A Message from Mr. Symank

I trust that everyone had wonderful and restful Thanksgiving Break with friends and family. I know that we all enjoyed our time off here at Oakwood and are looking forward to the remainder of the holiday season. In just a few weeks we will begin our winter break and conclude what has been a wonderful first semester.

On Friday, December 14, we will have our last hat day of the fall semester. Students who pay $1 will be permitted to wear hats. All proceeds will go to the Brazos Valley Food Bank.

Our last day of the fall semester is Friday, December 21. This is an early release day and all students will be dismissed at 1:30 PM. Buses will run their normal routes beginning at 1:40. This day also marks the end of our 3rd 6 Weeks. Report cards will not be sent home until we return from the break. Our first day back is Monday, January 8, 2018.

We’ve had a wonderful first semester and are looking forward to the upcoming spring semester. We wish everyone a wonderful and fulfilling winter break. Thank you all so much for allowing us the opportunity to work with your amazing children. If you have any questions or concerns regarding your child, please contact your child’s teacher or the front office.
