Starting a new school as a student and as a parent can be overwhelming and difficult for some.  We want to make sure that we make this transition as positive as possible and answer all the questions you may have prior to the first day of school.  If you are interested in having a current White Oaks family reach out to your family, please email me (jzholmes@yahoo.com) and we will assign you a buddy.  Your buddy is your personal White Oaks resource.
