Celebrating Black History Month – Soul Food Edition!

Celebrating Black History Month – Soul Food Edition!








Ms. Wanda, Mr. Jackson & Ms. Jerri of the foodservice staff got together to honor tradition at Three Oaks! In previous years, the food service staff would invite families into the school to honor Black History Month and serve a delicious dinner of soul food. Given the unique circumstances, tradition was upheld through classroom visits!

The food service staff not only brought the soul food to the students, but they also gave a wonderful presentation! They shared what soul food is, common places to find soul food, and talked about influential African Americans in the foodservice industry who invented essential cooking utensils and methods used today! We are thankful for staff like Ms. Wanda, Mr. Jackson & Ms. Jerri who make learning fun and share their talents with us!

Three Oaks Has Been Reauthorized!

Three Oaks Has Been Reauthorized!

Exciting news at Three Oaks Public School Academy! We were recently reauthorized for eight more years! This means our authorizer, Bay Mills, sees the value that Three Oaks is providing to their students and community. This is the second eight-year reauthorization Three Oaks has received – which is a really big honor and quite rare.

“We get to continue to serve and provide opportunities for our Muskegon area kids,” said Principal Monecia Vasbinder. “Our goal is to make an impact in our community and fulfill the needs of our students. We offer something different to our area students. Our teachers pride themselves on individualizing their approaches for each student.”

The reauthorization was a team effort. The school board, area superintendent, and both school leaders presented to Bay Mills on the work that’s being done at Three Oaks. Information regarding academic performance and annual testing was shared.

“We have an amazing school board – they truly all have a heart for kids,” said Mrs. Vasbinder. “They are very invested and they always make sure Three Oaks has everything they need to succeed. Together we believe we have to continuously improve or we don’t deserve to be here.”

Three Oaks opened its doors in 2003 and is currently reauthorized to serve their community through July of 2029.

March is Reading Month

March is Reading Month

March was a little bit of a blur this year! COVID-19 abruptly interrupted the month, but we didn’t let that stop us from reading!
During the first part of the month, Mrs. Priddy had some very special guest readers! Our students heard from:
  • Tara Triezenberg, our reading specialist
  • Kalynne Williams, our teacher’s aide
  • Jared Meldrum, our assistant principal
  • Sara Hogle, Human Resources generalist

Mrs. Priddy’s husband, son, and daughter also made a special visit to the class to do a little reading! How fun! (Pictured below)

We even had read-a-louds on Facebook after the schools closed from Mrs. Zavesky, Mrs. Triezenberg, and Ms. Frizzle!

Check out the most recent Facebook Read-A-Loud here! Follow our Facebook page for resources and activities to keep you busy during quaratine!
