OES Art Show

This Friday, May 17th, starting at 6:00 pm, we will have our OES Art Show. Every child will have a piece in the show. Mrs. Calabrese and her students have worked incredibly hard to make this event happen. You won't want to miss this evening of art appreciation!

Morning Arrival Time Reminders

Friendly reminder from our handbook about arrival time for the car line:

Drop Off Time: 8:00-8:30 a.m. Please do not line up until 7:50 am. Lining up earlier interferes with the middle school car line. · Do not drop children off in the front parking area and have them walk through parked cars and traffic. ALL FAMILIES ARE REQUIRED TO USE THE CAR LINE

Accelerated Reader Point Prizes

Our Oasis students have read quite a lot this school year! We will be announcing our limo ride winners this week on the news.

Also, almost 100 students earned enough points to qualify for the pool party. Due to the Yacht Club closing and other unexpected circumstances, we are substituting the pool party for a ticket to Sun Splash. Students who have earned this prize will be notified within the next few weeks.

Once again, we congratulate all of our students for reading so much this year!

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
