Our school is once again participating in the Box Tops for Education program this year.  Classroom teachers will have a collection container in their room, and will help remind students to clip box tops and bring them to school.  We are having a contest to see which class can collect the most box tops.  The class that collects the most will win ... a pizza celebration!  The contest will run from:  October to February.   Last year we collected over $1,500 dollars in box tops.  This year's goal is $1,600.!   Please remind your students frequently to collect and bring in their box tops from home ...

Walk To School Day at Spanish Oaks

Submitted by sherri.peterson on Thu, 10/08/2015 - 12:34

Over 400 students, along with some siblings and parents, participated in Walk/Bike To School Day on Wednesday, October 7, 2015 for "International Walk to School Day."  Many came dressed in GREEN to show their support, and as a reminder to "go" safely along streets as you walk and bike to school.

Students walking, biking or riding their scooter safely, and using sidewalks and crosswalks received a green paper to put in a prize drawing canister when they arrived at school.  Twenty-four lucky students won a cool GREEN prize at the end of the day.  A special "thank you" to the parent volunteers who helped hand out green papers and reminded students to always walk safely to school each day.  A "shout out" to Mrs. D'Dee Rex for organizing our activity ... We are SAFE at Spanish Oaks!
