Dear OKE Families,

The last two weeks have be very hard on our immediate community and the entire state of Texas.  I have been in awe at the amount of hard work our families have been doing in order to start rebuilding after Harvey.  
Our Katy ISD faculty and staff have been amazing at working non-stop to get our students back in school where they can have routine and truly begin their academic school year with peers, their teachers, and staff that love them.
.
Many of our students, in Katy ISD and throughout Texas, will be returning back to school without their necessary school supplies. One way that we can help immediately, is by purchasing a PTA membership. Texas PTA is dedicated to the "Fill the Back Pack campaign...Texas PTA will be working closely with school districts to provide the important supplies for students and teachers..." 
 
The OKE PTA board would like to ask our families to continue doing the amazing work that you are accomplishing out in the community. Over the next couple of weeks, as we hear more about specific needs from the district and other campuses, we will reach out to you for support. If you know or have any specific needs, please contact me at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or message me on Facebook. 
 
HOW YOU CAN HELP THIS WEEK:
10 a.m  on Friday, September 15th:  OKE PTA will be sponsoring a WORK PARTY to benefit our teachers (they need as much help as we can give them in order to help kick off the school year again) at OKE in the OLA.  During this time, we will also be answering any volunteer questions and hosting a general board meeting where we will be discussing the 2017-2018 school year and voting on changes to our budget and fundraising.
I am truly looking forward to seeing you all this week!  I miss seeing your sweet children and volunteering next to you at OKE!  
 
Regards,
 
Kimberly Beidle
OKE PTA President
