Greetings Oakman Families,
We hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving surrounded by all your loved ones. We are thankful for our Oakman family and the time we spend together.
In the next few weeks before the holiday vacation, it is crucial that all students continue working towards their goals, read everyday and put forth their best effort during each school day. Reading daily has countless benefits and is a great habit to form. It should now be a regular part of every student’s daily routine and can be tailored to fit students’ needs and interests. Please reach out to any teacher if you need help with tips or resources.
Monday: Back to School/ Dress Warm
Wednesday: 3rd grade field trip to Lansing
Thursday: Celebration Assembly
Friday: 4th grade math parent meeting

This weekend, our Oakman Lions First LEGO League team competed in one of the state events for Later Elementary in Monroe County ISD. Our team showed resilience and true team spirit during the competition. We are so proud of our students and THANKFUL to all the parents who helped support the team. Kudos to our coaches Mrs. McMahon, Ms. Puente, and Ms. Mosed for guiding our student to problem solve and collaborate. Also special thanks to Susan Hicks, engineer, for helping and supporting the team through programming to complete the required missions, and to Ms. Logel for being on-site to support the team. WAY TO GO OAKMAN SCHOOL!

On Saturday, our robotics team spent the day competing against other school teams. Our students presented their project, “Lunar Bio-Dome” and completed several missions. We are very proud of the hard work, time and dedication that the robotics team has put in. We also thank the robotics team teachers, parents and principal for their dedication and continued support throughout the process.
Congratulations to Oakman students for raising 1,705 cans and non-perishable food items in only a week and a half! All items will be picked up by HYPE and distributed to families in need.

Also, thank you to Mrs. Gartha’s awesome 5th grade class who gave up their gym time to collect, count and pack the items!
Way to go Oakman Lions!
