Joe Roughneck visit

Third grade had a visit from Joe Roughneck on Wednesday, and they were SO excited.  Our Project Based Learning this year going to be researching the rich history and traditions of White Oak. My homeroom will research traditions. I will be sending home a letter asking for any help family members could share with  the class about the traditions of both the community and the school traditions. Not having grown up here, I do not have any background knowledge on this subject and would LOVE any  input you could share.  The third grade will work on the PBL and display their work the week of Homecoming here at the school.

PICTURES Thursday September 20

All students will have their photo taken Thursday whether you desire to purchase them or not. The pictures will be used for the yearbook. Forms were sent home on Thursday.

Learning Objectives for September 4-7, 2018

We are continuing to work on the same TEKS that we have for the  first 2 weeks of school, and continuing to build on our understanding of them.  We have been working on Summary, Sequence, and Plot ( 3.8. A-C). We also have reviewed text features of Fiction (characters, setting, problem , solution, plot).

In Grammar, we are working on nouns, verbs, articles, adjectives, and  adverbs. We also are working on  identifying  the subject and predicate in sentences.  We are using Multisensory Grammar, an interactive language program.  Your child will begin bringing home some color-coded papers that we use to learn parts of speech.  (TEKS: 3.22A. i, ii,iii, iv,v;  3.22 B)

In Writing, we  are learning cursive writing and will continue working on this throughout the year.  Also, we are working on edit  our writing, as we become better writers. (TEKS: 3.17A-D)

School will be closed Monday, September 3rd. Enjoy the time with your families celebrating Labor Day. Talk to your children about Labor Day and what it means.

Labor Day is celebrated on the first Monday in September. It’s a day dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers. The holiday credits the contributions of the working class to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country.

Labor Day became an official national holiday in 1894. This holiday is usually celebrated with summer activities. Elementary teachers use this holiday to introduce the concept of Community Helpers to small children. Everyone plays a role or works a job that supports their community.

What role do you play in your community?

Correction to Student Pickup: Amendment regarding Walkers

Student Pickup: Amendment Regarding Walkers

Walkers

Amendment to Student Handbook as of 8-2-17

Beginning the 2017-2018 school year, and continuing into the 2018-2019 school year, we will not have the typical “walker” line as we had in the past. For safety reasons, students will NO LONGER walk to the MS/HS parking lot to be picked up.

If we have students that walk home, they will ride a bus to the Middle School and will be released to walk from there.

If parents have students at various campuses, the Intermediate student will need to be picked up through the car pick-up line, then parents may park at a different location to pick up their MS/HS student.

Employee’s children will ride the bus to the MS where a designee can meet them for pick up.

PLEASE READ THE STUDENT HANDBOOK for all school procedures and concerns.

Intermediate Student Drop-Off Procedures/ PLEASE THE ENTIRE POST AND VIEW VIDEO

FIRST POINT: EXPECT VERY LONG LINES AND DELAYS when dropping off and picking up your child.

SECOND POINT: EXPECT LIMITED PARKING SPACES due to construction and improvements being made to our school. This has shifted the parking areas for other campuses to our area.

THIRD POINT: NO parents are allowed upstairs on the intermediate campus. Meet the Teacher will be on August 14th from 4:30-5:30.  If you cannot attend due to your work, a Parent Orientation night will be scheduled soon. School Supplies will be taken in the gym and placed on a cart to be delivered to your child’s classroom once students have been released to go upstairs.

FOURTH POINT: If you have not yet registered your child, there will be no class assignment made until BOTH Online and In-Person documents are completed. Parents will have to wait until teachers and classes have been dismissed from the gym to their classrooms before there will be staff members available to proceed with late registration. PLEASE KNOW: This may not take place until around 8:10 a.m.


Here are the student drop-off procedures that parents will need to review and know before the first day of school on Thursday morning, August 16th. There are lanes that specify BUSES ONLY, and there are lanes designated for CARS. Please watch the video below for how to use these.  Parents with Primary students ONLY will need to drop 0ff primary students on the Lower Level of the building which is the Primary Campus. Parents may not drop off students and allow them to walk across Roughneck Drive due to safety issues and construction congestion. Students may not be dropped off in the Intermediate School parking lot and allowed to walk across the parking lot to the sidewalk. This is very dangerous for your child. Students should never be dropped off earlier than 7:15. There is no school personnel available to supervise students at that time, and they will be completely unattended. Doors to the building open at 7:30.

THIS VIDEO WILL TELL YOU EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT DROP-OFF.
