From Our Principal...
Hello Golden Oak Families!
The 2016-17 school year is off to a great start! Your children have been working very hard and are back in the routine of school. They are in for great learning experiences this year!
It was great to see so many of you at our Title I meeting and our Back to School Night. It truly does take us all - family, school, student - to ensure the best for our Tigers. Be sure that you see your child’s teacher if you have any questions about the information you received.
I want to invite you to view our Student Bulletin, found under Student Resources on this website. This will help you keep up with school-wide events happening for your children at Golden Oak. I also want to invite you to read our Principal’s Newsletter, published bimonthly under Parent Quick Links. Our September/October issue will be out next week.
Thank you for your support and for making GOLDEN OAK the BEST!
Your very fortunate Principal,
Dream Big and Work Hard!
