Welcome to Oakdale K-8 School
Dear Parents/Guardians and Students,
Welcome to the 2012-2013 year! I would like to take this opportunity to welcome all of our returning families along with our new family and friends to Oakdale School. I hope you had an enjoyable and relaxing summer break and you are now ready for an energizing 2012-2013 school year. The year ahead will be filled with many new and exciting changes for our families and students. Included in these changes are the additions of new staff members, student programs aimed at supporting and enhancing student achievement, and increased opportunities for family involvement.
I believe that working as partners in your child’s education is vital if he/she is to be successful. And like many good partnerships, we as educators must keep parents fully informed of their child’s progress. Therefore, during the school year you will receive correspondence from teachers regarding how your child is doing on his/her school work, along with assignments and project deadlines. Families are the most important teacher in their child’s life, and their involvement in education is critical. The staff at Oakdale is here to assist you in the successful educational growth of your child.
Again, I would like to welcome you back. Together, we can ensure a fulfilling and rewarding year ahead.
Oakdale Eagles: Soar to Success!!!
