This year at Spanish Oaks we are focusing on being "Bucket Fillers"! Each of us has an invisible bucket. It is constantly emptied or filled, depending on what others say or do to us. When our bucket is full, we feel great. When it’s empty, we feel awful … At Spanish Oaks, we fill buckets!
Everyone was very excited, and a little nervous for the first day of school in 1st grade, even the teachers. As all of the students gathered on the carpet for a story, one new friend raised his hand ...
Teacher: "Yes, do you have a question?"
Student: "Teacher, I was just wondering ... Is there a reason why your shoes don't match?"
Welcome back to school, everyone!
Ahoy, Matey! The theme for our third grade this year is "Pirates". Today we talked about how pirates would make ropes from individual strings, and how we are stronger as we learn and work together. Every student made their own rope bracelet as a reminder. Yo Ho Ho ... it's going to be a great year in 3rd grade!
To kick off this year’s PTA focus of “Only With Teamwork Are We Able to Accomplish Our 'Bucket-Filling' Goals”, on Friday, September 5, at 7:30 p.m. The Aristocats will be shown! Families are invited to bring blankets, pillows, chairs, and treats and join us outside for our movie under the stars!
