Earth Day Celebration

On May 13th, our campus will be full of our elementary students and volunteers from Community Health as we come together to enhance and nurture our gardens, trees, and pond. We will be busy planting new plants and flowers, mulching, and experiencing hands on activities to help us learn more about our natural resources and our own health. All students will spend several hours outdoors and taking care of our small patch of our planet. A big THANK YOU to our PFO for providing Earth Day t-shirts for each child and staff member! Our theme this year is Save the Bees! Teachers and students will be learning about these essential pollinators that are vital to the success of our gardens.

Prior to this big event, our Kids in Action Club will be working alongside the employees of Salesforce this Friday to install an "insect hotel" down near our prairie. An insect hotel is a great place for pollinators and other insects to stay in the winter and to have year long shelter. There are always great things going on at Oaklandon!

Flower Sale Pick Ups

Don't forget to come by and pick up the flowers you ordered from Tuttles Orchards on Thursday, May 5th between 2:00-6:30 pm! Flower pick up is at our school and parents need to park in the side parking lot.

Title 1 Update

At our next PFO meeting at 6:30 pm on May 10th, parents will have the opportunity to give feedback to help us as we take a look at our Title 1 policies. Your input is vital to our school's success. We hope you can make it to this important meeting.
