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 signed minute-tracker sheet to Mrs. Westerhouse 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 each day (boots, snow pants, mittens, hat, & scarf). The children will not be able to play on the snowy areas of the playground without boots. We go out for recess every day unless the temperature is less than 10 degrees. It is a school rule that all children go outside for recess. I ask that children take their winter gear home every Friday. This gives you the opportunity to wash and air out their clothing and boots for the following week.

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. Our closing can also be heard on 103.3. Closings will also be posted on the OA Facebook page. We attempt to post closings as soon as possible, generally no later than 6:30 a.m.

Mrs. Westerhouse and Miss Hawkins
