Beth’s 5th graders at Court!
OSC “Being There” experience at its best. Students took on the roles of various individuals who would be involved in a trial, from judge to the jury then took part in a simulation of a trial. All of this after the real Butte County judge has visited them in the classroom and they had studied the role of democracy in our court system.
Brian and I would like you to know how privileged we have been to work with you and your children. These letters about us leaving the school will accompany this week’s Sprouty.
Please stop in the office anytime so that we may say our goodbye’s in the next weeks.
The district will begin a recruitment process for a full time Hooker Oak Principal and will hope to hire someone by June so that I may support them in their transition to Hooker Oak.
