The Town of Oak Ridge - Light up the Night

The town of Oak Ridge is hosting a community event this coming Saturday night at the Oak Ridge Town Park. Several of your students are planning to set up luminaries (during the daylight hours) along the walking path and then that evening everyone in the town/community will come out to walk the beautiful lit pathway, sign carols, and enjoy a beautiful night together. Our entire staff is invited if you would like to bring your family. Fliers were sent home with all students last week and there is also a flyer in our Peachjar account.

Upcoming Assessments

As you plan for the upcoming weeks please keep in mind that when we return from Winter Break, the week of Jan 5th-8th will be the week for the 2nd quarter Writing Assessment. If needed you can also take the writing assessment into the following week :). Also that same week, on Jan. 6th, the K-5 DIBELS and K-3 TRC Reading Assessment Window will open.
