November/December 2018
 
Dear Parents/Guardians and Community Members,
November is a month of thanks, and so, on behalf of the staff at Oaklea, we’d like to thank each family for their support. This has been a great year and we appreciate the hard work that goes into helping your children be successful. I would also like to thank our entire staff who have been putting so much time and positive energy into our students to be the best they can be. 
 
First Trimester is coming to a close November 30th, so encourage your child to get all work completed and turned in. There will be no school Monday, December 3rd and Tuesday December 4th as teachers work on final grades and professional development. We will once again be having the Winter Giving Store December 12th through the 14th. It will be open before and after school, and during lunch. This is a great opportunity for students to use earned Tiger Stipes to “purchase” items!
 
An enormous thank you to all the volunteers for health screening in October. This valuable health information would be very difficult to collect without your help. We ended the month with Red Ribbon Week, a drug awareness and prevention activity. To cap off the awareness we encouraged students to think about natural ‘highs’ and had fun with a TEAM lip sync contest. Congratulations to all of our students who participated, it was a blast! We are currently in the middle of our fall fundraiser. These funds provide extra opportunities for our students. For more information please feel free to contact the school or discuss with your child.
Winter sports is gearing up and we are still accepting sign-ups for Winter Cheer, 7th and 8th grade girls Basketball, and Wrestling. Any 6th grade girls interested in playing for the 7th grade team please stop by the office for paperwork. 7th and 8th grade boys’ basketball sign-ups are in the office. Their season will start on January 7th, 2019. Please come to the front office for sign up information and get registered to compete as a Tiger! 
 
We hope you and your family have a safe and enjoyable holiday season. Oaklea staff knows that during the holidays some students may need a little extra and we are here to support them. Please contact us if there are needs you feel we could address and support. We welcome feedback so we can improve and we love when we hear we are doing a great job too. Happy Holidays to all our Oaklea Families !
 
Sincerely,
Justin Corey
