On behalf of our entire staff, thank you to our school community for the extra dose kindness and appreciation given this week! From yard signs and flowers to special email messages and more...thank you for honoring our staff. A special thank you to the members of the PTA, especially Jessica Mauer and Sarah Garrison for planning such a great week! The video is amazing...what a perfect final "gift" this week.

Mr. Nolan has created a chess club for all Oakley Park Students online. Visit his Google Classroom to view his instructional videos, which show parents and students how to log into the website Chess.com and become a member of our club. Students can play chess against other Oakley Park students virtually.

In addition, he has posted several read aloud videos including: Wizard of Oz, Lawn Boy, Stuart Little, and Charlotte’s Web.

Oakley Park Library Books

I have received some email regarding library books. Please keep these in a safe place and we will plan to collect when we return to school in August. For our Owls who will become Hawks, I will work with Mr. Taboh regarding a turn in plan at Creek.

Seeking Information for Next Year

2020-2021 Parent/Guardian Input Form

Placement of children for the next school year is a team process. The classroom teachers, special area teachers, and Mrs. Froning meet to consider the best placement for every child. Many aspects of a child’s development – academic, emotional, and social are very carefully considered. Because we view the process as so important, our staff will invest many hours to ensure the very best placement decisions. The staff working with your child has learned a great deal about his or her learning style, strengths, challenges, and opportunities for growth. In addition to individual needs, we also consider the balance of each classroom, so that optimal learning environments are created for all children. While it is never appropriate to request a specific teacher, if there is important information you wish to convey regarding your child’s learning needs, you are invited to submit the form linked below by Friday, May 15th . We understand that this is a sensitive issue. In fairness to all children and staff members, please trust in us to handle placement with the care and sensitivity that is necessary for these important decisions.

2020-2021 School Year Planning Form

Your child(ren) are important to us, and we would like to ensure that we provide them with the very best possible educational environment. Therefore, it is absolutely essential that we know which students will be returning to Oakley Park next year. The information you provide assists us in determining class sizes and the number of classrooms per grade level.

If your family will NOT be returning to Oakley Park for the 2020-2021 school year, please complete the form linked below by Friday, May 15th. *5th graders who are attending middle school next year do NOT need to complete this form.
