Organization (PTO) Corner:
We would like to take this newsletter moment to introduce ourselves!
Jayme Bateman, President
This is my 2nd year at Oasis but my 10th year in PTO. I have previously served as secretary, Vice President, and President. I’m excited to serve as the president this year at Oasis! I’m a single mom to 3 crazy kids; high school, junior high, and OES. Books are my passion! I set a goal on New Years to read 52 books in a year…I’m at 31 so far! We love watching Dr Who and playing soccer! JTNP is our happy place! The desert is hot but we must love it since my family has been here for 25 years!
Gina Gabler, Vice President
This is my 3rd year volunteering and my 2nd year on the board! I’m 26 and I have 5 kids whom I adore! I am a hairstylist and love crazy colorful hair! I enjoy coffee as much as my kids enjoy play dates at the park J Christmas is my holiday and I have my tree up right after Halloween! I am looking forward to a wonderful year with all our Bobcats here at Oasis! Did someone mention Harry Potter….?
Meridith Riddlespurger, Secretary
I’m 26 and have 5 children. This is my first year on the PTO board but I have volunteered in the past. My favorite color is orange and I go all out for Halloween. My family and I love anything that has to do with being outside, when it’s not a million degrees out of course! We love playing on the beach!
Veronica Bennett, Treasurer
This is my second year volunteering on the PTO board. I have one Bobcat and one Bobcat in training. I am a military spouse of 10+ years. Along with volunteering my time to PTO and Oasis Elementary, I also volunteer my time to a local military spouses running club. My family and I love to stay active whether it’s running, hiking, or exploring the state. I like to be knowledgeable and have resources on hand in order to help our community in any way possible. Looking forward to a great new year and meeting our Bobcat families!
Susie Fogg, Parliamentarian
I enjoy being apart of our Oasis Elementary community. I have one child currently at Oasis this year. I have volunteered in the classroom and as part of the PTO off and on since 2007 when my older children first joined OES. This is my first year being a part of the PTO board. Currently at our school, I help with the Box Tops program, getting the tops collected and mailed in. I am also active in the School Site Council as the secretary. Reading is my favorite past time and it is my pleasure to encourage students to open a book and go on an adventure! I look forward to all of the amazing things that we as parents, teachers, and students will accomplish this year at OES!
Every Friday is Bobcat Day! Wear your Bobcat shirts or school colors to school!
