December is upon us and as we wrap up 2014, it’s a good time to reflect on all of the wonderful things going on at Oakridge. First, I once again want to thank everyone for your support of our General Obligation Bond Issue. There was overwhelming support for this initiative and we are scheduled to receive many wonderful upgrades to our campus and our technology, which we are very grateful for.
I also want to send out a giant thank you to our PTA, Dr. Wanza, members of our Harvest Drive/Holiday Giving Committee: Ms. Patterson-Ritter, Ms. Offret, Mrs. Furlan, Mrs. Hanooman, Mrs. Bacon, and Gregory Furlan. Thanks to all of you for your donations which provided many families with generous Thanksgiving Baskets. Now that Thanksgiving has passed, our very special staff is embarking on collecting gifts and books to present to our children in need of holiday gifts. If you are interested in making a donation to our Giving Tree Project, please contact our Guidance Counselor, Dr. Wanza.
This is the time of year when we are very excited to announce our staff members of the year. They have been voted for by their peers. Congratulations to Mrs. Oakley, Pre-K Teacher, who is our Teacher of the Year and congratulations to Mr. Wynter, our Computer Technology Specialist, who is our School Related Employee of the Year. They both will be honored at a very special awards dinner in the spring.
Best wishes to all of you for a restful and happy holiday season. I hope that the winter break will provide you with opportunities to spend time with those you love, doing things you greatly enjoy. We are all looking forward to the fun learning experiences we will have in 2015!
