One of our newest teachers is also our youngest teacher, but on Saturday, Miss Kelley will turn one year older. Victoria Kelley is a third-grade math teacher. She isn’t new to White Oak, however, because last year she spent the year with one of our fourth-grade math teachers completing her student teaching. Our students are fortunate to have such a skilled teacher who is passionate about what she does. So, today we want to be sure to tell you that we appreciate all that you do, and we wish you an early Happy Birthday.
It’s no secret that Laura Odom loves beagles, and now, it’s no secret that Mrs. Odom is having a birthday today. She teaches math to our third-graders and is an asset to our entire campus. We want to take today to wish Mrs. Odom a very Happy Birthday. May all your wishes come true!

White Oak Intermediate School has decided to join together with our high school to dedicate tomorrow as a “Blue-Out for Brock” day. Students and staff who wish to participate may wear blue tomorrow to show your support for this courageous little boy and his family. You are also invited and encouraged to take pictures and post them to the “Battle for Brock” Facebook page along with an encouraging word or message of support from WOISD. Hashtags being used include #battleforbrock and #prayforbrock.
Brock’s mom is Paige Austin Gumm, who was a former White Oak student. Let us join together in the spirit of brotherhood and support for our neighbors, and former Roughneck. Being able to support others in a time of need is a large part of who we are and what we represent at WOISD.
It’s battle time, so get your blue on tomorrow!
(Blue shirts, pants, socks, hats, shoes are encouraged – no blue hair)
Students will be bringing home Progress Reports today. Reminder: Parents can login to Skyward at any time to view the progress of their children throughout the year.
