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?
