Message from the Principal

Oakdale Families,

             While we are nearing the end of the school year, there is still a lot of important work to be done!  Today we start state testing in grades 7-8.  During your students’ testing week, please remember to make sure your student is getting enough sleep and eating a healthy breakfast, in addition to getting to school on time daily.  Students with perfect testing attendance, who stay focused during the test, will earn fun incentives.  Students in grades K-2 will also be working on end of year testing this month. 

The weather is getting warmer, and our lost and found box is bursting with coats and jackets.  If you are missing anything, please check the lost and found prior to June 1.

All library books are now due back at school.  While it seems early, Ms. Molina needs to take inventory of the LMC this month.  Please look around your house for any missing books that belong to Oakdale.

There are a lot of fun activities scheduled for the end of the month, and I am looking forward to seeing you around Oakdale!

 

Debra Chandler, Principal

Student and Parent Handbook

The 2014-2015 Student and Parent Handbook is a great resource for families to find answers to many questions. In this handbook, you can read about Oakdale's attendance policy, dress code, behavior expectations and policies, daily routines and procedures around school, academic responsibilities of the students, and several other topics as well. Please take a moment to read through this information.

CommonCoreStandards.jpg

The Common Core Standards are the new learning objectives student will encounter in K-12 schools.  Some things will remain the same.  For instance, in early grades, students will still learn the foundational reading and math concepts, but there are other significant shifts among all the grade levels that require our attention and study.  You will see your student reading and interacting with more non-fiction text.  You will see a new emphasis on deep conceptual understanding in math.  You will see your student being challenged to cite evidence that supports their answers in both reading and math.  Our teachers are preparing for the changes Common Core Standards will bring by studying the standards, learning teaching strategies to use in the classroom, and finding resources to use for this type of instruction.   We began this work last school year and we will continue to prepare during late start Wednesdays and staff development days.

Please visit our district's website to find an abundance of information on the Common Core Standards.

School and District News

8/17/17

On Monday, Aug. 21 our region will experience a partial solar eclipse which will peak at 10:17 a.m. Although this is a spectacular event to witness, safety for you and our students is of paramount importance. Looking at the sun for any length of time without protection can result in permanent damage to your eyes. The only safe way to look directly at the sun or partially eclipsed sun is through special-purpose solar filters, such as "eclipse glasses" or handheld solar viewers. Homemade filters or ordinary sunglasses, even very dark ones, are not safe for looking at the sun; they transmit thousands of times too much sunlight.

 

Please view NASA's flyer regarding the eclipse for more viewing and safety tips.

Twin Rivers parents and guardians will soon receive the results of the rigorous computer-based tests students took last spring. The district will mail individual student score reports by late August. 

 

Preparing for the release of the reports, the California Department of Education has produced a video that will help you understand your child's score report. We encourage families to contact their school principal if they have any questions.
