A Message from Mrs. Friedman…..
Hopefully October will bring a little cooler weather and maybe a decrease in humidity so we can feel like we too are experiencing Fall!
We have a packed calendar this month with many events that we hope you will be able to participate in. We have our SAC meeting coming up on Wednesday the 14th, so please mark your calendar and join us in the Media Center following dismissal for this important meeting.
We have already begun planning for this year’s Harvest Drive to lend support and holiday cheer to our families most in need. We once again will be collecting non-perishable food along with other helpful Thanksgiving Dinner items such as napkins and metal pans. Please help us by starting to collect a few items in your groceries each week so that when we begin our drive, you will be prepared to help us help others in need. This year, our Safety Patrol club will also be helping our cause by encouraging students to bring in Dollars for Turkeys! All of the dollars collected will go toward purchasing turkeys to be given out as the main course for each Thanksgiving basket. For every dollar a child donates, they will get to decorate and put their name on a Turkey feather to help build our giant school Turkey. I am very optimistic that we will be able to collect enough dollars to provide every family with a basket of food and a turkey. Thanks in advance for your help with this special project.
As in the past, many members of our chorus will be chosen to participate in the Olsen Middle School Multicultural Explosion. Selected chorus members will get to go to Olsen Middle on a field trip and perform several multi-ethnic songs. This is always a fun event that we all look forward to!
Welcome Back 2015/16
Good afternoon Oakridge families. Here is this week’s exciting event at Oakridge Elementary: Wednesday, Sept. 30th, will be individual Fall Picture Day. The Picture Packet envelope went home with your child last week. Please avoid your child wearing green this day. There are four packets and several backgrounds to choose from. There is also a special Designer Series with purchase of any package. Please send your child to school on Wednesday with the picture envelope and payment. You may pay by check made payable to Strawbridge Studios, by exact cash amount, or online at STRAWBRIDGE.NET. If you are in need of a picture envelope please stop by the front office and pick one up. Thank you and we look forward to collaborating with you for another great week of learning at Oakridge Elementary School!
