Family Night with Food Trucks and a Movie! — Friday, September 21st

We hope you can join us to kick off the new school year with an outdoor Food Truck and Family Movie Night! Bring a picnic dinner or visit Butler's BBQ, El Super Taco Man, and Kona Ice Food Trucks. This year's movie is "The Lion King". Come with blankets, warm clothes and your White Oaks friends and family for a night of fun! Come just for food trucks and play time, or stay for the movie. Food trucks will start at 5:30 pm, followed by the movie on the lawn at sundown. Please, no wheels on campus. Park your bikes, scooter and skateboards in the bike racks.

Message from Our Principal

Dear Families, 
Welcome to White Oaks! As I begin my first school year as Principal of White Oaks Elementary School, I am energized and deeply committed to making a positive difference in the lives of your children. I look forward to continuing our vision of providing an innovative and engaging learning experience that will foster the development of the whole child.
 
Our dedicated teachers work collaboratively to create a well-rounded curriculum that encompasses all aspects of our instructional program. We are committed to:
• Academic Excellence and the 5Cs
• Project-Based Learning and Personalizing Learning
• Active, Playful Learning and Tinkering
• A Focus on the Whole Child
• A Caring and Supportive Learning Community
 
Young learners naturally develop along their own unique time tables. Teachers expertly watch for moments when children are ready to take their next steps. We honor each child by celebrating progress, guiding students to set and self-assess learning goals, and partnering with parents to identify learning opportunities both inside and outside of school.
 
We embrace the challenges of the future while we continue to cherish the traditions of the past. Our remarkable staff, involved parents and inspiring students come together to make White Oaks a wonderful and unique place.
 
Warmly,
Leah Scholer
