We are pleased to announce that White Oak School has been named an Honor Roll School By the California Business for Education Excellence (CBEE) for demonstrating consistently high levels of student academic achievement.

Principally Speaking,
It is with bitter-sweet sentiments that I write this, my last newsletter for White Oak.  It was my very great pleasure to have been your interim-principal while Dr. Medler had this time with her sweet little baby.  She will return on April 14th, which means I have two more weeks to enjoy my time here.
I have been so impressed with the spirit and behavior of the White Oak students and staff! There have been minimal discipline issues and I attribute that to three things. Students are courteous and respectful of their friends and their teachers.  This allows the teachers to spend their time on valuable learning experiences for all. Students are definitely ready for the 21st century as they have worked with technology, collaborated with their peers, and been exposed to a wealth of critical thinking activities.  Having parents who support their children and the school is the final piece that makes White Oak remarkable. Thank you so much for the hours you spend on a weekly basis, for special projects, and for the PFC. It does make a difference, not only for your child, but for the school as a whole.
I can’t end this without a special thanks too, to the support staff.  Cecilia, Val, and Clara in the office; our specialists; Joseph; all of our instructional assistants; campus supervisors; and extra support staff are invaluable as members of the White Oak team. Together they do make a huge difference!
Thanks for such a positive experience. It was definitely worth coming out of retirement. Luckily, the friends I have not seen and the grandchildren I have not visited for three months, will help ease me back into my old routine. But I will miss you all, and wish you all the best at White Oak!
