Dear White Oak Families, 


That's a wrap! Fun celebrations, a special 5th Grade Promotion Ceremony and an exciting Field Day - it was a memorable last week of our 2022-2023 school year!


We appreciate everyone's patience and flexibility as we dealt with multiple schedule changes to Field Day as the result of the air quality forecast. Despite the challenges, our specialist team led by Coach Brady were able to come through with a great event for all Explorers! 


This will be our last newsletter of the school year. Look for some brief summer updates before our weekly communication resumes in August.


Quick Notes/Reminders:

  • If your child was not at school on Friday, teachers have placed student materials in the main office. Families can stop by the office from 9am-3pm for pickup. Student materials will be held for a week. Afterward, only report cards & student devices will be kept until August.   



Summer Fun


From Mrs. Overton:

Let’s go out and play this summer!! Here are some great ideas of places to visit and things to do over the summer months. Most are free or relatively inexpensive. If you have other great ideas, email so she can add them!
