Thursday, October 28th, White Oak 5th graders will attend the children’s musical concert, Into the Woods by Stephen Sondheim, hosted by ETBU in Marshall, Texas. The performance is scheduled to begin at 10:00. Afterward all six classes will picnic at our Nature Center Pavilion.
On this day teachers have asked that students wear a maroon White Oak shirt and bring a sack lunch. Please make sure your child’s name is on his/her lunch items and drinks.
Because this is Red Ribbon Week and the theme for the day is “Put a Cap on Drugs”, students may wear their favorite hat or cap. However, students will not be allowed to wear the hat or cap in the auditorium at ETBU.
NOTE: PERMISSION SLIPS MUST BE SIGNED AND RETURNED WITH YOUR CHILD.
