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.
We had a great turn out for students who entered PTA Reflections this year. Holly Moss did a super job organizing everything and it turned out amazing. Special thanks to all our volunteers, as well as Kneaders and the Hale Center Theater for donating treats and awards. If you didn't particpate this year, you can look forward to joining the fun next year!!
Congratulations to all our Reflections participants! We are so impressed with all your talents, ideas, and abilities. Thank you for your wonderful artistic entries on our 2018 theme "Heroes Around Me". These are the artists moving on to the next level of judging, by category:

A huge “shout out” to our very own Heidi Dimmick, 3rd grade teacher, who presented at this year’s Learning Edge Conference. Mrs. Dimmick presented on creativity (see second picture). We are so proud to have Heidi represent Spanish Oaks ... she did an outstanding job, and even taught Mrs. Brown to draw!
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!
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!
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!
