News / Reminders

Williams and Bray - Oakland Elementary

Note to Parents

Although we have 1 week of school before the Winter Holiday Break begins, there is a lot going on at Oakland and in our classrooms.

*** Please read carefully and respond accordingly. ***

CAR RIDER

This only applies to students that reside in the section of Waterside Estates near Oakland, NOT near Kroger.


Beginning TUESDAY, DECEMBER 16th, all CAR RIDERS that reside in Waterside Estates will use the new car rider driveway near the Waterside Estates pool. A map showing how to enter and exit the new driveway will be emailed to you from administration.


Because of the new driveway, there will no longer be a "parent walker" dismissal option. All parent walkers will have to either switch to Waterside Estates car rider or solo walker.


*ACTION REQUIRED* - If your child is a parent walker or an occasional car rider (and you reside in Waterside Estates near Oakland, NOT near Kroger), please email your child's homeroom teacher so we can create a new light blue car rider tag and dismissal card.

POLAR EXPRESS DAY

All students will watch the movie: POLAR EXPRESS on Tuesday, December 16th. Students are allowed to wear pajamas to school. Mrs. Bray and Mrs. Williams will provide a light snack for students during the movie. Please do not send any special treats, pillows or blankets with your child.

WINTER HOLIDAY PARTY

The Winter Holiday Party will be held Friday, December 19th, 8:15 am -9:30 am.


*ACTION REQUIRED* - PTO is asking for all students to contribute $2 to pay for snacks for the party. Please send the money by Wednesday, December 17th.


*ACTION REQUIRED* - If you will be attending the party with your child, please send your child's homeroom teacher an email by Wednesday, December 17th, so your visitor's badge can be pre-printed and ready when you arrive. Please note, siblings (including infants) will not be allowed to attend the party.


***MRS. BRAY'S HOMEROOM CLASS IS IN NEED OF A ROOM MOM.***

If you are willing and available to help out with the Winter/Valentine party,

please contact her via email ASAP.
