Welcome Kindergarteners!!! It was a great first week with students and staff. The year has started well and this is the first week for kindergarten classes. Early release Wednesday starts this week.
We have our ice cream social this Friday from 5:30-7:00. Come join us on the playground for a yummy ice cream bar and to visit with other Oak Grove families. We will also have the Honda dealership here with some of their vehicles to test drive. They give the school a $10 donation for every parent that drives a car. You only have to sign a waver and there is no follow up pressure from them. It is a quick, easy fundraiser for our school.
Volunteers have an important role in making our school community a success and our students the best they can be. If you are interested in being a parent volunteer, please let us know. Even an hour or two a week can make a big difference! Every volunteer must become familiar with the district volunteer policies and must complete a criminal history verification application prior to engaging in any volunteer activity. Please go to http://www.albany.k12.or.us to complete the application. Select “Parents” tab, scroll down to Volunteer Application Form. If you completed the background check last year you do not need to do another one this year because your approval is good for two years. If you didn’t make it to the volunteer orientation last night you can stop by the office for a packet of information and the volunteer waiver. I will also be doing another volunteer training on October 14, 2014 at 6:30 in the library.
It is going to be a great year for all of us at Oak Grove Elementary School.
Together we… Challenge, Advance skills, Responsibly involve, & Enable success.
Schools, families, and community: Working together to prepare students for our future.
