Today our Kindergarten students had a visit from one of our local firefighters, Mr. Matt Taylor. We loved learning about his job and what he does as a firefighter in our community. We also learned what we could do as Kindergarten students to help him with his job. We can have an escape plan with our families in case of a fire and practice what to do with them. We even dressed up Mrs. Robinson in a fireman's suit to show that firemen are not scary. Then we got to go outside and sit in the cool firetruck. Thank you, Mr. Taylor!
We had another great group of students filling others' buckets this past week! Spanish Oaks is full of students that are working hard to help their classmates and peers feel good and have a great time here at school. We love to see the great things going on. Congratulations this week's Bucket Fillers!

On Friday, September 19, 2014, football players from Maple Mountain High School took time out of their busy school schedules to come and read to the students of Spanish Oaks Elementary.
