MESSAGE FROM THE PRINCIPAL
Welcome to Oakland Primary School’s Web site! I hope you will enjoy your visit and will find the pages both informative and helpful.
Oakland Primary is proud of its heritage and tradition and we are dedicated to the total development of every K4-1st grade student. The best teachers in town can be found at Oakland and we sincerely value the community partnerships and parental support that we receive.
I consider it a privilege to serve both you and your child as the principal of Oakland Primary. From my experience as an educator and a parent, only with the partnership of home and school can our children meet their highest potential. To meet this goal we must communicate frequently. You can expect monthly communication from me to keep you informed of special programs and events coming up at school. Your child’s teacher will keep you informed of your child’s progress in the classroom concerning growth, both academically and socially. Together we can help our students reach their full potential in all areas of their lives.
The staff at Oakland believes that learning is a lifelong process; it is a journey, not a destination. Students come to us with a variety of backgrounds, skills and abilities. The diversity of our school offers real life experiences for students to learn and grow. Staff members are committed to providing the best possible educational experience for each child. Various instructional strategies and techniques are employed to reach all students. Our teachers continue to grow professionally through district and building level staff development. Students are expected to be responsible for their learning and social skills development. Of course, we will rely upon you, the parent to help your child in developing these skills also.
We truly believe in educating the whole child at Oakland. With that in mind, our school theme for 2016-2017 is “Building the Future- One Child at a Time”. I invite you to browse our website, volunteer at our school, and feel free to contact us at any time. We are very proud of the great things happening at our school. We hope that you can share in this exciting educational journey with us. We look forward to seeing each of you as we move into the 2016-2017 school year.
