OES Fitness Ambassador Program Begins This Thursday!

See message from Mrs. Cabe below...please be sure to participate along with your assigned Fitness Ambassador. The more involved you are, the more engaged and receptive your students will be!


ALL
classes will have a PE Club member who will serve as your Fitness Ambassador. This student will teach a brief lesson on nutrition or health. We are using the Coordinated Approach to Child Health (CATCH) nutrition curriculum. Please help your Fitness Ambassador with the lesson and interact with the class to make the lesson engaging. As always, thanks for your cooperation and teamwork in our efforts to educate the whole child.

A Message from Dr. P

At Oakland, we talk a lot about F.A.I.L. and growth mindset. A couple of people have shared the image below and, as we head into the second half of the year, I find it most appropriate to share with you. My encouragement to you (along with this week's tidbit) is to find excitement and joy in the process. We are all growing, we are all learning. I desire this to be the "mindset" of our faculty as well as our students. As you watch the following video, think to the importance of helping our students set goals, understand learning objectives, and personalize instruction. This week, lets all make a concerted effort to praise the process to promote a growth mindset in all of us (adult & child)!
