DONUTS WITH GROWN UPS: FRIDAY 3/31 8:30-10:00 AM
Donuts will be available to students who bring a grown up to shop with them at the book fair! Our morning event will be open from 8:30-10:00 AM. Students who are still shopping after the bell rings at 9:15 AM will not be counted tardy to class. Oakridge is growing & our parking is limited, so we encourage adults who have a more flexible schedule to come later in the morning to allow for those who may have limited time before work to shop with their student.

Canvas for Parents
Canvas is the Learning Management System used by PreK-12th grade teachers and students. It serves as a platform where teachers can post assignments, create discussion boards, and upload content like PowerPoints and instructional videos. For students, Canvas creates a one stop shop to see assignment details, due dates, and learning resources for all their courses. At teachers' discretion, students are also able to submit assignments through Canvas.
Using a web browser or a mobile app, parents can create observer accounts to view assignment details, due dates, and course materials. Infinite Campus is still the official platform for course grades and student attendance. To view students' courses, parents need a pairing code. Students can generate a pairing code for their parents by signing into Canvas and going to "Account" in the upper left hand corner, then to "Settings" where there will be an option on the right side of the screen to "Pair with Observer".
