September 12th Newsletter

Dear Parents and Guardians,

We have had a great opening of school.  The purpose of this letter is to give you some information and reminders.                               

Do you want to help the school?  Don’t forget to save your “BOX TOPS.”  Box tops can be found on hundreds of items in grocery stores. 

1.       Confused about “new math”?  If so, you want to attend our Title I meeting, Tuesday, Sept. 18th, at 6:30 p.m.  You will have an opportunity to understand how to help your child with math.  Look for the flyer explaining the event.  I hope to see you there.

2.       Please visit our school website often.  It contains links to my big campus, e-books, a school calendar, and various other information.  Our address is www.newtoncountyschools.org/oakhill.

3.       For safety reasons, student check-outs after 1:30 p.m. are not permitted.  To check out a student, the person must report to the office, have ID, and be listed on the child’s information card as having permission to check out the child.

5.       If you need to change the way your child goes home, please send a signed and dated note with a phone number for verification.  You can also send an email before 1:00 p.m.to ohefax@newton.k12.ga.us.  Please do not email teachers or office staff to make transportation changes.  We are unable to make transportation changes over the phone.

 If I can assist you in any way, please contact me.  On behalf of the faculty and staff of Oak Hill Elementary School, thank you for the opportunity to educate your child.

Sincerely,

                                                                                                                                             Brenda Gammans, Ph.D.
