Welcome to Oakdale K-8 School

Message from the Principal

Dear Families and Friends,

What an exciting time this is for the Oakdale community!  As we begin the new 2014-15school year we want to welcome the following new staff members: Secretary: Claire Smith; Kinder teachers: Sofia Bobyk and Cathy Heard; 2nd grade teacher: Lisa Greene; 4th  grade teacher: Laurie Morrison; 6th  grade teachers: Gina Ripley and Richard McGuire; RSP teachers: Rebecca Ghansah and Ariel Carman; Speech: Kim Ogi; and Counselor: Sarah McElroy.  You will notice that some of our teachers will be teaching different grade levels:  Ms. Clark is now teaching 6th; Mr. Maher is now teaching 3rd; Mr. Cross is now teaching 7th; Ms. Kesty is now teaching 2nd; and Mrs. Roberson is now teaching 1st.

We have many exciting things planned for the 2014-15 school year: 1-3 ratio for students/ computers, a new computer lab, new technology programs like Lexia and Jiji, new desks for our classrooms, and a new look in the Oakdale office.

We will continue our  professional development and implementation of the Common Core State Standards in all classrooms, K-8.  Our new math program, Go Math!, is aligned with Common Core.  We will begin implementing the program in August.

Our promise to you is this: It does not matter which teacher your child has at Oakdale.  All children in every class will learn a guaranteed curriculum at high levels.  If your child needs extra time and support to learn at high levels, we guarantee they will receive it.

Please plan to join us for a Meet the Teacher popsicle party on Wednesday, August 13 from 2:30-3:00pm.  Class lists will also be posted on August 13. 

I am looking forward to working with you this school year!

Student and Parent Handbook

The 2012- 2013 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.
