Welcome back to school! I hope that everyone had a restful summer and took the opportunity to get outdoors and enjoy time with the family.
I want to thank our students, staff, parents and community for such a warm welcome to the White Oak community. In the short time that I have been here, I quickly learned why White Oak is such an amazing school. Our team of teachers is fantastic, our community values the school and has a level of support that is unparalleled in the district, and our kids are amazing. I have been in classrooms everyday and the behavior and manners of our kids has been particularly eye opening for me. Great job teachers and parents!
Another observation of mine is the number of dedicated individuals who put their hard work and passion into making our kids successful. A big thank you should go out to our specialists, instructional assistants, office staff and custodial team. It truly takes a village.
We have been enjoying spirited morning assemblies before school, and I want to encourage parents to join us. It is a great way to fire our kids up, get out important information to our families, and start the day as “Team White Oak.” It has been one of the highlights of being here, so I plan on continuing the tradition of an upbeat, loud morning welcome. I want to hear that roar!
In addition to joining us for our morning assembly, I want to encourage you to volunteer in your student’s class, support the PFC that provides so much for our campus and kids, and follow us on Twitter. You can receive important information and fun pictures from our campus by following our Twitter feed.
