“Giving is not about making a donation. It’s about making a difference.” -Kathy Calvin, President United Nations Foundation
Let’s join together to make a difference in the lives of those affected by the Hurricanes…
For the entire month of November we will be collecting donations for the following items:
Pencils & Pens
Binders & Dividers
Loose Leaf Paper
This is a great opportunity for our children to give back to their community, their world, and their fellow classmates!
Come and help us celebrate Ms. Jarman’s retirement! Tuesday, Novemeber 27th at 4:15-5:00pm in the Media Center.
All parents and community members are invited to attend a new principal input meeting on Monday, November 5th at 6 pm in the Oak Grove media center. Please see the attached letter from Area Superintendent Dr. Ashlie Thompson for more information.

Oak Grove Elementary Spirit Week is next week, October 15th through the 19th! It has an enchanted theme this year to go along with our Enchanted Forest Book Fair.
Toadstool Monday – wear red and white
Tuesday -Crazy Creature Hair Day
Whimsical Wednesday – wear your wackiest clothes or socks
Sleepy Thursday – wear your pajamas to school
Forest Friday – wear your green fun run shirts
The Scholastic Book Fair starts on Monday, October 15th and runs through the 24th. Look for a flyer that was sent home with your children and an info letter coming via an email from your room parent.
Please join us on Wednesday, October 10th at 4:15pm for a special general membership meeting. We will be voting on a budget amendment. We encourage all PTA members to attend if at all possible. We need at least 20 members present to vote on these changes.
There will also be a guest speaker at the meeting discussing the upcoming election in November. This should be a great conversation with a lot of valuable information presented.
It’s more important than ever these days to be involved and to advocate for our schools and our children. We sincerely hope that you will be able to join us next Wednesday. The media center will be in use so we will be meeting in a classroom. Signs will be posted pointing the way.
Children are welcome, a PBS movie will be shown. We will also have Athens High School Key Club volunteers who are able to watch children in the next classroom.
