The teachers and staff members of White Oak Primary School are excited and ready for this school year. We will see you all bright and early in the morning. Our mantra this year is ‘WE BELIVE, WE CAN, BE THE DIFFERENCE.”
Parents may walk students in for the first few days. It is sometimes hard to leave your child on the first day, but the quicker and more positive you make the drop off, the better your child’s day will be.
Parents are not allowed to each lunch with students for the first few weeks, as we are working hard to establish routines in all of our spaces.
Car pick up line will be long. It takes a while to get our young students safely to their vehicle. Please be patient. After a week, we will have pick up down to under 20 minutes.
Thank you for sharing your precious children with us.
This school-year has flown by. We have many important things happening this week. We will continue our Read a Thon. Please help support our super readers. Friday, May 4th is Grandparent’s Day.

Thank you all for your outstanding support of our “Coins for Olivia” fundraiser. It was an honor to present Olivia and her family with over $4,700. Please join me in sending prayers and well wishes for Olivia and her upcoming smile surgery.
Happy 2018! I hope everyone enjoyed your Christmas break and recent snow days. The pictures I saw of our kiddos having fun in the snow were precious.

I want to take a moment to thank you for the blessing of your children. We have had an amazing start to the 17-18 school year. Students will begin bringing jackets to school soon. PLEASE make sure all jackets and coats are labeled. We have hundreds of lost jackets and coats each year.
Please also be aware of the requirement for students leaving school in an approved safety restraint “car/booster” seat. Notes were sent last week and reminders handed out this week. Beginning next week, school employees will not be allowed to place a student in a car, without a car seat, at car pick-up. Parents will be asked to pull out of line, and must load the child themselves. We appreciate your help in this matter. Keep checking this blog and our classroom blogs for important dates and information.
White Oak Primary will host a service learning project to benefit our colleagues and friends at Beaumont ISD. Next week, we will be collecting school supplies and books to deliver to BISD. The needs in Beaumont are vast. Our hope is to show the good people of Beaumont what a small school with a big heart can do for others. We will also collect supplies and items at the WO vs SH game on Sept. 15th.
Thank you for considering this opportunity.
