Hot off the presses! The Story Store 3 Dollar Bill.
Starting Friday, October 28, students will be able to redeem their Cougar Paws at the Cougar Store to purchase these 3 Dollar Bills to be used at Story Store.
Story Store asked Matt LaFleur to create a 3 Dollar Bill and this is what he made. Matt is a wildly talented graphic artist – and father to Penelope in Mrs. Garcia’s 4th grade class. Thanks, Matt!
Many thanks to the Oakton PTA and volunteers for helping to make our Halloween party a great success! Oakton students and their families filled our auditorium to the brim for fun-filled night. Kids enjoyed showing off their costumes, dancing and enjoying Halloween crafts and activities. Special thanks to Marcus Brown for providing the music and to Yum Squared Bakery for providing the cupcake decorating station – the proceeds of which will be donated to Oakton’s eyeglass fund. Happy Halloween!
ESCCA, The Evanston School Children’s Clothing Association, is in desperate need of warm winter clothes!
We most need:
-> Winter parkas and warm coats for sizes 8 (youth) through teen/adult
-> Boys long sleeved shirts sizes 10-18
-> Fleece jackets and pullovers for girls and boys
-> Hoodies, sweatshirts and sweatpants for girls and boys
-> Warm gloves, scarves, snow pants
Please, DO NOT donate:
. Baby or toddler clothes or sizes smaller than 5-6 youth
. Clothing with broken zippers, rips or tears.
Please bring any items in a secure bag to Oakton’s front office during the week of Oct 25-31, where they will be picked up and delivered by our Oakton ESCCA rep. Thank YOU!
Many thanks to all the families who donated items for tonight’s parent-teacher conference supper! There were so many delicious dishes — seafood paella, curry chicken, pasta, pizza, salads, dips & chips, fresh fruit & bread, assorted beverages and a plethora of tempting desserts. Wow. The teachers were very appreciative! Thank you!
Thanks to Yum Squared cookies & mini cupcakes will be made available to be decorated at the Halloween Party. 50% of proceeds will go to support the Oakton Eyeglass Fund that helps to provide corrective lenses to those who are otherwise unable to afford them.
Cookies will be $2.00 and mini cupcakes will be $1 (cash only please!).
Come prepared to buy a sweet treat and enjoy adding your own artistic touches before you gobble it up!
There are still dinner and dessert openings for tonight’s teacher supper. Thank you to everyone who has signed up so far! Our teachers always appreciate it! www.SignUpGenius.com/go/60B0B4AADA62CA57-parentteacher
