On Monday, May 7th, the students at Spanish Oaks witnessed the sliming of many teachers, students and even Mrs. Huff, our principal. Sixth grade students that read the most minutes this year got to choose whether they wanted to be slimed or wanted to slime someone else. Students set monthly reading goals and worked hard to meet them throughout the year, and to improve and progress in reading.

Students, teachers and staff at Spanish Oaks Elementary have made a commitment again this year to participate in the Road to Success reading program sponsored by the Ken Garff Automotive Group. The students were rewarded for their efforts in reading by being entertained by a magic show preformed by Paul Brewer.
Through this yearly reading program students are encouraged to become avid readers and foster a love for reading. This program is fun and exciting as students earn prizes and incentives by accumulating reading minutes. Six lucky readers were drawn to win bicycles and saving bonds at the assembly

Annette Crane, foster grandparent volunteer, has spent the last two years at Spanish Oaks
Elementary volunteering to help students meet their academic goals. Annette moved here from California a few years ago to be close to her grandchildren and decided to volunteer in the schools. Annette said, “This has been such a rewarding job to see students work hard to improve their skills and to learn that hard work and determination pays off.” One student that works with Annette commented, “Mrs. Crane is so nice and she has a lot of patience and helps me to be a better reader.” In her free time Annette loves to design and sew quilts that she donates to veterans in need as well as to hospitals. She loves to spend time with her family and she loves to spend time grooming her yard. Annette is a valued employee! We appreciate all she does for the students at our school.
