We are happy to have many special events at White Oaks. Below are details on the major events for 2019-2020. For the latest event and general school dates, see the School Calendar

August 29
Back to School Night TK-3
Each fall, White Oaks hosts Back to School Night where parents/guardians learn about the school year ahead. The evening begins in the multiuse room with words of welcome from the school principal, SCEF leaders and our PTA. Then, parents/guardians head to classrooms to hear from classroom teachers who present an overview of classroom curriculum, expectations, and special events in order to build a strong home-school partnership to support student success.
September 20
Food Trucks & Movie Night
Kick off the new school year with our first PTA-sponsored Family Night! Bring a picnic dinner or visit food trucks onsite. Food/Play from 5:30-7pm and movie starts at 7:30pm.


October 20
White Oaks students gather pledges and then walk a designated course at the school. The children have a great time lapping the course to celebrate and benefit their school. The White Oaks Walk-A-Thon is the primary PTA fundraiser for the school and ALL of the money raised goes directly to White Oaks.
After the event, join us for the FREE Family Fun Day. Spend times with friends and family while the kids enjoy carnival games, cakewalks, music, face painting and more.
