School Board Appreciation Month

January is School Board Recognition Month and Red Oak ISD is joining other districts across the state to thank these community volunteers for their commitment and contributions to our public schools. We have included a video below to share more information about the role of the School Board. Red Oak Elementary wants to specifically thank John Hawkins for his commitment to the students, staff and parents of Red Oak ISD. While we thank all of our board members for their service, we will be honoring John Hawkins this year for his service on the school board since 2004.

World's Finest Chocolate PTA Fundraiser

PTA's World's Finest Chocolate Fundraiser will kick off on January 28th. Students will bring home permission slips to sell chocolate. PTA does so much for our student's and staff. This fundraiser will be used towards our Spring Field Trips. We are so thankful to have amazing parent support for our students and staff. Thank you!

Did you know..

At Red Oak Elementary we have a lot of amazing things happening. We want to take some time this semester to share some pieces that we are proud of each and every day.

  • ROE has a Virtues in Progress (VIP) Leadership group that meets on Wednesday mornings. The VIP group leads in spreading positivity and promoting kindness.
  • Our ROE PTA provides support for field trips and volunteers at Book Fairs and around our campus throughout the year. The PTA is run by parent volunteers and they are eager to add to their numbers. It's never too late to join.
  • Attendance matters! We need every student here every day.

School Communication Plan

We just want to remind you if there is a possibility of bad weather that could result in the delay of the start of school or closing school, we will use the following forms of communication to notify you no later than 6:00 am:

  • Text messages and automated phone calls

  • ROISD App notification

  • Parent and staff emails

  • Facebook and Twitter

  • District and campus websites

  • Local media (please note that we cannot guarantee the accuracy of all media postings, so refer to

Therefore, there is no need to call your child’s campus to see if we are having school. If you do not receive any notification, we will be having school and starting at the regularly scheduled time. For this reason, it is important to make sure that your school has the most up-to-date and accurate contact information.
