Williamson County Schools weekly notes – Oak View Elementary School

The character traits for October are balance and pursuit of excellence. October is National Anti-Bullying Awareness Month, and the theme for Red Ribbon Week (Oct. 24-26) is One School One Goal – Bully and Drug Free. To show support everyone is asked to wear something red on Oct. 24 and their Oak View T-shirts on Oct. 26. In kindergarten, students are learning about life cycles. They are discovering the stages of a pumpkin: from seed, to sprout, to plant to flower to pumpkin. First graders are learning about the seasonal habits of animals, including migration. They are also studying what makes animals endangered and extinct. The students are learning about verbs and using them to write poems about the animals they are studying. In second grade reading, students are learning strategies to use when they come across tricky parts in reading. They are putting on their game face and meeting challenging words and texts head on. The second grade program, Going Buggy, will be performed next Friday, Oct. 19, at 9:30 a.m. in the gym. The Oak View community wants to thank the fabulous Oak View P.T.A. for a wonderful Hoot, Scoot and Boogie last Friday. This fundraiser was lots of fun and is a huge support to the school.
