Good morning, Mighty Oak families! We were planning to have our student vs. staff 3 point contest today as part of our Mighty Oaks Madness fun, but the rain had other plans for us, so we’ll push that to next week. We have only one more day to donate to go toward end of the year activities, extracurricular activities and teacher funds. Any amount helps! CLICK TO DONATE
