A Message from the Principal

     October was an exciting month at Grand Oaks. Thanks to the Parent Club, Grand Oaks students and their families had a great time at the Harvest Festival. The games were great, cakes were won, and as always Hogwarts and the caramel apples were a big hit. The students also had a great time showing off their costumes during the parade on October 31st.  It was great to see the creative outfits worn by many of our students. A special thanks to all of the families that contributed time, food or resources to the parties in the classrooms after the parade.

    November will be another full month at Grand Oaks. We will host our annual Title I Parent Night in room 14 at 6:30. Fingerfood will be served as you have the opportunity to learn about the extra academic services we provide to students at our school. Parent Club will meet on Thursday the 8th at 2:30 to discuss their next school adventure. That same evening parents of English language learners are invited to our DELAC potluck in the cafeteria starting at 6:00. Friday, November 9th will be our most active day of the month. It starts with our monthly awards assembly to celebrate individual and class awards. The school day will end with our annual Veteran’s Day assembly in the gym with a start time of 1:15.  Saturday the 10th is the Veteran’s Day Parade.  As in years past Grand Oaks will have a float in the parade.  Contact the office if your child wants to participate.  Monday the 12th will be a holiday observing Veteran’s Day.  Site Council meets on the 15th at 2:20.  Join the council if you want to hear about the progress of our school goals and would like to provide input.  Expect your child’s report card, as they will be handed out on the 16th at the end of the school day. Finally, the students and staff will earn a well-deserved break the week of Thanksgiving. Enjoy the time with family from Monday the 19th through Friday the 23rd. Students will return on Monday the 26th. Take any or all of the opportunities to see the great things we do at Grand Oaks.  We hope to see you at one or more of our November activities.
