This will be the day that we count as our make-up day for the days we missed earlier in the year due to weather. Students and teachers will still have Monday, April 23rd, as a day off.

Active Shooter Response Training
The Board of Trustees at White Oak ISD invites the community of White Oak to Active Shooter Response Training. The event will take place in the CC Simmons Auditorium on Sunday, March 11, 2018. The event will begin at 2:30 pm and end by 4:30 pm including a Q&A time at the end of the presentation.
The trainer will be Mark Seguin, TBG Solutions Inc. Tyler Texas. He recently provided training to all employees at White Oak ISD and we feel his message and insight will be beneficial to everyone in White Oak.
There will be an updated report by the district on the security measures in place at WOISD and our commitment to providing a safe learning environment for our students, faculty, and staff.
On behalf of the District, I hope to see you next Sunday.

See you back at school on March 20th!
Our incredibly generous students continue to bring in “Pennies for Pets.” I’m super amazed at them for caring about our furry friends. As of now, we’ve raised $222.00.
Last week, I contacted Regard4Life. There were many ways we could help this organization. One of the ways to help was to sponsor an adoption. I let my students vote on whether they wanted to sponsor a cat or a dog. Dog was the winner! I was able to give $100 of our money to Regard4Life in order to sponsor the adoption of an older white Schnauzer named Noodle. Noodle was found running around the streets of Gilmer. He’s been “fixed,” had some teeth pulled, and is now ready for adoption. We can’t wait to post that Noodle had found his fUR-ever home.
Way to go kids!
A few of those caring students are pictured below:
