CHARACTER COUNTS!
R-E-S-P-E-C-T

Treat others with respect • Be tolerant and accepting of differences • Use good manners, not bad language • Be considerate of the feelings of others • Don’t threaten, hit or hurt anyone • Deal peacefully with anger, insults, and disagreements.

BOOK-IT
Please keep track of the minutes read each day and total them at the end of every week.  The fifth grade goal is 400 minutes per month.  Return the parent-signed minute tracker sheet to Ms. Chai at the end of the month for a coupon for a free Pizza Hut personal pan pizza!                   

WINTER WEATHER
Please make sure to send appropriate winter gear with your child (boots, snow pants, mittens, hat, & scarf). We go out for recess every day unless the temperature is less than 10 degrees. I ask that children take their winter gear home every Friday to wash. Every students must have an extra change of shoes to wear inside.

SCHOOL CLOSINGS DUE TO WEATHER
‘Tis the season and in the event of a snow day, our closing will be posted as Oakland Academy on WWMT (channel 3) and WOOD TV 8. Closings will also be posted on the Oakland Academy Facebook page. We attempt to post closings as soon as possible, generally no later than 6:30 a.m.
