The "Secret Service" was out in full force this month here at our school. Each class, decked out in our secret service glasses, did an act of service for another class. They were hoping not to be caught or recognized! It has spread cheer throughout the school, and has been a great learning opportunity for the givers. Great job, students and teachers!

We found a few students in the halls that we couldn't miss, and the office staff was remembered. And don't forget our police officer either. He has been good as well! No one was caught on the naughty list here at Spanish Oaks!!

It was touching to see pictures of soldiers doing their duties, but also loving and protecting the children in the countries where they served. We had the opportunity to hear taps being played on a bugle as the flags were retired, and got
