1st - 5th grade students and parents - Meet the Teacher is Wednesday, August 23rd. Please plan to arrive anytime between 9am and noon. Teacher assignment letters will be mailed August 17th. Wednesday you will have the opportunity to meet your child’s teacher, register for before/after school programs, join the PTA, purchase school spirit wear, sign up to be a carpool/walker student, confirm bus assignments, and register as a parent volunteer. To make the day even more festive, wear your favorite attire of turquoise and orange! That would be #owlsome.
Oakview is on the lookout for 4th-5th graders to serve as student leaders, facilitators, and mentors to new owls. We need responsible and caring students who are ready to show off Oakview and continue to create a positive climate within our school. You may be asked to lead a tour of the school, assist a new student, and welcome families at school events. Student Ambassadors will meet once a month with Ms. Poe, our school counselor, during lunch to discuss new ideas and provide feedback for our program. Apply here.
School supply lists can be found here.
Kindergarten families (parents and students) will have Meet the Teacher on Friday, September 1st at 9:30am!
