Six Flags Read to Succeed!

Parents,

Today your child will be coming home with the Six Flags Read to Succeed Reading Log.  This is an exciting program Mrs. Rock has registered the students to participate in.  All you and your child need to do is read, read, read and keep track of the amount of time read.  When your child reaches 6 hours, he/she will return the form to me.  At the end of the year, each child who completed the form will receive a Six Flags ticket!!

Food Drive

Our annual Food Drive runs from November 6-10th.  The food contributed will aid the White Oak TAP (Temporary Assistance Program).  Currently this food bank is in need of nonperishable items including meat products, canned fruit, pasta, spaghetti sauce, macaroni & cheese, soup, beans, and rice. They have plenty of vegetable products at this time.

The grade level bringing the most food will win extra recess as well as a visit from Joe Roughneck!!  Please help us stock this food bank as the holidays are fast approaching!!
