Teacher Appreciation Week at Spanish Oaks

Submitted by leslie.loftin on
Last week the PTA sponsored Teacher Appreciation week and, wow, did the teachers get spoiled! The theme was a country western theme, “Our Teachers are the Best in the West.” Each teacher had a “wanted” sign outside of their door that was decorated by room parents. There was a waffle bar breakfast that kicked the week off on Monday morning. The students were involved in a basketball “shoot out” and dancing in the gym.
