Keeping Our Students SAFE

* Our GOAL:  To keep our students safe!

Please review our Drop OFF and Pick UP Safe School Protocol.  Students are instructed to use our crosswalk(s) at all times.  Thank you for NOT waving them across the street to where you may be parked.

Pick UP/Drop OFF in all three (3) school entrance(s):

All Drop OFF/Pick UP area(s) are ONE WAY ONLY:  Enter from the East ... Exit from the West.  Drop OFF/Pick UP zones are to:  Drop OFF students and Pick UP students.  Please do NOT park cars in the Drop OFF/Pick UP area(s).  If you need to enter the school, you need to please park in a parking space.  Thank you for pulling all the way forward in each area to keep traffic flowing.

"Walking Student" Crossing

Students walking/biking to school will turn RIGHT on the corner and walk along the east fence-line.  Our Crossing Guard will be stationed on the south-east sidewalk corner.  Students will cross, with the help of a teacher, in the designated/identified "crosswalk" from the fence-line, across the parking lot "crosswalk", to the south-east corner of the front of our school.  Students can then go either to the back of the school (bikes, rear entrance, playground, etc.) or enter through our front automatic doors.

At the end of the day:  Students who exit the front of the building to walk/bike home will cross with the teacher from the south-east corner of the front of the school, walk across the parking lot "crosswalk", and walk up the east fence-line to the Crossing Guard.  They will then turn left and head safely home.

Reading Celebration with Mrs. Brown

We had some elaborately decorated Christmas trees once our reading reward winners finished with Mrs. Brown yesterday.  The students had a great time and actually got a little bit of frosting and candy on the trees (the rest ended up in mouths).  A special thanks to Aubrey Smith for her hard work and creativity in putting this activity together!  Keep on reading, students!

Orchestra Lunchtime Serenade


Students, faculty and staff were treated to a special lunchtime performance by our amazing 6th grade orchestra, directed by Russell Hansen and accompanied by Laurie Dallin.  Students enjoyed chicken nuggets and taco soup while "visions" of Jingle Bells and Here Comes Santa Claus played in the background.  Our orchestra students have been working all year long to master their instruments, and their efforts were well received by their audience of hungry students.  Thank you, musicians, for sharing your talents ... and for a most enjoyable dining experience!

Spanish Oaks Explore the Arts for Christmas

Our student-body enjoyed watching our Dance EXTRA students perform folk dances from different countries.   Some of the audience even got to join in and give the dances a try.  A big thanks to Mr. Crockett for his time and hard work.

Today we also enjoyed our school orchestra, who serenaded the student-body while they ate lunch.  They did a great job!  Thank you to Mr. Hansen for the great job he does with our sixth graders.
