Red Ribbon Week & Homecoming Festivities
This week we will be celebrating Red Ribbon Week and school pride with Homecoming. The Red Ribbon Campaign is a way for our POMS community to take a visible stand against drugs. This year’s theme is Respect Yourself: Be Drug Free! 

To show our commitment to respecting ourselves with the healthy lifestyle choice to be drug free, we will have a daily theme of dress that will coincide with Homecoming spirit week.

Monday’s theme will be "Wear a Red Ribbon".  Teachers will distribute red ribbon pins, and we ask students and teachers to wear them every day next week.

Tuesday is "Blue Out" for Homecoming Game Day! Students should wear their Pin Oak blue uniform shirt or Charger shirt.

Wednesday is "Go Red" Day. Students are invited to wear a red shirt with their uniform bottom.

Thursday we will buddy up because friends don't let friends do drugs or bully.  Students are invited to buddy up for twin day! Come in your best twin attire. Nothing covering the head or face allowed. 

Friday is Jersey Day to represent our commitment to health lifestyle choices! Students are invited to wear athletic jerseys representing any team: college, high school, pro teams, or a Pin Oak jersey, with their uniform bottom.

2nd 6-Week Grading Cycle
This grading cycle is shorter than the others. Progress will come out on October 23rd and then the grading period will close on November 6th.  It's important that students monitor grades and work completion.

Homecoming Dance
On Friday our 7th and 8th graders are invited to attend our annual Homecoming Dance. Students may dress up, or may choose to come in a more casual attire.  Tickets will be on sale before school in the Gym and MPR, during third lunch, or at the door on Friday.

Just Around the Corner! 
Fall Book Fair
Come to the Pin Oak Book Fair Nov. 10th - Nov. 14th, located in the DLL Room in the back of the library!  Come browse before, during and after school, or during Charger Fest from 12:00-4:00 p.m.

Thursday morning, Nov. 12th, the PTO will be hosting “Books and Breakfast” beginning at 7:30. This is a great opportunity to come and spend some time with your student, enjoy some free breakfast and support the library at the same time.

All proceeds benefit the Pin Oak Library.
