Thank You, Sam!

Last week, the fifth grade honed in on some of their math strategies. One that they learned was PEMDAS. This math acronym, PEMDAS, is common. It stands for Parentheses, Exponents, Multiplication, Division, Addition, Subtraction. PEMDAS is often expanded to the mnemonic “Please Excuse My Dear Aunt Sally”. Teachers used pizza as a reward for showing strategies (which is in the shape of a pizza slice.)

All of our fifth-grade students would like to send very special thank you to Sam Hassan at Moe’s Pizza for donating the pizza for 5th grade. He does so much to support education and, especially, this community. Thank you, Mr. Hassan.

Why You Need a Car Tag for Car Pickup

 

Parents, you MUST HAVE a White Oak Car Tag hanging in your vehicle in order to pick up your child(ren) via the Car Pickup Line. This procedure is for safety and efficiency.  The car tag ensures the teacher calling for your student you have the authority to pick up that student. The car tag allows the teachers standing on the sidewalk with your child the ability to direct them safely and efficiently to your vehicle. If you do not have a car tag or if you have lost your car tag, please do not get in the pick up line.  Park and come inside the building to pick up another tag before getting in the pick up line. If you get in the pick up line without the required car tag, the staff person calling cars will ask you to park and go inside to pick up a tag.  They are available in the office. Thank you for working together with us to keep our boys and girls safe.

Helping Harvey Victims

Thank you all for supporting our fundraiser for Beaumont ISD last week.  After Friday night, we had a truck and a large utility bin filled with supplies for Beaumont schools. We also had several monetary donations and a $500 gift card to Walmart. We have been specifically paired with Jones Clark Elementary in BISD.  It is an elementary of approximately 750 students.  We will continue to remain in touch with Jones Clark Elementary through emails, Skyping, and other forms of technology.

Thank you to our community and our students who helped to make this endeavor successful.
