We enjoyed a presentation by our GAINS specialist Laura Brockbank today. She came, dressed in full Scottish attire, and taught us about how the bagpipes work, then played several songs for us to enjoy. It was so much fun, and we enjoyed having her with us. Thanks, Laura!
We have another great bunch of students chosen to sign Mr. Murray's hat this past week. Thanks, students, for a job well done!
We know some students in our school who "really get it" when it comes to exceptional behavior! We would like to recognize them for having a positive impact on our school. They have each made a special effort by performing remarkable behavior. Congratulations to the following students:
What an amazing group of students this week! They were chosen out of their classes for having a great week. They got to sign Mr. Murray's cowboy hat for the "True Gritters" of the Week.
The third grade classes were able to watch the Perseverance rover land on Mars. They were so excited to see it descend onto the planet and especially when they saw the footage from the rover on the surface.
Our PTA is excited to invite our school community to join us in celebrating Teacher Appreciation Week Feb. 22-26.
We are thrilled to have such wonderful teachers and staff at Spanish Oaks.
Many have asked about favorite teacher items so we are making a list available for you to access. Click on the following link.
Kindergarten students attended the wedding of Miss Q and Mr. U today! All of the guests looked oh so fancy in their nicest tiaras and extra handsome in their big bow ties. These two lovely letters are forever joined together and will remain side by side in most words for years to come.This fun day is to help remind us of the spelling rule that letter Q is almost always followed by letter U in words such as queen, quick and quiet.
Our song today was "Two Heads Are Better Than One", and our quotes were: "Kindness is more than a feeling, it's a way of life," and "The world is full of kind people, if you can't find one, be one." Our challenge was to do an anonymous act of kindness to a member of your family over the weekend. We hope some great things are done. Our picture today is of a group of students caught being kind to a staff member that wanted them recognized for their help. Thanks, staff and students, for a great week full of kindness.
Here is just a sampling of the great Valentine boxes that came in today throughout the school. We have some very creative students and parents! Happy Valentines Day!
Today started off with the Friendship Song, then our quotes were "Kindness is seeing the best in others when they cannot see it in themselves," and "Kindness is a gift everyone can afford to give." Great thoughts to remember! Our challenge was to ask someone about their day and really listen to their answer. For the activity each student is recognizing and thanking another student for an act of kindness. They are putting them on a strip of paper to make a school wide chain of good deeds. A big thanks to Mr.
