5th Grade Decimals

DecimalsStudents were able to write on their tables with dry erase markers and use Smarties as decimal points during an introductory math activity.  Oakland fifth graders learned to divide decimal numbers by decimal numbers (SOL 5.5) by writing down division problems on their tables and then moving Smarties to represent decimals.

Automated Attendance Calls

attendanceAs a safety precaution, the automated attendance calls sent when your child is absent from school will now be sent earlier in the day.  Starting Monday, November 3, attendance calls for elementary and middle school students will be pushed out at 10:45 a.m.
Parents are encouraged to review the telephone number that School Messenger currently uses for attendance calls.  The first phone number in the student information system is the default setting for receiving attendance calls.  Because that number might be a home number, parents might want to change the School Messenger setting to a daytime cell phone number.
For technical assistance, please email Bethanne Bradshaw at bethannebradshaw@spsk12.net

Welcome to Oakland!

At Oakland we enjoy activities together that encourage academic growth, healthy habits, SOL’s with a kinesthetic approach, and an environment conducive to developing the whole learner.  Every grade level participates in a Resource Day where students are immersed in SOL’s via a hands on approach.  Art, library, music, and physical education teachers guide the children through events directly correlated to the Virginia SOL’s.  We also encourage wellness activities through pedometer challenges and fruits and veggies taste tests during our yearly Fitness and Nutrition event.  In addition, students have extracurricular activities such as ONN News Network, Theater Cafe, Chorus, March Madness, Shamrock Run Club, Odyssey of the Mind, Talented Art, and Talented Music.  Click on the photos below to see our school in action.
