NEW PLAY STRUCTURE- Volunteers needed

THIS WEEK, Thursday, and Friday (12th & 13th) and again Sunday (15th)

Buck Ernest (Blue Oak Dad and new Board member) will be leading the VOLUNTEER effort to dismantle the current play structure and install the new structure.

If you can help this week with the dismantle portion...

Thur. & Fri , the work day will begin between 1:30 and 2 pm and conclude ~ 7 pm

Sunday, the work day will begin between 10:00-10:30 am and conclude ~ 6 pm

Any amount of time that any parents/family/friends can come and help out that would be terrific! The NEW play structure kit should arrive Monday 16th or Tuesday 17th. If all goes right and we are ready, we’ll start assembly of new structure that week or perhaps the following week (7/23 to 7/29) The new structure should take 10-12 days to assemble. 

More details to follow asap. If you have any question please give me a call!

Thank you.

Buck Ernest

Bell Schedule Changes for 2018-19
All full days will now be 20 - 30 minutes shorter next year. Our school year is slightly longer and we will still meet the required instructional minutes.
We believed these adjustments will better meet the children's needs and help reduce discipline and truancy issues.

Half-day (Thurs.) – 8:20 am – 12:45 pm

2018 Summer Gardening

The Blue Oak Garden Club will be keeping the rhythm of meeting in the gardens on campus at 10 am Thursday mornings throughout the summer .

Certain needed tasks will be taken care of weekly, along with checking the irrigation, light weeding, harvesting, etc. Anything harvested can be taken home to enjoy! We usually spend about an hour and then head to the creeks.
If you have any questions you can email  
Hope to see you this summer! 

We are continuing to accept applications for the community seats. Please help spread the word and remember that Grandparents qualify as "community" members.
