Tardy Smarties at Spanish Oaks

We are having a great time with our Tardy Smartie "on time" celebration activity.  On random days, Mrs. Brown calls out a number over the intercom during morning announcements.  If the student who has been assigned that number in each classroom is in their seat and ready for the day, they get to come down to the office and get a Smartie from the secretaries.  Here are last weeks Tardy Smarties!

February Reading Celebration


Students receive reading tickets for completing their nightly independent reading.  The more minutes a student reads, the more reading tickets they earn.  The more reading tickets a student earns, the higher chance they have of getting their reading ticket drawn to have a reading celebration with Mrs. Brown.  This month's reading celebration was getting the opportunity to decorate heart-shaped sugar cookies with Mrs. Brown.  The students had so much fun!

Kindergarten Wedding of Miss Q and Mr. U

Kimberly Mellor

Kindergarten students had a fun filled day participating in the wedding of Miss Q and Mr U.   

Together these two letters will forever make the sound of /kw/ in words such as … quick, quiet, quilt, and quack.   They will continue to work side by side making words together for as long as words can be made.     Congratulations to the happy couple Miss Q and Mr U.

We are so excited to participate in National School Breakfast Week on March 5th–March 9th!

Mark your calendar for National School Breakfast Week!  "This year’s theme, 'I Heart School Breakfast,' encourages parents, students, and school officials to get social over school breakfast.  Speaking a language kids understand, we’re ready to show-and-tell all the benefits of a healthy school breakfast." 

Parents, if you are receiving free and reduced lunch, you ALSO get free and reduced breakfast!  When you use these services, it benefits our school.
