Oakwood Intermediate PTO Newsletter

December 2014, Vol. 4


Dear Oakwood Parents & Guardians,

This has been quite a busy fall semester at Oakwood! Students have been engaged in their learning which is evident by all the activity in the classrooms! To see what has been going on be sure to check out the Oakwood Intermediate School Facebook Page, YouTube Channel, Twitter, Instagram and School Website.

The holiday season is upon us and during this time of year it can be easy for students to want to take a break from school. Please help us by encouraging your students to show up to school ready and willing to learn. We will have lots of fun to end the semester but learning is still the priority! Thank you for trusting us with the education of your children.

Have an outstanding Oakwood Day!


Jeff Mann, Oakwood Principal

Fall fundraising

Fundraising update: So far we have raised close to $10,000 to purchase our red cats!

Thank you to everyone who worked the Oakwood parking lot during the Texas A&M football games. We raised close to $5000 to bring our fall fundraising total close to $10,000!

The No Frills Fundraiser continues all year! The goal of this fundraiser is to raise enough money to purchase Red Cat microphone systems for classrooms that don't currently have one. Any amount is accepted and appreciated, but keep in mind that if every family gives $10, we will reach our goal. Please place money in an envelope labeled PTO No Frills Fundraiser and turn into the school’s front office. Checks can be made payable to Oakwood PTO. Thanks for your contribution!
