Oak Grove Elementary
The Home Stretch!
As we look at the final two-and-a-half months of the school year, the pace of activities accelerates! It seems as if every week has a major school event, field trip, or assembly associated with it. Besides the normal school activities, our extracurricular events make the spring an exciting time for Oak Grove students and their families.
One important event coming up for our school community is the Parent-Teacher Club meeting on Tuesday, April 9th at 7:00 PM. Superintendent Maria Delapoer will be in attendance, along with School Board members, to discuss potential options in dealing with our space issues. She will be seeking feedback and suggestions regarding this issue. Please plan on attending this important meeting.
Other April events of note include the “Frog and Toad” musical performance by our primary grades on Thursday the 11th, followed by “Jackie Robinson Week”, April 15 – 19. Besides a hot dog BBQ and other events during the week, the culminating activity will be a baseball-themed Bingo Night on Friday the 19th. Be sure to wear your favorite team’s jersey or hat and join us for a night of fun! In addition to these events, we will also be hosting the school’s first “Fine Arts Fair”, a celebration of student artwork and talents! This event will be held on Tuesday the 16th.
Besides these school-wide events, there are many exciting activities going on in individual classrooms as well. Please don’t hesitate to contact your child’s teacher regarding volunteering, as these extra activities sometimes require additional supervision or help in other ways.
As always, your help is greatly appreciated in providing our students with a valuable and fun educational experience. I value your trust and support as we continue to watch our kids grow into young people of strength and character.
Together we… Challenge, Advance skills, Responsibly involve, & Enable success.
Schools, families, and community: Working together to prepare students for our future.
