We LOVE our Spanish Oaks Custodial Team


A HUGE "thank you" to the members of our extraordinary custodial team!  Their efforts through the summer, and every single day, help make Spanish Oaks the place to be! 

Spanish Oaks First Extraordiberries of the Year

This year at Spanish Oaks we used the book "Ordinary Mary's Extraordinary Deed" as a kick off to our new theme for the year.  Our students will be highlighted for extraordinary deeds that they do for their schoolmates, and will be able to sign our grade level blueberry muffins as "extraordiberries"!  Here we have our very first extraordiberries for the new school year!  Nice job, students!   We are looking forward to a "berry" good year!

Learning Through Robotics at Spanish Oaks

The upper-grade students at Spanish Oaks were treated to an amazing assembly to introduce the Learning Through Robotics after-school program starting in September.  Participating students will learn to build and program educational robots, with applications in math and STEM programs.  Miss Jaylene helped the students get excited about our upcoming class; she even brought actual robots!  We are so excited to learn about robotics this year!

We Are Extraordiberries at Spanish Oaks

Can one good deed from an ordinary person change the world?  Well, we are going to find out ... This year at Spanish Oaks we are focusing on doing Extraordinary Deeds for those around us.  We will work to perform good deeds for others, which will multiply as they are passed on by those who have been touched by our acts of kindness.  It is going to be an EXTRAORDINARY year!
