Spanish Oaks First Excellent Explorer Award Winners

Do you know of a student at Spanish Oaks who really "gets it" when it comes to exceptional behavior?  We do!!  We chose five students who were nominated by a faculty member or peer for going the extra mile ... we would like to recognize them for having a positive impact on our school.  They are students that have made a special effort by performing the remarkable behavior(s) of:  Being Kind ...Showing Respect ... Working Hard.  

Our faculty and student body cheered them on this morning as they "lapped" the school.  They also had a great time being treated like the Heroes they are at a special luncheon with Mrs. Brown.  Our Excellent Explorer Award winners are:  Jack Elmore (4th), "who works very hard and is nice and has been taking initiative and being optimistic."  Brisa Lopez (1st), who "exemplifies kindness, respect and a hard work ethic.  She is friendly and helpgul towards her classmates and shows respect every day."  Colton Johnson (6th), "is always kind and helpful to others.  He is the most respectful student and is constantly doing his best work."  Charly Finlinson (K), "is a great example to their class.  She is a great helper, she is kind to others, and shows great respect to her friends in the classroom."  Henry Massimini (4th), "has been an exceptional fourth grader at school by showing hard work and setting a great example to others around him."  

We hope to have many more Excellent Explorer Award winners throughout the year!  Congratulations, students!

Happy 243rd birthday Johnny Appleseed!  Miss Robison's first-grade class had a fun day today!  We started the day by making panhandle hats.  We did many curricular activities involving apples including graphing the color of apple the students brought to school and sequencing the story of Johnny Appleseed.  To end the day we got to watch the movie "Johnny Appleseed" while eating our homemade applesauce!

The 1st Grade Grandparents Program was a success!  These students worked so hard since school started to learn all the songs and their parts!  We had a practice every day this week and then they got to perform at the end of the day on Friday!  We are so grateful for all the grandparents and special guests that came to support these little ones!  They were beyond excited and did such a great job!
