Coffee with Dr. Lemon

Join me to start your day for an informal chat on December 10th in the Junior High cafeteria.  Talk "anything" Oak Grove!  I will give you an overview of current and future activities taking place at our school.  I am hoping to be able to answer your questions about the District and perhaps make some time to give a tour of the facility to showcase our renovations, for those interested.  We will provide coffee and donuts for all who attend.  The event will start at 8:30 a.m. and will last no longer than 10 a.m.  Do not feel obligated to stay the entire time, but I'd like to set aside 90 minutes in case it is needed!  Please sign in at the JH office to get your visitor's badge.  If possible, please send an RSVP e-mail with attendee's name to Kelly Pickard at  This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

I hope to see you on December 10th.
With Oak Grove pride,
Dr. Lemon, Ed.D

Grades 5-8 Extra Conference Days


Last week we informed you that our 5-8 teachers will be available for an extra day of conferences.  Registration for those conferences will be open from noon on Monday, 11/24/14 until noon on Monday, 12/1/14.

The registration link is slightly different than last week:

You will need the student number and password for each student.

All conferences will take place in the JH café from 1:45 PM to 5:00 PM.

Here are the extra conference dates:
5th grade - December 4th
6th grade - December 2nd
7th grade - December 1st (see note below about Mrs. Pusateri)
8th grade - December 3rd
Mrs. Pusateri - December 9th (see note below)

PLEASE NOTE! Mrs. Pusateri, 7th grade science teacher, is scheduled for jury duty next week.  As a result, she will not be available on Dec. 1st.  If you have a 7th grade student, you will still see her name as an option, and you are welcome to sign up for a conference time, but she will not be able to see you until Tuesday, Dec. 9th.  Again, feel free to sign up for a conference with Mrs. Pusateri, but plan to see her in the JH Cafeteria on Dec. 9th, not Dec. 1st.
