As we come to the close of the 3rd quarter, please remind your child of some important deadlines.

If they are reading for a milestone for the SSYRA Jr. or SSYRA program, the reading, testing, and updating of their reading log card, must be accomplished by the end of school day this Thursday, March 14. This includes the reading of 6 books for an invitation to the Election Party, where students select their favorite book among the 15 state-nominated titles (both SSYRA Jr. and SSYRA) held on Friday, April 12. Or for a seat on the Battle of the Books the reading of all 15 books is required - SSYRA Jr. Battle held Friday afternoon of April 26 or SSRYA Battle held the evening of April 30.

After the deadline, students will still be encouraged to continue reading the state nominated books and will receive a brag tag until May 17th.

Also, Thursday, March 14, is the deadline to earn points toward their AR Fun Day Goal. Attached is the requirement letter for your reference.

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
