November/December 2016

Dear Parents/Guardians and Community Members,

We are approaching the end of the 1st Trimester, and I would like to thank you for the continued encouragement and support you are providing to our students.  The final day of the 1st term is scheduled for Friday, December 2nd, with no school the following Monday and Tuesday (5th & 6th) as teachers determine grades and take part in professional development.  Our Positive Behavior Support team is encouraging students to save up those Tiger Stripes for the Winter Giving Store coming up in December.  Students will have an opportunity to buy gifts for themselves, as well as family members.  Thanks to all of you who came out for Parent-Teacher Conferences and our Fall Fun Night this past week.  We are always looking for ways to connect our families to Oaklea. 

During this time of Thanksgiving, I would like to thank all of our students and parents who have contributed to our Turkey Dinner and Clothing Drives.  This is an excellent way for our kids to continue to learn the importance of community partnership, empathy, and service to others. 
It’s not too late to help with both causes.  Clothing can be bagged and donated at the Student Services office.  For the turkey drive, we will be taking in dinner items or monetary donations through this week.

Exciting news!  The Oregon Department of Education released annual report cards recently, and Oaklea received a “Level 4” designation in the area of academic growth in Language Arts and Math combined.  This puts our students in the second highest category in this important area.  Although overall scores will not be issued until next year, we are excited about the progress our students are making. 

To follow up on the letter I sent out last week, we continue to work with our kids on understanding and respecting our differences during this election season, as well as treating one another with kindness and empathy.  I appreciate all of the support parents are providing with that process as well.  Along the lines of making positive choices, students took part in Red Ribbon Week recently.  Our kids had the opportunity to commit to making healthy choices and being alcohol and drug free.  Angie Elstone (counselor) and Carol Puderbaugh (district nurse) continue to provide Healthy Friday lessons in 7th & 8th grade classes.  As always, if you would like to know more information about what is covered in health classes, grades 5-8, please don’t hesitate to stop by or to contact us. 

I hope you and your family have an enjoyable holiday season.  We also know this is a time of year where many of our students can use additional support and encouragement.  Please keep us informed with any information that would help our teachers and counselors support students in this regard.  As always, please feel free to call or e-mail me directly with any issues, suggestions, praises or concerns.
