Welcome to Oakdale K-8 School
Message from the Principal
Welcome back to another wonderful school year at Oakdale! There is so much going on, and we are excited!
I encourage you to become involved at Oakdale. You can volunteer in your child’s classroom, in the library, or even help with office jobs.
Our new computer lab is up and running! All students K-3 will have weekly access to the lab where they will use programs like Jiji, Imagine Learning, Accelerated Reader and Lexia. All students 4-8 are already using Google Chromebooks. Please use the links in the online resources box on this page to access these programs at home. Please stay tuned for technology updates throughout the year!
There is a lot happening, and we want to thank you for your support!
I am looking forward to working with you this school year!

Student and Parent Handbook
The 2014-2015 Student and Parent Handbook is a great resource for families to find answers to many questions. In this handbook, you can read about Oakdale's attendance policy, dress code, behavior expectations and policies, daily routines and procedures around school, academic responsibilities of the students, and several other topics as well. Please take a moment to read through this information.
The Common Core Standards are the new learning objectives student will encounter in K-12 schools. Some things will remain the same. For instance, in early grades, students will still learn the foundational reading and math concepts, but there are other significant shifts among all the grade levels that require our attention and study. You will see your student reading and interacting with more non-fiction text. You will see a new emphasis on deep conceptual understanding in math. You will see your student being challenged to cite evidence that supports their answers in both reading and math. Our teachers are preparing for the changes Common Core Standards will bring by studying the standards, learning teaching strategies to use in the classroom, and finding resources to use for this type of instruction. We began this work last school year and we will continue to prepare during late start Wednesdays and staff development days.
Please visit our district's website to find an abundance of information on the Common Core Standards.
