Modern Woodmen of America Honor Hometown Hero
Modern Woodmen of America recently recognized our very own Mr. Clemons as a Hometown Hero! Mr. Clemons has been volunteering at Finley-Oates for more than sixteen years. Every morning, he greets students as they arrive, helping them out of their cars and getting their day off to a good start. In addition, he often picks up trash on school grounds and brings much appreciated supplies to teachers. Modern Woodmen made a donation to the charity of Mr. Clemon’s choice (Fannin Health Clinis) in his honor.

Ms. Fox Gets SLIMED!
On September 15, faculty and students at Finley-Oates Elementary gathered to watch principal Mary Lou Fox get SLIMED! Donning a rain poncho, shower cap, and goggles, students watched as Ms. Fox had a bucket of purple slime dumped on her head. The sliming was in celebration of the fact that Finley-Oates reached its goal of raising over $2500 to help West Columbia Elementary, a school affected by Hurricane Harvey. Thanks for being a good sport, Ms. Fox! And thanks to everyone who donated change to help the West Columbia students and teachers!
