Decked out in our "Secret Service" sunglasses, each class at Spanish Oaks has taken time to think of a fun way to serve another class.  We have had cleaning, treats, decorating, stories and songs, etc.  I love watching the students sneak down the halls,  smiling and laughing as they do things to make others happy.
