Little Free Library
"Take a book. Return a book." That is the motto of the Little Free Library Organization. Members of our Interact Club created a Little Free Library in the nearby laundry mat, hoping to encourage and support our community in reading more books. It wasn't long after the books were organized that two children visiting the laundry mat with their mother, quickly found a book to enjoy! We look forward to more children and adults enjoying a good book.
Our 4th and 5th grade students competed in our annual Math Mixer. The students worked in teams and rotated through four stations to solve mathematical problems. The teams earned points for cooperation, manners, and accuracy. The top scoring team from each class earned personal trophies and the highest performing class earned the perpetual trophy. Congratulations to Mrs. Conklin and Ms. Hymes’ classes!
Spanos Interact Club
The newest Interact Club in the valley’s Rotary District was recognized on May 5th when Rotary District Governor Marvin Williamson presented the Certificate of Organization from Rotary International to Spanos Elementary Interact Faculty Advisor Kathleen Moody. Principal, Danielle Valtierra, joined us. Mr. Williamson was joined by Judy Lovett, District Interact Chair. The club at Spanos Elementary became the fifty third Interact Club in the District. Spanos Interact is sponsored by the Rotary Club of Stockton.
Interact is Rotary for young people between the ages of 12 and 18. They gather at a school or community center to socialize and to accomplish projects for their school, community and internationally. They learn how to be leaders, make presentations, plan and work together to accomplish projects.
Their projects this year were tutoring K-3 students, collecting box tops to raise money for playground equipment, book levelling, dimes for leukemia and a purple pinkie project to raise money to eliminate polio internationally.
School Hours 7:40 a.m. to 1:40 p.m.
Office Hours 7:15a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
Please continue to collect and turn in your box tops to your child's teacher.
All money earned will go towards purchasing playground equipment.
