Closing out the 2018-2019 School Year

Thank you all for such a successful school year. In addition to the hard work of our students and teachers, the family contributions in time, talent and treasure this year is one reason our school is such an amazing place for students to learn. As a school community, we faced unexpected challenges this year, but we were able to be flexible, supportive and come together for our students.

Best wishes to all of you for a safe and restful summer. Remember to keep reading and learning! We will see you back in August!

Mr. Cann

So many people have reached out regarding Mr. Cann and he very much appreciates your thoughts and prayers for his recovery. Please see the flyer on the OES Families PTO Facebook page for a benefit event happening over the summer.

Moby Max, Reflex Math and C-Palms Summer Resources

It is common for students to regress academically over the summer. Helping your child set a goal to read every day for at least 15 minutes and also practice skills using Moby Max or Reflex will help retain skills learned this year, as well as prepare for next year. If your child does not know the usernames and passwords, the teacher can provide it to him/her.

Additionally, the state of Florida has many free resources for students to use. To learn more about these resources, view this video. To access the tutorials and activities, click here.

Finally, additional resources and links can be located on our school web site, on the Student Portal page.

Happy Summer Learning!

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! :)
