50's Day in Kindergarten at Spanish Oaks

Submitted by sherri.peterson on Fri, 11/05/2021 - 13:05

We had a great time in Kindergarten celebrating our 50th day of school.  Everybody looked great dressed up in 50's style clothing. We did many counting activities, learned about some games, toys and music from the era, had root beer floats and ended the day doing a dance party.  Students learned The Twist, the Hand Jive and the Dishrag. We have loved all 50 days of school so far, and can't wait to learn more!

3rd Grade Wands

Submitted by steffani.waggoner on Thu, 10/21/2021 - 16:03

Our 3rd graders have been working hard to get their wands. This is our first group of the 2021-2022 school year.

When a student passes off their fast facts, (1-10) they earn a wand made by Mrs. Dimmick.

 We can’t wait to give out more wands! 

Annual Jog-a-Thon at Spanish Oaks

Submitted by sherri.peterson on Thu, 10/21/2021 - 13:28

We all had such a fun time yesterday at our annual Jog-a-Thon fund raiser!  The students were great sports and super runners, and we appreciate the support from parents and teachers.  We want to thank some local businesses who donated water, go-gurts and fruit snacks for the occasion.   We also appreciate Mr. Phelps being our MC and keeping us running . . . literally!

Just a reminder to please turn in the money you earned if you haven't done so.
