Welcome to Oakdale K-8 School
Message from the Principal
We are continuing to work hard at Oakdale on a daily basis. Thank you to all of the adults who came out to our LCAP information meetings held in January. We were able to obtain some valuable input from our stakeholders, and we are looking forward to implementing some of the suggestions as soon as possible.
One suggestion from parents was the creation of an Oakdale Facebook Page. This is a place where families can be in the loop about the happenings at our school. We encourage you to LIKE our Facebook Page– Oakdale Elementary School K-8.
We welcome our counselor, Mrs. McElroy, back from maternity leave on February 1. She delivered her twins, Riley and Noah, back in September. While she has been at home with her babies, Ms. Brogdon has kept things going. While we are currently sharing Ms. Brogdon with another school, she is still able to help us half time. Both Mrs. McElroy and Ms. Brogdon are an integral part of our team at Oakdale.
Our basketball season is in full swing. The middle school boys and girls are playing their hearts out and making us proud! Middle school soccer will start at the end of February. Coach D and Mr. Cross have all the information and are looking forward to a great 2015 season!
I am looking forward to seeing you around Oakdale!

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.
