There will be a Student Holiday on Friday, October 19th. Teachers will be in meetings and training during the day. Campus offices will be closed.
We will see all of you back on Monday, October 22nd.
Do you know what “ghosting” is? Have you heard of “subtweeting”? Common Sense Media gives you the break-down on the definition of those terms and others we should become familiar with in order to help our children protect themselves when dealing with social media.

The White Oak Roughnecks will play Mineola at home this Friday night. The game will begin at 7:30.
Students will be out of school this Friday, so NO Pep Rally.
Wednesday was a very special day. The White Oak Volunteer Fire Department visited the elementary campus to talk to the students in PreK-5th grade about the importance of fire safety. They brought a fire truck, inflatable house, and an information bag with fire hat for each student. How blessed we are to live in a city with the volunteers we have. Thank you so much for investing your lives to protect the citizens of White Oak. Click on the slideshow below to see pictures of the occasion and find good safety tips.
All students entering grades 3, 4, and 5 were challenged to complete 30 sessions of Xtra Math over the summer to improve fact fluency. These students completed, kept track of their progress, and return their Summer Math Challenge form to school in August. They each received a Math Challenge t-shirt, an ice cream treat, and an extra VIP recess.
Congratulations to all who participated. We are so proud of you!
