Oakland Elementary School
Rockin' Through the School Year!
Hello Oakland Families,
We hope that you are staying warm this cold winter. Please remember to send your child with appropriate winter gear. When we are able, we get them outside as much as possible.
Have a wonderful weekend!

D34 Band & Orchestra Boosters Fundraiser
The Great Kindness Challenge
We challenge you to come up with a Home Edition of Kind Acts!
Kindness always matters - and even a little bit makes the world a brighter place.
- There will be no candy or food items that are allowed to be passed out, so students should not bring them in
- There will not be a classroom party - but there will be time set aside for passing out Valentines should a student choose to bring them
- If students are bringing Valentines, there should be enough for each child in their classroom
- If you have any questions, please let your child's teacher know

Notes from the Nurse
If you haven't already turned it in, dental exam forms are due by May 15th per the state mandate.
It is recommended that you put your child's name in their outerwear so it is easy to return items when they are left behind.

Parent Advisory Committee
The annual Parent Advisory Committee will meet on Tuesday, February 8 at the 6:30pm Board of Education meeting. The Parent Advisory Committee will update the Family Student Handbook for 2022-2023 as well as revisit Board Policy 7:230 - Misconduct By Students With Disabilities. All are welcome to attend. We are looking for a few community members and/or parents from each building that would be interested in committing to attend and be part of the activity formally. If interested, please email Robin Nottingham at email@example.com.
Incorporating downtime and free play into students' lives is a counterintuitive way to boost learning.

Staff and students will be receiving training on Google meet during the month of January. As of January 31st, Antioch CCSD 34 will not be using Zoom for any quarantine students or e-learning days.
All quarantined students will have the Zoom app pushed out to their iPad once they are identified by each building nurse. Please be patient with this process, as it may take up to 24 hours for this app to get sent to the student’s iPads. We apologize in advance for any inconvenience this may cause.
