Message from the Principal 03.11.2020

Based on the 18-19 Next Generation Accountability Results, Oakdale was named a School of Distinction for a 4th year in a row. This recognition is for High Performance & High Growth for all students in ELA and Math, as well as High Growth for high needs students in ELA and Math. It should also be noted that Oakdale ranked second in the state for ELA growth among high needs students. Congratulations once again to all of our students and staff.

No school this Friday, 3/13, due to a Professional Development Day. Ice cream will be available to purchase Thursday, 3/12.

Reminder: On Friday, 3/27, there will be a half-day of school for Professional Development. Students will be dismissed at 12:25. On this day, students are encouraged to wear a fun/crazy hat to school and donate $1 to show our support to our D.A.R.E. Officer in her efforts to raise money to run the Boston Marathon.
