Calling all Teachers and Staff.......

There is going to be a new section to the Monday Memo, but I need your help! The new section is going to be called Small Fry Banter. We need funny quotes by the kids to put into the newsletter. Of course we don't need any names associated with them, all anonymous please. But it would be nice to know which building the quotes were coming from. Please e-mail me (nmeyer@oakfarmschool.com) with any over hears that might have struck your funny bone and you want to share. Can't wait to hear what some of these funny kids are saying!!

Small Fry Banter.......

A Moment with Macy....

Gala Video - Aaron Dorhing will be on campus this Thursday (Jan 7) to continue gathering footage for the Gala Video. Macy will be joining him - we hope to get recordings from parents, a few teachers, and some Primary, Upper & Middle School students. This process does not take long at all, and we will do all that we can to not be a distraction.

Track coach needed

Oak Farm is looking for a track coach. We would love it to be a faculty member to co-coach with Debbie Kovets and wondering if it is you? It is a paid position working with athletes you may already have a relationship with. Practices and meets are typically after school on Tuesdays and Thursdays during the short season of mid-March to mid-May.
