In our class we have been learning about the life cycle of butterflies. We got our butterflies when they were caterpillars and have watched them eat and eat, turn into chrysalises, and then break free to be beautiful butterflies. We have recorded each stage in our science journals and made predictions on what the caterpillars/chrysalises and butterflies would do next. After all of that, we celebrated by playing with the butterflies in a butterfly tent!

If you don't know a lot about U.S. History then the Spanish Oaks 5th Grade Program is the place to go!  The 5th grade worked so hard to memorize songs about American History, and they did an amazing job performing!  Not only did they sing, but they projected quiz questions between every song so we could learn too!  Great job 5th grade!

Our school read over 225,000 minutes in the month of March!!  We celebrated this great accomplishment with a reading reward assembly.  We have some very excited students since our rodeo assembly!  The following students received free tickets to the PRCA Champions Challenge Rodeo on June 3rd: Brendon Snyder, Aliza Curtis, Kameela Varela, Cody Drollinger, Carrie Kump, Anabel Chavez and Audrey Arndt.  Kameela and Cody were also the grand prize winners for our school, which entitles them to a new hat, boots and Wranglers.  These 7 students read a combined total of 6,015 minutes during the month!  Wow!!  Keep up the great reading so we can get Mrs. Brown on that wall.

Our Kindergarteners paraded their cars to "Life is a Highway" today for our studentbody.  They each had a super car that they have decorated and got to spend the morning in moving around to great spots in "America".  They learned about a number of historical landmarks, being visited by people in history.  Thanks students, teachers and parents for a job well done!

Outstanding Employee Award

We are so lucky to have Lindsey Downey at our school.  All of our students are always so excited to go to her for library.  She puts a lot of effort into her lessons, and the students always have fun! It's not surprising that she received the Outstanding Employee Award.  

If you don't know Lindsey very well then here are a few things about her:

1. Her favorite food is Mexican food.

2. Her favorite ice cream flavor is vanilla.

3. She wants to go bungee jumping.

Thank you Lindsey for all you do at Spanish Oaks!
