NaNoWriMo Showcase

You are invited to our NaNoWriMo Showcase!

Our students spent November and December writing their own novels, and we want to showcase their hard work.  Students will have the opportunity to share an excerpt from their novel with you during their English class on the following days:

8th grade- January 10

7th grade- January 11

6th grade- January 12

Notes came home today.  Please ask your child what time they have English so you know what time to meet in the Middle School Library.  We hope to see you there!  If you have any questions, please email your child’s English teacher.

White Oak ISD Traffic Pattern

Beginning Monday, December 18, 2017
There will be a new traffic pattern at around the High School to accommodate a construction zone in the north student parking lot (in red). Please take the time to review the map included in the message and make not of the following:
  • There will be no through traffic in front of the high school and parking in that area will be for teachers only. (in yellow)
  • Areas available for student parking are outlined in orange. Those that park across the street from the auditorium will have a crossing guard to ensure safe passage to campuses.
  • All High School student drop-off and pick-up will be in front of the Food Service building and traffic is designated as one way from south to north (in green). **(Traffic coming from the north on White Oak Road are encouraged to drop-off in the parking lot across the street and use the protected cross walk)
This traffic pattern will be in place until the end of August 2018. The district would like to thank you in advance for your cooperation and patience during the process of upgrading our facilities.
