Message from the Principal
Welcome back from Thanksgiving! I hope you had wonderful and restful time with your families. It was marvelous seeing all of you at Parent Teacher Conferences. I hope you had the chance to connect with your child’s teacher and find out more about your child’s academic progress. If you were not able to make it to you child’s parent teacher conference, please take the time to connect with the teacher as soon as possible. S/he will fill you in on progress as well as share the first trimester report card with you.
This is an exciting time of year as the weather becomes colder and the holidays (and a two week break from school) are in the near future! There are almost four weeks between now and Winter Break, which starts on Thursday, December 22. We have a lot of learning to get done in that time, so I hope that you will continue to remind your students to get enough rest, focus on school and READ READ READ!!!
When I walk through the classrooms at Oakdale, I am always struck by what an academically challenging and rigorous environment we offer at our school.
See you at Oakdale, Debra Chandler

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.
