February Reading Celebration

Attributions: 

The students at Spanish Oaks Elementary love Mrs. Brown, so they are motivated to read when they have a chance to earn a party with her!  The more a student reads, the more reading tickets they earn.  All the reading tickets in the school are put into a big bin.  One student from each class is drawn from the bin to have a reading celebration party with Mrs. Brown! Students got to frost and decorate heart-shaped cookies, and you can tell by their faces that they had a blast!

Teacher Appreciation

We are spoiled here at Spanish Oaks Elementary!  I have never heard of another school PTA that goes through as much time and effort to make their teachers feel appreciated.  This year's theme for Teacher Appreciation was "United in Love" and boy did we feel loved!  The faculty room has been decorated to match the theme, and we have been eating ourselves to death with all the sandwhiches, desserts, and snacks!  Thank you to Lacey Nielsen, Dawnyeil West, Sara Liechty, Cheree Lockwood, and Camie Mercado for spoiling us!

 Kindergarten students were special guests today at a wedding for Miss Q and Mr. U.!!    The students prepared for the wedding by making crowns and bowties covered with words that have the qu combination.  With Mrs. Brown officiating, these two letters were united together so they will forever help each other make the /kw/ sound in all words where q u are together.  Like in the words quick, quiet, quilt, and quack.   After the wedding students enjoyed a little wedding cake to celebrate the happy day.  Congratulations Miss Q and Mr U !

Food Drive Finishes Up at Spanish Oaks

Attributions: 

The past two weeks the students have been having a grade level competition to see who could bring the most cans of food to contribute to Tabitha's Way Food Bank.  We had a whopping 2,074 items turned in!  Thank you so much to everyone who helped out!  Our 6th grade took first place, with 483 cans, 1st grade took second with 412, and 3rd grade finished off the top three with 314.   It is great to be part of such a super project that both teaches our children to care about others, and contributes to those in need in our own community.

Tuesday at Spanish Oaks we spent "A Day in the Life of Mrs. Brown".  Each class was assigned a time of day, and they were to come up with what they thought Mrs. Brown would be doing during that time.  Mrs. Brown then traveled around the classrooms to be treated to singing, poetry, relaxation therapy, treasure hunts and much more as the students celebrated what they thought she would be doing, as well as what they appreciate about her.  It was such a fun day, and students, teachers and staff alike did a great job of telling Mrs. Brown how much they love her.  She was amazed how well they know her favorites (and her idiosyncrasies); like mac and cheese, chocolate milk, vacuuming her house, peppermint patties and smoothing out the wrinkles and fluffing the pillows on her bed.  What a great day to be at Spanish Oaks!
