Weekly Message from the Principals

Dear SOK students and families,

One final thank you from all of us at Seven Oak - for your partnership in this work, for your patience as we figured things out each week, and for your perseverance in seeing this distance learning through until the end of the school year. Teachers, Administrators, and District Leaders will be working throughout the summer as we continue planning for the start of the 2020/2021 school year, and we will also be seeking input from all of you, so please be on the lookout for additional information coming from the district. In the meantime, have a safe and restorative summer and stay healthy!!


For all classes, students will receive either a "P" for pass, or a "G" for no grade; these final grades do not penalize any students. Final report cards will be processed and mailed out next week. 8th graders will also be receiving their promotion certificates with this mailing - congratulations to the class of 2024!!


The latest information from our yearbook publisher is that yearbooks are scheduled to be shipped out on June 24th. We will send communication out on our plan for distribution later this summer once we have confirmation that they have shipped. Thank you for your patience and understanding as we continue to make adjustments during this pandemic.


This is the update from our district: From June 15th - July 31st, all Seven Oak Middle School students will have access to content-specific, weekly online learning activities that will be done at home. A teacher per content level will hold office hours once a week for parents and students. On Monday, June 15th you will receive an email with SOK teachers’ contact information.

Starting August 3rd - August 21st, if state laws allow, students will attend summer school in person Monday - Friday. Please look for more information in the beginning of July on specifics for the in person summer school program.

Counselor's Corner

The world will say to you: We need to end racism.

Start by healing it where you can.

The world will say to you: How do we speak to bias and bigotry?

Start by having the conversation with your loved ones.

The world will say to you: There is too much hate.

Devote yourself to love. Love yourself so much that you can love others without barriers and without judgment.

-Cleo Wade

Your Seven Oak family is here for you. We understand that there is a lot going on in the world right now. Please reach out to someone you trust if you want to talk. You ALL have a voice. You ALL get to build the future into what you want it to be. You are ALL important. When hate is loud, love must not be silent.
