O.B. Whaley is implementing a wonderful program for our students called Saturday Academy! Saturday Academy provides enrichment opportunities for all students while allowing our students to make-up missed days of attendance. Missed days of school also result in lost revenue to our schools. Saturday Academy allows us to recover lost learning as well as lost funding!

Gates on campus should be closed at all times to keep our students and staff safe. If you see one of our gates open, kindly help us close them. Parents, students have been taught that all visitors that are not part of our daily staff have a District badge or visitor's badge. Do not enter the campus unless you have checked-in at the office and have your visitor's badge. If you need to meet your child's teacher; please call or e-mail the teacher to schedule an appointment or schedule one with our front office. Thank you for ensuring the safety of our students!

Rewards and incentives in schools play a powerful role in influencing student's food choices and life-­‐long eating habits. It is the intent of the Child Nutrition Services Department to not only provide nutritious meals at breakfast and lunch service but to act as a resource in nutrition education for teachers and parents. CNS recommends that teachers and parents use celebrations, rewards and incentives that do not undermine the health of students and/or reinforce unhealthful eating habits. Non-­‐food rewards and incentives should be used as the first choice to encourage positive behavior (game supplies, pencils, erasers, stickers and other small school supplies instead of food). If food is used as a reward or part of a celebration, healthy choices with appropriate portion sizes are required (see attachment for ideas). Likewise classroom parties should also be limited during the school.
