October Students of the Month

Congratulations to the students featured here who demonstrated good Core Values in our Bucketfiller Program. They were “Caught Doing Something Good” by a teacher or staff member and were honored for this behavior at an assembly in the beginning of November. You should be very proud if your child is here!

Congratulations to the parents who received a certificate of completion from Ms. Farroukh of ACCESS for completing the Parent Talk Workshop.
Ms. Farroukh spoke of constructive strategies to use when talking with our children. There are specific ways to respond to a child that will bring you the results you seek as a parent. It was a great workshop for all.

Cancer Fundraiser

Hello Oakman Families. I know it’s short notice but there is a fundraiser Sunday, November 7th to benefit one of our bus driver’s family. Jan Blicharski’s husband is seriously ill with cancer and it has hit the brain. The family is struggling financially.

A spaghetti dinner is planned at the Southgate VFW this coming Sunday. I know many of you cannot make it, but if you could make any donation to me in the office, I will give it to the family.

See Ms. Rose, secretary in the office.

Thank you
