Important Information Regarding Work Packets

In the midst of developing events, we are requesting that parents keep work packets at home until further notice. This alleviates the need for parents to get out, drive to the school, and deposit them in the grade-level boxes. This will also minimize unnecessary contact outside the house. Thank you for understanding, and mostly thank you for assisting our campus in every effort to continue to provide educational opportunities for students.

Boxes for Returning Completed Work

Parents and Guardians,

If you are able, we would love for you to return any completed packet work to us. There are boxes on a table at the entrance of the Intermediate Campus where you can place your child(ren)’s completed packets. We appreciate all the time and effort you have spent with your child(ren) while we are schooling at home. Teachers are excited to see all of the hard work they have done. Please make sure that all completed work is labeled with your child(ren)’s name together with their homeroom teacher’s name. Thank you so much!

Zoom Meeting at 6:00 pm

Due to several students having a Zoom meeting with their church tonight at 7:00pm, we have moved our Quadrilateral Scavenger Hunt up to 6:00pm.  Again, this is completely optional.

We miss our students so much, and we can’t wait to see them!

Covid-19 Updated Info Per Governor Directives

Covid-19 Update (March 31 st)

White Oak Community,
Today, Tuesday, March 31 st , Governor Abbott extended the school closure period for Texas school districts through May 4th. White Oak ISD will comply with this order. Tentatively students will return to school on Tuesday, May 5th. We will continue to follow future guidance from the Governor, CDC, T.E.A. ,County Judge etc. and will disseminate ASAP. White Oak ISD will continue with the ‘continuity of education’ plan both hard-copy and online for as long as is practical (through the end of May as needed). We are attempting to balance the need of keeping our students engaged in the learning process and the logistical, real-life issues facing parents and guardians in our community. White Oak class of 2020: Our heart is breaking for each of you and we understand that this is a difficult time. Please know that we are exploring every option that we can think of to try and give closure for y’all. At this point we are not sure if UIL activities can/will resume (currently shut down until May 4th) but we will update as we can. We WILL have some sort of graduation ceremony, although at this point we are not sure what that might look like….perhaps a virtual ceremony to begin with and an ‘actual’ ceremony at a later date. We want to give each of you your moment. We will update. The lunch/breakfast program will continue uninterrupted.Thank you for your continued support during these very challenging times. I know
it is difficult for everyone. Please know that White Oak ISD is trying to make the best decisions we can that benefit our kiddos and community during these very fluid and changing times. Please stay safe, healthy and continue to follow CDC recommendations.

Go Roughnecks!

Perimeter Online Resources

Below are some interactive videos for perimeter.  These are completely optional videos that go along with the student work packet from last week.

Think about what we do when we see the word – perimeter… We box in the RIM to remind us to use all of the sides of our polygon. We change the “t” into an addition symbol (+) to remind us add all of the sides

Private Facebook Group Link

Parents,

Mrs. Skeen and I are excited to try something new! Remember, this is new territory for ALL of us. We have seen great success with other teachers having a Facebook Group. With that being said, we have a PRIVATE Facebook group that we want you to join.

https://www.facebook.com/groups/2476633275980904/?ref=share

If you do not have Facebook, that is okay. We will be posting the same information on our Blogs, Google Classrooms, and Remind.

We are just trying to reach as many kiddos as we can. Again, please remember when we post activities and assignments this is not to be stressed over and does not need to be completed in one setting. If your child is reading 20 minutes a day and doing math 20-30 minutes a day, that is sufficient enough for us.

New packets were made yesterday and are now available for pickup at the school(this is two weeks worth of work). Feel free to email Mrs. Skeen and myself if you have any questions.
