Remember, to change an address you must provide a lease/mortgage agreement, electric bill, water bill or cable bill with your name and updated address on it.  It is VERY important that we have the correct information to contact you when needed.

ID’s Required

For the safety of our students, teachers and staff, anyone who enters our campus for any reason at all MUST show their ID card or Bear Tag to the front office. Pictures of ID’s and pictures of Bear tags are NOT allowed.


Water Bottles

***IMPORTANT: Each child needs to bring a water bottle to class EVERYDAY.  They will be able to refill them at the refillable water stations located around the school.  They will bring their water bottles to PE and lunch. Please make sure their water bottles are labeled with their first and last name.




5th Grade will be pre-selling Krispy Kreme donuts from January 17th- February 7th.  They will be ready for pickup on Thursday February 16th.

Be on the lookout for that flyer coming home.

January- Responsibility & Commitment


What does it mean to be Responsible?

Never give up. Never give up. Never give up." Winston Churchill


“Commitment is a big part of what I am and what I believe. How committed are you to winning? How committed are you to being a good friend? To being trustworthy? To being successful? How committed are you to being a good father, a good teammate, a good role model? There's that moment every morning when you look in the mirror: Are you committed, or are you not?” LeBron James


“The only limit to your impact is your imagination and commitment.” Tony Robbins

I never failed once when I invented the light bulb. It just happened to be a 2,000-step process.” Thomas Edison


It’s a new semester! Encourage your students to show responsible behavior and be committed to being their best!  Hope everyone had a relaxing and peaceful holiday.

You are making a difference!  Kindness always matters at Three Oaks Elementary!
