I hope everyone enjoyed a restful break last week. Many here have commented on the gift of taking a full week of vacation for the Thanksgiving holiday. True to the season, I am feeling an increased need to turn inward and take time for reflection. Perhaps you are as well.
Teachers are holding parent conferences this week. Conferences are very important to your child’s success and show support for the work your teacher is doing in the classroom. Please be sure to sign up. Sign up sheets are located outside your child’s classroom.
At conferences you will be given two forms to complete. One is a fundraising questionnaire. The other is a survey on your experience with your child’s teacher. Both are confidential and to be turned into a locked box in the foyer of the front office.
This Saturday December 1, Blue Oak will be hosting a Nurtured Heart Approach parenting workshop from certified trainer and former Blue Oak parent, Erica Charlesworth. The workshop will be held from 2-5pm in the great room. The cost of the workshop is $39 per person. Blue Oak staff are using this approach school wide and have seen positive results. This is a great way to enhance your effectiveness as a parent and to create consistency within in your child’s life. Please RSVP Erica at 520-9239 or email@example.com.
Our Charter Petition Renewal (to operate as a charter school) will be reviewed by the Chico Unified School Board on Wednesday, December 5th at 6:00 p.m., in the Chico City Council Chambers on East Fourth and Main Streets. We are inviting all Blue Oak Community Members to attend. Unfortunately, we do not know our time slot, but it should be sometime after 6:15pm. Your presence is critical to ensure our school receives a 5-year renewal. This event is not ideal for small children. We hope to see as many as possible to support our school in this endeavor.
Sunday, December 9, come join us for a campus work day from 10am-3pm. We will focus on clean up and organization. You can show up and check in at the front door or sign up in advance on signupgenius.com.
Lunch menus for December are due now.
