Home & School Nutshell, June 12

Happy last day of school! We just wanted to send out one last THANK YOU for an amazing year! We had so much fun at events like Back to School Bash, Jumping Jacks, Painting with a Twist, Family Bingo Night, Lip Sync, Roller Skating Night, Purse Bingo and more! We also had some GREAT things happen within the school like a new playground, Author for a Day, Book Fair, Holiday Shoppe, Ice Cream Socials, teacher appreciation luncheon, an amazing Field Day half time show, some new supplies for teachers and much more! We couldn’t do this without each and every one of you! So THANK YOU!!!!!

A few happenings at the end of the year:

Our oh so popular Purse Bingo raised a little over $12,000! WOW! Thank you all who attended! Such a fun night out! 

We are also purchasing a 3D printer for the school! 3rd grade researched this project, went to the Franklin Institute to see one in action and presented their proposal to Home & School in May! Thank you 3rd grade! Well done!

We will also be getting some much needed new and improved indoor recess items! If we have another winter like we did this past year, the kids will need it! More info to come on both of those when we hit the ground running in August!

Our Ice Cream Social that got rained out was held inside during the End of Year Parties this past Friday! The kids had a blast!

We hate to say goodbye to our 5th grade families but sigh…time goes on! THANK YOU ALL, beyond words, for your years here at Oak Ridge! You will be missed!

Every year, the VP of Home & School, becomes President, just as I did this year after Tara Turner. So, I now officially turn the reigns over to Kristen Pollack as the new H & S President along with Hillary Wexler, our new H & S VP! Have fun ladies!
