Spirit Night @ Chick-fil-A
Date: November 16 (4-8pm)
Please join us for our first Spirit Night at Chick-fil-A!
Our Spirit Night will take place on Friday, November 16 between 4pm and 8pm. The event will coincide with the conclusion of our White Oak Marathon. After a hard run, come out and re-fuel at Chick-fil-A! Not only will you get to take a night off from cooking and have dinner with your fellow White Oak families, you can help us to raise money for our school.
Whether you dine-in or take-out, Chick-fil-A will donate a percentage of the day's sales back to our school. All you need to do is tell your cashier that you are with White Oak Elementary and give your cashier the name of your student's teacher. That's it!
The class that has the most student participation at the Spirit Night will win a chicken nugget tray!
Additionally, you'll have the opportunity to try your luck on the Chick-fil-A prize wheel! Come take a spin on the wheel and see what prize you win! Each spin of the wheel costs $1 and all the money collected from the prize wheel will go directly to White Oak's programs and curriculum support.
Address: 100 Valleystone Dr. (Stone Creek Village), Cary, NC 27519

Box Top Competition
Thanks to all those who participated in our fall Box Top Competition! We've counted all the Box Tops submitted by each class and we're happy to announce that we've collected a total of 2363 Box Tops. That's a total of $236.30 for our school!! Just for clipping a little piece of paper from a package...
We are also happy to name the class winners of the competition. The class winners are:
- Pre-K - 1st Grade
Pre-K (All of Pre-K was considered a single entity)
- 2nd Grade- 3rd Grade
Ms. Kovacs (2nd Grade)
- 4th Grade - 5th Grade

Each winner will be awarded a donut party!
The Box Top Challenge may be over, but keep on clipping those Box Tops from participating product packages. You can send in your Box Tops throughout the rest of the year (make sure to include your student's teacher's name on the outside of the bag). We also anticipate having another competition later in the school year. Whether you send in 1 Box Top or 100, every Box Top helps our school!
