Our Kindergarten, first grade and second grades celebrated 100 days of school today.  The second graders aged over night and came today dressed as a 100 year old.  They were moving kind of slow!  Our first graders' shirts were a little weighed down as they were each sporting 100 items hooked to their shirts.  We had everything from balloons to bandaids.  Happy 100's Day!

Mrs. Moxen and Mr. Johnson got to try out their new-found skills of getting along with everyone (and everything) at a conference on teaching students social skills and how to be resilient.  After all ... even llamas need friends!

Superhero "Cupcake Crusader" visited the first grade today to teach Miss Lybbert's class about opinion writing.  Each child chose their own superhero and powers to use as they let their classmates know why their powers would be the best.  There were a bunch of persuasive choices of superheroes for the day!

What a great bunch of readers!  In an assembly to reward the great reading going on at Spanish Oaks, we had a special visitor do some magic tricks for us!  Ronald McDonald himself celebrated 1,056,043 minutes read by our students.  Our bike winners are Adaline Rowbury from Mr. Rigby's sixth grade class, and Logen Bringhurst from Olsen/Dimmick's third grade class.  Congratulations to those two students, as well as to all the book and poster winners.  Also, a special thanks to our PTA for setting up such a motivating and fun assembly!  You rock, Mrs. Gunderson!
