Dear Oakview Parents,
The 2017 - 2018 school year is almost here! We, along with the OVES staff, are excited to begin this year with your family. We are fortunate to be part of a great school community. We look forward to making this another #owlsome year for the students!
Oakview Elementary continues to grow and we will be adding additional students this year! We will have seven classrooms at each grade level in grades K, 1, and 3. We will have six 2nd grade classrooms and four classrooms each at 4th and 5th grades. We will be welcoming some additional staff owls to our team this year. Be sure to read all of the biographies on the school's website.
We especially welcome Mr. Chris Culp as our Principal Intern this year. Mr. Culp has most recently been a teacher at Cary High School and he is completing his Masters of School Administration this year from NCSU. Welcome Mr. Culp!
Our first opportunity to meet this year will be on Wednesday, August 23, 2017. Doors will open for our Meet the Teacher at 9:00 a.m. and end at 12:00 noon for first through fifth grade students. Parents and students will be able to meet their teachers and visit classrooms. Parents may also register students for Before and After School Care, and confirm bus routes and times with Transportation representatives in the media center. In the cafeteria, parents may sign up for carpool numbers and set up meal accounts. The “Owl Shack” will be open to register parents/guardians to volunteer in the school. This registration process must be completed and approved before anyone is allowed to volunteer. Also, in the Owl Shack, information on how to access the HomeBase Parent Portal will be available. Our Oakview PTA will be present if you have not yet joined. Learn how you can support our students and school community!
Letters will be mailed via USPS on August 17 to all first through fifth grade families. This letter will incude the name of your child's teacher for this school year.
Kindergarten families should have received a letter recently indicating the staggered entry date during the week of August 28th. Kindergarten Meet the Teacher will be held at 9:30am on Friday, September 1, 2017.
We are sure this will be an #owlsome year for OVES! We look forward to seeing you on August 23rd!
