Career Day

career-dayEach year Oakland Elementary motivates our students to become the best they can be by hosting a Career Day. We bring in people from our community to talk about their careers and what it took for them to reach this level of success. This year on Friday, March 17, 2017 Oakland is asking our fabulous parents to help us by participating in this worthy cause.

Make-Up Dates

The approved schedule below will allow students to make up lost instructional time due to snow days January 9 – 11, 2017.  The approved 2016-17 calendar indicates that President’s Day (Feb. 20) and the March 15th Teacher Work Day, (an early dismissal day), are the next two days which should be used as make-up days. However, to remain in compliance with VDOE required instructional hours, it was approved that the Parent Teacher Conference Day scheduled for February 13, 2017 also be used as a make-up day.  This will provide a full make up day for students.

Title I School Compact Letters

booksOakland receives school-wide Title I services.  Forms will be sent home this week to every student, ES-5th grade, to notify parents of our Family Engagement Policy & Home and School Compact.  Regardless of whether your child currently receive services, every parent should read, sign, and return the parent letter and compact (student also signs).  The policy and pink parent copies may be kept at home, but return the school and teacher’s copies to your child’s teacher.
