Oak Run News

October 2018

The first full month of school has come and gone and we are in full swing in the classroom, on the field, and on the court. Progress Reports were available online through txconnect on September 18th and Report Cards will be available soon on October 24th. Please be sure that you have a txconnect account so that you can access your students grades at all times and have access to progress and report cards. If your student needs to attend morning or afternoon tutoring, please check with the classroom teacher regarding tutorial times.

Attendance Update

If your child is absent, please send them in when they return with a note from the doctor or a hand written note from a parent, if they did not see the doctor. All notes should include the child's student id number.

Once again, we are working hard to achieve a 97% attendance rate this school year. So far, this is what our weekly attendance rates have been.

Week 1 - 98.79%

Week 2 - 98.01%

Week 3 - 97.51%

Week 4 - 96.74%

Week 5 - 97.84%

Overall - 97.53%

Out lowest week was the 4th week, but an overall of 97.53%. Way to go Unicorns!
