Mrs. Christensen kept the school rocking with karaoke ... Mrs. Aagard created a display of students' work from our Arts EXTRA Saturday ... Mrs. Bard organized a huge variety of crafts, i.e., paper plate masks, 3-D marshmallow art, duct tape designs, etc.  Thank you, PTA, for putting together an amazing night of learning and fun!

100 Years Old? 100 Items on your Tshirt? Check out Spanish Oaks 100's Day!

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!
