SEP Dinner - Thank You PTA

Submitted by kali.brown on Thu, 03/19/2015 - 17:33

SEP Conferences were a HUGE success at Spanish Oaks!  We owe a special "thank you" to our amazing PTA for keeping us fed and happy.  Thank you, Katie Drollinger, Shauna Warnick, and all of the wonderful individuals who made food and volunteered their time.  A giant "shout out" to Texas Road House for catering our dinner.  Thank you, as well, to all the parents who came and celebrated their students' successes with us.

Big Reading Specialist THANKS at Spanish Oaks

Submitted by sherri.peterson on Wed, 03/18/2015 - 18:59

We, at Spanish Oaks, would like to extend a heart-felt "thank you" to Carolyn Allen, a long time Reading Specialist at our school.  Carolyn has been working most recently as a STAR tutor, assisting students in reading.  The students love working with her and she has been a great asset to our school.  Mrs. Allan is retiring to spend more time with her family, and is headed on a cruise to Panama.  Thank you for all you have done for our students and best of luck to you, Carolyn!

Team UP ... Join the PTA at Spanish Oaks

Submitted by kali.brown on Tue, 03/17/2015 - 18:56

The Spanish Oaks Elementary PTA is looking for volunteers.  While we appreciate all who join as members, we could use some more help in leadership positions.  This is a great opportunity to help plan activities for our school, sit on our PTA Board with the principal and teacher representative(s), and be “a voice” for how our PTA funds are used.  If you are able to be more involved this next school year, we would love to have you!

Currently our PTA is in charge of the following at the school:

  • Road to Success reading incentive program
  • Teacher & Staff Appreciation Week
  • Book Fairs
  • Ribbon Week
  • Teacher birthdays
  • SEP Conference Dinner(s) for teachers
  • Reflections
  • Weekly Faculty Spotlight
  • Family Arts Night
  • Spring Carnival fundraiser

We also add our support as needed for:

  • Vision tests
  • School Pictures
  • Arts EXTRA Clubs
  • Writing EXTRA
  • School Play
  • Room Representatives

On Wednesday, April 1, 2015 the PTA will be hosting a “Sweets and Stories” night in conjunction with the “BOGO” Book Fair.  During that activity we will hold a brief PTA election at 6:30 p.m. to elect the 2015-2016 school year nominated president, president elect, secretary, and treasurer.  We are still seeking nominations for a president elect and secretary.  If you would like to be involved in heading a committee, or participating as a president elect or secretary, please contact me @

Thank you,
Emily Gunderson

White House Tea at Spanish Oaks

Submitted by sherri.peterson on Mon, 03/16/2015 - 08:50

Our fifth grade students became President or First Lady of the United States for a day while they presented information about themselves to their parents. Their parents then used the information to determine which president they were depicting.  We had great costumes, and even some members of the President's personal security team (the fifth grade teachers).  Nice job, fifth graders!
