It was an exciting day at Spanish Oaks as past U.S. Presidents and First Ladies arrived to mingle for Tea at the White House. Students in 5th grade have been studying presidents and first ladies through a variety of activities in the classroom. Students then dressed up as their chosen president or first lady and presented facts for their parents and grandparents. Their parents' knowledge was tested as they competed for top prize in who's who among American presidents and first ladies using the clues given by students. Hot cocoa and cookies were served to complete the awesome event.
President Abraham Lincoln was able to take some time out of his very busy schedule to come and meet our morning Kindergarten students. We had the opportunity to see first hand how tall he really was. President Lincoln told us all about himself. We also learned about how his hat helped him to stay organized in his early career in law. Ask your kindergarten student to tell you all about our important visitor.

The students at Spanish Oaks Elementary love Mrs. Brown, so they are motivated to read when they have a chance to earn a party with her! The more a student reads, the more reading tickets they earn. All the reading tickets in the school are put into a big bin. One student from each class is drawn from the bin to have a reading celebration party with Mrs. Brown! Students got to frost and decorate heart-shaped cookies, and you can tell by their faces that they had a blast!
We are spoiled here at Spanish Oaks Elementary! I have never heard of another school PTA that goes through as much time and effort to make their teachers feel appreciated. This year's theme for Teacher Appreciation was "United in Love" and boy did we feel loved! The faculty room has been decorated to match the theme, and we have been eating ourselves to death with all the sandwhiches, desserts, and snacks! Thank you to Lacey Nielsen, Dawnyeil West, Sara Liechty, Cheree Lockwood, and Camie Mercado for spoiling us!
