5th Grade Transition to Middle School

As we prepare to receive our 3rd quarter progress reports, 5th grade students and parents are beginning to think about their transition to middle school. Middle schools have curriculum nights for students and parents to visit and learn more about the school. Our counselors have information on their webpages for you.

Here is a list of upcoming curriculum nights. Please visit the middle school website for more information.

BREAKOUT Night Coming to Oakview!

Families will try to breakout of Oakview by solving Science, Math, and Engineering problems on three grade level halls (K-1, 2-3, or 4-5) depending on the age of your child. Each hallway will have three activities or challenges to solve which will then give the family one clue to the final breakout puzzle. After collecting 6 puzzle pieces, families will go to Oakview's Media Center or Art Room to solve the final puzzle, stop the timer, and BREAKOUT of Oakview! We will also have Estimation jars,, 3D printing demonstrations, science fair projects, and STEM business presentations set up for more fun!

Join us on Thursday, March 7th, 4:45 to 6:45 to see if YOU can breakout of Oakview!

IMPORTANT--Your Lowe's Foods Card needs to be relinked!

Last year, we had 45 parents sign up with the Lowe's Foods Cart to Class program and PTA was able to earn over $600! However, not everyone is aware that you have to link your card to our PTA every year! So, if you haven't recently linked your card, please click HERE and take a few minutes to relink your card so that we can continue to receive this grocer's support!
