SCHOOL CLOSING

Following an administrative meeting this afternoon, it has been decided that ALL White Oak District campuses (high school, middle school, intermediate school, and primary school) will be closed Thursday, December 14th, and Friday, December 15th. This decision was made in the best interest and health considerations for our students, faculty, and staff members.

There will be NO outside activities of any kind (i.e. Select Volleyball, choir, Boys and Girls Club, etc.). NO ONE will be allowed in the building during these four days.

We will return to school on Monday, December 18th, and we will follow the original schedule that has been set in place for next week. Christmas Parties will remain on the same days and at the same times. Early Release times for Tuesday and Wednesday will remain at 12:15 for Intermediate students.

Because all outside activities have been canceled, our students will NOT be caroling at the local banks. Instead, the select choir will perform on Tuesday morning at 8:45, and parents are invited to attend and may check out their students at the end of the performance.

We look forward to seeing a healthier YOU on Monday

Turkey Diary Writing assignment November 7-16, 2017

Students will write a diary on a template I will be  giving them on Tuesday for the next 10 days. They will write from the Turkey’s point of view (1st person).  They will name their turkey on Tuesday and   begin  writing about  daily activities the turkey “does with the student’s family.”  The writing will be completed at home and should not take but a few minutes nightly.

This has been a fun activity that  my previous classes have loved!  We will share the stories on November17.  (that is the funniest part)

The stories should be creative. I will be be checking  the diaries daily for an entry. At the end of the 10 days I will be checking for correct sentence structure, punctuation, and spelling.

I think your kids will enjoy this activity!
