Welcome to 2015! The school year is moving right along and we ended 2014 by happily supporting and assisting many families with holiday gifts that were donated by the staff. Our in-house Giving Tree activity was a wonderful opportunity for us to continue the generosity that began with our Harvest Drive in November. We had two great months of giving that provided warm and positive feelings for both those giving and those receiving. We are also very grateful to our friends from the City of Hollywood who provided gifts for six of our families. This was a great help to our Giving Tree Project.
In addition to the giving that we organized and carried out as a school, we also were fortunate to have received some wonderful donations from the Hollywood Women’s Club. Two children were elated to receive brand new bicycles for the holidays! In addition, 6 teachers received donations to purchase classroom supplies. The teachers had applied online to www.AdoptaClassroom.com which is a website that seeks to match donors to teachers in need of supplies. The Hollywood Women’s Club made a decision to adopt Oakridge Elementary as their school to support and they adopted every teacher from Oakridge who had applied to the website. The giving didn’t stop there either! The Women’s Club also donated several boxes of school supplies and backpacks. The teachers were so excited to receive the supplies, and the backpacks will come in very handy as backpacks start to wear out and need to be replaced throughout the school year. We could not be more thankful to the Hollywood Women’s Club for their extensive generosity and look forward to a continued partnership with this wonderful community organization.
Hopefully, you have noticed that we have a brand new marquee! We were so fortunate to be able to receive an upgraded marquee with more lines and smaller letters so that we will be able to communicate more clearly. We are enjoying having the ability to write things
