In the meantime, here is some information that might be helpful to you:

There are a few things on our class wish list.  Take a look at our list and if you would like to provide something, we would greatly appreciate it!


I look forward to seeing you all on Tuesday at 4:00!

Mrs. Wingo

Field Day Fun!

Tuesday is Field Day for Kindergarten!!  Please make sure your child wears something that is ok to get dirty/wet!  Our field day will begin at 12:00 and last until 2:30.  Students will also need to wear sunscreen.  If you send sunscreen with them, I will make sure to put it on them. Parents are welcome to take their kiddo home after field day.

The kiddos have an opportunity to get snow cones after field day.  The Kona Ice truck will be at our school.  If you would like for your student to have a snow cone, please send $3 for a regular, $4 for a King, $5 for a re-usable color changing cup.  Several students have not brought money for snow cones yet.

Field Day is a very fun day!  Your kiddo will have a blast!

Butterfly Garden!!

Our class as been observing caterpillars and writing our observations.  The students get so excited to come into our classroom and see what our caterpillars are doing!

The caterpillars were very small when we received them.


They grew a tremendous amount almost overnight.


They all started making their way to the top of the cup.

The students were very excited when we got our first chrysalis.

Now we have 5 chrysalis.  We will be transferring the chrysalis to the butterfly habitat on Thursday or Friday!  We can’t wait to observe the butterflies when they come out of the chrysalis.

CHAMPS Assembly

Our class practiced for our CHAMPS assembly on stage today.  The students did a great job. I forgot to put their jobs in their folders, but they do know their parts.  Some are introducing songs and pledges, and some are just singing and doing movements to the songs.  I will be sure to send the parts home tomorrow.  Thanks so much and we look forward to seeing you on Friday!

Active Shooter Training

The Board of Trustees at White Oak ISD invites the community of White Oak to Active Shooter Response Training. The event will take place in the CC Simmons Auditorium on Sunday, March 11, 2018. The event will begin at 2:30 pm and end by 4:30 pm including a Q&A time at the end of the presentation.

The trainer will be Mark Seguin, TBG Solutions Inc. Tyler Texas. He recently provided training to all employees at White Oak ISD and we feel his message and insight will be beneficial to everyone in White Oak.

There will be an updated report by the district on the security measures in place at WOISD and our commitment to providing a safe learning environment for our students, faculty and staff.

On behalf of the District, I hope to see you next Sunday.
