students from elementary schools in Spanish Fork and Salem for their contribution to the school and community. Their criteria for a Terrific Kid is one who is: Thoughtful, Enthusiastic, Respectful, Responsible, Inclusive, Friendly, Inquisitive, and Capable; hence, TERRIFIC.












We would normally have a special awards program to which the honorees and their parents would be invited. Unfortunately, this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this program will not be held because schools are closed. The Kiwanis club has printed certificates for each child which has been delivered to our school and Ms. Cope, 6th grade teacher, will be contacting you to figure out a way to get them to these students.

These winning students names will be engraved on a plaque that hangs in the front office of the school. This year, the Kiwanis club is honoring a total of 92 Terrific Kids in the Spanish Fork and Salem area.

Congratulations again to you and your child who is receving this award. We know that Terrific Kids come from families where the parents are involved in their children's education and in helping them set goals and achieve their potential. We hope that your child will continue to demonstrate excellence in all they do!
