A thankful heart...
As we wrap up the long weekend and the celebration of Thanksgiving, I want you all to know how very thankful I am to serve this school community. I am thankful for your partnership as we work together to ensure our students needs are met (academically and emotionally). I am thankful for your support in all that we do at Oakley Park. And I am so thankful for the outstanding staff that serves our students each day.
I wish you all a wonderful week ahead!
This Wednesday, December 4th Dismissal is at 11:35 am
Don't forget to Sign Up for Conferences!
Reminder: Elementary Parent/Teacher Conferences will be held on Thursday, December 12th. This will be an adjusted 1/2 day for students: Dismissal will be at 10:35. Conferences will be held from 11:30 pm - 7:30 pm. Parents/Caregivers will sign up using the Online Parent Teacher Conference Sign Up in Family Access.
In addition to your child’s classroom teacher, you may also choose to sign-up for conferences with our FAPES teachers: PE, Music, Art, and Media. These conferences are OPTIONAL but we encourage you to sign-up if you have concerns, would like more information, or want to connect with our wonderful FAPES staff.
Below you will find two resources to assist with scheduling. Please call the office (248-956-4100) if you need assistance.
Adpot a Family
Once again, the Oakley Park school community is coming together to help provide less fortunate families with a holiday that they deserve. Because of our OPE community's continuous generosity we have decided to adopt 4 families this year. These families live in our local area and have been identified to us as low-income or at risk through the WLCSD Head Start/GSRP program.
Please consider taking on one (or more!) of the requested gift donations listed in the sign-up genius. Thank you for your support as we help make the holidays a little brighter for these families!
