Farewell greetings to all! I hope everyone has a wonderful summer vacation. Truly, it has been a joy and an honor to work with the students, parents, faculty, and staff of Oak Mountain Middle School. Just remember, “Old teachers never die, they simply lose their class.”
We have just a bit of housekeeping news to wrap things up for the school year.
1) Book reports were due on Friday. I’ve been reminding students about this report verbally, with a sign on the board, and in these blogs for the last nine weeks. For that reason I will not issue an EAET slip for missing book reports.
2) Field Day for sixth grade will be held on Tuesday, May 20. Students will probably want to bring money so that they can buy shaved ice treats at the event. I recommend hats, sunscreen, and bottles of water as standard equipment for field day. I understand that PE shorts and shorts within dress code will be permitted. Students should wear standard PE shoes; flip flops are not a good idea. Our team shirt is sky blue, so students who didn’t purchase one may want to wear a blue T-shirt of their own.
