Dinner for Veterans

White Oak ISD will be hosting a free dinner for all Veterans and Active Duty Military Personnel this Friday night, November 9th. The meal will be served at 6 pm in the Secondary Food Service building. Please come and bring your spouse as our guest for a nice meal and plenty of time to fellowship with others in the community.
We are also asking our parents and staff members to help get the word out concerning this event. If you know someone who has served or is serving currently, please extend this invitation on behalf of all of us at White Oak ISD.
The Board of Trustees, faculty and staff at White Oak are grateful for the service and sacrifice of our service men and women! It will be our pleasure to provide this small token of our appreciation.

BAND – Thursday Night Football

Thursday Night Football Game

This Thursday, The 7th and 8th grade Band will play at the football game.  This is an easy performance grade.  We only play for the 8th grade game,  so the 7th grade football players can go ahead and play their games and then come to the band section.  We will meet in the MS BandHall at 5:50.  I have no idea when the game will be over, due to the constant starting and stopping of the clock.  I will guess that it will be over around 8:15-8:30.

****7th Grade Football players – You need to get someone to bring your instrument to the stands.  The band hall will NOT be open, so this is critical.  Once the 7th grade games are over, the football players are to quickly change into their regular clothes and head to the stands.  Parents, since they are playing their instruments, please do not bring any food or drinks (other than Water) to them while they are in the stands.  They will get 3rd quarter off, so they can get food at that time.  ***

Rules for the stands:

  1.  No Cellphones – We are still on school property and the football stands are an extension of our classroom.   The students can use their phones during 3rd Quarter, so Parents – Please don’t text them during the game.
  2. Yes, they must stay for the entire game.  They will not receive credit for leaving early.
  3. They receive 3rd quarter off just like the High School.  This gives them an opportunity to visit the concession stand if they wish.  They MUST be back before the end of the 3rd quarter.
  4. At the conclusion of the game, everyone must take their instrument back to the band hall.  Once their instrument is put up, they are dismissed.   Parents  – Please work out the details with your student as to where you will be picking them up.

October 31

October 31 is an Early Release Day.  Students will be dismissed at 12:00 in order for teachers to be involved in Staff Development.  Students will NOT be permitted to dress up for Halloween.  We have enjoyed a wonderful week of Red Ribbon activities so we will dress as normal.
