Red Oak Parent Recieves Partners in Education Award
Red Oak parent, Juli Harris is being recognized this month by the Oak Park Unified School Board with the Partners in Education Award.  This award honors volunteers who demonstrate dedication to the goal of working hard so that all of our students receive a good education.  Juli has contributed countless hours to Red Oak making our school the best that it can be.  She has served as our PFA president, treasurer and in many other roles, both official and unofficial.  One of her unofficial roles is to make props for different occasions such as the large horse piñata for the fiesta themed Book Fair.  She inspires and encourages parents to take a more active part in the PFA and in other ways.  Now that her three boys are split between high school, middle school and Red Oak, we have had to share her more, but she is still very active here.  We appreciate all the ways she has helped our school over the years.  This award is well deserved!  Congratulations Juli!

News from the Office
On Friday will will have our annual student Halloween Parade at 8:30 am. Students should wear their costume to school and bring a container to store their costume after the parade. Wearing costumes over school clothes is a great idea. Students should go directly to their classrooms. No violent, blood or gore, and no masks, face or hair coloring. Students who do not want to participate in the parade should arrive at school at 9:30 am. Please click here for more details.
