Active Shooter Response Training for Community

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.

Pennies for Pets Update

Our sixth graders have been collecting “Pennies for Pets” over the last month. With the money collected, they have made a BIG difference in the lives of some precious “fur babies.”

So far they have:

  • sponsored the $100 adoption fee of an older pet named Noodle (he is up for adoption now through Regard4Life)  **I went to see him at Petco this past Saturday. He’s SO cute!
  • Bought $100 worth of necessary items for Longview Animal Care and Adoption Center

Our students have shown great generosity and love that stretches far into our community and the hearts of some loving fur babies. Way to go!

Look at Noodle! He’s ready to be adopted!

Card Received from Regard4Life

East Texas Animal Care & Adoption Center

Supplies bought for Longview Animal Care & Adoption Center

Way to go sixth graders! Your contribution makes a difference!
