Wednesday, we had our OGE Gives Back event. This event was started 4 years ago as a way our students and families give back to the community we live in. Over the years, we have done food drives, Christmas cards to our military overseas, and decorating placemats for Meal on Wheels. This year we partnered with the local Ronald McDonald house. The students and their families decorated paper lunch bags with inspiring words, pictures and even word search. They them stuffed with donated non-perishable foods. These bags are a great grab and go snack while their children are at the hospital getting treated.
Thank you to all who were involved in such a wonderful event.
All Pro Dads is scheduled for Oct 29th. You can register at http://ow.ly/pVmE50wT9gF
Registration is not required but encouraged so they can get a head count for breakfast. It will start at 7:45am in the cafeteria.
Attn: Parents as a reminder please send in the cards that were attached to your students fundraiser paperwork that went home last week. Every time they reach a certain quantity of items sold they will get one of these Geckos.
Did everyone have a great time at our trunk or treat? We sure did.
We hope that all the families had a fun filled evening with dressing up in their costumes (parents to), food, games, and crafts. We want to congratulate our winners for the scariest, silliest, and fan favorite of trunks. Everyone did an amazing job in decorating their trunks. Here's a few pictures from that night. If you would like to share some please comment below, maybe it will even end up in the yearbook.
We would like to thank our volunteers. Without the volunteers we can't do events like this. So thank you to the volunteers who came out to setup, direct cars, cook, assist with crafts, and those that stayed to help clean up. To the volunteers that helped with admission, food, and spirit wear. Everything you do is much appreciated. Thank you to Kona Ice for coming out and helping to cool us down. To the people who participated in the trunks and Dr.Porter for allowing us to do the event.
