The 5th Grade at Spanish Oaks hosted a Tea at the White House. The guests were the students dressed as different United States presidents and first ladies throughout history. Parents were also invited, and they even participated. Students gave clues about their person, and then parents tried to guess which person the students represented. Hot chocolate and cookies were served. This was the culmination of a research unit that the 5th graders did on their chosen president or first lady.

The fifth grade at Spanish Oaks celebrated a Colonial Day as an end to their studies of Colonial times. On that day, they came dressed as colonial children, and some students even brought their lunches in a knapsack. They participated in many learning activities such as writing with a feather pen, learning lessons from colonial classrooms, making butter, constructing a Jacob’s Ladder and playing many fun colonial games. Students gained a great appreciation for colonial life.
