Mrs. Calabrese Presents...Student Art Work
We know your schedules were already filled with other events and obligations, so we would like to say thank you to all of our parents and guardians who took the time to meet with their child's teacher. Strengthening the relationship between teacher and parent is a great way to help your child succeed at school.

K-Kids Helping Families in Need for Thanksgiving
K-Kids are asking for donations of nonperishable Thanksgiving-related foods such as cans of vegetables, boxes of mashed potatoes, boxes of stuffing, etc. Our food drive will run from October 21 through November 15. We are also looking for donations of Publix gift cards. The top two classes with the most donations will earn an extra recess.
All donations will first be used to help our own families at Oasis. If your family is in need of assistance this holiday season, please use this link and complete the form. All information is confidential. Any leftover donations will be sent to the Cape Coral Caring Center.
Thank you for your help! If you have any questions, please e-mail the K-Kids Faculty Sponsor Mr. Zedd at Joshua.Zedd@capecharterschools.org at any time.
Your child's teacher will reach out to you with more details if you are volunteering for the parade/party.
If your family does not celebrate Halloween or you do not want your child in the parade, please let your child's teacher know and we will have a different activity for your child to do during the parade/party.
Please be mindful of others when helping your child select his/her Halloween costume. Out of consideration to our younger and more sensitive students, costumes worn to school should NOT be overly scary and pretend/make believe weapons should NOT be brought to school. Thank you for your cooperation.
A Note from Mrs. Gamboa...
The OES Pumpking Patch is ready and awaiting your Storybook Pumpkins. We need your help! Decorate a pumpkin to look like one of your favorite book characters and bring it to the library to plant in our Storybook Pumpkin Patch! If you would like to participate, please read the informative flyer in the Friday Flyer for more details.
Please carefully read the letter in Friday Flyers, regarding AR Fun Day. If you have any questions, please reach out to Mrs. Gamboa or your child's teacher.
Thank you to all of our volunteers who helped with the Book Fair! :)
