Thank you for your honesty, time and attention to this matter.

Thank you PTO and the entire Oaktree Community

What a great week this has been! Thank you to our PTO for the daily food, snacks, fun, lunches, cards, and anything else I might have left out. We have the best parents and family support of anyplace I have worked. Thank you for making this a special Staff Appreciation Week!

Student Drop Off

My dad likes to say, "It's their world and we are all living in it." We have been noticing some families dropping kids off in the staff parking lot in the morning instead of using the drop off like the rest of our families. This is an overall small number of people, but I want to put it out there to all of our parents and families so that people cannot say that everyone is not getting the same message. To start with, it is disrespectful to the families who are following our procedures. By doing this you are teaching your kids that rules are for other people and you are teaching them that they do not have to respect the school because you don't. After all, if you did, you would get in the line at west end like everyone else and wait in line. Secondly, some of parents we have seen and spoken with are parking in the handicapped parking. Again, this is disrespectful to our families and students who have disabilities and need those parking spaces. Remember, our kids are always watching. If you have questions about the drop off process, contact our office and we will be glad to help you out.

Here are some upcoming dates:

May 12 Kona Ice 2nd & 3rd 1:30-3:30
