Meet Ms. Ikerd, Math Interventionist

Mrs. Sarah Ikerd is in her 4th year at Oak Grove; she's taught 2nd grade and 5th grade. Currently, Mrs. Ikerd is the Math Interventionist and gets to work with students from Kindergarten to 5th grade. She loves helping students work on challenges in math and build their confidence. When she's not at school, Mrs. Ikerd spends a lot of her time as the director of local and foreign outreach at her church in Mission. Her passions include reading, baking, and spending time with her Yorkipoo, Cooper.

PTA Trash Bag Fundraiser

PTA kicked off the Oak Grove trash bag fundraiser this week! We sent home the trash bag order forms and the collection envelopes on Wed., Sept. 22. Trash bag rolls are $12 each, and the office will be collecting order forms and money through Wed., Oct. 6. Please note that the money collection envelope says “World’s Finest Chocolate” on it, but we are selling ONLY trash bag rolls for this fundraiser. PTA will hold the chocolate bar fundraiser in the Spring. If you need another trash bag order form sent home, just contact the office.

The PTA membership drive is still going on through Oct. 1—you still have time to join the PTA and help your child’s class win an ice cream, cupcake, or cookie party! The top 3 classrooms who collect the most new memberships during this month will win a PTA treat party. If you would like a PTA membership form to be sent home with your child, please contact the office ASAP. Thank you for supporting our kids, staff, and PTA! 💚

The deadline to order Oak Grove spirit wear through the PTA has passed. We should be receiving the T-shirts and hoodies in just a few weeks. Once again, thank you so much for all you do to support our school.
