As we have started a new month, there are many important things happening on campus, as well as a number of calendar reminders. First off, a HUGE THANK YOU to everyone who helped donate used clothing, sheets, towels, and other items during our recent clothing drive. Because of your efforts, you helped the Oka PTO raise over $635. A big shout-out of appreciation to Jessica Reed, who helped organize, store, and transport all of these items. Collectively, over one ton of material was collected and donated!! Below are highlighted events happening this month on campus:
Primary Grades Parent & Student Math Night – Save the Date: Thursday, February 21 @ 6:00pm. More information will be coming, but this evening will give parents more resources and information about how to better support their children at home. Although this event is focused more toward students in Grades Kindergarten – 2nd, all Oka families are welcome to attend.
For any families who have a student starting Kindergarten in September 2019, please join us on Thursday, February 28 @ 8:30am for Kindergarten Round-Up. If you have a neighbor or friend, please share this information and invite them to Kindergarten Round-Up. This is where registration information will be shared for new incoming students.
On Friday, February 15, all students are encouraged to participate in supporting a greater awareness for International Childhood Cancer Day. In our efforts to raise engagement and funding to support childhood cancer research, all schools in FVSD are kindly asking everyone to wear yellow or gold to school on this day, in order to show support for the students and families who have experienced the damaging impact of childhood cancer. In addition, we hope that everyone in the FVSD community will consider donating $1 to combat this disease through the support of childhood cancer research. All proceeds will be donated directly to the Irvine-based Pediatric Cancer Research Foundation.
The following are non-student days this month at Oka:
- Friday, February 8 = FVSD Staff Development Day
- Monday, February 11 = Lincoln's Birthday Observance
- Monday, February 18 = President's Day Observance
Also, Wednesday, February 20 - Friday, February 22 are all Modified Days, for Spring Parent-Teacher Conferences. Please plan accordingly.
Thanks for your continued support of the Oka Wolfpack!
