Miss Robison has had a great week of learning and fun as they celebrated the holidays with traditions from around the world. Poinsettas, luminaries and holly berry cards were some of the activities they were involved in. The week ended with a visit from a jolly man in red! Great week!
My Experience with Project Teddy Bear
By: Elena Cotton-Betteridge
"My experience with project teddy bear was a good one. We went around to every class in the school collecting stuffed animals. Then we would put them in a plastic bag. We did this for a week and a half. I knew we were doing something good, especially when I heard we collected over 500 teddy bears!"
Mrs. Rosenvall's fourth grade class worked hard this month researching, organizing and writing up presentations on a country of their choice and how they celebrate Christmas. They also created their own displays to share with their parents and the student body. They did an excellent job presenting their information. Nice job fourth grade!
Spanish Oaks very own Cheyanne Prather wanted to help clothe homeless children, so she came up with a great way to use her allowance. She bought candy and snacks, then sold them on the side of the road and at football games. She then took the money to buy more snacks and continued to sell.
What started as $40 ... turned into more than $500 as 7-year-old Cheyanne expanded her entrepreneur skills to help others. She is this week’s Channel 2 News Pay It Forward recipient. Thank you, Cheyanne, for being such a good example!
We were entertained by our choir this week as they shared some well-loved and some not-so-familiar Christmas songs with our student body. They did an excellent job! Thanks to our choir teachers for all their time and effort to make this a great performance! Good luck in performing for your parents this evening!
