Congratulations to our Lighthouse finalists, Rhonda Gamboa and Michelle Williams and our Lighthouse winner, Katrina Berge! We are so fortunate to have such hard working and dedicated teachers at OES!

FSA This Week

Third, fourth and fifth grade will be taking the Math section of the FSA. Session 1 will be May 7th and Session 2 will be May 8th.. This is an 80 minute test. Please make sure your child gets plenty of rest and a good breakfast in the morning. They have worked hard all year and they are prepared.

Fifth grade will be testing on Science on May 9th and May 10th.

For more information, refer to the FSA testing letter posted on our web site.

Due to our testing schedule, lunch times for some grade levels has been changed. Since half of our school will be testing on Tuesday and Wednesday, please do not schedule lunch visits with your child on that day.

If you are planning to eat lunch with your child this week or next, please contact your child's teacher to verify lunch times on FSA testing days.

Morning Arrival Time Reminders

Friendly reminder from our handbook about arrival time for the car line:

Drop Off Time: 8:00-8:30 a.m. Please do not line up until 7:50 am. Lining up earlier interferes with the middle school car line. · Do not drop children off in the front parking area and have them walk through parked cars and traffic. ALL FAMILIES ARE REQUIRED TO USE THE CAR LINE

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
