Dear Oak Ridge Families,
Today, our elementary students enjoyed visiting the FFA petting zoo where they got to pet and learn about horses, cows, rabbits, chickens, sheep, donkeys, and other animals. Thank you Mr. Thomas and our FFA students for organizing this opportunity for us!
Our 3rd grade students are studying a unit on the Civil War. This week, Mrs. Jones' class had a guest speaker come in and share artifacts and information about the Civil War.
Read Across America Week will be February 27th through March 3rd. We will "Paws" for reading this week. Check out the flyer from Mrs. Elam below for information about each day's events as well as links to a reading of the book of the day.
Come and join the fun on February 27th @ 5:30PM for the ORES Title 1 Family Fun Night! We will have food, games, and prizes as well as tips and tricks for helping your child with reading and math. Students that have a parent sign in will be entered into a drawing for a $50 Walmart gift card. Two gift cards will be given away.
Saturday, March 4th, Oak Ridge will be hosting a volleyball tournament. Elementary staff will be working the concession stand to raise money for a Ga Ga Ball court on the playground. Come out and enjoy a game and something from the concession stand.
If you or your child need assistance with school supplies or other resources, please let me know as we have access to resources to help you.
Have a restful weekend with family!
