A Message From Our Principal
Dear Oakwood Parents,
Thank you for allowing your students to participate in the district wide food drive last week. Through our Penny Wars: Return of the Food Drive campus competition last week, we managed to raise more money and collect more food for the food bank this year than Oakwood has for the last decade. I am truly blown away by the generosity of our campus. It was a lot of fun for a great cause and our students did an amazing job! I couldn’t be more proud of their efforts.
We will begin another round of STAAR Testing next Monday, May 9. Our 6th grade students will take the math test on Monday and their reading test on Tuesday. Our 5th grade students will take their science test on Wednesday, May 11. We will also have students taking make up tests and retesting on Thursday and Friday. Our campus will be closed to visitors Monday – Wednesday.
At the end of this month we will have a faculty student basketball game for all students, 5th grade field days, and 6th grade picnics. Our students have been informed that participation in these events is a privilege and that their participation will be determined by their behavior. Students with multiple behavior incidents or serious offenses will not be allowed to take part in these events. We will certainly communicate this with you directly if anything occurs that will keep your child from participating.
Our last day of school for the 2015-2016 school year will be Friday, May 27. This will be an early release day as the students will be dismissed at 1:30 PM. Students will have the opportunity to eat lunch and our buses will run as usual. Please be sure to ask your students for their report cards as we will be sending them home with them that last day.
It has been a wonderful year and we are looking forward to finishing strong. A lot is going to happen in the next four weeks and it will all be over before we know it. Please let us know in advance of any absences that you foresee for your student. This will help us ensure that they receive all of their makeup work.
As always, thank you for the opportunity to work with your amazing students.
