An Opportunity to Help While Eating Out

If making plans to eat out this Thursday, why not consider Bubba’s in Longview. This Thursday, May 4th, if you will mention White Oak Fundraiser, they will donate 10% of your total check to the White Oak Class of 2018 Prom. You do NOT need to bring in the flyer. Just mention it to your waiter or waitress to take advantage of this chance to help our students. Thank you for your support to our children.

Class Pictures

CLASS PICTURES will be Monday, May 1 for Intermediate classes and Tuesday, May 2 for Primary classes. An order envelope will be sent home this week. If you would like to order a picture of the entire class, please place $10 CASH ONLY in the envelope that was sent home and return to your student’s homeroom teacher by no later than Friday, May 5th.  If you do not have the envelope that was sent home, just place your student’s name and their homeroom teacher’s name on an envelope and place the cash inside. Students will receive an 8 x 10 class picture and a 5 x 7 fun shot with their $10 order.

WOPS Read-A-Thon Fundraiser

White Oak Primary students will be participating in a Read-A-Thon fundraiser beginning tomorrow, Wednesday, April 26th and will continue through Friday, May 5th. Each student is coming home today with an instruction sheet for this fundraiser. Please take time to read over this sheet, set up your child’s personal Read-A-Thon page online, and start asking for donations from family and close friends. Thank you for your help in making this fundraiser a success for your child and our school!

Earth Day Tree Planting with Schneider Electric

In honor of Earth Day, our Kindergarten and First Grade students planted a tree this morning near the pavilion in our Nature Center. We want to thank Schneider Electric for spending time with our students, sharing valuable information. We appreciate their help and generosity for making this possible! We would also like to thank the students from our FFA program for coming and participating with our students.

White Oak Elementary Field Days Need Your Help!

The Physical Education department will host Field Days for each grade level from Kindergarten through Fifth grades. In order for this to be a successful and fun event for your children, we will need a few items. We will need these items as soon as possible to know exactly how to organize the event.

The items needed are:
14 bungee cords (12″-14″ long with plastic coated hooks)
3 large-XL tarps (to BORROW to use for a Slip and Slide)
15 large sponges (car wash type sponges)
5-10 cases of water

Please let Coach Underwood know if you are able to supply any of these items. You can contact her at [email protected] or 903.291.2106.
