• STUDENT ANNOUNCEMENTS:      November 17, 2017                       Bulletin #65            ‘A’ Day



    1. We know that some of you are changing the time on your iPads. PLEASE STOP DOING THAT. It causes many of the apps that we use for learning to glitch. iPads were issued for what reason? Learning. We believe in Freedom with Responsibility at Oakland. We are giving you today and tomorrow to fix this problem. Starting Friday, November 17th, if you have an iPad problem that is caused by your date and time not being set correctly, you will receive a consequence.


    1. Regular backpacks need to be in your locker from 7:30-2:35. They are not allowed in hallways, classrooms, or the cafeteria. String backpacks are not allowed in the lunch line. You may place them on the blue shelves before you enter the lunch line.


    1. Buy your yearbook today online or in the office from Mrs. Reddick.


    1. IPRs will be distributed in advisory this morning. Parents have been notified that IPRs are coming home, so they will be expecting them!


    1. Today in advisory, you will get a catalog and order form for Oakland apparel. This is not a fund raiser, it is just an opportunity for those who are interested to purchase some cool Oakland stuff. Orders and money are due on Monday, December 4th. Teachers, please send a student to the office to pick up your copies if you forgot them.


    1. College of the Week: University of New Orleans, also known as UNO, is located in New Orleans, Louisiana. In 1958, the University of New Orleans opened its doors. They have a full service honors program which provides academic counseling, special courses, and student-led activities. Academic programs offered at UNO prepare students to participate in the global economy. Their mascot is Captain BrUNO. This week’s trivia question is: What is the tuition cost for a non-Louisiana resident?  (There will be FOUR winners this week!)


    1. We will have an activity bus on Monday, but not on Tuesday. School will not be in session Wednesday, Thursday, or Friday next week. We will miss you 😊.


    1. Basketball spectator expectations

    Remain seated during games. Trips to the restroom and/or concessions should be made before the game or during halftime.

    Stay off of the court 

    Appropriate language and cheering is expected from all who attend basketball games.
