Daily Announcements

Thanksgiving Holiday
From the Oakland family to yours, we wish you all a Very Happy Thanksgiving and hope to see you all back here safe and full of turkey on December 1st.

Project Angel Tree
Every year here at Oakland Primary the Guidance Department spearheads the Angel Tree Project. While many of us celebrate the holidays with lots of presents and food some of our students have very little. In an effort to make Christmas a little brighter for these students we sponsor the Angel Tree. The tree is covered with angels who need adopting. The tag will identify only the sex and age of the child and a corresponding number. Once you purchase and wrap the gift(s) for this child just return the tag and the gift(s) to the school and they will be delivered to the family. If you are interested in participating in this project please check-in with the office staff and they will direct you to guidance.
