Message from the Principal 11.13.19

The cold weather has officially arrived. Please make sure your child has weather appropriate clothes for school. Students go out for noon recess each day unless weather is severe.

We were so excited to celebrate World Kindness Day today!

We are preparing for the upcoming holiday season and will be putting up our Giving Tree in the lobby soon. The tree will have mittens on it with the age, gender, and gift wish of an Oakdale student. REMINDER: Requests for assistance are due to Allie in the office by November 15th.

Kind Quote/Thought of the Week: "Imagine what our real neighborhoods would be like if each of us offered, as a matter of course, just one kind word to another person." - Mr Rogers

Funny Friday Joke: Knock knock. Who's there? Who. Who Who? Is there an owl in here?

We will be hosting the first of three story hours for incoming kindergarten students attending Oakdale Elementary School for the 2020-2021 school year. See the attached flier for more information. We are hoping to get the word out about this event to current Oakdale families with siblings entering kindergarten next year, as well as new families. Please help us spread the word to families that you know have students coming to Oakdale next year.

Here is a picture of the Lost and Found. We have shown all the items to students during lunch waves. Starting this month, we will donate all unclaimed Lost and Found Items to Social Services or Good Will on the last Friday of the month. Please encourage your child to check out the Lost and Found if he/she has lost something.

Kind Quote/Thought of the Week: Kindness is free; let's pass it on.

Message from the Principal 10.23.19

Security Reminder: We thank you for being kind and willing to hold the door open for people entering the building behind you, but we ask that you please let office staff buzz everyone into the building for security purposes.

At the end of school last year, we participated in The Look for the Good Project. We will continue our focus on kindness this year with our grade level t-shirts featuring the phrase: IT'S COOL TO BE KIND! Forms will come home today to indicate what size you would like for your child. The PTO donates money towards the cost of the shirts, but your donations really help!
