The Jog-A-Thon on Sept. 28, 2018 was a great success for the students at Hooker Oak. This year, the students raised over $24,000 for our school!
The entire school participated and school spirit was high. Students jogged their hearts out while the disco music pumped out the beats, and Principal Brian, teachers and parent fans cheered them on.
Our kids benefit every day from the fundraising efforts of this event! The school uses this money not only for extra curricular activities like art, theater and events, but also for classroom technology and teacher supplies that are not funded publicly.
Thank you to all the parent volunteers who helped bring this all together!
Because of you and your generous donations to the Hooker Oak PTO, teachers are getting more money for supplies, tools and resources for your children’s classes!
This fall, the PTO will reimburse each teacher up to $18 per student for classroom needs. That’s a total of $6,696! Look for more to come in the spring as well.
Donations and volunteers help make our school great! Thank you for your generosity!
At a recent all school get-together, Hooker Oak School was acknowledged for two top scores last year: largest improvement in ELA (English Language Acquisition) and highest attendance rates. Principal Brian relayed this information at the August PTO meeting, noting that Math scores also improved.
Great job students, teachers and families!
Next time you are in the school halls, take a look outside at the Nature Study Area. It is in the middle of a much-deserved renovation.
A big shoutout to Lowe's who came in October with materials (mulch, gravel, irrigation) and their own volunteers to begin the hard work of cleaning up and starting work on the pond, irrigation and walkways. Many thanks also go to the Green Committee's Michelle Ahern, Jennifer Rossovich, and several families that came out to help.
Look for continued improvements in construction of the pond and bog.
