The students of Spanish Oaks Elementary had the opportunity to help raise money for New Life Orphanage in Ghana. Students were asked to collect used shoes and bring them to school. They are then the shoes are shipped to Africa where they are sold cheaply to street vendors, who then clean and repair the shoes to sell them in the market. The grade levels that collected the most shoes were fifth grade and sixth grade. Thank you to our student council for collecting and sorting the shoes and thank you to our students and their families for supporting this great charitable fund raiser. Our students collected 579 pounds of shoes.

Fifty Nifty United States

Fifth grade students from Spanish Oaks Elementary performed for their families and friends. The performance was a culmination of their studies of United States history. The program was a combination of songs, narration and skits which students have learned and rehearsed throughout the school year. The program started with Christopher Columbus and included other events such as the signing of the Declaration, Eli Whitney, the Emancipation Proclamation, the Titanic, Rosa Parks on the bus and many other important historical events. The fifth graders learned that indeed we are the Fifty Nifty United States!
