Continue to work with your student during these spring months! Our school year is flying by and we still have a lot to learn!

Late Student Pick Up:

Parents, If you arrive after 3:45 to pick up your child, you must come into the office and sign your child out with Mrs. Horton. The pick up person must be an authorized adult, please do not send in students to pick up siblings. Make sure you have your ID with you for late pick up! Thanks for your help!

Counselor's Corner :

Our character trait for February is Respect. One way to practice respect is accept the differences in others and treat them with dignity. When your children talk about conflicts with siblings or other students, help them think of respectful ways to solve those conflicts in the future.

From Our Registrar:

As of Wednesday morning, we only have about 100 students that have not been re-enrolled. Tomorrow is the last day to Re-Enroll!!!! Please DO NOT miss this deadline.

Your child’s spot will not be held if forms are not submitted in SchoolMint by February 17, 2017.

Contact Judy Frazier if you need any assistance.

Breakfast:

Parent's please remember that breakfast time is 7:25 am - 7:40 am. If you would like for your child to eat breakfast at school please have them at school before 7:40 am. We want to ensure that each student has enough time to eat his/her breakfast before starting class.

In-N-Out Cookout Fundraiser

Life School Red Oak is proud to present the In-N-Out Cookout Fundraiser which will take place February 21 at 5:00 pm in front of student building (preceding Science Night activities). The In-N-Out truck will be preparing and serving food for all ticket-holders. Tickets can be purchased in the atrium from 7:45-8:10 am tomorrow (Friday). You must have a ticket to receive a meal and tickets must be purchased in advance. Each ticket costs $5 and buys a meal consisting of a hamburger or cheeseburger, a bag of chips, and a drink.
