Mr. Billie Receives New Vest for Assisting in Cross Walk Each Day


Mr. Billie, our custodian, spends a lot of his time out on duty in the crosswalk.  He is always so willing to help take some of this load off of the faculty and staff.  Because of his great service, we "gifted" him with a new hot pink vest so he would stay safe!  Can't miss him now :).  Give him a wave and tell him hello when you pass through the crosswalk.  Thanks, Mr. Billie!

Arts EXTRA Kicks Off at Spanish Oaks

We had an amazing first day of Arts EXTRA today at Spanish Oaks!  We planned on accommodating 60 registrations, but ended up with ... 92!  Thank you to our awesome teachers who insisted on not turning anyone away, and adjusted their materials and instruction to welcome all 92 students!  It is going to be a super experience for all!

"We are excited to offer Arts EXTRA again this year at Spanish Oaks!  We have a variety of teachers that will be teaching these classes for students in 1st-6th grades. 

The dates and times for our class will be:  Tuesday & Thursday afternoons from 3:15 PM-4:15 PM, starting September 24th and running through October 10th.  Classes will be held throughout the school, but students will meet each day in the front vestibule between 6th and 2nd grades.  There will be a Parent Show on Thursday, October 10th from 4:00-4:15 PM."



Third Grade Field Trip

Mrs. Dimmick

Our third graders had so much fun on our field trip today. We went to the Bean Museum and attend a live animal show. Then we went to Glen Canyon Park for a picnic. We walked up to Bridal Veil Falls. On our walk back to the park the weather went from sprinkling a little to a down pour. The kids were troopers and we had a great time.

Fun Way to Read!

Mrs. Stewart

Mrs. Stewart’s class is practicing becoming even better readers by DYAD reading.  Each of them has a partner and they read together to become more fluent readers and to build their vocabulary. They really enjoy getting to buddy read with a partner and become more fluent readers.
