Flying By!

Hello Oregon Trail Families!


We are closer to the last day of school this year than we are to the first day of school! The year has flown by! We have had a great year so far and hope to continue!


Thank you for all you do for your children! We love the progress and growth they've made and we hope you notice it too!


We know lots of students have been sick. We've had to fight sickness as a staff as well. It's no fun being sick! Please be aware that we always work with students when they've been gone. We try our best to make sure they're able to pick right back up where they left off and catch up quickly!


Have a great February!

Mr Matlock

Drop Off Zone

Please remember to be courteous other drivers as you drop off students in the morning. The drop off system works great and it works best when you pull forward and the students jump out of the car as you stop. Please take care of other concerns before you get to the drop off zone. The drop off line can really bottle neck and cause a back up into the road if it's not kept moving along.

Leaders of the Month

Leaders of the Month are selected from each grade level every month and on a rotating basis from our Specials classes. Leaders of the Month are the leaders among leaders at our school. They practice the 7 Habits to the best of their abilities. This is a new process and we're excited to recognize our awesome students! Framed pictures of Leaders of the Month are on display in the case in the 100 hall near the intersection opposite the big wagon wheel. Those frames are sent home with students when the new months pictures are placed.


Here are some of our Leaders of the Month.
