A Change in Our Fundraising for Our School

Starting in fall 2022, all SCSD PTAs will partner with the San Carlos Education Foundation to streamline fundraising across the district. All fundraising will be led by the capable team at SCEF. PTAs will not hold separate fundraising drives. This model provides clarity and simplicity to donors and frees the PTA to focus on our core community-building mission. The annual SCEF suggested donation will increase to include funding for PTA budgets.

PTA Appreciation

Thank you to the incredibly big hearts in our community for donating once again to Save the Children Ukraine. Our school raised another $1,200, and our entire district raised close to $10,000. Thanks to everyone for buying sunflowers and donating to the Ukraine fund, to our volunteers for making the fundraiser run smoothly, and for bringing a little bit of light in such a dark time. We are very grateful.

Message from Our Principal

Dear Families, 
Welcome to White Oaks! 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.
