A Special Message from Mrs. Froning

Dear Families,


Please accept my heartfelt gratitude for all that you are doing! I truly appreciate and respect ALL that you are juggling during this time. For each family, the circumstances are slightly different based on health, employment, and availability of resources, etc. Thank you for helping supporting your student and their engagement with their Google classroom lessons/activities and assignments each day while attending to so many other things. I am hopeful the changes implemented this past week, in the weekly school plan, went smoothly for all.



Ensuring students are interacting with core concepts to be covered in the coming weeks (in Math, Reading and Writing) is very important as we look to prepare students for the next school year. In addition to learning new concepts, engaging in the Google classroom also holds great value for our students socially and emotionally as they engage with teachers and classmates. Our staff is here to support families with this endeavor. PLEASE reach out to me or your students' teacher if we can help with technical challenges, questions related to lessons, student engagement, food insecurities and more!


I continue to be in awe of our staff as they remain deeply commitment to supporting our students academically and social/emotionally. Their collaboration with one another has been inspiring and I hope motivating/engaging to your and your family!


It is my privilege to serve this school community each and every day!


Take care & Be well!

Kristin Froning

Oakley Park gives to others!

I was very proud to donate wipes, gloves and hand sanitizer to the Commerce Fire Department on behalf the entire Oakley Park community! The generosity of our families in helping with classroom supplies was spread to our community through the helping hands of Commerce Township Fire & Rescue! Chief Dundas, Mr. Wilson and Mr. Caswell were very thankful and said all items would be quickly distributed as there is great need in and around our community.
