Oka ~ Week of December 2-8

Hopefully you’ve had a great week and enjoyed your Thanksgiving holiday.  As we get ready to resume school on Monday, December 2nd, there are a few highlights of important information. 


Volunteer Policy Update

Sent previously, but attached again to this week’s email, is a letter detailing important information on soon-to-take-effect changes.  Please review the attached letter carefully, as it contains additional next steps, toward furthering student safety.  For those individuals who are at a Level 2 Volunteer, or who would potentially be chaperoning a field trip, the information contained is extremely important.  I would highly encourage you take advantage of this clearance opportunity on December 4th.


Chipotle Dine-Out: Monday, December 2

Start the week off with a great Oka Dine-Out!  This can be one of the most successful dine-outs of the entire year, because Chipotle donates 33% of sales back to Oka PTO, during the hours of 4:00 – 8:00 pm.  Chipotle is located at 18951 Brookhurst, just north of Garfield.


Fundraiser Reminders & Information

Thanks to everyone who participated in the See’s Candy Fundraiser.  As a sign of appreciation, all participating families will receive a coupon for a Free Mini Golf / Go-Cart Ride at Boomers.

Be sure to get your order in early to ensure holiday delivery.  The LOVE Reusable Bag sale will happen between December 4-18.  Their company is local and will ship direct to you!

With so much going on this final month of 2019, it’s easy to get caught up in the holiday craziness.  Please help everyone, especially students, arrive and depart from each school day on-time, by driving safely around campus, and in parking lots.  Please do not park on red curbs, or block driveways.  This is a season where we have a great opportunity to model patience and kindness to everyone around us!    

Thanks, and as always…Go Wolfpack!
