Dear White Oak Families, 

Hope everyone enjoyed a beautiful weekend of warm weather, with the bonus extra hour of sleep! As a reminder, we have several schedule changes this week ahead: 

  • Tuesday, 11/8 - No School - Election Day
  • Thursday, 11/10 - Early Release at 1:45
  • Friday, 11/11 - No School - Veteran's Day


This week is National School Psychology Week and we would like to recognize our wonderful school psychologist, Mrs. Camilla Tungate.



As the school psychologist at White Oak Elementary School, I provide support to students and the wider WOE community in order to promote academic, social-emotional, and behavioral health for all students. I do this by consulting and collaborating with the interventionists, special education team, and student and instructional support personnel (SISP) team. While I am assigned to two schools, Monday and Wednesday are my dedicated days at WOE. I am here to support you and your students!
