Welcome to Oakdale K-8 School
Message from the Principal
It is hard to imagine we are one week away from the end of our first Trimester! You should be hearing from your child’s teacher very shortly about a conference time. During your child’s parent teacher conference, you will get a chance to sit down with your child’s teacher and discuss his/ her progress this year. The teacher will go over the first trimester report cards, tell you where your child is performing academically, and share other information with you as well. The positive and productive partnership between the school and home is especially critical, so we thank you in advance for making sure you attend your child’s conference.
We hope to see everyone out at Skate Night on Thursday, November 12. This is a fun Oakdale community event held at Foothill Skate in from 6-8 PM. Rumor has it you might even see some teachers on roller skates!
Our Parent Resource Center is open on Wednesdays from 9-10am in the Library Media Center. We sure could use your help! Parents help teachers complete projects, and we like to make sure we have enough parents to get the prep work done!
Finally, if you are interested in serving on our district PAC (Parent Advisory Committee), please contact me as soon as possible. We would love to have an enthusiastic group of parents representing our school. Dinner and childcare are provided.
Looking forward to seeing you at conferences!
Trish Wood, Principal

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.
