(more pictures available)

Do you know of a student at Spanish Oaks who really "gets it" when it comes to exceptional behavior?  We do!!  We chose five students who were nominated by a faculty member or peer for going the extra mile ... we would like to recognize them for having a positive impact on our school.  They are students that have made a special effort by performing the remarkable behavior(s) of:  Being Kind ...Showing Respect ... Working Hard.  

Our faculty and student body cheered them on this morning as they "lapped" the school.  They also had a great time being treated like the Heroes they are at a special luncheon with Mrs. Brown.  Our Excellent Explorer Award winners are:  Jack Elmore (4th), "who works very hard and is nice and has been taking initiative and being optimistic."  Brisa Lopez (1st), who "exemplifies kindness, respect and a hard work ethic.  She is friendly and helpgul towards her classmates and shows respect every day."  Colton Johnson (6th), "is always kind and helpful to others.  He is the most respectful student and is constantly doing his best work."  Charly Finlinson (K), "is a great example to their class.  She is a great helper, she is kind to others, and shows great respect to her friends in the classroom."  Henry Massimini (4th), "has been an exceptional fourth grader at school by showing hard work and setting a great example to others around him."  

We hope to have many more Excellent Explorer Award winners throughout the year!  Congratulations, students!
