    A huge thank you to Seven Oaks parent volunteers, George & Loree Green! They have been recognized by their school for their outstanding volunteer commitment over the last 3 years. George volunteers every Friday as a WatchDOG and Loree is active on the PTA board and helps at school each Monday. It’s clear the Seven Oaks staff and students know and love this volunteering power couple!
