Honoring Our Service Men and Women

On this Veterans Day, the students and staff of White Oak Intermediate would like to honor those relatives who have served or remain in active service in any branch of our country’s military. By participating in this campus-wide project, we hope to bring attention to how many veterans are a part of our lives. In doing so, Mrs. Rock’s goal is to raise awareness and appreciation for the dedication of these individuals who have served or are serving our country.

In order to do this, we would like for students to work with their parents to write the names of those in their families who have served (past or present), and if possible, what branch and how they are related. This information will be transferred to large posters and hung in the main entrance by Friday for all to read.

How many total veterans do you think will be listed? We will see on Friday.

Flashlight Friday

Tomorrow we will end the nine weeks by having a Flashlight Friday. Kids will read with flashlights. I have flashlights that kids can use. (If your child wants to bring their own flashlight, that is fine). If your child would like to bring a book from home or bring a device with a book online they are reading, they may do so with a parent permission. This is TOTALLY optional! The student will have to show me the book they are reading online. NO GAMES…just books! Also, students will be able to use their school computer to get on Epic to read online. No blankets, pillows, stuffed animals, or snacks…just books (or devices with books on them). Happy Reading!!!

Week of September 28-October 2

A new spelling list is coming home today. Students should have the words listed in their planners. Test will be next Friday, October 9th.

Spelling List:

We will be watching the movie, Because of Winn Dixie, on Tuesday and Wednesday. “Party Snacks” will be on Tuesday. Your child must have note returned or a note in the planner stating he/she does have or does not have permission to watch the movie and eat the “Party Snacks.”
