Author Walk in Miss Linnell's Second Grade


The second graders in Miss Linnell's class have worked so hard pre-writing, editing and publishing informational books on an animal of their choice.  They were so excited to share their finished product with their parents.  The books turned out very professional and the students' did a great job of reading them to their audience.

Spotlight: Julie Anderson, STAR Tutor and Art Specialist

Julie is an outdoor enthusiast. She loves being at the ocean, the mountains, and the desert. She loves to try new things and is game for almost anything. She is an avid skier and is happiest on the slopes. She loves Indian and Thai cuisine and does not like to cook, so she has 3 skinny boys and a half starved husband. She is a first year teacher and is so thankful to the faculty and staff at Spanish Oaks for being so kind and patient.   

We are so glad you are here, Julie!!  You are doing an amazing job!


Math Is Fun in Kindergarten at Spanish Oaks

Mr. Hansen, our awesome district math specialist, visited Miss Mellor’s morning kindergarten class today!  They took a walking field trip together to each table to talk about different ways to share 8 “cookies” with two friends for lunch.  We had some great counting and exploration of number decomposition!  Super counting, students! 

Halloween at Spanish Oaks

Ghosts and goblins, witches and ghouls, Halloween was spooky here at our school!  A great time was had by all.  Thanks to mothers for helping with parties, and our 6th grade for their special treat after the parade, and to our student council for their help with Ghostie Grams!
