White Oak Education Foundation will once again host the Monster Truck Nationals on Saturday, September 13th. The event will take place at Lone Star Speedway in Liberty City with starting time at 7:00 pm. Details will be posted soon. Get Ready! It’s Coming!
White Oak ISD would like to inform parents and employees that because of shortened high school class periods, the White Oak High School Roughneck Band will be conducting morning marching practice on the blacktop parking lot located directly behind the Middle School Building. Please consider rerouting your morning drop-off path by coming down White Oak Road and using Roughneck Drive that passes by the high school football stadium. This is a one-way street, so be sure to allow a little extra time to accommodate any initial congestion.
As always, we are considering the safety of our children first. Thank you for your understanding.
The beginning of the school year is quickly approaching. Most of our students, new and returning, have already registered and have received placement. You are sure to see some new faces this year in our staffing. Below you will find the names and faces of our entire intermediate staff. We invite our parents and students to click on the images and visit each staff member’s blog page. Go ahead and get to know us. We will get to know and love each of you very soon. Welcome to White Oak Intermediate.
If you missed new student or returning student registration, we have arranged one additional day for you to get your child ready for the first day of school. Both primary and intermediate secretaries will be available on August 13th from 2:00 pm to 6:00 pm to take the necessary documentation to enroll your child(ren).
Placement will not be made for students who have not registered. We want all students to have the opportunity to Meet the Teacher on August 21st and to be able to walk into their new 2014-2015 classroom on the first day of school. So let’s get every student registered!
Registration for RETURNING students ONLY will be Wednesday, August 6th, and Thursday, August 7th from 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. Parents who have completed the Required Online Registration will need to bring Proof of Residence. Acceptable documents include a current lease or a current utility bill in the parent’s name. Students will receive a placement letter once Proof of Residence is provided and Online Registration is completed.
Summer is coming to a close and children are really getting bored by now. The recent rainy weather has not helped to relieve that feeling. The next time you hear, “There’s nothing to do around here!”, I’d like to challenge you to build with Chrome. Lego has partnered with Chrome to give children the opportunity to build online – train to become a master builder – if you will. The site starts them off with basic skill challenges and progressively moves through more difficult tasks. There are two options: (1) Build Academy Challenges and (2) Start Building for real beginners.
Before the building begins, you may want to Explore the Builds of others. They are marked on a world map with an icon that indicates what kind of build the student has created. When I zoomed into White Oak, I did not see one single icon. I would like to challenge you to put White Oak on the map with your amazing creations. JOIN ME AT BUILD WITH CHROME.
NEVER PASS UP A CHANCE TO BE AMAZING!
In a recent email that I received from Lisa Mullins at Region 7, she had this to share:
“The Texas Education Agency recently sent a communication regarding new mathematics documents posted to Project Share. The site has new side-by-side documents for Algebra I, Algebra II, and Geometry that provide a comparison between the current TEKS and the revised TEKS. The documents are located at http://projectsharetexas.org/resource/revised-mathematics-teks-side-side-teks-comparison.”
You may want to tag this page as these may be beneficial when editing math curriculum documents.
Boardmaker Achieve is a program that was invaluable last year as we were constructing classroom assessments for some of our students. More than 200,000 teachers come here to share their creations. Many of these activities are tied directly to the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills. Take the time to search through the shared lessons here and then adapt them to your own classroom needs.
