Spanish Oaks Tries Out Their New Safety Clipboards

Submitted by sherri.peterson on

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!

My Experience with Project Teddy Bear

By: Elena Cotton-Betteridge

"My experience with project teddy bear was a good one.  We went around to every class in the school collecting stuffed animals.  Then we would put them in a plastic bag.  We did this for a week and a half.  I knew we were doing something good, especially when I heard we collected over 500 teddy bears!"

Submitted by sherri.peterson on

Mrs. Rosenvall's fourth grade class worked hard this month researching, organizing and writing up presentations on a country of their choice and how they celebrate Christmas.  They also created their own displays to share with their parents and the student body.  They did an excellent job presenting their information.  Nice job fourth grade!
