2019-2020 Kindergarten Open House

We will be having an Open House for prospective kindergarten families who will be starting next school year. This will take place on Thursday, November 8th at 6:00 pm. Please share this information with your friends and families who might be interested in learning more about what Oasis has to offer our kindergarten students.

Halloween Parade

Our Halloween Parade will begin at 9:30 on October 31st. In order to facilitate students safely arriving in the morning, parents and families will not be able to arrive for the parade until 9:00. Thank you for understanding. Also, please make sure student costumes are appropriate for elementary school. Students should not bring pretend weapons or have costumes that are too gruesome for our younger students.

Helping Our Own Through Service (H.O.O.T.S.)

K-Kids and our guidance department are working jointly together collecting nonperishable items that would be desired at any Thanksgiving meal such as cans of vegetables, boxes of mashed potatoes, boxes of stuffing, cans of cranberry sauce, etc. We are also looking for donations of gift cards to Publix. Donations will first go to families in our school who may need assistance at this time of year. We would like to make baskets for those families. Any remaining donations will go to the Cape Coral Caring Center. Please have all donations sent in by Wednesday, November 14. Thanks for your help!!!! Don't forget that the class with the most donations will receive a pizza celebration and the class with the second most donations will receive a popsicle celebration!!!

If you or any families at Oasis who you may know could benefit from this Thanksgiving collection, please send an e-mail to our guidance counselor at or Mr. Zedd at Everything will be kept confidential. We just want to be able to help our own this Thanksgiving!!!! You can also fill out this letter in the Friday Flyers and return to your child's homeroom teacher by November 14.

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.
