Field Day

This week we are having modified Field Days. We had to do some re-calibrating, so that we didn't have to cancel this fun event. One change is that this will be a students and staff only event. However, there are some opportunities for parents to volunteer to work a Station/Activity. If you would like to be considered, and you are cleared to volunteer, please complete this quick survey. Coach Bowman will be contacting by email or phone you if you are selected.

The schedule is below. Students should come on their Field Day, wearing sunscreen, Spirit Shirt, athletic shoes and lots of water. A hat is also suggested.

If you would like to donate a case of water to the class that day, it would be greatly appreciated.

Student Online Academic Resources

This school year, we have been working hard to provide useful resources for students, which can be accessed at school and home, to help them with a personalized track of learning activities.

Moby Max presents Reading, Math, Social Studies and Science in a fun and engaging way. To find out more information about Moby Max, view this presentation.

Reflex Math is a new program designed to improve students' math facts fluency. Students work on increasing their retrieval time on addition, subtraction, multiplication and division facts. To learn more about Reflex Math, visit the virtual tour.

Students at Oasis also use other online resources, including Khan Academy and support for our new Science curriculum. All of these links have been compiled on our school web site, underneath our Student Portal. You can also access it using this link. While you are there, be sure to click on the Florida Standards Resources. It provides useful tutorials linked to Florida Standards.

Happy Learning! :)

Reminder about Car Line

Please remember in the morning that cars can use both lanes on the side of the building and will merge into an every other traffic flow when vehicles get to the front of the building. Please review the map for clarification.

Also, please remember that in the afternoon, the OHS entrance is not double lanes (like it is in the morning). It is only one lane in in the afternoons. Thank you so much for your patience and understanding.

Updated OES Gate TImes

Reminder, the OES gate is no longer a point of entry. Vehicles will be able to enter through the OHS gate.

Please note the updated times that the OES automatic gate will be open.

6:00 am - 8:45 am

1:30 pm - 4:00 pm
