Oak Grove Elementary School

September 6-20, 2019 Newsletter

NOTE FROM PRINCIPAL GRAHAM

Thank you all for your adaptability as we were out of school on Thursday and with rescheduling our Orientation night. It is so important to make sure we are all safe. We hope that you can join us Tuesday night, Sept. 10th, for our Title One Meeting and Grade 1-5 Orientation starting at 6 PM in the cafeteria.


Our school is now complete as we welcomed our PK students on Wednesday. It is wonderful to have all of our classrooms filled with students. We received book bags this week filled with supplies for our students from community supporters. We are so appreciative of how much the community cares about Oak Grove. Please know if your child is ever in need of school supplies, we are here to help.


I hope you have an enjoyable weekend. Don’t forget to take time each day to have your child read or read to them. The power of a book builds the mind. Make it a part of your daily routine.

Staying Healthy Tip

Start healthy routines.

Do you need to rest? Are you full? These are questions some people ignore when they don't take the time to listen to their own bodies. One of the quickest ways for someone to overeat is to simply not think about if they are actually hungry or bored. An easy way to improve this is to set healthy routines and stick to them. Examples could be to make bedtime that you stick to, put a limit on your screen time, and get outside and play every day for a certain amount of time.
