5th Grade Golden Explorer Awards Spanish Oaks

Submitted by sherri.peterson on Tue, 05/19/2020 - 14:10

These six 5th grade students worked extra hard this year and earned the Golden Explorer Award.  Requirements include: reading 20 different books in nine different genres, visiting and learning about historical places, attending cultural events, writing authors, and interviewing veterans.  They also have to complete ALL assignments, pass off all their math facts, learn the location of all 50 states and their capitals, and have high academic and citizenship grades.  These students worked very VERY hard to achieve this and we are very proud of their accomplishment.  Congratulations to:  Allena Good, Owen Young, Maddison Snyder, Madison Jensen, Tanner Christiansen, and Kenzie Baird.


Here's To You, Our Students!

Yesterday our teachers and staff had such a great time!  We picked up 500 balloons (thank you, Maceys, for your hard work) and tied individual messages to them, one to each student from their teacher.  Then away we went, delivering balloons to each student's front lawn.  As the time progressed, it was so fun to see the students who had figured out what we were doing and were waiting for us on the front porch or peeking out of their windows, waiting for their teacher to bring their balloon.  Our students are so worth recognition, and we want them to know we love them, we believe in them, and we miss them!!!  They are why we do this job!

Covid 19 Benefit

Submitted by sherri.peterson on Tue, 05/12/2020 - 14:50

What a great opportunity we as Spanish Oaks Faculty and Staff had today to drive the neighborhood and see the happy faces of our students that we miss so much!  It brought tears to my eyes to see how excited they were to see their teachers, and how happy the teachers were to see their students.  Thanks so much, students and parents for the great posters, signs, chalk art, etc. that met us as we went by.  It has been a rough 2 months for us all, but this can be counted as a positive in the midst of a tough situation.  Keep smiling and  we hope to see you for Chromebook check-in.



SUPER Teacher/Faculty/Staff Parade Turnout Out

Submitted by kali.brown on Tue, 05/12/2020 - 14:24

That was awesome!  It was so fun to see students and their families watching for us as we drove by this afternoon for our Spanish Oaks Parade!  We slowly and carefully played "follow the leader" through the neighborhoods where teachers and faculty were able to wave and blow kisses (and bubbles!) to their students.  We LOVE and MISS you all ... it was wonderful to see your smiling faces!
