Spanish Oaks Tries Out Their New Safety Clipboards

Spanish Oaks has a super, on-the-ball Safety Protocol Leader, Miss Lybbert!  She has been busy getting our school whipped into shape, which we so appreciate!  Each teacher has a new clipboard that has protocol for each type of drill that is practiced throughout the school year.  It also has a class roster and red, yellow and green cards to be used to let our administration know if they are okay or in need of assistance.  Our first fire drill using the cards was slick!  A special thanks to Miss Lybbert!

Hogwarts Sorting in Fourth Grade at Spanish Oaks

The fourth grade students are officially witches and wizards after being sorted into their very own Hogwarts houses to start off the new year.  Students will work together as teams over the next term to earn house points, win Quidditch matches and most importantly ... do a lot of reading!  The students have looked forward to this for the whole year and are so excited to finally be in Hogwarts.  What a great way to celebrate reading!
