Message from Dean of Students, Jenn Laserna
Dear Oak Tree Families,
We wanted to update everyone on our current letter grade for our school, we have maintained our B rating, and continue to work hard as a school to strive to get the A rating.
The Gilbert Days Parade will be on Saturday, November 18, starting at 8:30 a.m. We will have the Student Council, Principal Advisory Committee, and Cheer Squad members walking in the parade. We would love to see our Eagles there supporting us as we walk the parade.
We have our next S.O.A.R. assembly on Tuesday, November 21. It will be a fun-filled assembly, with Mr. Lunt & Mrs. Laserna getting slimed as a reward for the recent P.T.O. fundraiser. It is from 10-11 a.m. If you are available to attend, we would love to have you join us.
We want to encourage our families to get to school on time. We are starting a new program to incentivize students starting the last week of November and going through the end of the school year for students to be at school on time. Once a month on a random date, every student who is in their classroom by 8:10 a.m. will get a ticket that will be entered into a monthly drawing for a prize. It can be any day, so please increase your child's chances to attend on time daily. S.O.A.R. to Excellent Attendance!
Thank you for your continued support in helping our Eagles Stand Tall and S.O.A.R. High.
