Message from the Principal 11.6.19

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. See the attached flyer for more information about The Oakdale School Giving Tree.

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.

Funny Friday Joke: No joke this week/No school 11/1/19.
