PTA Book Fair at Spanish Oaks

Attributions: 

We have an exciting PTA Scholastic Book Fair coming to our school October 22-26!  We hope you will be able to make some time to come over to the school.  We will be open during school hours, and until 8:00 p.m. SEP night on Thursday. 

Did you know?  Reading just 20 minutes a day exposes your child to about 1.8 million words per year.  Reading helps students develop a stronger vocabulary, and in addition, students who read for pleasure average higher grades in English, mathematics, science, and history!

If you are unable to attend the Scholastic Book Fair, but would still like to donate or purchase books, you can do so at:  www.scholastic.com/bf/spanishoakselemsch

Thank you for supporting reading at our school!

PTA Reflections 2018 HEROES AROUND ME

"For 50 years, National PTA’s Reflections program has helped students explore their own thoughts, feelings and ideas, develop artistic literacy, increase confidence and find a love for learning that will help them become more successful in school and in life.  Each year, hundreds of thousands of students in Pre-K through Grade 12 create and submit original works of art in one or all of the available arts categories."

This morning we kicked off Reflections 2018!  Students watched an introduction video to learn about Reflections (link below) and were given an Entry Form.

The theme this year is "Heroes Around Me".   All entries are DUE October 22, 2018 (the Monday after Fall Break).  Entries can be turned in early if you would like to turn them in before the break.  All participants will receive a participation prize!

Students can pick up submission guidelines and an entry form today from the bulletin board outside the office and return by MONDAY, OCTOBER 22nd.

Where You Look, Is Where You Go ... Aim High!  Just like when you are riding a bike … where you look, that’s where you’ll go.  If you are riding down the road and you focus on the tree, you will run into the tree!  Instead focus on the place you want the bike to go to have a nice bike ride.  Where you look, that’s where you go; where you focus your attention is where you will end up!  Great job, students ... setting goals and going after them!  At Spanish Oaks we choose every day to:  Be Kind, Show Respect, Work Hard ... and Aim HIGH!
